Just added a custom midvent ProB to my bag! I am stoked beyond words about the killer job Bazz did in making my design a reality, plus a Million Thanks to Ben & Lolly for giving my projects the green light. I have no doubt this Rev will get the most airtime on my home turf! :wub:


Whoa, that's different. ;)

Here is my latest "one off, home made, quad kite" and i do have permission from all concerned, to show it ;)
It is Cheif Red Cloud on a hunting party, trying to find buffalo to feed his hungry people.
It's a long story, but i call this kite NO BUFFALO.

Hi Derek-
I knew you were talanted, but WOW....the contrast and shading is excellent! That's got to look fantastic with the sun brightening it, with a deep blue background.

Beautiful job! Stunning kite! Congrats!

Question: How do these differ, in handling, from Revs?

Curious!

Derek, no harm done, but that page has direct links to knock off plans... Just a conflict of interest, had to remove the URL, sorry!

Thank's for your comment, It is very pleasing. :blushing:
I can not compare, I've never piloted a "real rev".
But I would like very much trying a B. serie !

So I can compare my quad kites between them :
The UL is more nervous and more difficult in reverse.
The VTD is less nervous and more stable in reverse.
The HVTD is between the two. It is a bit like my "standard".

And the first version of my project was like this (in the left of the picture).
Full panels, not inline cuts.
