OK that does it, you have tickled brain cells that I'm enjoying.
When does internship at the Bazzer School of Kite Building start ??
I wanted to take a stab at making one this winter after taking a course in sewing, now your making me want to take a course in aerodynamic science as well.
My one main problem with projects is I'm very much the perfectionist and I'm also heavily into overkill (can be a bad combo), you should see me paint a wall one brush mark I'll paint the whole thing over to cover it lol.
So basically what I'm getting from all this is I don't just want to take a sheet of material, lay it out, cut my shape and sew the edge seams and go fly. If that is the case I just had a big stick thrown into the spokes of my turning wheel
Johnny 5 will need much more Input. (this could be dangerous) which means NEVER enough nerd talk Bazz, some of us eat it up like Pringles Chips once you pop you can't stop
This is from the school of hard knocks...or should it read pieces of S**t that I have built.

I can see a few things that could improve reverse flight and will sit down with Ben at WSIKF and compare thoughts.
Ben is working and trying a few things that (in my opinion) are most certainly in the right direction.
It's been great hanging around with him and IQuad. You begin to see whats needed next.
Ben is always open to suggestions and works tirelessly to improve the product.
At times you have to remember quite how good these guys are and that if they find it difficult to do certain things...it is.
They fly on feel and like many others on this forum have many years of practice.
The Race Spar is certainly a good thing, along with 2,3,4 wrap frames. It certainly puts a great response into your hands.
As a new Rev Flyer I am learning that the right spar combination , sail and line weight for the wind is key. Nothing however replaces experience
First thing I am certain of is to get rid of those SLE's. I might start using mine as banner poles! or broom handles.
