I guess you could call it the "Western Bar".

(for those thinking "What?..... Western Bar???" It's because it would be like a western bar's doors opening and closing)

Not that I can even dream, but is axling possible in a refueling position? One handed or two person pairs?

I would love to be able to axel with one hand.. the would be awesome.. but with both handles in the hand.. cant pull the one handle enough to pull off the axel.. but Flic- Flaks is possible...

With the docked axel.. if you would be in docked position... upside down and side across the window... just separate for a split second axel and then go back to dock... would be fun to try... GRIn

I'm full of ideas, just most of them are either being done or are being experimented with.
The Axel while docking I was thinking that if the lead kite started the axle just slightly before the next kite then the lead kite would seperate just enough for clearance. Wonder what it would look like if the two kites were docked in reverse? Might look cool if say IQuad could get in a ball formation real tight tail to tail and instead of a big burst out everyone axles.

Since Watty came up with the Western Bar, what would it look like to have during a mega fly, to have four Rev's kiss, two in a upside down V just bellow the four and a U under them. Like a smiley face. Then the four that are kissed preform the Western Bar to look like a bewildered blinking set of eyes.

Just a thought. Looks cool in my head.

Steve,
That's amazing stuff. I guess using the tons of brake that you iQuad guys encourage, allows you to "handle" the moves because the movements are so slight. Of course, your talent so far exceeds the theory of it all.

Dont know what all the fuss is about. I was flying 3 Revs at once the other Day.

Was it one in each hand and one from my waist I hear you say?

No it was a lot more difficult than that.

I REALY had to concentrate.

No not one between my teeth.

It was................

3 stacked, one behind the other.

Steve if you make it over here next Year be sure to look me up and I will show you how to do it.

Cheers all. I will try to shut up now for a little while. :devil:

Ok Steve, how about this? Fly both right handles in your right hand and both left handles in your left hand. Couldn't you then do your Axels?
