#68052 100 Rev fly at 2010 WSIKF (Aug 16-22)

Just keep piling it on.

Honestly, this is too much. It is un-nerving for anyone who has had no chance to fly in a group before. A few days before the big attempt to be whipped into shape and practice only adds to the pressure, it doesn't help to ease it. I've always had reservations about attending a week long festival and this is part of those reservations.

Those of us who are 99% solo flyers are the minority and shouldn't hold the rest of you back, but seriously this is not looking like anything I want to do looking at 10 diagrams and more added every day and rolling around the sky in big circles now. Jeepers, no. I don't need that kind of pressure in my life, that's why I fly, to escape some stress.




I attended the Rev Clinic, and participated in 4x4 grid flying. Up to that time, I was (basically still am) a solo flier, low end of intermediate skill. If you can hold decently stable hovers and back up all directions without catastrophe, you will find this a blast! We did not have the benefit of diagrams before-hand, but John's patient direction was enough to get us (most of us) going the right direction with just a few tries. 4x4 or 10x10 - I think the main issue is remembering if you are even or odd row and column, and if you are center ring... outer ring. A little group practice will ease that anxiety.

Try it. I guarantee you will do better than I, and have even more fun. :P

I hope to meet you at WSIKF 2010, Bart.

Now this a really stupid question: Is the inverted flight in Australia easier than on the northern side of the world??????????? :confused!:

Tis the same, because the winds are also inverted like the kite - canceling out the hemispherical differences. :kid_content:

Now, about the seasons... Christmas in summer is just darn silly. Have a good'un anyway.
