I am new to this forum but I have been flying Revs since I was about 15, I just purchased a new Rev 1.5 SLE and I flew it for about 3 hours today and I ripped the sail :( . It was caused by the rubbing of the are where the quad sticks (fixed it for you) are mounted, I repaired the tear and on both sides I put tape to slow down the rubbing, any other suggestions to fix the problems?

I feel you pain man! I recently got a sail rip too. Mine however, was too bad to fix, so I have to get a new sail. Sooooooooo...... I really don't know how to fix a sail. I've never had to. Sorry I can't help.

Alwayse remember: Things can get worse, so be happy with what you've got!

By sissy sticks, you mean quad sticks?

I never knew that they where called quad sticks, I always heard the term sissy sticks, for now on I will refer to them as that cause it sound a whole lot better.

LOL

I'd imagine Paul LaMasters will have something to offer on this subject when he gets back to the computer, he flies on them almost exclusively.

As does the 5 time European Champion and maybe the best Quad flier in the World Guido Maiocchi from Italy.

You are so right! I have asked him to join in, but he still has not.
He runs the family business, has two young kids and a wife and a few more time consuming things. Not much time for us there. Maybe you should email him and ask him to join in as No 1. USA vs. No.1 Europe.

Well I decided the best way to fix my problem. I am just going to man up and start flying the Revs without quad sticks, I am at the point where I really dont need them anymore. John I finally got to fly your B-series kite today and I must say that I love the design. It was so much easier to keep my hovers stable and overall it just seems to have more accurate movements. I think they are well worth the price and I myself am going to purchase one next month because I just dont feel my rev collection is really complete with out it. Louis Tiberio (Sunset Flyers)

I saw Paul LaMasters fly this weekend on quad sticks. Awesome!

Not sure if I want to mod a rev yet, still thinking about it.

You ever try running a family business where you have to support your parents, sister and your own family?

To remain on top in competitions also requires extensive training on almost a daily basis. I know, I've been there. If you relax once your on top, you'll fall flat on your nose.

He also supports excellently his fellow fliers in his own country.

There also might be a slight language barrier. He speaks and understands English very well. However writing may not come that easy for him. I know it could be possible because I also deal in several languages.
