Revolution Supersonic RTF
Agility With A Little Less Pull!
The lighter, more forgiving of the Speed Series, the Supersonic is on par with the Shockwave in speed, agility, precision, and all around outstanding performance. With somewhat reduced pull and easier maneuverability, the Supersonic can readily contend with all wind conditions. The 90" wingspan (7 1/2 feet) and overall weight of only 10 ounces the SuperSonic can perform in a wind range of 4 to 20 mph.
The speed is awesome, the Supersonic has been clocked flying over 70 mph maintaining total controllability and flies in reverse as fast as the 1.5 SLE flies forwards!
If you are a speed enthusiast with great wind conditions and the ultimate thirst for speed, the Supersonic will quench your thirst and give you back some change!

I'm getting out of kiting, so there will be more kites, and goodies to come, need funds for a recumbent tadpole trike.
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?
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?
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!
