#94345 Spectra Fishing Line vs Spectra Kite Line

Posted by RevWizard on 29 January 2014 - 09:03 PM

The line I saw was made in the USA.  And it is not suppose to stretch.

The key words are "not suppose".

In actuality spectra/dynema kite lines will stretch, however is quite minute.

The fishing line in, comparison, will stretch quite a bit. As a fishing line that is not critical, however for stunt kite stretch is critical.

 

If you are satisfied with LaserPro stay with them. They are excellent.




#94342 Spectra Fishing Line vs Spectra Kite Line

Posted by RevWizard on 29 January 2014 - 07:38 PM

From what I have seen on the forum there are a number of negatives.

- The weave is different in that the fishing line stretches where the kite version doesn't.

- The color I hear is of such a nature that it is not easily seen on the ground.

- wear is another fault I heard somewhere.

-etc (there are more reasons which I don't recall)

Save yourself some grief and even money in the long run and buy good quality kite kines such as Shanti and LaserPro. Stay away from the cheap Spectra/Dynema  kite lines often coming from China.

Yeah, make sure he gave us a legitimate email address where the validation email is sent. Once there is a response from that validation email, the authorization process may continue.

This is all necessary to prevent spamming and other malicious issues.

 Final Status!

I must confess that I was a bit pessimistic that we would be able to identify all the pilots and their positions within the 9x9(81) matrix. You can surely congratulate yourselves for your awesome efforts in completing this.

WOW! WOW! WOW!

#93447 Inverted hover?

Posted by RevWizard on 31 August 2013 - 04:22 PM

Outside of a lot of practice, I can't think of much to say beside starting upside down and practice hovering just above ground.

Who were all the pilots in 9x9 (81) matrix and what position did they fly in? Who were all the helpers?
I was Column 3 Row 7.
Where were you?

The 100 REV record is still open. The best to date remains at 81 REVs.

When and where it happens, nobody knows!




#93414 Revolution 25th Anniversary - 100 strong at WSIKF! (Aug 19-24, 2013)

Today we broke the World Record at 81 Revolutions flown in a 9x9 matrix. We flew for about 20 to 30 minutes flying Vertical threads, Horizontal Threads. 4 concentric rings and one huge ball. The Director was John Barresi who himself stood at a distance behind us in a place where he could easily observe every REV and getting us out of jams. In addition there were several REV fliers on the ground assisting us. Congratulations to everyone.

With the Concentric Rings we performed both slow and fast burst. The bursts were performed in two fashion, one being all at once the other being sequential by rings. With the big ball we also performed a burst, however the ring was so huge that I being one near the bottom could only move a few feet before I was touching the ground. If you you look at the wiggly REV on Column 3 Row 7, that is mine being a yellow/black B Series. Almost all maneuvers were performed at least twice.

John Barresi and I have been working on animations for the WSIKF Grid 100 later this month. These animation DO NOT use Flash which means they will function on MAC, iPhone, iPad and most other mobile devices including Amazon Kindle Fire.
The initial set of animations are now available at:
http://www.johnnmitchell.com/
Animation/grid100/index.html
I do know it we will have the time to add to this before WSKIF 2013.

You will need JavaScript enabled in your internet browser, which it usually is by default and you will need a later up to date browser of which almost all can handle HTML5 to some extent.

There are mpeg4 and mov video files at:http://johnnmitchell.../index-mp4.html andhttp://johnnmitchell.../index-mov.html . The .mov works well on iPad and Quicktime. The mpeg4 files can be used directly without a browser on Windows, Kindle Fire HD and other devices.
