It's a 1.5 same as the others, I am just really short lol.

I see! LOL The proportions look different though. Must be the angle.


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.


Fantastic. Well done, and a perfect way of saying to the pondlife who stole your stuff, and in good Scottish parlance: "Gerritupye!" LOL

REVS_AT_REST_15_9_07_009.jpg Ainsdales finest, a nice English seadide scene.A top draw day with some great company.Miles and miles of flat clean sand.Behind where i took the shot the sea is out around a mile away.The coast runs like this as far as the eye can see in both directions.Southport at one end and Formby Point at the other.The building in the distance is a huge PUB and just up the way is ROYAL BIRKDALE.The home of many British open golf championships.
Your correct Mike,
It is a great location and we respect that fact,ALWAYS.

HAAAAA,roll on Summer,,,,

Hello,
Just got a back from a holiday down on the south coast in Dorset.
Managed a whole day flying alsorts of kites (thank you wind gods).
Attached links are pics of me flying our Rev on a beach:

snip...............

*fun* ;)
Choccy (funsized).

I hate to be critical, but Please DO NOT FLY your REVs or other stunt kites when riders on horses are passing by.
Horses spook too easily thus they can throw and injure their riders.
Otherwise, nice photos!

No horses were flown near or spooked in the making of that picture.

My original message and photos have now been removed.

Great shots Chocky,but when i looked at them i did think along the lines Johns mentioned.We come across Horses all the time at Ainsdale Beech.THER USUALLY A GOOD WAY AWAY.The Great Red Rum was trained at Ainsdale Beech[WON GRAND NATIONAL 3 TIMES].I try and stay clear of Horses when flying.It will spook a horse.The riders usually stay clear of us also,so only had one small problem a few years ago.
Love the coast line down south.My favs are Perranporth Beech and Crantock Beech,WONDERFULL places to fly and chill.

I wasn't referring to the age, Jim. I was just being daft about the apparent size in the pic and joking about way that as the smaller the kite the larger the model number.

But it does beg an interesting question - perhaps even another thread:

Who's got the oldest REV....? I don't know when Revolution came into existence the 70's?), but there obviously was the very first commercially-shipped one. I know from here that there're prototypes and experimental ones in existence, but where're the early 'real' kites living now - anyone know?


Who's got the oldest i don't know but i can tell i own a Rev 1 (Black/Pink) with, on one wingtip, the year 1988 written.
I bought it last year from a guy who bought the rev 20 years ago. Actually the kite is in perfect condition because he didnt flew it.
When he was cleaning up his house he found the kite.

I will post a picture of it later !

But i think it is a rev-dinosaur !!!! :kid_smartass:

Together with my 20th-anniversary Rev its a perfect "father/son" couple !!!!!

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

You can also date some of the older rev's (Not Neos Omega) by the use of Dust caps with metal inserts, I believe these were the oldest Rev's. Over to John Mitchell etc...
