  1. NC Quad Clinic (Sep 10-11, 2016)

    WHAT - ya mean he's leaving the whip home??!!??
  2. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    Is that signs of the RNG starting to rumble into gear?? All Hail the Mighty RNG!
  3. Revolution Gang

    I see other Revs - time to try team flying?? Everyone get some 80' or even better some 120' lines and learn to fly in control - together!! I know - dirty word that "control", but team flying will teach you that. Up for the challenge??
  4. Therapy Too

    Nice exercise in controlled flight!! LOL!
  5. Welcome Edmond Dragut

    Getting some experienced help for your first sessions out, is without doubt - one of the quickest ways to shave years off your learning curve! Hello Edmond, nice to see you over here!! Ask away - any questions! As an explanation: Edmond got his thread deleted because it wasn't a "real" Rev, over there. Completely understood, so I suggested coming over here where it is a bit less judgmental or biased. He didn't know any better and so now he's over here!

    Too late! Now - the RNG has the dirt on you!!! You are now an unsuspecting pawn in the game of random!

    Looks like all this banter is between KL subscribers - all of which are entered automatically into this drawing!! Continue the banter!!!
  8. Pigtails (tuning your Rev with knotted leaders)

    Why is the sun bright and moon made of green cheese?? All the directions (inverted, upright, left, right) are taken from the relationship with the LE! That is the "so called" point of reference for all direction, (up, down, etc). (Wonder why it's called "the leading edge"?)
  9. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    Wouldn't put it past ya!!!
  10. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    Starting to feel like RNG fodder, just another number to crunch!! But you pays your money and you takes your chances!!
  11. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    Still - it makes me feel like I tried!
  12. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    Had to dig way back in the older giveaway threads for this one -
  13. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    But I like torturing myself with trying to figure out the why and how of the RNG!! So far, nothing I've tried has worked! Silence, yelling, taunting, sarcasm, you name it, I've tried it! Frustrated!! Think I'll go sit in the corner and have a good cry! WAAHHHHHHHHHH!!
  14. B-Series STD Package (5/25/16)

    I fear we are all wasting our time trying to gain favor with the RNG! Idea! Has the RNG ever dated?? Maybe it's lonely and gets its jollies out of disappointing us? Ya know,like misery loves company, or something like that!
  15. Pigtails (tuning your Rev with knotted leaders)

    Well now - deep subject!! My take - Look at it from Rev's point of view as a seller - if you can't launch it - you can't sell it! Just about everything they did in leaders is geared to make it easy to launch! Think about it, what do the longer leaders do? Add control to an already flying kite! Most of us, that have gone the longer leader route, have learned to incorporate or adapted to the needed moves that get the kite airborne. But it does take a bit more effort. Technique helps. learning to preload the sail in preparation of launch, taking a step back in your launch sequence, all take some learning. Especially if you are used to the kite just leaping into the sky!! Even the leaders on the "B" series are a compromise!! Not as long as is really needed, but at least a start in the right direction for those looking for the thing Revs best can deliver - control!
