Title: 15 - 25 mph
Post by: Dano on March 29, 2009, 08:59 PM
With my new vented... No Problem!  8)

I've never had so much fun in 15+ winds as i did today.
And i never new a vented Rev was such an inverted hovering/slide machine.
I think i spent more time upside down than rightside up... :P

It is a smooth flying machine all right. It can put you in Zen mode real quick.

 :D That's funny! Because we had similar discussion to that effect in the field yesterday.

The forecast today is 20 mph with gusts to 30. It's a little more than I'd want to try. I've never broken a stick because of high wind and I didn't want to start now.

Last week I flew my vented Rev 1 in the mid teens and it was a blast! Tomorrow it's supposed to be back in the mid-teens and I'm definitely going out at lunch time. I love the Revs when the wind is too high to do slack-line tricks.

Did they want a cigarette... or a 'stinky' cigar?

You know me, "I" prefer the stinky cigars.

The CTR can sell you a vented Rev II. It's not as smooth flying as the vented Rev 1.5, but it has light pull in 20+ winds. Keeps you flying as long as you want to be out in the wind.

I have a Rev 2 vent, and I can fly until it's so windy I don't want to be outside anymore ???
