I just purchase my first Revolution kite, and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. I have plenty of experience with two line kites, but this will be my first with a Rev. I'm hoping for success!

First thing - If the kite comes with a DVD or video tape - WATCH IT!! :):) Most of what you learned on two lines will not work on the 4 line Rev!! :blink: Really pay attention to the tape or DVD, it teaches the basics pretty well!! John B. has a number of tutorials on Revs, you would be well served to watch as many as you can!! Most of all - PRACTICE!!! Welcome to the DARKSIDE!! :)

I spent almost two hours with my Rev 1.5 SLE in a 12 to 20 MPH wind. It was great. I had a few unplanned landings, but in only a few minutes I was doing controlled landings and launches, 360's both directions, figure eights, and flying back and forth accross the window. I did drop the kite straight out of the sky twice from top center of the window (it almost landed on my head)Posted Image . I even did a few inverted launches, and rolled the kite from an inverted landing to right side up.

I was so concerned that I was not going to be able to fly the Rev, but I think those worries are behind me now. I cant wat to get out there again with my Rev.

I am planning on going down to the Washington Monument and flying there on Sunday, and hope to see some other Rev flers there.

Lets hope for some good wind!

Rev rules! What am I going to do with all of my dual line kites?
