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".

Would love to see that (up-close) and how you accomplish it!   Huh  ...(a video of 'YOU' and your movements!)
 
Not that I'd ever be able to do it!   Cry

 Grin  Awesome flying!

Curious as well as to how you fly both. Dual-liner on your hips and quad-handles in both hands?

Gustavo would not tell me, but I guess he's flying the quad with his left hand only, maybe he's using some kind of special handle....

Check from 3:40 to the end....quad with left hand...dive stop, etc...and dual with right hand "parking" the kite briefly.
Cool stuff. Been done before in different combos by folks (especially in the '90's) but still fresh!!
Tried it myself...'nuff said.

OK. Two possibilities: I try to participate at a Festival in your Country or I do another video... by now the second is more appropiate. Thank you!!!!

Two ways to fly:
First: Revo - left or right hand and dual in another...
Second: Dual on hips and Revo with both hands... I prefer the first.
Third: imagine...
Your choice...
Thanks

I thought about this (for a whole two minutes!), and decided that the way I would do the Rev with one hand would be to carabiner the drive lines to my belt, and use the brake lines on a handle. I think. That way, the turns would work the same way as a delta.

I tried but gave up...why and how...
There were quite a few stories and pix on rec.kites about multiple kite kiters...anyone recall the 3 rev at once guy who then made 12 line puppet kites? iirc the was a fellow who made a chest harness with multiple attachment points and flew different kite combos...water was different then...
I was flying 2 dualies at once and was experimenting with 2 deca`s having made some crude handles. I figured I`d try a combo as well...well not so well...
I tried the dualie with a rev handle (which I still like) and the deca with my crude handle....nope.. So I tried a quad flown like normal and the dualie from my hips...worked a bit better as I had flown off my hips before...but still nope.... Still love 2 dualies at once though and from time to time try a quad with one hand.
Again great stuff and many thanks for the vid!!

Hi... Yes, my friend Roger Maddy flew 3 Revs with independent controls using special handles... In this case I fllew with the original Revs handles. Also I have a video of Roger flying Dual as a Quad, very interesting. Thanks and good winds.
