On hol's in Southern France so no broadband etc but managed to sneak out to a local town with 3G coverage to file this report!!!

Spent yesterday setting up a test stack of my 2~4, Blast and Shockwave.... not much room to fly where I am (they stuck a pool right in the middle of the flying field!) .. managed a little airtime on short lines ... enough to prove the concept..... will continue testing on return to civilisation...

Arranging kites round the swimming pool :rolleyes:

Is that the Rev version of bagging a deckchair before the European neighbours get there?

Would have been even better with a sonic on the front. But of course you missed bidding on that despite my emails. :)

I've done that with a Sonic, Shockwave and Blast it seemed to be a little bit more fun that way.

Course a speed stack with all sonic's and shockwaves in light wind 5-7 is amazing as well :kid_smartass:

Interesting Bazzer Eyes ya got there as well, I think I need to move to the UK and work with you or Brian you 2 accumulate kites rather quickly :kid_devlish:
Jim,
Ft. Taber Park & Brenton Point

Rev's are like a carbon framed out-of-body experience

Pool is a little 'scrotum tightening' at first but perfect once your in!! ... Middle of nowhere so frustrating from a coms point of view (using a small cafe's wifi currently to check in)...

Have a large paddock/meadow/field as part of the property but grass/thistles/weeds too high for kite lines... any advice??

so as I have a little time on my hands and room to have all my kites laid out ready to go (should the bloody wind ever arrive)... are we saying I should add my supersonics to the front of the stack??

By the way reference the pulling round the pool ... Mrs J was busy tanning bits that don't normally see the sun so had she even noticed I had the camera out I would not be worrying about pulling anything!!

Substitute copious quantities of wine for kites. You will forget all about your disappointment. Will also assist with the pain from the cosmetic surgery you refer to above, but which uses words I can't bring myself to utter!

My little mind was going way to fast after reading this thread after my question of how warm was the pool. :kid_devlish:
I'm so tarded some times I can't help but smile. :D
Well, if you weren't on holiday (I must have missed that somewhere) I would suggest a little midnight burn to clear the field of the line snagging obsticles.
As for getting in trouble if caught with the camera while she was, well you know, the pool suddenly becomes your friend. ;)
Scrotum tightening water causes shrinkage as us men know. Between the sucked up feeling and the actual shrinkage the hope is that it takes so looong to find what at that moment is going to be snipped that eventually the surgen will maybe give up in either frustration or cause it might be funny at the time. But thats another joke and I'm sure I've strayed off into un-understanding land again. :blushing:

With the pull of stacked Revs my arms felt literally longer. Like touching my knees without bending over kinda long. Hmmmm, I wonder if this could stop the whole man compinsating for COUGH, COUGH. Feel me? :kid_devlish:
Not literally anyway, (feel me?) as I'm still thinking about the whole pullin' thing and if it would work.

Dean :kid_content:

I'll reach out and touch someone if it does. Who wants to be first?
You know I'm kidding, no panty bunching. LOL, it don't work. If it did we'd all pretty much have to wear 3 legged pants. :w00t:

more pics of my first attempt here http://www.revkites....u...m&album=154

got a bit of video too but am making some proper staking lines + adding pig tails to each kite for easy setup etc... so will update on progress when Ive tested it all a bit more in decent breeze (no more then 5 knots!!) .....

Oh and I have now axeled my progressive stack successfully (with witnesses!) after several "accidental" attempts ... looks really cool when all three kites are floating ... and even better when they snap back into order ... not so good when they swap places :lol:

"witnesses"? I thing the term "tutors" would be more apt. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.... ;)
