In Topic: Rev UFO: outdoor?

I have a UFO that is vented, (as well as the original 1st. one, entered by Lee SEdgwick from the AKA Nationals) it's pretty cool in a bigger wind, you can flick it all around with the quad handles, even flying it into the up-wind and working your way back around to down-wind again!

The quad handles allow the kite to spin around it's center very easily, therefore occasionally you simply unwrap by rotating the handles around a central point, (on the ground, rather than unwrapping in flight).

My vented model also has a set of magic stick/training wheels ~ type of device that won't allow it to rest completely flat on the ground. They are curved micro-carbon rods that intersect with the outer circle framed tubes and form an "X" behind the sail. now you can bounce the kite off of the ground to great effect.

The UFO is a very entertaining kite that is relatively cheap to acquire. Many folks never break them down, instead transporting in a big circular kite bag. They are easy to recognize fliers, go ask for a chance. (You'd have to run it over with an automobile to hurt the darn thing!!!)



Thansk everybody for replay.
I am interested in it , but it's unavailable in Italy.
RevFlyer: where did you buy your vented?
