The Flying Squad whinge card was started last year to try and encourage our team to reduce the level of complaining that goes on sometimes (nothing serious just gentle stuff like, mine lines are always twisted, the wind is too strong, I don't do rain!)

When the current holder of the Whinge Card hears another member of the team being a little less than positive they can pass the card onto that person.

The only trouble is, being English, we like to moan and so what actualy happens is that when someone gets the Whinge Card they then purge all the things that are annoying them. Doh..

This now needs to be extended to all other Rev fliers we meet and so be warned, next time you fly near us and you complain out load, you may get the Whinge Card. Lets see how far it travels. :kid_smartass:



Yep Marc and Ben both got it last week lol but it soon came back :P :P (not that they are whingers it was all in fun)

Complainers with iQuad have to fly with their handles inverted, that usually sorts 'em out real quick. :devil:

Stephen I think I should get the " whinge card" tattooed on my forehead cause as the team will tell you I can be a bit
much, but in my own defense this is how I get things done, complain then change....... :blue_wink: So all in all I am
guilty of " whinge" but use it well plus I'm crazy so that makes up for it all........ Remember Family a crazy person
has control of next years colors so be nice, be very nice...... :kid_brooding: Ben

down on the point a move that always gets the wooos and ahhhhs is a crisp 360 rollover landing..... heck even a not so crisp one gets a great response.... i agree the burst is a real dazzler for sure..... another move i see people ahhing about is... the dosey-do
... and of course the fly through is one of my favorites..... even though i'm still trying working on the speed & geometry - connect to brain thing on that one
good luck with you're routine

Funny you should say that, this arrived thursday, rather fancied waking up to the sound of the wind rustling Icarex bedroom curtains, might get me out of bed a bit quicker. :P

Hi,

Very Wimbledon don't you think ?

The French also use these colours together a fair bit.
Nice ;)

For me it has to be A Burst to a Twister.

My favorite is when I call for the kites to flank right, and then we all flank left--which is what I meant to say. I love it when a team reads my mind!

Hello Jay,
Thank you, it is a pleasure to share.

Stephen> I am so glad I have not missed your new routine.
I don't mind how long it takes you to figure it all out, just as long as I get to see it eventually :);)
It is so easy to miss things...

Please keep us posted later in the year.
Cheers

my fav would be "le croisee voltaire" (sound beter in french).
Work only with an even team. start as acrossing, then the middle kite stop at the crossing, then the 2 next above and below and so on , wich bring you to a pinwheel 180. Can be seen in the last move of that routine

Voila
Quad line is totaly useless,therefore completly indispensable.

Just had a thought, have any teams ever tried to make the following pattern:

Imagine a team of 6

3 x 2 in kisses arranged in a pinwheel or Mercedes style shape;

then if very brave rotating the 3 kisses around the central point by one 'turn' (not all the way around), then back by one turn again.
I realise this is a fairly hard move anyway.. but just thought it would look 'pretty' in the kiss formation.

I would draw it on here but this medium doesn't cope too well with ASCII art. ;)

No doubt team FLIC may have tried something like that (?)

A recent one we just started doing that I like is the gang-matrix. (I think that's its name)

A twister with 6 kites is pretty cool, also switch bursts.

We're now calling the "gang matrix" a "team matrix" instead, just sounded more appropriate.

Kind of like a full pinwheel (leading edge forward), except you exit to the edges after doing the team matrix.

Fairly hard indeed,but as ya said,.would look kewl.It looks Nice to do it with three kites in the merc sign MOVING 2 SPACES.Kissing in the sign would be quite a move.Only having to move one position and then back would be very impressive Choccy.
Never spotted it done before.The Flying Squad im sure do loads a kissing or used to.
