Please Keep a Look Out!!
Wednesday Night my kites were stolen out of my truck! :confused!:

3 Kites......
1 Lime B-Series Standard (small repair in the black section in the upper left and the bridel is fray'd)
1 Lime B-Series Vented
1 Pink & Teal Rev I (I think not quite sure cause it was new to me and I have not gotten a chance to fly it yet)

They were all in a long standard kite bag, that is purple with 2 hot pink zipper pockets.

I know my chances are slim, but all the extra eyes will surely help!!

Thank you for all your help in advance...

Sorry to hear about this!

It appears you are indicating you are not sure about the REV I colors and it seems as though it might be second hand. How about checking where you got it and seeing if they have a photo.
Spotting the REV I might be a bit easier then the lime JB 1.5's.
Do you have a picture of the kite bag? It might be easy to spot.

Hey John,
I'd have to agree with ya on spotting the Lime B's......such a good color!
I had to dig around but I finally was able to find the paperwork that I got with the kite...
It is a Rev I!!....I really wasn't sure if it was a Rev I or II....but I knew it was pink & teal! (place new B sign here) ;)
I got both the Rev I & the kite bag on ebay, a few months ago..... and just my luck no pics either.....

I appreciate everyones support.... I know I've got the best people I could have "on the case"!

Thank You Rev Family! :wub:

I should think it was more 'EXP' in its panel layout John if it were a new I. Rather like this. But no mylar (?)

This colour scheme is a stock item I am afraid. :(

Hi,
I'm so sorry about your kites!! If you need anything you let me know.
Jay has my 120's feel free to use them anytime!!

I know Jay, Bob and Cheryl will make sure you have REVs and 120's
to fly on the beach, until you get yours back or new ones.
They have a few extra's and don't mind sharing :blue-love: .

If you need anything let us know.

Big Hug!!!!!

Ohhhhh that's horrible, Star! I hope you recover them. I'll keep an eye out, but it sounds like positive vibes are more needed right now!

I hope you find your Rev's, and the scoundrel better hope the cops get them first. The penalty for stealing rev's is an SLE thrashing by antman. Not pretty.

Does anyone have a photo of a REV 1 with the same color layout as the one that was stolen from KYT ADIK?
That would be a REV I classic with teal tips and pink in the middle which is the opposite of the picture of this picture at this URL:
