Your pics are proving to be the true mystery pics! ; )

Here's an idea. E-mail the pic to the kite Loft and ask them to print the pic and place it on their counter or wall, with a sign next to it that says "Is this you?" Whoever the person is, is bound to speak up if they frequent the store a lot. Have the store e-mail you back when/if they find the mystery Rev flyer. : )

Hey, remember you're in the States - won't you get sued for impinging on someone's privacy, compromising their human rights, infringing photo publishing and copyright law, any number of wireless and telegraphy laws, talking about someone without their express permission in writing (remember, you've commented on his stature - bet that's an offence on a person's 'perceived body image' (or something...I might have made that one up though.... LOL) and lastly: viewing a cam pointing the wrong way when there's NOT an 'R' in the month - a VERY serious one that.

Just a thought..... :kid_devlish:

I was reading this thinking "Wait I don't remember responding to that" then I realized it's probably a good thing you and I are separated by thousands of miles of ocean, One can only imagine the havoc that would occur which leads me to thinking if I do go to the UK next year to visit an old friend, I see some flying and Pub crawling after a short boat ride to Scotland lol. :kid_devlish:

Ok then, we sweeten the offer by offering a free set of quad handles to the person that proves that they are the mystery person in the photo, and then they wouldn't even care if we snapped a shot of them flying their rev in their birthday suit! ; )

Speaking of Birthday suit flying, has any one here ever done it? Years ago on a small island (Suavy Island), in the middle of the Columbia River, near Portland, Oregon, there was a nudist beach that used to organise a clothing optional kite fly each year. Gomberg's have flown at the event, and so has David Brittain. LOL

I can't help but think this person HAD to know they were on the cam (and thus shouldn't be upset). Maybe I should just email the pics to the Kite Loft folks and see if they have an idea who it is. They might know. :)

I also think it looks like they know where the Cam is. They couldnt have placed themselves better for it.

I don't know if this qualifies as a mystery photo or not, but I just caught this unknown flyer on a webcam a few minutes ago! Hee!

For the record, this would be mystery photo No. 36.
It is still open! Who is the mystery REV flier?

The train is from at least 10 years before the "masterpiece" time.
Look a bit more closely. There is something particular to this train, which might have been a first.

Could it have something to do with the 4 top lines connecting the revs? (I'm not sure if that's on all stacks. Never flown a stack before.)

Gary's got it close enough!
It was a bit of an illusion as all REVs appear to be the same size. Below are two more pictures taken in the same sequence of photos.
This train is before the "REV 1.5" times. The second REV is a scaled down "REV I" built exclusively to fill the gap between a "REV II" and a "REV I" for my first progressive REV train.

Gary, you are up now for the next mystery photo.

I think i've said this before about that particular pattern, I WANT ONE :kid_brooding:

These weren't easy to build and to top it off, the pattern I used for design has been lost.
The material I used was Bainbridge spinnaker nylon. If I were ever to make this again, I would used either Icarex or Toray polyester spinnaker. The major problem is to get enough material of the same type, in 4 different shades.
The amount of material used and wasted was tremendous due to the pattern.
Nope, no plans to make another set.
