Thanks John,


No idea why there is that difference in flying style between European Pilots and Non-European Pilots.

You can see it also in the competition video's ...... difference in style between the continents.

Maybe it's all about influences too....Problem could be we never meet that much non-European pilots here.


In individual flying i prefer the more snappy/clockwork/stops style and in team flying the more fluid style although we are working these day to have that snappy style in our team too.

It also changes with the way i feel when flying....relaxed...full of energy...etc .Nice to put feeling in the kite...that's why i like these kites.



For me personally i like to fly every possible style...switch between the clockwork/stops style and the more fluid style.

I love to mix styles, i think we all do......we all copy the things we see and like.

(quote tommylurvebus "Always find some inspiration in your offerings")

Really new things are hard to find after 25 years i guess, most of the things are done already.


I Love your style, funny to see many are influenced by that. I love Polo's style too.

Much more great pilots where i find my inspiration:Guido.Steff Fermé, Chris Goff, Carl Robbertshaw, Watty ....too much to mention.

Mix these styles....and have fun...as said..i think we all do.


Discussion about style is hard, style is all a matter of taste..

#91705 Just 4 Fun Team Standards (English & German)

Posted by Madquad on 18 February 2013 - 11:39 AM




Born out of the experiences of many years in (mega) team flying and the question from lots of new revolution pilots, Dutch enthusiasts Marc van der Graaf, Roelof van der Tak and Wil Ammerlaan wrote this manual outlining the team flying standards they use with their team(s). A standard not only in calling and terminology, but also an essential introduction to some basic team flying techniques and moves, easy to understand so the effect is a smoother cooperation between pilots from all over the world.

Main objective was also to make it more fun to fly together and take away the language barriers - please take your time to read it and hopefully this offered a positive contribution to our Family of Revpilots all over the world.


Have fun !!!!!

#79734 How to improve the B std's low end?

Posted by Madquad on 01 May 2011 - 07:06 AM

I've made a light wind video too which you can check
Wind was about 4 Mph.

Used B-Pro with RaceRods on 100 ft lines.

Notice that the right equipment is half of the light wind way of flying...the other half is practice and practice !!!
I've got a Polo-rev too since a couple of days...this will be my ultimate lightwind kite i guess......we were flying this in a stable 2/3 Mph wind in pair and it turned out like a miracle , so smooth and still the feeling of that pressure you need.

#71316 Slidey Foam Grips

Posted by Madquad on 20 July 2010 - 11:56 AM

Well I have tryd lots of ways to fix the foam .... best one so far is to get some double sided tape and some washing up liquid ...first decide where you want the foam then a ring of the tape around the top and the bottom (where the foam is going to stop) then I just wound the tape round and round top to bottom ....then take off the the covering of the tape mix your washing up liquid with a little water wet the whole lot with the solution and slip on the foam...wait till it drys and go fly.. simple

This is a great way to fix the problem i guess..........A BIG friend of mine from the UK gave it to me and i must say...it worked great !!!!

And another tip (Allso from the UK !!) :

There are three ways you can do this. Firstly shape the end of the rubber using some sand paper(for DIY) then either:

1, take the tape and wrap a small piece around the handle at the place where the foam will be at the top so that it looks like a ring on the handle. Repeat this down the handle until you get to the end of the grip with gaps of about 20mm between each piece of tape.


2. take a strip of tape as long as the grip and put it on the handle in line with the hole on the front of the handle (as if you were holding it) do the same for the back of the grip.


3. take a long strip of tape and spiral it down the handle for the length of the grip with a gap of about 10mm between the tape.

The last one is my preferred technique.

Then when you are ready to put the foam on the handle make a solution of 1 part washing up liquid to 9 parts water. Rub a good amount of this liquid onto the tape then quickly push the foam on. (be sure to mark the handle with the position for the grip) I pushed the foam down onto the handle as it gave me a larger area to grip it.

Good luck !!
