Great idea and the video comes over well.
Amazing to see the hand action combined with the kites.
Thanks for doing it.

Cheers
Stephen

That was very cool. (Nice music, too.)

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'm astonished you can vary the distance between the handles enough just pushing them with your thumb like that. Need plenty of wind I guess.

Cool vid!

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 B)

I could do that easy, IN MY DREAMS.

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.

Amateurs need not apply! Great job, Steve.:matrix:

I'm going to put away the Revs and take up bowling now. :censored:

Maybe not. (Can only get better. Can't get any worse!)

I can fly one in my off-hand with great control, adding that second one in my strong hand makes a mess though. Paul Dugard can do two at once also and he makes it look pretty darn easy too, so I've gotta' practice some more, darn it. Every time I have it "goin' on" somebody shows something else to put me back in my place (at the rear end of the bus)!
