look forward to hearing your feedback ;)

And as for a design... chickens gotta be in there somewhere ? :kid_devlish:


No, No Chickens - want something either very radical or that is an extension of The Flying Squad's current image. Lets thin outside the chicken coop

However I do believe a certain "team" have already got the perfect Ballet & music for Pedro & Estaban !!!!



Go to love the music :blue-music:

How about something based around Jig saw puzzles or linking designs to spell the name etc

Actually thinking about it, how about making a whole bunch of Rev 'Letter' kites and playing mega team scrabble ...

Inverted = double word score etc ;)

join me in team dyslexia anyone?

I have to agree..these were some of the nicest people I have ever met..
When my kites were stolen.. they offered to print my graphics of my ladies on a sail for me.. I was speechless...

hugs to you both! waves.

Next time I see the Bro's I'll give them a hug on your behalf Mousie ;)

Not sure if you'd like their beardy kisses though :blushing:

Both Evolver & The Flying Squad were working on multiple kite routnes at the time, We had an 8 minute choreographed routine using 2 line & Rev's, we have some very good 2 line flyers and Rev flyers so it was a natural progression [for both teams].

Carl & James work for me better as either 2 line or 4 line routines, Carl can throw the Fury around really well:) & James' ballets with a 4 line always impress me, his technical skill in a ballet is awesome.

Amazing NEW Revolutions





[/size]


I picked up my brand new Rev in Berck this week. It is AMAZING! The colours are very good and the detail that you can see is, well, very detailed. These kites fly incredibly well and were very smooth all week at Berck. The kites do feel a little different but in a good way, they are perfectly balanced and respond instantly.

I only had a chance to fly the kite in light to medium winds but the standard flew down as low as my SUL when I put a Race frame in it. I will try it again at the weekend and try to get some more photos of the detail. I'm already planning the design of the next one though.

I can vouch for the quality of the brothers’ work I have just, taken delivery of a couple of custom orders this afternoon, not Revs, but watch this space may be later.

There’s a festival banner designed to fly from an SLE flag pole. As always thanks to Choccy for the photo.

And a Custom Rokkaku.

In both cases thanks to Stephen Hoath for his Art House work, making my design ideas work for me and congratulations to the Brothers on a excellent job.

Fly that banner at a festival and you will have someone coming over from FA calling you names! Still I'd be happy to give you a hand :) :)

Oooooooh. Those are Niiiice, Bob! I've been craving a banner lately as well. I've got the design skills to be sure, but perhaps not enough dinero yet...

Contact the brothers, I can't remember the exact price because I had a multiple order but I can say that they are very affordable.

I believe the retail price is around 30 Euro's a peice. They work really well in multiples though as you can make pillars out of 3 or 4. We also plan to use them to extend the arena area around our kites by using small sticks of 6mm. I would use broken Rev rods but I haven't broken any in years!

pm me if you want some more details or better still, email the Brothers.

There is a fellow on another thread that broke his rods and is using some cheap stuff from Wal-Mart. I am sure he could make good use of your SLE rods.

They are amazing as Stephen says.

Thanks to Stephen and Simon who lent us their new Gonzalez Revs, the time just flew by when we were having fun on these new beauties ;)

Now what were those whispers (to jump in there before my European friends say), something about a team fly,
a butterfly and a net :blushing:

Awwww wonderful Bob, loving your duckie Rok too..... ;)

You are welcome, it's nice to finally see what the hush hush was all about :lol:

BTW did you make Stephen's frog ground stake per chance ?

It's all good, the Flying Squad banners at the festival too, nice to be able to see them up close and finally talk about it!
