Returning to the Revolution
Posted 06 November 2007 - 02:31 PM
Almost 15 years ago, I had a Rev I, then purchased a Rev II as a followup. They both lasted until life got in the way, and parts were broken/lost/misplaced in a move.
Now, I want to get back into kiting, but also have my wife participate.
What's the best Rev for someone who had experience flying a Revolution, but will also be gentle enough for an absolute beginner?
I live in an area of California where afternoon wind gusts of 5-12 mph are quite common. And in 20 minutes, I could be in an area where the Santa Ana winds were clocked at 84 mph last weekend. This explains why I broke some things years ago.. a 30+ mph gust nuked my kite as it was just lifting off. It (and I) were dragged across the field.... (No, I won't be flying in those!

Whichever Rev you get you will have fun with. I wish I could get my Wife interested, suppose I should just be glad that she is happy that I am happy with flying.

Especially in an Area where the Big Winds are common.
The Fat Boy leading edge might be just right for your Specific situation..
Yes the Barresi Revs are Awesome and I fly them myself.
But there are times when the Wind get into the Low Teens..
Thats when my Old school Vent is just right.
Have a Fun Fly and Invite all the Rev Flyers from your Area to fly on the Home field.
Then you can Try Out the Kites and See whats best for you...
Any Exuse for a Rev Fly is a great Idea...
