If by chance, you just happened to leave your Revolution kite, out in front of the "Kitty Hawk Kites" store, in Nags Head, NC, right across the highway from Jockey's Ridge, please contact me. I can put you on the trail, back to your kite. I'm sure that whoever left this Rev, wants it back, but you'll have to be able to describe it, perfectly, before I'll give you the information. If you can come up with the details, PM me, and I will put you in contact with the person, that can get your Rev, back in your hands...............

You'll need to know the following:

1. When and where was it left ?
2. What is the model of your kite (B-series, Supersonic, Rev I, Zen, etc) ?
3. What is the Color of the kite ?
4. Describe, "How you wound up your lines" ?
5. What kind of handles did you have with the kite ?
6. What color was the bag (sleeve) ?
7. What kind of bag was it packed in (straight sleeve, sleeve with handle, sleeve with pockets, drawstring bag, etc) ?

I hate to be so rigid about this, but I want to make sure that the kite gets back to it's proper owner, and not someone just claiming that it was theirs. Heck, I could have done that..........All it will cost you is the postage, to mail your Rev home, and it's yours again.

And BTW, I don't have your REV...................

Let me know...............

Surely, someone out there remembers leaving their Rev behind. Maybe some of you have a flying buddy, that has mentioned accidentally leaving their Rev at the coast.
Somebody has just got to claim this Rev...................Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

To bad this Rev flier isn't a member of this forum. Another reason to be a member and check in once in a while.

OK, done & done............I've also posted the info on the LOST REV, on the GWTW forum, plus I sent the information to the Region 4, AKA Director. Surely someone has got to be missing a REV .............. If anyone else knows of another outlet, please feel free to post my original message. Just make sure that it's clear, that the owner will have to contact me via the Revolution forum, or the Kitelife forum, or through the PM (personal message) outlet, on either of these two forums. They are the only two forums, that I monitor......

thanksPosted Image


Ok folks, help me find the owner of this lost Rev.............

May I presume you asked at the "Kitty Hawk Kites" store?
Did they by chance know of someone who purchased the same color scheme?

Think that we need to accept that not ALL Rev fliers look at Forums. (should make it Law I recon :kid_devlish: )

However if I had lost one I would want it back.

Hope your quest works. good luck RR.

Yep, that is becoming quite clear, but I'm just trying to keep the topic active, for a while, anyway, just to give the owner a fighting chance, of stumbling across it.........but you are right, everyone doesn't check the forums....................might be a good reason to, however. I think if I had left one of my revs, somewhere, I'd be looking everywhere, and where better, than the Rev forum..........................

Maybe whoever it is has so many thay dont need this one?

Or they tried to fly it with the rods on the back and were so dissapointed they just chucked it?

Too many kites, and they just haven't missed it. Maybe !
As for not flying due to incorrect assembly, I don't think so.
I opened it up, and it was evident, by the way it was folded, and by the way the lines were put away, it wasn't just chucked...........
I just think it is someone, that doesn't frequent forums, or the computer.
Based on where it was left, I'm sure they figure that their Rev is long gone, and have just not bothered, to follow up.
If only they knew, how hard I have tried..................

I think it may be time to call it a day on this one. Nobody can say you havenít tried. Thereís no reason it should, but if your conscience is still bothering you. You cold take a tip from The Hampshire Hoverers and use it to start a loan kit, a sort of try before you buy kit, I think theirs started with one kite but has grown by donation (build it and they will come) to two quite comprehensive kits that they lend out to people who express an interest but are reluctant to make the initial outlay for fear it will only be a five minute wonder.

Sceptical? Yes, so was I but I believe I is running quite successfully, contact either Sailor99 or Jonesey for more details or a better explanation of how it works.

Yes Bob, I'm afraid you are correct. But don't worry about the kite. It's destiny, barring the rightful owner showing up, is to become a trainer kite. It won't go to waste, believe me, but I wanted to give the rightful owner every possible chance to see the posting. I'll probably keep bumping it up, till the end of the month, and if at that time, no one has claimed it, the kite will pass on into it's new life, as a trainer..............and maybe it will help some kid learn about this hobby, that we all love, so much........................(you never know, their could be another JB out there, somewhere, just waiting for a chance).
