5th annual West Coast Rev Clinic

Nick, I'd love to do one on the east coast... The real issues are:

1. Covering travel expenses for 1-3 instructors from iQuad.

2. Covering the lost work time (i.e. sufficient registrations).

3. Local (clinic site) planning, logistics, etc.

I understand completely...........Just giving you a hard time :ani_victory:

As a matter of fact, I think you told me the very same thing, last year.

Get all these met and maybe you could be tempted to come to Australia?

Hmmmmmm...

"West Coast Rev Clinic Down Under" now that's got a ring to it.

Could be just wishful thinking but hey, 2 months ago I'd never even heard of Revolution now I fly one!

I've got it JB, when (not if) you come to Australia it would be "The iQuad Inverted Tour".

We will fly all our routines upsidedown beginning and ending in an inverted hover at the top of the window.

I'm not sure if there is a committee, although festivals often have one... A kind word to the organizers wouldn't hurt. :)

More than likely, there's a contact link on their web site.

    • Help With Choosing a Revolution
      By joedc831
      I'm well-experienced with dual-line stunt kites, and am going to buy a Revolution quad.  In doing research, I'd like a better understanding of the differences I would experience between the Revolution EXP on the low-end, and the B-Series on the high-end.  I'm not really worried about the price difference, and I'd like to own a kite that can keep up as my skills continue to improve.  But I also don't want to waste money on a more expensive kite like the B-series or New York Minute if the flight characteristics are only marginally different than the EXP.  So in short, what makes the B-series a better kite than the EXP?  Also, does the mid-vent have the widest wind range?
    • Rev travel tote
      By Bongo
      I'm coming from a 2-line airfoil (seattle air gear) background, which I love, and it's super-packable for traveling.
      I saw some nice 4-line Revolution recently, and I'm considering getting the travel version of a 1.5, as I'd like to be able to fit it in a carry-on case.
      Are there any downsides to this travel tote model?  I presume it's slightly heavier, but will it make a huge difference?
    • New Rev Flyer
      By Hangar Pilot
      I purchased a Rev 1.5 SLE back some time ago. There is a long list of thinks that kept me from flying it. But glad to say I'm leaving for the beach in the morning and it's packed in the truck.
      I've watched all of the training videos on the Rev kites but I don't seem to find anything about the first launch for a beginner quad person.
      So my first question is do you try to start inverted with the handles staked like the gentleman shows in the line management video and make the kite roll over, or set it in the upright position with the top leaning back to keep it on the ground?
      My second question is how do you know that you have the correct setup at the handle? Example how do you know you have the line length at the top and bottom correct? Is there a neutral position?
      Thanks in advance for your help!
    • Wakefield NE. Kite Festival and Hot Air Balloon Festival
      By mywindstuff
      My Wind Stuff will be hosting the first Family Kite Festival in Wakefield NE at the High School at 802 Highland St. , October 16,17,18 . We will start a short demo show on Friday afternoon up until the Hot Air Balloons launch around 4:30 then continue all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday. We will be displaying many large promotional pieces as well as teaching dual line and quad line basics . We always have a large selection of kites on hand for sale as well as offering kite repairs for most brands. Their should be plenty of space to fly even during the balloon launches in separate fields. The community ìs having a parade , craftshow , car show , 5k run/walk . Wakefield is not too far from Souix City Iowa or Omaha Nebraska , this is a great opportunity to come and show off your kites and flying talents to a community that sees very little kite flying. Let's help inspire these folks to the great world of Kiting! Free admission !Contact Curt at My Wind Stuff 785-483-1309 for additional information.
    • Viva la Colombia!
      By mystainedskin
      I have been quite busy....and embarrassed I have not done more than basic shares with this yet. Stay tuned.
      I had 3 short runs while there. A few really challenging moments with soooooooooo many kites in the air. Big lifters...a gajillion homemade kites flying on anything that could be used for flying line. Quite an experience... Even met some kite fliers from KiteLife that I didn't know about...from the Caribbean. Do the search.....you will be very impressed at some kite flying in different parts of the world...the competition and goals of competing are very different from what we see
      The clear box kite and crew are the ones I am referring to..they made this kite, along with some of the night kites in the hotel lobby. no test...launch it baby...let's see what it does! Awesome! I was so stoked to have a camera in the air
      Until then..... Enjoy some KAP photos from Cartagena, Colombia
