New Rev flier in Minnesota
Posted 27 July 2010 - 12:08 PM
I've gotten out for a couple of flying sessions. Learned a lot in both. The first was moderate winds and was able to hover a little bit, mostly worked on launching and getting used to everything. My last session was very low winds, but again I learned some things. Put in the 2 wrap spars and noticed the difference. Much harder time with hovering in low winds.
I'm looking forward to spending more time and learning how to fly. So far it's great.

Welcome to the forum and the darkside.If I can give you one piece if advice......
Try and fly with other rev heads.Your learning process will happen much quicker.There are loads of festivals
over there,try and get to one or two,it will help with your flying,and you will make a ton of friends.Other than that
the immortal words with rev flying.....
practice,practice,and practice some more....
other than that,just enjoy yourself

Welcome to the Dark Side.
Sounds like you've got a "handle" on things!!
Like dazlarsen suggested: Practice, practice, practice.
... oh and did I mention... PRACTICE!!
Don't forget to have fun... which it's easy to do.
Any questions, please feel free to ask; everyone, here, is friendly and eager to help.
If you can meet up with other flyers, it will benefit you greatly! It is worth driving a few or more hours if there's a festival in a reasonable distance.
All the best.
*** Any day flying is a good day; have a great one!
**** REVS: Fly it, you'll like it!
***** L.S.P. ... It's worth the trip!

Ok, sorry for the breakdown....I'm alright now. Oh yea, WELCOME to the DARKSIDE!!!!
You will never look to the sky the same again.......What's it doing outside? I can see the trees moving...there's just enough wind. Where's my Rev? Let's GO !!!!!
Jinx is from the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. A couple of big events are coming up.... Sept 4-5, Two Rivers,WI (about 1.5 hrs north of Milwaukee), and Sept 11-12 in Milwaukee -the MOTS festival. Check the AKA website calandar page for more details. Team iQuad will be at the MOTS fest and Team 180GO! will be at both events. If it's not too far, you should try to make it to one of them. Look for the guys in the red shirts, IKE members.

Anyway I'm looking forward to learning to fly mine and have some fun. There are a few Rev fliers in the Twin Cities I know. Hope to see some at the Flying Colors Festival in Bloomington, MN in August.

Did you find other flyers? (I know this is an old thread) There's a couple of us in the north metro that have started flying Revs and would love to find others nearby to fly with.
