Yes another Kite Party has come and went and it was just unreal the fun that was had by all, and a very big thank you to Dave at Kite Connection who was the host of this event. For you that don't know him Mr. Dave Shenkman and his store Kite Connection well they are a class act for sure and I personally wanted to thank Dave and his team for all they do for the kitting world. Also a big thank you to all the fliers that flew with us and a big thanks to iQuad for there wonderful demos, and if one flier stuck out in my mind thats Mike Cory and how he played the crowd on the pier, good show Mike, I know I'm missing lots of you but I really do have to work sometimes........... :rolleyes: Ben

Easily the most expensve stack I've ever flown. :P

"wow, i hope I don't crash this..."


Thanks Monkey, you didn't crash them at all. In fact it was quite an honor to have a bunch of you from come on over and put them in the air. I do have to say that I was very impressed when John axel'd the ladies......twice. I think that is the first time a stack of rev's have ever been axeled....could be wrong tho.

KP5 was only the second time that stack was put up in the air. The first time is when I put the stack together and the winds were pretty crappy so it only saw about 15 minutes of air time total. John Chilese was able to take a couple pictures of it for me as well as a few others which I was very grateful for. I get flying and forget to pull out the camera.

My next stack I am going to put togeher (when I get some time) will be my two Eyes! Maybe I will get around to it by KP6 - right now one half of the stack is looking very awesome hanging on the wall of our shop. :)

It was a total pleasure finally meeting up in person with all of you from the different forums. I can't wait to hook up with all of you again at the next festival!

Until then....

I do have to say that I was very impressed when John axel'd the ladies......twice. I think that is the first time a stack of rev's have ever been axeled....could be wrong tho.

I was doing axels with a progressive train(probably easier) back in 1996. I don't recall ever doing so with two or more the same size.

KP5 was only the second time that stack was put up in the air. The first time is when I put the stack together and the winds were pretty crappy so it only saw about 15 minutes of air time total. John Chilese was able to take a couple pictures of it for me as well as a few others which I was very grateful for. I get flying and forget to pull out the camera.

I have lots of pictures, though not that good, of both axels by John B, plus some other nice ones. In total I have 42 pictures of the ladies, mostly in flight.

My next stack I am going to put togeher (when I get some time) will be my two Eyes! Maybe I will get around to it by KP6 - right now one half of the stack is looking very awesome hanging on the wall of our shop. :)

Make up a bunch of pigtails(7 per Rev), that you can quickly attach on site. Then keep a few sets of train lines handy with the pigtails. You should be able to make up a train real quick anytime you want and have enough Rev at hand.

It was a total pleasure finally meeting up in person with all of you from the different forums. I can't wait to hook up with all of you again at the next festival!

It was great meeting up with you.

Until then....

John is SUCH a showoff, im surprised he didn't try to flic flac it too. LOL We should have taken mine and Johns and tagged them onto that stack too for a HUGELY expensive stack :D

Also debuted at Kiteparty, my one of one Monkey custom, sewn by the wonderful mouse in this thread, Amy Doran and finished by Revolution. It was my christmas present from Amy and voila, Sunday was its first day out and in my hands. It flies SUPERBLY and that spiral tail looks awesome when you spin the kite on its tail side. She knows how much I adore this kite, it'll be my main demo kite now.
