  1. Quad Race Rods...

    Very Sound advice and probably the best you'll ever get right there. With experience you can spank just about anyone with a old EXP in hardly any wind. Race rods are great for their ability to spring back to shape after loading up usually good in a standard sail up to about 10mph after that they get a bit squishy but would work great in a vented from 5-15mph (with practice) Enjoy them they are great.

    Damn I hope I don't win that one, I mean seriously look at it can't even fly straight all it does is flop around in the wind. Poor John had to run around in circles just to get it to fly somewhat straight, Gotta give him credit though he kept at it I would have stopped trying to control that thing long before.
  4. Forum Templates/Skins

    Just a small bit of advice to make everyone happy in the easiest way. Make the default forum the simplest and less cluttered it can be as it is now on the Rev Forum and offer other options for the people that want it. You know the tech savvy people will find their way to the other skins and features. This to me would seem to be a more inviting way to keep people from being shocked and frustrated into not visiting as often. Me personally I'm still not to fond of this one, way too many box's side panes status's ext. ext. especially on this 42" monitor it looks like Wall St. Once I was able to collapse the ones I wanted (and keep them that way) it seems a bit better aside from once in awhile I come on and it's all exploded again (I'm thinking ya made an adjustment that reset things) although that hasn't happened in a bit. Anyway that's my 2 cents+tax I'm sure you get the jist of what I mean. Hope that helps some, Or adds more confusion cause that can be fun too

    Race rods are basically 2 wrap weight with 3 wrap stiffness and some added quicker reflex. With what you have I would suggest trying 3 wrap center with 2 wrap outer's in the LE and 2 wrap down spars for light wind. That is pretty much what most used before the race rods were made. That and lots of practice
  6. Mid-Vent Black Rainbow

    You might be surprised how low wind a mid-vent with race rods will fly, With some practice 2-4 mph is very doable. Lower with some fancy footwork
