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 Smiley

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.  Wink

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.   Roll Eyes

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.  Smiley

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.
