[...] if you include a set of Force-3 trading cards (My favourite Rev Team) I'll order now otherwise I assume you guys will be bringing a stack to Portsmouth/Bristol?

Just take a look on your back Jonesey - you'll find plenty of F3 publicity stickers etc. there.

As for the trading cards, no Force-3, sorry... But yes, we'll have a stack with us on our UK trip. ;)


Great. I'l swap you a 'F3 Movable Balast Man' for a 'iQuad Monkey'.

Baloo, huh ?
I haven't added anything to this thread. :confused!:

Sorry Choccy, it was in response to the post from your evil alter ego Groz. :devil:

Please accept my most humble and abject apologies for the mistook I make. :innocent:

Hey guys, we've only sold one of these in the US and two overseas...

Although I was hoping to avoid it, we've now opened up ordering via PayPal for both the US and abroad. ;)

==

US customers, send $22 USD via PayPal and we'll mail First Class to anywhere in the USA.

Foreign (non-US) buyers only, we will accept $25 USD via PayPal (includes postage, packaging and PayPal fees on our end).


==

With ten pilots going to Berkeley end of July, we really need some funds to assist with our lodging expenses for that event. :blushing:

Per the table of contents listed in the first post, it's not an instructional DVD... The only tip per se is the Rev axel tutorial.

Tons of great footage though, both bodies and kite, on field and street.

Well I've had a chance to watch most but not all the DVD now - great fun and very inspirational! I wanna go out and fly NOW! What do you mean it's pitch black?

I particularly enjoyed the Philly & street flying segments. Rocky never looked so good :rolleyes: Did you guys ever get moved on by the police or security at any of those venues?

Makes it all look soooooo easy! I'm so looking forward to the clinic now.

As mentioned, no problems playing it on my multiregion player. Highly recommended. The 2007 clips are a nice bonus, even if some are a little bit low resolution (40" TV doesn't help ;) )

Buy a copy today!

That's the part I'm really looking forward to seeing! I've been to the Philly Art Museum many times as my Sister used to live right around there. :)

Nope, never did... But Steve and I really work to engage and endear whoever might be watching.

Get 'em so fascinated by the kites and what they do, that they're too stunned or interested to boot us. <grin>

We also pride ourselves on being able to safely work unusual spots, I don't recommend it for new or intermediate pilots.

Makes it all look soooooo easy! I'm so looking forward to the clinic now.

The team tries to focus on applied, continuous control of the overall line tension, as most of us fly by adjusting that tension to control, with applied understanding of inertia, rhythm and continual drive/speed control... Maximum result, without having to work too hard.

What we focus on at our clinics is rudimentary understanding of Rev flight dynamics, and applied techniques.

In a sense, it is easy. ;)

I might be tempted yet....
bring some to the clinic in Portsmouth hey JB.

For sure, thanks Choccy. :)
