New on these forums and must say the information gained from here has been of some help. (Possibly not on my bank account) To cut a long story short having been kitesurfing for a number of years injury forced me to take up something a bit safer. A few weeks researching and the wallet definitly a lot lighter two Rev B series landed on my door step. A std sail and a full vent. Managed to get the std out today for the first time. The smile didnt leave my face. In an hours flying managed to rreverse launch, Dive stop, Upright Hover and reverse flight across the window. Thrilled is an understatement. Unfortunately looks as if Ill be teaching myself has have not seen a single Rev anywhere in Northern Ireland. In sure I will have a few question in this learning period and will thanks you all in advance for the help I'm sure to receive.


Happy Flying
Chris

Never seen any while I was up in the North either.

Although after saying that Fusion were over for the Downhill kite festival and also The Festival of Flight last year. They'll be at both again this year if you check their website for specific dates.

PM'd too.

Have been checking out kitelife aswell. No doubt I will have more Revs in the future. The two B series for the time being will do me. The good things about revs are they are alot easier hidden than new kitesurfing kites and a darn sight cheaper. Will be keeping my eyes out for upcoming festivals. Cheers for the welcomes.
