Don't be shy JoneZ, at least come hang out with us on the Rev field...

Even if you don't feel ready for mega team, we'll throw you in a small group of easy roundabout, good bump and giggle. <grin>

Trust me, you'll have a blast and learn lots... That's the whole idea, regardless of how far you want to take it in the long run. ;)


hehe, sounds good. We were still planning on hanging out on saturday with y'all -- so many names I need to put with faces (not like I'll remember them heheh) -- it's my Wifes brithday weekend, so it's gonna be a blast for sure. Might even get her to try a rev? heheh They intimidate her, so it may take some coaxing. :)
We'll be staying at the Chautauqua lodge (almost right across the way from the WKM) at the end of the flying fields for wsikf. Hopefully we'll get a good room and be able to see the festival from our suite. :)
Arriving sometime Friday midday - leaving sunday.

See you all there!! :)

Gettin a little excited here. :) Just booked a hotel for fri through sun. Will be seein y'all there. :)
On a side note, I don't think I'll be able to make the 100 rev fly. My skills aren't the greatest, and the last thing I want is to domino 100 revs (although that would be oddly fun to watch -- a nightmare to untangle). o.0

We'll see you all there next Weekend. :)

Sounds like a plan Jb. :)
Im interested to feel (for the first time on both accounts) the difference between the race frame and Zen frames. Probably will be the determining factor in which set I end up purchasing down the line.

I was out messin around yesterday again -- wanting to fine tune the leader lines -- and I ended up sticking another knot in my top leaders so I could tune a little more ( I only had 3 knots starting at 11" in 1/2" decrements). so 1/4" by 1/4" I adjusted my top leaders, having my bottom leaders around 2 1/2". I ended up settling with my top leaders being around 9 1/2".
Im starting to feel the sweet spot now. Its got to do with vertical and inverted flight, but more so with hovering in those positions. Right around that point (8" - 8 1/2" of brake) is where I can almost let the handles loose in my hands (just thumb and fingering the top of the handles), and be able to hover in place. Anything significantly more or less and I have to keep a more rigid grip on the handles, and therefor I struggle more hovering.

I think my lines are a bit off again -- even though I re-measured them a few days back -- so I'll have to string them out and see. I noticed that in inverted flight, with my handles side by side I was listing slowly to the right..

In Topic: new sticks for the 1.5 Rev?

thats a great critique quaa. :) Thanks for that.
Being new to Rev flying, and thinking of snagging a race frame, your post has caused a little bit of duality in me. hehe
Now Im thinking of skipping the race rods and grabbing a set of zen rods. I mean, it's only $10 more and from the sound of your post, the performance is overall better, and a better fly, compared to the race rods.
I'd love to hear more from others who have gotten a chance to compare these 2 frames. :)
edit** Does anyone have the weight of both frames?
