excellent idea! When shall we expect you? Next weekend is the Treasure Island kite festival...always a good turnout of Rev flyers there.
No such luck, but it is an idea I'm SERIOUSLY considering.
I can fly a rev without crashing, hover in a pretty confined space, do inverted hovers and slides, etc ... so I think I just need to spend time with someone hands on to convey all those things that can't be picked up from videos and text. I'm guessing that those little things will provide masses of 'lightbulb moments' and seriously accelerate my abilities and also unlock the ability for me to learn easier from video and text.
The exchange rate makes life a bit tough and I may be a bit limited on weight to bring all the Revs I may need, although I suspect I might be able to borrow some for learning purposes. On the bright side, I have a valid tourist visa from my 2009 trip so I wouldn't have to go through that process all over again.
Any suggestions on kite events where I'm not going to battle for transport and acommodation and won't get charged the earth for it?
