Title: B2 5 Stack
Post by: Watty on July 11, 2012, 10:39 AM
Just for the hell of it, I put together a 5 stack of Rev B2s. Here's video of its second flight:

That was really nice.

It almost makes me want to fly Revs.

Almost.

Almost.


Almost makes me want to drop $1700 for a stack. Almost. ;)
(I think all that running I saw in the video was the deal breaker. "Run? For fun? What the hell kind of fun is that?")

Awesome!  The stack tracks really nice. Wish I could get my 3-stack to fly in reverse like that.  The back kite always wants to "tuck under" and takes the others down with it.

Yeah.  Running?

I thought the whole idea of quads was you only had to move your wrists to fly?

 :D

I must ask why the last kite in the stack was assembled backwards.
 
Look at the logo at 0:28.

In spite of Revolutions having logos nearly as prominent as a Peter Lynn C-Quad ([url]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v390/skb/hey_is_your_name_PETER_LYNN.jpg[/url]), people still ask me what the name of the kite I'm flying.  :-X


Maybe they thought you were staging a revolution, not advertising.  :D

Quite often on big Rev stacks, the back kite's sail is reversed, so people down wind can see the Rev logo.

Aye, spot on.

The Revolution logo is too small to be noticed when the observer is over 100 feet away.

That is why I suggested using a LOGOKITE™ for either teams or the rear of a stack.

John, have you ever thought of making an photographic encyclopedia for kiters? If I don't know something someone is referencing all I have to do is wait for you to post a photo.

That was a 360. Don't think you can do that dualie without running either.
