#96412 Line assembly on my 4 line kite

Posted by Lolly on 14 May 2015 - 02:40 PM

Hi,  Yes, the Bridles should be tied together at the loops at the top middle of wing.

If you can possibly call me with the kite infront of you, I can talk you through it quickly.

I believe there is also a tutorial video, by Watty that shows how to tie the bridles together.


Feed the long loop ( on the horizontal bridle) through the small loop ( on the vertical bridle) about half way.

Fold long loop back on itself and feed down through the long loop.  Pull tight.


Same on left as on the right.


Good winds,


#96410 Ron Despojado Memorial

Posted by Lolly on 11 May 2015 - 02:32 PM

Dear Rev Family,

We wanted to get this message out to you.

Our dear brother Ron Despojado passed away on April 5.  The causes are still listed as natural.  We have no further information.

We will be having the Memorial Kite fly this Saturday at Mariners Point, Mission Bay. ( near Belmont Park, the site of the New Years Day fly.)  We will be there Saturday from 11:00 till 5 pm officially.  We will have a club meeting, a Rev hosted lunch, and a wonderful fly and gathering remembering Ron and all others who we miss dearly.  Please join us, or fly where you can.



Thank you all for your kind words and wonderful memories for my dear friend Ron.  I am truly heartbroken.   Lolly



#96023 Short lines for a beginner?

Posted by Lolly on 09 February 2015 - 10:02 AM

Hi Jonathan,


Welcome to the Rev family.


Wayne is right.  50 ft may do ok.  30 foot now would be way fast.


Mark is right.  'Brakes' is an important move.   You can practice putting on the brakes 30 ft in the air.  You don't have to wait till you are inches from the ground  : )


Have fun !!!!

#95797 Ben's Farewell

Posted by Lolly on 16 December 2014 - 12:12 AM

Kite flying is a beautiful hobby but a very difficult place to make a living.  With that said, we're sad to report that Ben will be spending more of his time pursuing higher paying opportunities.  He is a cherished member of Revolution Kites and our kiting community.  We look forward to many years of community support and team building as his time permits....

Ben will be especially missed at Revolution for his ability to strengthen the community by bringing kite fliers together within the Rev family, and the kiting community as a whole.

Whether supporting team iQuad, answering questions on the Rev forum, spreading his passion of flying at International events, or just hanging out with his many kiting friends, you can always count on Ben to bring some excitement to the party.

It's rare to find people willing to give years of their lives (and personal expertise) even to something as beautiful as kites, but when you find these special people, it's important to honor and support them as they have generously given their time and energy to strengthen our community.   Ben is such a person. 



We'd like to thank the community for their support over the years.  It may sound like a cliché, but it's true.  We can't do it without you.  Your support in turn allows us to support the community, its teams, events and fliers.  When you buy a Revolution kite, you're buying an experience which includes the whole kiting community:  the stores offering knowledgeable product support, the manufacturers that develop and bring you new and unique products, and the teams that show us what is possible. 

Thanks again, and we're looking forward to seeing you on the flying field in 2015.

Joe, David, Lolly

Dear Paul, Steven, and family,


We are still working on the Rev helium project.

Thanks for the poke.




#95470 New Masterpiece Art and Artist

Posted by Lolly on 23 September 2014 - 08:41 AM

Dear Rev Family,


We are very excited to welcome our new Masterpiece artist.  Kevin Bayless has graciously agreed to put his talent into a Rev sail.

We are thrilled to have him onboard.  His style is bold and exciting in flight.


We have received 2 skins and they are completed.  I have added the pictures here.


More skins are due to arrive at Rev today or tomorrow.  Kevin has posted a few preliminary pictures on Facebook also.  They are beautiful, and are getting comments from around the world.   3 are already spoken for.

There will be only 10 in his set.

Send your comments and orders !  They are selling fast.


Good winds,

#95375 Buying a SUL

Posted by Lolly on 08 September 2014 - 10:05 AM

Happy monday Rev family,


Another great day here at Rev.

I talked about the great light wind flying (and giving lessons) of the printed sail.

We had a great response to the Spirograph ( string art) and have a few more of the rainbow colors available.


New to this lightwind set is the Tiger Cubs.  John Mitchell has again, beautifully created this artwork. Thank you John !!

A few of these are available.


This is limited.  Drop me a line.


Have a great week,

#95357 Buying a SUL

Posted by Lolly on 05 September 2014 - 08:09 AM

Hello Desert Rat, and family,


Sorry I have not been vocal lately.

Honestly,  I check what's going on, and the Rev family is so great with answers and info, I am feeling abit un-needed.

No worries.

I am keeping busy with new flyers, new products, and new Masterpiece artists!


For the SUL/ Light wind flying, we are suggesting the printed sails.  They are amazing !

We have a few of the Spirograph sails in the Rainbow colors available now. 

The Tiger Cubs were a huge hit at Long Beach, Washington festival with light wind days.

I gave lessons, Penny demoed with the kite, a great time and no problem in the 2-3 mph winds.

The printed sail with a Diamond frame is the way to laugh-back at a No Wind day.  I know you know what I'm talking about  : )


These are going fast.

Yes,  Give me a call !

Dear Terry, and the South East region,


We are happy to be having a kite event in your area !!  Thank you for your work in making this happen.

Let's do as Rev flyers do-  Get out there and show our support, and how to have fun with the Rev family.


God Bless,


#86186 Lolly is the best!

Posted by Lolly on 23 January 2012 - 03:34 PM

Dearest Family,

Thank you for all the wishes, and congrats. A few notes from my 'speech'.
I want to thank my brothers for allowing me to work on the Board of Directors all these years. If they don't say "OK", it doesn't happen.
I thanked my Mom, who was there to share this moment with me. "She started this family".
I have never had this type of recognition and support.
Thank you all for your support !!!

I am overwhelmed with this love. You have all made a difference in my life- pretty much daily.
God Bless All of You.

#74017 Rev 1.5 Super Ultra-light handles

Posted by Lolly on 08 October 2010 - 08:01 AM

Hello Thomas,

Thank you for using the forum. You have many good questions, and I think a lot of flyers will learn from you.

On the SUL Handle question-
You may buy the Rev 1.5 SUL as a Kite Only. (Kite with SUL frame.)
OR you may buy Kite, SUL handles packaged.

The SUL Handles are stainless steel, the length is 15".
Standard Handles are now 13".
Note: Handle length is measured by the total length of steel used. Not tip to tip after bent.

Everyone- Have a greast flying weekend.
