Just for the hell of it, I put together a 5 stack of full-sail B2s. This video is from the kite's second time being flown.

You're a mutant Spence. Axeling a 5 stack!? And John's 360 wasn't too bad either... Out of curiosity, why is the last kite reversed? I've not flown stacks, so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

The last kite is usually reversed to show everyone watching the branding. A bit of advertising.

Didnt notice about the last kite being reversed, just go's to show, even the best of us can make mistakes. Bet if you look close the rods will be on the wrong side too. :P

However if JB or Spence reply I bet they will come up with some sort of lame excuse about being able to read the Rev LoGo from both ends. :)

You got it... The back sail is flipped so the logo is viewable from the back, spars still on the downwind side. :P

By and by, one of those axels was mine, thank you very much. Posted Image

Yeah, well it's pretty tough to tell who's doing the axeling when you're not in the picture! :P And besides, we all know you're a mutant JB, that was never a question. Nice work gents, can't wait to see more!

Thanks Watty, but I can't do an axel with one kite let alone five! Guess I know what I'm working on between now and then...

Is the 5 stack going to WSIKF? And if so, is it going to be used as a secret weapon in an iQuad routine?

That stack will be at WSIKF, but no team use since we just have the one. :)
