Jay, Steve, Sherrie and everyone else:

Count me in too. I'm fairly new to quads and haven't been able to fly for several months now due work, family etc.... and now my left hand is splinted due to a broken thumb, but I should have my hand back by New Years.

Looking forward to meeting so many of you all that I have read about.

You can now count JD Fabich (yellow on iQuad) for Florida, and yet ANOTHER of our team members will check in sometime in the next day or two as well. ;)

As I woke up and was once again reminded of this Christmas season. I got to thinking about things flying in the night with lights and how very wrong it would be to do a iQuad night fly without Rudolph, So with that being said I'll be there as well.

What an opportunity for an average Rev fly boy like myself to get my name on a Rev WORLD record! . More, more, more.

I think we'll need to make the mega fly attempts an "end of day" affair, to close out the festival day...

We're talking about TONS of kites and lines out there, better to tidy up after it's all done than in the middle of the day.

Also, I will be leading a brief meeting prior to each of the mega fly attempts... With that many pilots, we've got to have a few basic things clear.

==

During the attempts:

No showboating, or "big sky flying"... All it takes is one kite going awry, and 10 other pilots are untangling lines for a while.

When we're not in a team action, keep the kite in your vertical space, about 20-30 ft wide, center window, anywhere between the top of the window and the ground.

==

I'll be spacing "team captains" every 6 pilots down or so from the front, so that there are experienced pilots available everywhere to give advice or help explain any maneuver... All the maneuvers with a group this big will be very simple, but super COOL...

We'll try to spell "TI 07" and hold it for a few minutes, so photo and video hounds can get their shots in.

We can also do a "wave", like shown in the 48 Rev mega fly video.

Around the world is an easy and fun one, easier shown than explained.

More to come, as I think of it.

Here's the 48 Rev mega fly vid... You'll see formation of letters/numbers, and the "wave".



We'll also get into "team by team" stuff...

With over 25 kites, it's pretty much impossible to do a full follow, so we break into 2-3 groups, with those "sub-teams" doing follows and other maneuvers side by side. ;)

Ya, radios might help... I'll be transmitting, so any pilot with a traditional walkie talkie and headset can listen in during the mega fly.

Good thought, but no... We'd end up with a slight sound delay, which would drive me bonkers.

Also, in the event our commentary gets a little colorful... Well, you know. ;)

We're good, thanks.
