Ok I'm in.
This is the kite I built for nationals after the others umm went bye bye.. ( still looking by the way).

Way to 'get back on the horse', Amy! Well done. :kid_content: That looks like quite a kite though - it's big! How did you get on at the Nationals then?

I think it's a .00001 because it looks so large in comparison to Jim :blue_wink:

Yeah, that was what I was joking about, not the age, but the age is more interesting - see my above post.

I do believe he's got it balanced on top of the pole. ;)

..................I see.

I thought you were joking!

Balancing on top of objects is tons of fun.
Start with large objects such as an unobstructed pole with maybe a large ball on top if possible. Then try to land all four cardinal points of the REV in sequence on it. Once you master a large object, work yourself down to something like a glass soda bottle, which has some weight, or similar bottle.

Look at Rev's advertisement in the last issue of AKA's Kiting magazine (volume 29 issue 3)... Page 22.

You'll see me flying a Rev 1.5, doing a tip stand on one of five concrete posts (there were actually six)... An absolutely great practice spot, tapping or landing on each post in sequence, stepping forward or back to match, varying depending on the wind direction.

That was shot in Vicente Lopez, a part of Buenos Aires, Argentina... One of my favorite places to fly a Rev worldwide.

Headed back there November 20th through December 5th. ;)

Ha! I remember that. ;)

On the top of that pole, there is a short rod... Same diameter as the ones all across both arms, but much shorter.

Tricky bugger to land on, and there's always the chance of hooking your bridle or line!

I also had fun hovering between the center flag pole and the flag line on the right side. <grin>

I love balanceing on stuff. I usually land on top of trees, soccer balls, or people. Which ever is closest :)

The pole[post 23] Dave had his rev Balanced on[i taught him everything he knows :P ] we take turns all doing the same.Its ok until the Bridle slips over the pole, the wind drops and the Rev falls down the pole.

Happened to me and we had to untie the Bridle to free my stranded Rev :blushing: .A few weeks later i got the same rev stuck up a pole twice as tall as the one Daves balanced on.After trying allday we couldnt get it free.We couldnt climb up,it was blowing a gale.So it was unsafe.

After six hours the wind dropped and a Galant Lad offered to get it.He did get it down,FREE OF CHARGE[three local Power kiters wanted 20 to get it down].When he get it,I let him keep it,just to P... The Power Kiters Off and as reward for being a real Gentleman and HERO.

How funny! Bri, you stood in a gale for six hours and gave away your Rev kite just to p... off a power kiter.
I must be sick because I love the fact that the nut that climbed the poll got to keep the kite. Next time you fly you may find him sitting at the top of the pole just waiting for another wayward Rev.

:lol: :lol: :lol: ,Its a true story.He was the only guy that was genuine enough to help without reward in .So i thought ,Kill to birds with one Stone.P,,, the Power guys off and reward the new Rev flyer and Knight in Shineing Armour.

One thing about Flagpoles,
The one i got stuck up is used for signaling to shipping and Bathers.I had the Brains to inform the Coastguard/Police/Firebregade/and local Lifeboat that the Green Flag flying was my kite.Didnt want the next shipping disaster being on account of my bad luck.You never know,a green flag may mean turn Left to a ship or something,and the way my luck was running,i go sink a SUPER TANKER with my Green Rev :lol: :lol: :lol:

It's a 1.5 same as the others, I am just really short lol.
I debated whether to try making another up till 6 days before Nationals.. and honestly, I nearly didn't finish it. I did ok at Nationals. It was my first time there.
I managed to win the Open Individual Freestyle.. with the Charlie Chaplin routine and kite.
