I just added in a new maneuver titled "Fly in to Turning Gears".
URL is http://gyraphicdesig...rningGears.html

It is not perfect thus needs a bit of work on the timing.
In fact one REV does whack another REV.

If you notice, the lines of each column stay separate of the lines of any other column.
Within a column the lines of that column will wrap up to on full turn, but then unwrap on the next part.

Enjoy, John

Now that looks like a lot of fun to try. Or should I say carnage? :)

[Thanks for the ongoing work with animations - I'm sure we'll see most committed to video sooner or later!]

Looks like a nice one to try. Now, just got to get 16 rev flyers at Dunstable on a Sunday.....Posted Image
People are like Slinkys. Basically useless but fun to watch falling down stairs.

John,

Great move! I will not, of course, suggest, two sets of sprockets in parallel... It's just too scary <grins>

A two column version, which shows the real simplicity is now available at:
http://gyraphicdesig...Gears-2col.html

This can easily be flown as 1, 2, 3, 4 or even more columns. The more columns, the wilder it looks.

It's very interesting maneuver. I would like to try it when I have opportunity...

Last weekend in Sunderland we set a small 9 person grid in light wind traversing with upward 180's called by the top kites at the front of the direction of travel.

Other calls were interjected at the centre of the window by others and it all worked very well in an unrehearsed manner. The final arena presentation involved this format as well with 'musical' prompts to add to the scheme of things...

From a suggestion from Felix, I have added in a few more elements at: http://www.johnnmitc...animate/CA.html
These are the CA to FC, FC to FA, CA to FD and FD to CA

As always, these elements can be connected with other elements in order to create complete maneuvers.

Here is a very rough sketch of what we might be calling the Dutch Windmill as flown, approximately, at Portsmouth on Monday 27th August 2012.

If anyone remembers differently please let us know.

Thanks

Are there any seriously good flying sites between Skegness and Grimsby?

Thanks

Felix

EDIT This may, of course, not be the best place to ask <grins>

I'm told that the beach there was not big enough but that there was a place further north. However that coast looks a bit remote so we are looking at the Wakefield area for a 'super 16' boot camp type of thing. It would be good if *'confident' fliers could let 'us' know if they would be available for such a venture in late October.

Thanks

Felix

EDIT *'confident' as in comfortable with the prospect of flying in the 'Dutch Windmill' <grins> Felix

Sorry guys, the beach I was thinking of is not Skeg, apparently itís a little way south of Skeg but I will make some enquiries when I get the chance.

Hi, I've just had a very positive response from a site near Wakefield.

Please pencil in the first two weekends in November.

Thanks

Felix
