Howdy,
I've been messing with this a little. One Rev One hand. Anyone out there who does this have pics of they're hand position. Been having problems.

This is harder than I thought. First time I tried it I was able to go strait to the top of the window and turn both ways then land it. Every attempt after that is just frustration. Finding that hand hold to be able to move the individual handles requires some hand strength. I won't give up on this. :kid_brooding: Not till I spank it to submission. LOL, I fly two duallies at once. I'm sure I'll get this eventually.

i tried it a few times i had it for a few minutes and then i got tangled up a little.. gonna keep at it .. the key is getting both of your hands to do the same thing at once witch with 1 handed flying is not eazy.. i can fly 1 handed with my left hand pretty good but my right needs work .. once you can get both hands flying great only then will you be able to do it

I was advised to learn my "weaker hand" first.

That way, whenever I get into trouble, my weaker hand has the muscle-memory to allow it's being ignored while I concentrate on recoveries. I've worked for about 3 years on my right hand, now I'm practicing using both at once. (It's still a struggle, but easier than dog-staking!)

The correct grip is a personal matter, . . .
I balance both handles on my outstretched index finger, then switch my thumb position from left to right grip as necessary for input controls.
Insure you don't get the bottoms of the handles nested into the flying lines! Some fliers use their pinky finger in-between the grips to prevent entanglements.

Here is some pics of me holding the handles...... I find the way I hold the handles with one hand gives me the mobility to move the handles more for steering... ive seen other technics like at the top of the handles crossing them then putting in one hand... but I find it really hinders the quick steering I need for those quick adjustments....I also find that flying with the b-series set up .. having the top lines right out there really helps.. there is no slack in the bottom lines and that gives me direct steering....

I think the best why to start is working on each hand ... does not really matter which hand... trust me your going to get tired after a time... so switch the hands up ... through-out the day... I suggest trying this when the wind is consistent enough that you can keep the rev in a upright hover without to much body movement... I know like myself when I started only could fly both kites for 30 seconds at a time.. it just took time.. the times between landing the kites and stopping to put the handles down and watch your hands shake.. LOL...

This is a lot of fun to do... and gives you a good reason to buy two revs heehee

Damn thats cool.
I tried again today. Seems I suck as bad on one hand as the other :w00t:
I did get it up, make a couple of turns then land and trade hands. Hand cramps suck. Either hand seemed to work just as well. But other than the hand cramps after about 15 second my handles keep twisting in my hands. Good thing inverted hovers are really easy one handed. Saved my hiney more than once.

I would love to see the two flying MRP. That would be awsome.
After seeing the first video that came out and watching everyone I can find I've given it a try.
Never have I dreamed of having Popeye forearms.

I'd like to see the iQuad team flying MRevs.

AWESOME flying.

Was wondering tho if that was perhaps a bottle of PATRON in the background of one of the hand position pictures?????

I imagine that kind of liquid refreshment might do a flyer well!
