I was in Mackay many year ago on a submarine. Is that somewhere near you?

finally got some pics up...

pic 1 My B series being flown by Col's wife Veronica.
pic 2 It's hard to fly with precision, balancing a sonic on your head! :-)
pic 3 Col's "raspberry" sonic and My B-series back to back

It's a great site at low tide we do feel compelled to keep a bit of an eye out for large pointy toothed handbags though

Stunning location, I have turned an unfetching shade of green :kid_cussing:

That's got to be one of the best views from a flying site. Can anyone else compete?

Andy ..

I'm off down to Sydney for a month in a few weeks and have been trying to find local flyers to hook up with ... I'm currently waiting for a response from a sydney based club who have a few sites listed on their website .... I will let you know how I get on!

Hey Mike,

There are a number of Rev flyers all over Aust. Small pockets of flyers everywhere. There are a few people that I know that fly Revs in FNQ some where (they auctally did some night flying with lights on the kites and some profesional camera, some awsome photo's). Most of the Aussie flyers are also big buggiers etc as well. We do have a forums that they mainly visit.

Andy and Jonesy,

There are some guys in Sydney that fly revs. I know of at least one person in the Hunter Valley that has a 2.4 Blast.


There is also a good number of flyers in Melbourne but again the revs come out when the wind is light and the buggying is a little boring. I know of 2 people in Hobart that fly revs (badly) and there are a couple that have revs in South Aust but dont know where they fly.

If you can't find any, then you have to start training a few. That is what happened to me in 1990.

Hey Dave,

Not really sure if there are many down your way. If you keep an eye out in the EK forums, you will see that here are oftan trips that the buggiers make from ACT and a lot of the sydney guys head to 7 mile beach. I think a couple of thoes guys fly the revs as well but they will be wanting good wind so they can go fast. Have not looked at where Narellan is until today, wow you are a long way inland.

The other option you can try is the AKS. Looks like they have regular fly days at Tania Park, Rooty Hill, Shoalhaven and Orange. Dont know what the closer ones are to you as I have not really looked that much. If they have any members that are flying rev's they should be able to let you know and where they are.

The final option is something that I have been trying to do. Talk your mates into learning to fly kites. :D

Well after a long hiatus from the forum and largely from kite flying :(
I'm back thought I'd float out idea and see if there are any more Aussie rev'ers joining the fold

Hi, I'm in Esperance WA.

I've been flying for about 4 years and have never flown with another rev flier.

Lots of fantastic places to fly and great winds here too.
