#92508 Which 1.5B??

Posted by Gasmanwj on 23 April 2013 - 08:22 AM

Thanks everybody for the really useful advice. I think I am pretty much settled now on getting a standard 1.5B as a package, and then in a few months time look to pick up a vented 1.5B. I understand that finding a mentor would be the best plan, anyone know of anyone flying Rev's in or around Hampshire in the UK? I'm definitely going to try and get to teh Portsmouth Kite Festival later in the summer.

Thanks for all of the advice so far. It is hard to say what the normal wind range that I will fly in would be as it depends if I am inland or on the coast but I guess it will mostly be between 5 & 15mph. I am not saying I will never buy a second Rev simply that at the moment (and for the next few months) I can only afford one and want to make sure I get the most appropriate one first! 

At the moment I am leaning towards getting the standard first, it seems to cover the wind range I am likely to encounter and as a beginner I am less likely to fly the Rev in higher winds initially I think - have other kites I can fly then :) That would then mean I could get a full vent later.

Would that be the way?
