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".

Just for the hell of it, I put together a 5 stack of Rev B2s. Here's video of its second flight:

Almost.


Almost makes me want to drop $1700 for a stack. Almost. Wink

Awesome!  The stack tracks really nice. Wish I could get my 3-stack to fly in reverse like that.  The back kite always wants to "tuck under" and takes the others down with it.

Yeah.  Running?

I thought the whole idea of quads was you only had to move your wrists to fly?

I must ask why the last kite in the stack was assembled backwards.
 
Look at the logo at 0:28.

In spite of Revolutions having logos nearly as prominent as a Peter Lynn C-Quad, people still ask me what the name of the kite I'm flying.  Lips sealed


Maybe they thought you were staging a revolution, not advertising.  Cheesy

Quite often on big Rev stacks, the back kite's sail is reversed, so people down wind can see the Rev logo.

The Revolution logo is too small to be noticed when the observer is over 100 feet away.

That is why I suggested using a LOGOKITE™ for either teams or the rear of a stack.

John, have you ever thought of making an photographic encyclopedia for kiters? If I don't know something someone is referencing all I have to do is wait for you to post a photo.

That was a 360. Don't think you can do that dualie without running either.
