That sounds like a gentle warning.
Regarding the the 1.5JB series. My experience so far show me that the std 1.5 is more precise ( in my limited control at the moment) that the Rev 1.

So is the 1.5 JB series so, so, much better? Is it better to learn on the best rather than the standard? Most interested to have your opinion.



I would have to say that it is good to learn on the best. It took me a very short time to teach someone how to fly a rev on a b-series than a 1.5.

Saddly, I have no new kites to speak of :( .

1.5 SLE Std
1.5 SLE Vented
1.5 SUL
Rev 1
Rev 2
EXP x2
Indoor
Supersonic
Blast

That would be 10.

Okay gang, I've updated the list of owners and # of kites, found in the first post of this thread... Does someone care to count 'em all up, for a current tally?

How many people, how many kites.

Post me back some numbers! ;)

Sadly, I own only one Rev. A relic is really what it is. But the old bird will still fly with the best of them. She's been flying since 1990.

im curious how someone has enough money to own over even 10 revs, john, you own 59! wtf? :wacko:


Hi All.

Just a thought. Does anyone (at Revolution, or anyone else) have any idea just how many Revs are out there?

I'd never even SEEN one before I caught the kiting bug, but reading this forum regularly makes it obvious they're all over the planet and have been for, what, 20years?

Anyone even hazard a guess at the total?

Fraser


============================

Total count (updated 9/19/07):

719 Revs between 57 pilots, for an average of 12.61 Revs per person!

-----------

*list is updated on occasion, the last post included in totals is #203 in this thread, by kitedog
.
*total count per person should reflect kites actually in possession.

This is the other John.
Over a period of 17 years I have collected my REVs.
I acquired mine in various ways:
- some are bought.
- some are sponsored.
- some are gifts.
- some I made.
I never had enough rods for all of my REVs to be assembled at one time.

I would consider them three. They could be flown separately, even without bridles.

There's something wrong with that list there. I have 3 revs. Do min revs count? If so then I have four!

You must remember Chris that John has had 20 + years to get all those.

Well add 1 more to my already overstuffed bags, a never flown 1.5 vented in very loud blue yellow and pink color scheme courtesy of my pal Doug Cotes at a very sweet discounted price. :w00t:

Thanks Doug, :kid_smartass:

Hmmm. Actual Revolution revs?

a 1989 Rev I ("patent pending") in pink and purple, signed by a couple of Hadzickis
a 1991 Rev II in cool rainbow
an SLE from the first year they were produced
a B-series (the vented is on order and I should have it next weekend...but it doesn't count yet!)
a one-off Bazzer 1.5 that was commissioned on my behalf by my best friend

Funny, given how many revs I have and how often I fly them, how few are "real" (I usually have an SUL and a vented II in the bag, as well as an icarex 1.5, and that doesn't count the bunch of rev II sails at home, or the 3 IIs I once lost in an airport!)

As for how it's possible for someone to own more than 10 revs, well, it really isn't that hard. For instance, even 10 b-series revs won't cost nearly as much as a full-size Peter Lynn show kite!

My 11 yr old daughter has been flying for 3 years. The whole family loves Revs!
