    • Practice clockwork, axels, catch and throw. Learn all that and you will be Master Class. or just a hacking flailer who's enjoying themselves immensely like me!  A dear departed friend once shared,.... "you move up in classification only AFTER kicking & screaming fails!"
    • you can rebuild beginner projects, but nobody does.  Make 'em modification testing and experimental stations since they will be replaced anyway.   The whole "what happens if" becomes easier if you have sacrificial sails to play with during your design phase. Moving the the down-spars entirely, or only adjusting their angles? If you are making baby-sized Revs you should contract Harold Ames. Maybe not, if you don't want to be overwhelmed with information!  Train lines that pass thru the whole stack, instead of connect each sail independently to the ones in front.  Affixing the train lines to the bridle instead of end-caps, when/where to use a taped assembly method instead of sewing.  Use of a one piece leading edge tube and reinforcing for higher wind (or more kites in the stack) by insertion of pultruded carbon tubes inside that LE. enjoy and keep sharing
