Rev, Rods and Wind Range

28 September 2012 - 02:07 PM


Yes i know to all you pro rev pilots, this may seem like a stupid question, then you fly a rev 1.5 there is a lot of different rods to use and you switch them around. but for new pilots it can be hard to tell what rod to use. meaning that you can see on revs sites, the rod you get along with the kite what wind they work in and can handle. but is you take a standard b-series and put race rod i dont know what wind range there is save to use it in, there fore i have made this.

Low wind flying

25 September 2012 - 09:43 AM


Well to i did decide to give low wind a go, i pick up my bag and a dual line zero wind kite, only because i have been very very very bad at flying revolutions in low wind. normal i just crash all the time because of the problem with the low wind. i pretty new at revolutions, have flow for about 2 year but much practice or fly time because of work, but now that is going to change.

So before i left i had watch all, John Barresi video at LearnKites.com about low wind flying, flat relaunch and sail loading. it look very easy and John is a pro. I did just hope some of it could help me to getter in low wind.

I arrived to field and did find my b-serie standard which had and a 3 wrap frame in it. no problem i just switch to a 2 wrap. but after looking in the kite bag, i found out that all my extra rod was home..... :confused!: :confused!: :confused!:
well i decide to give a go, had the same problem with my line my new short line was at home.. :confused!: lesson learn check kite bag before leaving home...

end op with b-serie standard and 90# 80ft lines and 3-5 mph wind. could have been worse.
i did go all right flying up and down gain ground, and did manage some bicycle rotation then waking back, the loading sail help to get the kite back up to the top of the window and dive to gain the ground again.
after 30 min and only 3 crash, but all recovered with a flat relaunch thanks to John. but then wind did die and went from 0-1,8 mph. then i did remember that the 20th rev come with a race frame, i quick put that back on the lines, and i was back in the air, another 1 gone and crash 2 time and recovered every time.

i have to say i did not think i was able to do that just because i have watch the video, had i not i have started flying my dual line after 10 min. to all of you there new rev flyer like me, learn kites video do works and i almost as easy as John makes it look.
i I'll definitely need to get a zen, it was really cool to be able to fly in low wind fields, it should hopefully only becomes better if i get hold of a zen.
