#95369 Anybody flying with tails?

Posted by RevWizard on 06 September 2014 - 06:35 PM

How about this one?
A REV I with six tails on the inner trailing edge. Tails are about 15 meters long.

The tails here are made from Icarex P31 Polyester. Each tail is about 25mm(1") wide. They are hot cut to prevent fraying. They are excellent and slip amongst themselves even in zero wind as long as they don't get wet.

I first tried nylon tails. Their primary faults were being too heavy and snagging each other.
Where do you get Icarex tails? You have to make them yourself.

#95109 ? on old rev

Posted by RevWizard on 18 June 2014 - 04:49 PM

What'sworn look like?? I still fly my Rev 1 with it's original rods with no problem! Unless they are really in bad shape, put it together and fly!!

Wayne, the very early REV I had short end caps at the top of the vertical rods. The cap did touch LE rods and rubbed through the Dacron thus directly to the LE rods.

Revolution made two corrections. There was Kevlar cloth added between the Dacron pieced on the leading edge. The other was an extended rubber cap at the top of the vertical rods.

The changes took place around 1991.

#94816 New REV Indoor for Scott Weider

Posted by RevWizard on 17 April 2014 - 05:18 PM

I receive my new Tiger REV today.

 

This is the one and only(hopefully) Tiger REV using one of my personal © photos.

The resolution of that photo was rather low thus if printed as a photo on a full size REV 1.5 it would look very blurry and pixilated.

This photo was taken by me at the zoo in Munich, Germany in 2005.

I chose to convert the photo to vector graphics which gives it an applique effect.

I defer to you, but it's not as much fun to say.

I agree that Spirograph is a bit more impressive.

The design is actually called Pin-Art or String-Art.

This is my imagination at work of how a train could look.
