The sticks go on the back side of all Revs. That is, the side away from you while you are flying the kite.

It will fly that way, but not very well.
Put them on the backside, the opposite side of the sail from you when you are flying the REV.
Then it will fly properly.

I 've tried it on both sides because I was bored, but in good winds, the kite will fly okay with the spars facing you. But it alwayse flies better when they are on the back.
