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!

      So I ran a forum search and couldn't figure this out...so here I am asking for help, lots of questions but one main idea - what is an SUL really?:
      What is the difference between an indoor quad and an SUL?  What makes an SUL different than a standard?  Can I take a standard and change/tweek some stuff and end up with a SUL sail - or is the sail itself too heavy or is the sail geometry different?  Is an SUL just an indoor flown outside when there is no wind??  
      I know that there are times when there is not enough wind to keep my standard afloat without lots of work....and that is ok.  But I keep hearing about SUL but I don't know what that really means.  Not looking for an equipment fix to the no wind issue, just trying to educate myself as to what the consensus is on terms.

      Hi all - putting up another fun raffle item as part of our fund raising efforts for the coming off season... It's almost extra special, seeing as there are no more B-Series being made and there are only 225 tickets available!

      (NOTE: prize is STD in lime combo, as pictured)
      NO subscription required to enter, you just need raffle tickets... We'll be drawing ONE winning ticket as soon as all tickets are sold for this brand new, never flown Revolution B-Series STD directly from the KiteLife prize basket - what's included?
      B-Series STD sail in lime / combo (hand-signed by JB, can personalize) OPTIONAL upgrades ($): LE tabs, Wear Strips and/or 2nd Stitch 13" handles w/ Pro leaders 2 wrap frame 3 wrap frame Kite sleeve DVD I have personally opened this package, swapped TK's pro leaders onto the handles and made sure everything is properly configured to fly well... This package is almost ready to fly - just add your even length quad lines, drive your stake into the ground, put the handles over it and walk downwind.
      Note, this is not a B-Series PRO, it's a pure factory model in custom colors but it becomes fairly "Pro-esque" if all the upgrades are done.
      Tickets are $5 each (via PayPal/Visa/MC/Discover/AmEx), 225 tickets are available, we'll use a numbered spreadsheet and ticket numbers will be issued accordingly, drawing shortly after the last ticket (#225) is sold using the same random method as our regular subscriber drawings - and we will ship anywhere in the world, all entries are welcome!

      As always, TK and I extend our deepest thanks for your support, past and current - we wouldn't be able to do what we do without you.

      A particularly light-hearted and casual routine, Lam uses a lot of dance in this performance, interacting with his SUL Rev 1.5 kite, great motion and energy.

      Everything needed to go out, and fly, this kite is in excellent condition, the sail is still crisp.
      Condition scale of this kite is a solid 8 out of 10
      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!
      The Revolution Supersonic comes complete with kite, Bag, extra rods,
      Laser Pro Gold lines 150# x 100', Stainless Steel Ultra Light 11" handles. RTF
      Skill: Intermediate To Expert

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