In Topic: Anyone flying Rev's in Hampshire, UK??

24 April 2013 - 03:17 AM

There are a group who certainly used to fly near Gosport (so depends which part of Hampshire you're talking about!)  Message Sailor99, Jonesey or Yrna to see what they're up to these days....  Jeremy (Sailor99) is unavailable due to work quite a bit, but may be able to advise.

 

Hope this helps.


In Topic: Never used music. Am l missing out?

If flying by oneself, music is a good training tool - just get the right meter & beats per minute.  It's not about enjoying the music (tho' that helps) - but enforcing discipline in manoevres to sharpen the skills.  You turn on the beat, not when you really think you're ready, you set travel speeds to cover your canvas smoothly with the musical phrase.  No matter how the wind pulses or drops.

 

That's my aspiration and, who knows, with more practice I might achieve it one day!  smile.png

 

Give it a go!

If you don't get to meet up with others, see if you can get along to a kite festival sometime - the Portsmouth kite festival over August Bank Holiday weekend has traditionally had quite a gathering of Rev flyers.  These are great opportunities to talk all things kite and pick up a load of ideas.  When you're ready - basics covered: flying with controlled speed, hover at any point of the clock face - they can also introduce you to the fun of team flying.

 

BTW: a set of 120 foot lines is a worthwhile investment...

 

Above all else, *have fun*!


In Topic: Team Flying On The Net

Seems there's already a computer game called 'Revolution'* - not sure if it's multi-player. But surely this would remove the exercise and the fresh air (not to mention driving rain and howling winds) that makes team flying so much fun....? cool.png

 

 

* Of course this Revolution has nothing to do with kite flying.
