It's been a while since I had a quad out!

A long while for this pretty Rev 1. I think this is my favorite Rev at this point. Slow and Precise.

Anyone else enjoy the big ol' Rev?

  I have never flown a Rev or any 4 line kites but I'm hoping to try one out this year.

My goal is to fly a Rev every year at least once.

Most years I just make that goal.

Can't quite figure out the appeal of these overly constrained kites.  Kiss

That's a purdy one Allen!  Wink

Makes me think i need to pull my ol' R1 out
and fly it this weekend.

Been a long time since flying the big one,
The multiple 1.5's i own is usually what i'm choosing between.


See ya in a few months!  Grin

I cant quite figure out why I don't fly quad more. Every time I do it's a blast. Maybe I'm just too comfortable, what with the thousands of hours on duallies vs. probably less that 100 (spread over 15 years!) on quad.

New New Years resolution: Keep the Revs in the car, leave the speed bag at home.

They may be overly constrained, but they've allowed me to fly in places with excellent wind, but very unforgiving grounds. The wind off the Point is lovely and smooth, but Heaven help you if you land anywhere except a few narrow clear spots. Constraint helps immensely, plus landing on the driftwood is good practise and fun.

It's oddly satisfying to do a long skim along the water. I find it very relaxing. I wouldn't last 30 seconds flying there on an overly permissive dual liner, but I fly here all afternoon regularly.

Sweet photo Mr. B.  Smiley

For you, I'm sure that kite is perfectly constrained.  Smiley
