    • This should be helpful. Zero_Wind_Deca._manual.pdf Even with instructions it can be mind-boggling the first couple of times. I once tried to assemble one in the field without instructions and got nowhere. Best to have someone show you, and even then if you don't fly it for a year or two you'll probably need a refresher course.  
    • So it wasn't just me... Ok it was mostly me! But it's nice to see that Prism has announced a redesigned centre T for the Quantum!
    • Pretty Cool.  I'll bet that he bought it during the Washington State International Kite Festival.  That one looks like the pre-HQ Six panel version.  Are the handles wood or bent carbon-fiber spars? I'll be honest, while both are fun to fly, the Deca has a zen quality to it that the rev just doesn't have.  Now I am just throwing out an opinion, but I would ditch buying a rev, and just start flying what you have.  The initial setup is tricky, but after you have done it a few times and learn how to put it away and set it up, you can do it just as quickly as a rev.  They pack up pretty small.  You can lay on your back in the grass and fly them one-handed.  They will float and move about on the breeze with a magical quality.  It will remind you of your dad.  The skills that you learn while flying it will translate over to the rev.  You might want to try it out before getting a rev.  Rev has been around for a while, and I doubt they are going anywhere.  You can always pick one up later.  Many Rev flyers have never flown anything but a rev, so that is all that they have opinions about. I would love to pick up another Deca, but I really think that you should try flying it first.  My dad hasn't passed on yet, but I won't ever sell that set of Trlbys that he got, oh, so long ago.
    • Hi Brett, My Dad flew his Rev and two Deltas and he got the Synergy for my Mom.  He bought the Synergy at '94 and stopped flying in '99 due to health issues just prior to his passing.  Al the gear has been in his kite bag in my Mom's house since then.  The handles etc are also in the bag. Have a boo at the receipt:  
    • I always have interest in Decas.  Let me know if you want to get rid of it.  When was it purchased, and what was the original price?
