I won a stink bid on a 2010 Rev Blast ($99) so now I need to learn how to fly the thing.

Do you know of good video's of starting out on the Rev?

I have the video (VHS) for the Super Blast.  If you're interested, I can send it to you for $5 to cover the mailing envelope and postage.  I don't have a VCR, so it's pretty worthless to me right now.
Let me know via my profile e-mail address.

Thanks for the website...I saw those three video's but that is for winding string, unwrapping and launching.

I am looking for more generic...how do I not create a $100 broken twig the first time out.

Thank you tho for the post.  There has got to be something out there!

Well...ya'll can continue this thread if it helps others.

As You may have seen in another post...the REV BLAST that I received was a knockoff.  Since I have no interest in driving a "Chevy Imp" rather than a Chevrolet Impala...I have decided to pursue a REAL Revolution Kite at a later date.

Anyone selling a Chevy Imp from India?  By the theories of the guy who sold me the REV BLAST...you can have two products with nearly the same name being sold as separate items.  Riiiiiiiiiight.

That really sucks to hear about this knock off. If I were you I'd try to dump it on CL and try to get your money back or at least some of it. Just don't post it as a Rev or anything like that.

Meaning to "dump it" BUT, not "dump it" as a Rev.....pretty much repeating myself.

So in other words don't try and pull off any shenanigans when selling it. Just tell it like it is. The thing FLYS right?Huh  Bottom line it IS a 4 line kite and I'm sure it flys too. It's just not a Revolution and the buyer should be made aware of that and let them decide if they're interested in it or not.

I suppose he can just have a bonfire with it then and bite the bullet.
