Remember Ramraider, you need to treat the rev much more like a soufflé - you can't slap it around like a foil or a delta and expect it to rise into the air - it would just sink.

At the risk of being insulting, one of the common mistakes people new to revs make is to put the upright rods on the front of the kite. The instructions are not always clear on this. They should of course be on the opposite side to the bridle.


I think you just hit the nail on the head took it out earlier same thing would not rise slack lines , so what did i do put the upright rods on the back :confused!: with a extra knot on the brake line controler and it lifted into the sky not for long as the wind was a bit choppy today plenty of wind then none even some guys with 4m foils were falling out the sky

thanx for the advice guys all was welcome

For a biginner to revs, I would so go for 10mph, or above That would give you a good chance. ;)
In other words, today is just right. ^_^

Oh that's unfair, he's not here to defend himself! :P
I think it's cos you were trying to fly it like you were steering a yatch/ car steeringwheel !!
cheeky as ever.

Yeah you definitely need the brake lines to give you resistance or else disaster.

Ram> Did you get your lines free with your kite ?


yes the lines and handles came with the kite the are 90 1b x 80 ft laser pro gold

Hi there and thanx for all the swift replies i think i have been compairing the rev with a foil it was that when i had attached the lines and the kite was standing up level held by the other half the line just seemed to be slack maybe its just me and the wind that day was very light

Q what are the optimal wind speeds for these kites also what is the angle of attack approx


will try it again with better winds see what happens many thanx for looking
