I bought one last weekend (5/23) from Seaside Kites at the Hammonasset Kite Festival. I'm sure they have more if you call them.

Keeping in mind I have all of 5 hours total time on any quad (almost none on a Rev), I thought it flew nicely, even in the 15+ winds we had. I could hold an inverted hover rock solid, and even a 45 hover wasn't hard. Some friends also flew it and liked it. The one comment they made was that it didn't spin as tightly as a Rev. Personally, I didn't see that. But, since it has a gull wing shape when tensioned, it kinda makes sense.

One thing I will warn about though. The lines provided were no where near equalized. I didn't check them and it took a while to realize why I couldn't get it to hold at all! Almost 6 inches of difference! Once I got out my lines, it flew great.

The handles provided are like 12 -13 inch and padded all the way to the top, past the line connection. I haven't really used them yet since my handles are on my 80' line and that's what I used.

Since I have a hard time justifying the expense of a Rev, and I think the majority of them are really ugly (or just boring designs), I think this is a really good deal. I've seen them listed online for around $107. if you're not stuck on flying Rev, this is a good alternative, and the graphics are cool!

Just my 2 cents.

Just get both... then you can be fickle without worrying about ordering the second one later.  Wink
