Hi gang,

Checking in again.

Had a few weeks with my EXP now. Love it. Been battling with gusty winds, but yesterday had some terrific steady wind around 5 - 6 mph and I really got to see what the kite (& I) could do instead of my constant over-corrections in gusty conditions!

Anyway, my flying spot is located in Park City, about 7500 feet above sea level. Just wanted to see if anyone else is flying as high as me? :rolleyes:

Kind regards,

Paul.

For gusty winds, a vented REV is the best!

My highest altitude with a REV was St. Moritz in Switzerland at 1,822 m (5,978 ft)
Now, I have flown with my REVs much higher, but that was in an airplane. The Revs stayed packed up in the overhead rack.

The highest up I have been when flying is 150feet flying whilst standing in a hot air balloon basket. 360 degree flying... it was mad!!!!!

Neat, always wanted to fly in one.
Which country? England or France?
Were you at EuroCup 1994(St. Moritz) where Michael Sehorz flew a dual line kite from a tandem paraglider?
