New Indoor Rev vs. Older Indoor Rev
Posted 28 December 2008 - 12:22 PM
Ok , here is my question. After taking Connor's new indoor rev (which is gorgeous Benny!) along with Connor of course, I noticed a big difference between his new version, and my older one.
The new one seems to be majorly arched across the leading edge where my older one is not.
The leaders seem longer though I have yet to confirm it.
The sail is a lot tighter then my older one that has a lot of play to it. ( I have tightened it up as much as possible already).
Reverse is wayyyyyyyyy better on the new rev.. like so much more controllable.. and easier to go into..
Ok, I want to fly my rev, with the same results.. help!!! Otherwise I am going to be borrowing my son's kite lol.

New ones are indeed tighter, which I also prefer.
Also, the new rods being stiffer, tend to keep it all a bit tighter as well.

My new model is definately easier to fly than my husband's older one.
It definately floats easier.
It is stiffer.
It takes less effort/power to make it do the same things.
Also a bonus....it is easier to set up.
