Another one of my favorite kites to fly, especially to slower music.

I prefer my rare Red-White-Blue REV 1 Sedgewick. It has velcro sewed on in 6 places for 2 each red, white and blue tails, each being 15 meter long.

Sounds like a nice looking kite, although I must admit, I'm not a big fan of tails on Revs. ;)

The big thing is, the public loves tails and it flies surprisingly easy, even in light winds.

The idea is derived from my rainbow Revs going back over 10 years ago. In 1994 I won both the German and Swiss National competitions with it and place 3rd at the EuroCup.

One or two tails I will agree do not look very good on Revs, but six is very attractive. These tails are 2.5cm(1 inch) wide strips of Icarex polyester which must be cut hot.

Yep! the public do like tails.
I like to fly tails on my duals.
I am going to put lights on my REVS this summer though, and do some night flying. (I found some nice small very lightweight & very bright LED lights that use a watch battery for only a $ at the dollar store. 2 is enough to illuminate most of the kite sail.) I'm also going to experiment with some glo sticks and lightweight LED running light rods, also from the $ store.
