I'm a newbie to Rev's. I can fly them and do most of the moves, but my issue seems to be that my shockwave is just dying on me in the lighter winds (~8mph). I'll be sweeping it across the window and it will begin to coast under its own power, leaving me out of control just waiting for the wind to recatch it and let me take over again. Is this something I can correct in my hands? Or should I just wait on mother nature?

Moved responses to the appropriate thread in "Flying Techniques".


No harm done, just cleaning house.

Thanks. ;)
