I hope those three are going to a good home.

Are you keeping a record of the variations and where they go?

Welcome Akulakat, brave choice for your first Rev.



Oh oh. Is there something I should know? I got this slightly used and have been having fun with it. The winds around my place are usually 15+ and it has been fun. I can't make it do alot of cool tricks like you see on videos yet, but I am learning. It doesn't pull me around like my Peter Lynn Twister 4.1.

My only question is: Is there a trick to setting up by yourself when it is windy without the kite wanting to take off on you? I find this very difficult to do. My other power kites just sit there with the brakes on pretty well behaved. I stake the lines with brakes, but it still is a feat to get it accomplished. Currently I lay about 4 baseball gloves on the trailing edge as I hook everything up.

Try to have the sail lying flat on the ground, leading edge into the wind, with a little bit of string overlap. You can always use your knee to keep it down as you're getting the strings attached. Once attached, it would be best if you learned how to do a reverse launch. Do you own or have you seen any of the Revolution instructional videos?

ps. This certainly won't be your last Rev! LOL!

Hi Dude,

Nice kite!!

2 Options, 1 Leading Edge down and stake lines like most kites it should want to fly into the ground so wont take off. Just push thumb forward on one hand and kite should roll over ready to fly.

The second is very cool, lie the kite on its front on the ground, like it would fall over in light wind if you landed it and it fell towards you.

Now put both handles in one hand, grab top lines & pull (hard) it will float into the air a couple of feet, hold the handles normally and then reverse hard, the kite will take the normal flying position.

Have fun.

So I'm guessing set it up leading edge towards the wind, lines already crossed, then reverse launch, spin around and off we go?

I have reverse launched (Not from the initial setup) when I brought it down leading edge first. It comes up nicely. What do you think is TOO MUCH wind for the Blast? Its 23 mph outside right now. I want to go fly but better judgement is saying no.

Not quite. Set up the lines as you would normally, but then flip the kite over before you walk back to the handles. You'll have to flip the kite over using your handles in order to launch it.

I'm not sure about the wind range for the Blast as I don't have one. Perhaps Antman will chime in on this thread...
