Choccy is looking for a smaller rev i think.;)

How did ya know I was looking for one ? ;)

I am just catching up on this thread (must have missed this when I was on vacation)....

looks like you all had a lot of fun making and trying this funsized cute mini-rev out. :)
It must be soooo fast!

so you think I could use these 9 and 11 inch or 14 and 24 inch mini revs
with my 34.5 inch and 36 inch mini revs and make a mini-progressive stack ? :lol:

It's not the Size of your rev, but how well you fly it.

Had it stuck in my head, and just had to say it....LOL

You guys have been busy, but I really don't want your creations ;)

Perhaps you could be my "fun-geneering" experts (trying out new sizes and designs of funsized revs) ? :lol:

Looks like you could team up with Robert too, who's also made a mini rev :)

Thanks deebs1596 for putting a picture up of my brother revolution lol

Its a very fun indoor kite, floats alot and it is very fun...We have it on 6 foot lines right now. My brother also made a 4 foot set of lines for this micro revolution and those lines are awsome, but i love the 6 foot line more...we have homemade quad handles for it. We haven't flowned it yet in any winds above 5 mph yet, but were waiting for a day where it is close to that (we haven't had any winds up here in a few days) to try it out in the wind.....deebs likes my brothers kite alot and i hope he would reply to this post and tell everyone how it flies.....btw my brother has a 70 inch version he is making for indoor flying and also a revolution where he can fly it in our living room..Also the 70 inch will be close to the weight of the 48 inch revolution...I am also making one with my brother so we will have 2 70 inch revolution...thats all i gotta say about the new quad kites...pics when it is finished....

@QQ (not what you got but how you use it ?) :blue_blush:


Hi there,

Now going for a stack of 3 - blue white & red. Got the hardware done, waiting for the sails.

One is fun - what are 3, or depending on how much its costs 5 (8) :kid_devlish:

I'm curious to see how the 3 stack flies, and how it looks. Keep us posted.

Out of curiousity what are you framing them on?

At the moment I'm waiting for the guy with the seewing machine to do the sails (I hope in the next few days), I've got the spars done - 6mm and 4mm graphite. The end caps are the bigger problem, but I've got plastic tubing for the wing tips, and brass tube pluged with dowel for the rods.

The "Plastic bag" flies beautifully, and once I've got the right size handles (probably just a bit wider than my hand) she should be almost as responsive as the 1.5. At the moment I trying a piece of broomstick with appropriate spaced holes.

The result I'm hoping for is slightly slower and less pull than a 1.5.

The next stage is to take the plastic and try different shapes for the sail - more or less curve etc. - also variations in holes for venting. I want a kite that is happy at 40 kph and up Posted Image

Once I got the stack I'll post the results - and hopefullu some pix.

Thanks

Rob
