When I first started making single line kites this whole bias stretch thing was rammed into my head............(This is to avoid an unnecessary long post)...............................................
Not all of this kite design stuff is making pretty sails!
OK enough nerd talk. We will be onto wing loading if your not carefully! ;)

Yeah, thanks for all of that kite making knowledge. I've got some ideas and as soon as I have some time (not until the winter), I'm going to try some things out. Hopefully you'll see some cool stuff next year at those fests.

Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe

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 :censored:

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 :ani_notworthy:

This is from the school of hard knocks...or should it read pieces of S**t that I have built.
Without making mistakes you learn nowt. The trick is to learn what went wrong.
*administrator snip*
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 :ani_notworthy:
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. :kid_smartass:

Dammit missed it by --><-- that much :censored: :cat_censored: :kid_cussing: :kid_loved: :big_blowup:
You may just single handedly prevented the next masterpiece series right there, I know there are rules :ani_rtfm: but it would have been sweet to have my idea of the Ninja Claws™ kite as a cousin to those eyes, well back to the drawing board :artist:

No worries, there was no intention for a Fort-Series lmao, I think I just got kicked back into the stone age. Maybe I can get on that new caveman show now, that will rake in the cash and I can buy more kites.

Oh can you send that bag over here so I can pick through the trash ?? can ya tell I really wanted to read that lol.

Of course, I'm not telling you not to make that "special Rev" for your own collection...

But certainly, it's appropriate to discourage people from instructing others how to make their own on this web site. ;)

As for the custom sails, I realize no one has posted here in awhile, but someone might benefit anyway.
I'm pretty sure Peter Betancourt was during custom Rev sails, but I don't know how much $ he charges,anyone could check at: Peter Betancourt sport Kites if they are interested.

Is this guy just selling them by going through Revolution, or is he making these sails?

I don't know for sure, but I know he's been around for a very long time and puts out some very detailed work. On his page under the custom Revolutions, (kinda makes me think he's got permission) the black Rev with the iQuad looking dudes is cool. All of thos sails are pretty kick hiney.
Peter was making very high end kites back before I started flying. He let my father fly his kite in 1 mph wind and thats what got my family into kiting in the first place.

They don't have the rev logo on, so I would assume they are not rev sanctioned or indeed rev royalty paid. Some would not buy them as a result, others would feel less uncomfortable about it. But, without moralising, we should be sensitive that this is a manufacturer's website.......

Never mind... I just Googled him.

I've seen some of these kites before. The reason he's able to make these is because his designs do not match any of the standard rev designs. If for example the kites had the same panel layout as the Rev 1.5, then it would be a problem.

The revs that we were initially talking about on this thread were custom color revs. (meaning normal panal layouts with different colors)
