Amazing to see the hand action combined with the kites.
Thanks for doing it.

I suggested on Youtube that you investigate whether GoPro is still requesting submissions for innovative uses of their cameras. I believe that at one time they were giving prizes (like whole camera rigs) for best videos. Maybe they still are doing this.
I still haven't figured how you get sideways motion. I can't see the difference in the upper lines that (I think) is needed for sideways motion. I seem to need (or at least use) several inches difference in handle position. The point is moot for me: I don't have two identical Revs, or even two sets of identical handles, so I won't be flying two at a time anytime soon.

I especially liked the multiple landing styles. Flying 2 kites at once looks hard, but landing 2 kites, multiple times, as smooth as you did, is amazing!
I think the GoPro works better mounted to the chest rather than the helmet for good kite video

I am sure most folks dont even know how hard it is to fly One haded, I can just about manage a hover for all of about a micro second. Let alone a Rev in each had.
You WOW me Steve, neat video. Thanks for posting it.

I'm going to put away the Revs and take up bowling now.
Maybe not. (Can only get better. Can't get any worse!)

Great music, great video, great editing, the flying could use some work though. <grin>
