Here's the Q Flaps Video, as promised.
Enjoy! It's a tutorial, how they work, how to install, and a demo.

Wow thanks a lot Devin. I've been waiting for something like this for a long time already - insights on how to best leverage the QFlaps on my WM.

I'll be sure to take the advice offer and try them out later :)

no prob Darryl!
Just remember the the backwards flight involves more on the bottom line then a rev does. When you get it its likes riding a bike though- you don't forget.  ;)

cool stuff. i'll have to ask my local shop owner about these. this just might be the right amount of quad lining without becoming a convert.

Hey Devin, ;D;
Nice video of Jon T doing his thing!  I got a chance to fly some REV's at Treasure Island Kite Fest last weekend, so now, I actually understand what those Flaps do to a stunt kite...Makes them  do Rev stuff :D
See ya,
Jim

Can I use Q flaps with rev handles and lines? How much are they and does Steve carry them? Sounds like flying using Q flaps is the same as the HQ tc ultra and quad line foils. Fun!!

The two point landing just got easier.   ::)

Other than the fade in the video, what evidence is there that you can actually trick the kite with these silly things onboard?  I didn't even see a half axel in that video.

Thanks for posting it all the same.

I have a set and played with it on my WM. By ignoring the brake lines altogether and just flying off my index finger hooking on the top line, I was able to do the usual dual line tricks. Cometes, JLs, yoyos, backspins etc.

Though it has a bit if that "Whats the point" as well as an additional lag associated with the 4 lines. I'm really hoping to be able to best leverage the use of the additional 2 brake lines.

Yes you can. Very Doable.

I do not, sorry! I'm a dual line flyer.  :)

Obi- check back in a few minutes and I'll have a short trick video for you. We filmed a lot of the quad stuff, so there wasn't a lot on footage, but there is enough for a decent 3 min video. I'll have it up in a few.
