CLOSED - Wanted Rev indoor

Recommended Posts

Some of the guys in IKE may have one that they can sell to you. The only guy who does indoor regularly is Steve Anderson, so the other people may want to sell theirs.

I'm sure it's been done - but the only stack of indoor kites I ever saw was when Connor used a 2 stack on AGT!

You going to use them/it inside or ??

Hey, Deke. What town do you live in? I'm in Schaumburg and there's a bunch of other flyers in the area.

I flew with IKE a couple of times last year. I'm the guy with the Rev2.

I suck at remembering people's names and faces, but I would probably remember the kite.

There was a pic of me on IKE page from around Thanksgiving fly. I was pretty good in very low wind

When you get your hands on one, I really recommend you do the mods to it. It's here on the Kitelife web site. Ads personality and control to a great wing. I'll post the link back when I can.

JB and I do this with every Indoor sail we touch! Add some LE bend, add some longer top leaders, and maybe put some vinyl caps on the bottoms of the verts. Changes the way the kite feels!

maybe is a silly question but...why Indoor is not have a bridle like a 1.5 ? is just a weight issue or are more things involved ? 


The bridle helps distribute the load. The substantially low pressure associated with zero wind means you don't need to distribute the load so much. Also, not using a bridle gives a direct connection input to reaction.

Like SR said - the bridle evens out the streeses and distributes them pretty equally over the whole frame. The Indoor never encounters that in much stress in an indoor environment with the speeds we create. However, take the Indoor outside - you had better be aware of the wind and strength! Those LE joints aren't supported by anything now, so beware of the conditions you use it in! 

PS: the rods aren't fragile, any more than most of their rods, but no bridle support means careful in what conditions you use it!

      I bought a Rev indoor, on a whim. Its Red White and Blue. In nearly new condition and it will come with a brand new set of lines, but no handles, as it didn't come to me with any.
      As Quads are my thing, I am looking for another rev, or other quad line kite WHY?? Possible PX with cash either way for the right kite.
      I am located in Cornwall UK but willing to post.

      Both activities aim for technique and reliability improvement, both can keep you occupied by analyzing/planning between the sessions, both are directly dependent on your performance, both affects an item at a distance (kind of triggering similar feelings of control), both are (mechanical and fluid dynamics) hi-tech, both can be done outdoors as well as indoors and both can make you sweat.
      The makeshift (or first iteration?) handles are there to make the line length adjustable since I didn't know what line length to use during this first indoor session. The (initial) bridle setting visible in the image made it very difficult to launch the kite first. More details in the blog entry http://kitelife.com/forum/blogs/entry/296-first-indoor-session-and-winter-activities/ .

      Found a nice little place in a nice little town to practice and learn indoor dual line. After an hour of trail and error, I started to get the hang of it. Can't wait to go back again! Here's a video of my progress today. I just felt like sharing.
