Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

As far as quad flying goes... I find it a big help if you don't over-think what you're doing, let your instincts take control. Remembering that Revs require tiny hand movements, not like the dualies, sometimes that's a re-learning issue.

Once launched, keeping your elbows pinned, near your sides at your waist, which helps keep your hands from flailing around (which usually is cause for crashing Cry).

Check-out John Barresi's tutorial videos (On KiteLife and the Revolution sites) to get you started right... and flying with a seasoned quad-line flier will help even more. An hour or so with a seasoned flier should have you up (and keep you up) flying!  Grin

You just yank and spank a Rev.  Grin
