I really like how it looks when you sort of caught your Rev under the center panel, then launched it off your hand.... Sort of looked liked it was some huge butterfly that landed on your hand for a sec before taking off. :) Smooth!

The vented Rev never fails to surprise me... I would figure you would use the Xtra Vent in crazy high winds only! Is 12-16 mph the low end of the XtraV's capabilities?

Have Rev, Will Travel

The Xtra Vent low end with a Race Frame is probably down to 8mph or so... I probably wouldn't pick it for myself in that wind (low power), but it should fly.

Still in testing mode on the stake, will have to get back to you on that. ;)

The average was a little higher while I was out there. I was watching my 4 wrap frame bend like a gymnast :blink:
