Four of iQuad will be attending the Niagara Falls Kite Festival, held September 27-30!

http://www.niagarakite.com/

We've heard many great things about this event and are really looking forward to it. ;)

Steve and I arrive Wednesday to do some indoor and crowd flying mid-week, then David (Monkey) and JD will be joining us on Friday to give us a full compliment of four pilots for the weekend.

As always, we can't wait to fly with other Rev-heads who might turn up at this one! <grin>

Come one, come all.

Yeah, I'm kinda bummed about not being able to go. I think that would be way to go be flyin' near the falls. I hope you have fun and be sure to try and post some pictures and/or videos of you guys flying.

Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe

Still trying to get out of work that weekend. I've got approval from my wife, now I need it from work.

Does anybody know of a DBA that lives in Maryland that is seeking employment?? Maybe if we hired them and got them up to speed really quickly....

Great news Alden, can't wait to fly with you again!

We could use some help with getting some photos and a bit of video, if you're up for it?

I'll help with photo's and vids!

I just checked out a weeks worth of weather for Niagara Falls. Looks like they generally have a nice breeze around 2:00 in the afternoon.

Looks like Thursday is going to be a wet one but Friday and Sunday are going to be breezy!

I've got some last minute preparations to do this evening and then I'll be on the road tomorrow morning.

Here's a couple of shots of John and Steve at the falls. In the second one they are thinking "If I lose my rev I'll just get another one from Ben...".

A shot of IQuad at work. In the background you can see three dual line kites doing a refueling manuever. The cool thing about this is that all three kites were being flown by Ray Bethel at the same time (one in each and and one attached to his belt loops).

Finally there was Hailey the kite killer (even John succumbed to her, she did say that Monks was too easy).
