Well I'm sure from the title you can probably guess what has happened :) Thanks to all the great advice I gathered from the forum I plumped for a standard B-series which arrived on Friday. So I went out for a few hours after work on friday evening for my first flight. My first thought was 'blimey thats fast!' switfly followed by stacking it into the ground :wacko: However within a few minutes while I wouldnt say I was *fully* 'in control' I was at least having a blast and keeping it up in the air (and quickly learned the value of a bit of sharp braking!) :P

I was amazed just how easy it is to re-lauch etc when flying single handed - even when the kite falls flat it will often flip back over once a bit of a breeze gets underneath - this is definitely a kite that wants to be in the air!

Thanks for all the help and advice on here - its defintely a very friendly forum :lol: Hopefully I will be meeting up with Sailor and Jonesy this weekend to get properly initiated into the Rev flying community.

Neil

avant garde clue = cutting edge to a small village near Aix-en-Provence. Are you sure you got the French correct?

So you are the Michael Fish of Devon now huh!

Unfortunately Neil has mistakenly purchased a gold and Black so will no doubt be sending it back to avoid clashing with mine ;)

Looking forward to meeting up this weekend .... Be afraid the rest of you ... Jeremy and I will have got to him first... a new 'really dark side' disciple ... Wuuuhahahaha :devil:

Initially I had ordered black and gold which it turns out clashed with Jonesy, but they didnt have one in stock so my second choice was blue and black :)

Enjoy the baptism with Sailor and Jonesey, Neil. I'm sure they'll help you accelerate along the path towards Rev'dom with some wise advice.

P.S. Ignore Sailor's advice that equalising your lines is a waste of time though. He's wrong on that one ;)
