Ah, right, sorry. :D

My undestanding is you can fly an indoor outdoors on those days when smoke rises pretty much straight up. I think Watty has mentioned flying outdoors with his. However beware that gentle breeze that catches you out.

I think a B with Professional only rods is pretty much as near a SUL as you can get. Not quite sure on that. Someone will know.

I ahve one of Stephen Hoath's Bai kites I play with on still Days. Not a Rev I know but lots of fun. And almost unbreakable.

You going to get to Portsmouth as well Fraser or just Bristol??

Have a look at JB's suggestion about a midweek session with iQuad, any chance you could get the week off do Portsmouth, iQuad and Bristol. Would be great to see you again.

Yeah - plan is to come to Portsmouth, then a bit of long-intended exploration of the southwest, then Bristol. Haven't seen anything about iQuad midweek though.... what's that all about? :w00t:

Hi All
Just thought I'd let you know, went to clacton Yesterday met up with my unc and his fly friends Bruce and Rob,all flew Rev's.
I was surprised at the learning curve when flying with others, so steep, just a few little suggestions make such a huge difference, by the end of the session was hovering reasonably steadily the reverseing and inverted hover still need working on but at least I now know how to go about it,

so a big thankyou goes out to Bruce and Rob best fun I ever had with my Rev,s, cant wait to get together again.

Some coincidence, we have been flying with Terry for some time he has spoken of you but we never made the connection, good to meet up Jade, nice fun day even though it was bloody freezing, find out about those bridles on the Blast (Nightmare) they are definately not right.
Nice pics from Terry, I will put the vid together of him wiping us all out. :lol:

I have a Little problem
After I launch my Bseries std I power it up as I pull the top of handles back more the kite seems to stall then fall out of the sky. I have tried all the setting on the knot system and the same thing happens. It's not even reaching the top of the window. What am i Doing wrong I never had this with my EXP,
Any suggestions would be helpfull
Thanks
Jade

No offence if this sounds too basic, but you do have the vertical spars on the back of the sail, don't you?
I've seen people with the spars in front of the sail a few times and the kite flies funny that way. :huh:

Hey Jay, just seen a preview of the Team fly. I see you have got the hang of that OK. :)

Well better than me anyway. I have never been brave enough to fly as a pair let alone a Team.

Well done!!

Hey Baloo "Hey Jay, just seen a preview of the Team fly." sshhhh
Our mantra is we DONT team fly, we just happen to be in the same piece of sky sometimes. :lol:

Skunk would have been in but he is in re-hab getting over a terminal C:/

Thanks for help bruce
Baloo like Harrier said same piece of sky at same time quite litrally at times! whats the worst that can happen, pull everyone's kites out of the sky, if you ever get the chance have a go it's great fun and the learning curve is steepened.

Your right Harrier the bottom bridle is supposed to attach to both uprights, just shows how much I flown it :rolleyes:
