That is some amazing flying! how long had you been flying quads at the time? Your skills do not look like a new flier! Thanks for sharing!

Hiya there...glad you enjoined the video. At that point I had been flying just under 3 mths. My 1st flight was Sept 5 and the dog video was recorded Nov 30. I'm having severe withdrawals right now because it's been almost 2 weeks since I've flown. I work on the ocean and just got back from am 11 day trip a few hours ago. Wind is calm ATM. I want to go out and fly but without wind (normally I would flight wind or not) ...I just haven't got the energy :( 10 days in a row of working 20 hours on and 6 hours off has a way of kicking your you know what. So....ima take a much needed nap and Then...A MUCH NEEDED FLIGHT! ;) Thank you for your comment. I love flying and as a rule I do so every day that I'm on land.

I am majorly Jealous. I have not been in the air since Dec 5th and that day I only got about 4 passes with my 8m power kite as I spent the time whatching and helping my 9yr old fly my 2m for the 1st time. Gotta hook em young! Winds here have been just poor and I have no good low wind rig. Plus the few low wind days have been raining too, or like lastnight blowing 20mph and rianing 2"/hr!!

This is not Rev, but figured you guys might enjoy it, video from that last flying day.

That's awesome bud...I love it. Its a very good thing your doing by teaching him while he's still young. And he's pretty good. I'm impressed. I always say..." there's a Lot Worse things you could be doing than flying a kite" but you'd be hard pressed to find more Wholesome fun. :)

I can't wait to fly my B. I got it last week and have yet to fly it. Too much rain, plus been cold. Fingers crossed looks like no precip this weekend! If not I might just suit up in my ski gear and put one of the power kites up anyway!

I bet ull like the B series. The control is amazing. I did a little filming today under a low bridge ( similar to what you have in a parking garage) only I have water too. :) Haven't moved it to the computer yet so I haven't even seen how it turned out. Also...yesterday I filmed a little stage (w/ceiling) flying and under low tree cover flying. Got sum decent pictures in trees and other odd places on my FB page if ya want to check em out.
