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!




Now we know why the pics are small! :kid_devlish:

Sometimes it is not possible to fly two REVs at once, particularly when your young daughter insists upon being held.

I see your handle hold. Cute kid too. Funny how mine seem to get what they want most of the time while I don't. :kid_devlish:
Back to your hand hold. I thought about crossing the tops like that. But you have in the picture 3 fingers on the right handle. So how are you steering? Push or pull with only the right handle?

I'm currently working on Steves hold and it works. But occasionally for some reason the bottoms of the handles tangle. Well, my foamys on the handles have broken free and spin and or slide on the handles. Thats probably the problem. Might slide the foamies down the handle and try with just the metal of the handle. I've got small enough hands that it's hard to make movements with the ring and pinky fingers.

You will have to ask Mark, that is him holding his daughter Samantha and flying the REV.

I Hold One Handle with my Pinky and Fly the Kites wth my Other Fingers...
I suggest, as Steve did, Practice with one hand to Build the hand Strengh in the Individual hands...
Then Move to flying both Kites at once.. Dont Give up... Anyone can do this....

Most of the time when we fly we have 5-6 REV flyers. The beads makes finding your handles so easy!!

After seeing this I bet more people will be doing it! ;)

I will admit I can barely fly one rev but what if you made a static 4 line handle in the shape of a plus sign. You would only have inches of movement but that should be enough in this way you could control the line lengths without having to exert the strength of holding two handles. You could event mount a handle the middle pull back for up down for down twist left or right etc. Maybe someone should look into this for amputees that want to fly quad lines.
