Fraser how do you like that Blast ? is it all the name said it would be :kid_smartass:

Haven't really got to grips with it yet, Jim. Wind's been rubbish since I got it, so I've been trying to make use of its light wind capabilities, but there's a lot more in the setting up than normal Revs I think - down bridles connecting top and bottom line bridle points, for example. So it'll take a while to get it flying properly I think.

Did try it the first time in 15mph or so - nearly killed me! (No really - it's an animal!) I wasn't in the mood for that kind of effort, so didn't percevere - I'll need to be rather more competent with it before I use it in stronger winds....!

Looks great in the air though too - it's BIIIG! I reckon it'd be great on properly long lines - doing huge big 60mph swoops and loops. Definitly deserted beach equipment though - if you hit someone at full speed, you would definitely injure them!

We have:

1 Rev II
2 Rev I
1 Shockwave
1 Super Sonic
1 Super Sonic vented
1 Super Blast, but I had to sell it to another quad-a-holic who is twice my size and can handle it
1 Indian Nation/Burkhardt
6 1.5's
4 Barresi's

Does my hand-lettered "Revolution" (by Joe) Mesh Rev count?
1 if this counts
Do Backtrackers count (Rev designed)
1 if this counts

:blue-music: What does the classification 'newbie' signify ?

Just curious - usually you all refer to me as a 'rookie' :blushing:

878 Revs between 71 pilots! ;)

(you're in for 20 Cath, since Joe "approved" the mesh, and Backtrackers do count)

As for the "newbie" designation, that has to do with the number of posts you've made on this forum.

Okay, just tweaked the "member ranks" a little... Again, they are based on your total posts to this forum.

Quadling 0-49
Quad Trainee 50-249
Quad Head 250-749
Quad Fanatic 750-999
Quad Veteran 1000-1499
Quad Guru 1500+

Rev Staff are now listed as such, and those who I have enough first-hand experience to vouch for as listed as "Rev Guru".

These aren't to be taken too seriously, but I though it was high time they reflected the kind of forum we have here. ;)

Ha ha! They're great John! "Quadling" - excellent. LOL

I do like anything where having a big mouth is more important than ability (well, how else will I progress in this world, eh?)! :kid_content:
