Anyone know of any video's showing the revolution flying that also shows the hands of the pilot? I think this would helpful to see both what the kite is doing and the pilot.

Thanks in advance.

Are you after Indi or Team, there is some of iQuad - Ilook adn edit if I find it before anyone else.

Not sure about Indi, seem to think Guido did some in Italy a while back or Polo.


Anything you are after? We are flying this weekend and will have two video cameras, if you want something special ask and we'll see what we can do.

Here's one from Paolo Ceresa that I've always found very helpful...

Ah! I see that team kit requirements have stepped up another notch.

I do remember a couple of special events we attended where there were probably at least 10 TV cameras poised to do their worst...

So let me think, where are the appropriate hand positions for a lateral pass with the Blast with Race LE in a light breeze, similarly the Rev1 or better still the Zen with its new bridle.

Seeing it is one thing, understanding hand positions may require a little explanation in the context of practical experience <grins>

Watching this again I can clearly see the palm down 'pull back' that I have referred to elsewhere. I am very conscious of it being 'just part of the repertoire' of moves available to the flier!

We put this one together a couple of years ago - not really good enough for 'hands' though...

Noting replaces standing next to a few good friends and having a laugh and flying

looking forward to Portsmouth, I must do more outside the arena !!!!

For my skill level I was looking at some more of the simple movements. A few examples:
Kite gaining altitude while spinning
bicycle
snap turns
Diagonal flight

Maybe those aren't simple. I know a lot of these will come with skill but some of these moves I don't understand what would even be required to do the move.

WOW!!! I think I need a slow motion replay, amazing how fast his hands are moving to perform what seems like a simple maneuver.

Just remember, even the best of pilots started out right where you are now (some even further back). :D

(now where is that thread where Simon refers to just flying alongside friends to learn new stuff... no instruction, just imitation? It works like magic, I can assure you! The trouble is that the old fliers think that they know it all.. 'tee hee' just look out for the newbies.... they will learn very quickly what some of us have taken years and years to achieve.)

Ah yes, here it is...

So just to re-iterate, all you newbies have a very significant advantage and should be 'up-to-speed' in no time at all. Over the last year I have seen some fliers take advantage of observing and emulating at close quarters. No 'instructions' involved!

I feel confident that we will get the 100 ahead of the time scale that I had suggested at a skill level that I can only guess at! <grins> (not sure that I will be one of them...)

Watch that space....

Best wishes

Felix
