It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

do you want some more pictures of this stack?
here it is:
18 rev 1.5; pilot: matze stabkill klimke

we also tried it with 20 kites. but the wind was not
what you for 20 kites. but we wil try on.
our aim are 30 kites, because we saw a picture with
27 kites in one stack.

I am -reasonably- sure that the current record for stacked revs would be 32, done by Sam Ritter and Lee Sedgewick. However, they are EXTRA MANLY, they used Rev 1s for the stacks :D

(i should mention that the pictures above are fantastic, nice work!)

There's a thin line between Manly and Maniac ... there's also a reason maniac is a word and womaniac isn't!

Besides, he was probably too embarrassed to admit that he forgot to pack his long pants for the trip!

Hi Monkey, I would never call Sam anything without putting a BIG smiley so he knew I was only kidding !!!  He could crush me with one hand !!




And as for Lee, not sure I've met him... Think I did.  But he must have some kind of weird Yoda like Rev powers   :kid_smartass: the Man's a True Rev Legend !
