Try a New Tech Spirit. They're half the price of a Rev, and you can learn the basics on it. One good thing about the Spirit, it's rare that it will land in a position that it can't take off from. I enjoyed mine, and I only broke it once trying to fly in too much wind. That's why I have a vented Rev now, as well. I've resisted getting into Revs full on like a lot of these people, but I undertstand the appeal.
I wonder if you've considered a single line glider kite, as well. They're a little more fun than a single line that you just sit there and fly. Plus, you can fly them almost anywhere. I fly my glider kites using a wand, which would work well for someone who doesn't want to move too much.
I've done a lot of searching an although I can find some info and listings for the New Tech Spirit Quad, most seem to be discontinued or older sites. I did find something called the Volksquad (people's quad) on the New Tech website and was wondering if this has replaced the spirit? Or are they different companies altogether?? Here's a link to the Volksquad: http://newtechkites....quad-(Twilight)
I'd really be interested in hearing what you think.
this should fill you in on the whole glider thing...
I fly my glider in my living room when I need a quick fix !
Oh my gosh...I can't wait to read through this! Flying in your LR! How chill is THAT!!!
Thanks for the link, I'll read all through it.
