Hello, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.
Here's a video (with music) of what I call a Rev 1.5 Evolution stack. It's a 3-stack of a 1.5 UL (pre-SLE), an SLE, and a B-series.
The stack lines, 100# blended spectra (old dual-line set), are all 5.5 ft attached to 2" loops larks-headed through all the endcaps bungi holes.
This was my first attempt at stacking Revs. I did a bit of test flying over the field to make sure that it stayed together first before going over the water.

Rev on - David

Well done David.

I tried to play in a pond with one of my Sedgwicks. Got the lines caught on some long grasses and crashed and burned. Or more correctly crashed and drowned.

Ended up dragging the soggy muddy mess out by the lines, trying not to break anything.

Was fun while it lasted though.
