Looks like a roll of high quality printed fabric with a quad wing blurred in the background.  I would like to be put on the reservation list for a numbered signed sail if possible.  Please & thanks, SHBKF

Sadly thats all I have to offer at the moment, but the good news is what I hope will be the final Djinn prototype builds (small adjustments and the official panel arrangement) will be done very soon and starting their aggressive rounds of test flying 2 to 3 weeks from now - if I like what I feel in the air I'll try and get some video online. :)

I'm hoping for Djinns to be available by April at the latest, fingers crossed!

:clap; *squeal* :clap;

The true test of any kite's performance capability is in Midwest winds. Everyone knows that! So, bring it.

That's right.  Red, white and black are for you.  I get the red, white, black and grey.

      Helping my dad sell kites to reduce his collection. Most are new or nearly new.
      This is the revised list after several were sold. Most are not priced but will work on any you are interested in. Shipping is extra. The Prism Nexus is $180 (pictured). 
      If there are typos in my table below,  the photos of the original hand-written list are correct. (see original posting by searching "2 dozen")
      (Note: several people have reported they are very happy with what I sold them over the last month since the original post. If there is a problem I will fix it.)

      So I have had my Rev Reflex RX for 3 days and the wind has been ok to fly every day, I'm down in Plymouth in the UK and we never struggle for a sea breeze and living 500m from a huge set of public football pitches on top of a hill it is one of the best flying sites for miles. 
      The first day the wind was a little light and variable with a 30 deg shift in direction which made my first experience of flying a quad a "challenge" to say the least only ever flying dual line stunt kites before it was mentally very challenging to get the inputs of the quad correct and when things happened quickly my instincts as a duel liner took over often ending on me "landing" unexpectedly, but as the evening wore on I started to get used to the feel of the extra bottom lines and could fly a box and figure 8 to some fashion.
       The second evening the wind was a little stronger and from a steady direction and I could really get the kite moving concentrating firstly on the box shapes then figure 8's the controls started to feel normal but not instinctive and I have to analyze what I did and how it affected the movement of the kite. Next was the hover which is much much harder than all the YouTube videos make it look! I had little success with it I feel that I must be over controlling the kite as it wants to race forwards but I can back it down very slowly but can't find the "bite" when it stops and wants to hover yet. 
      Day 3 and after an hour of single line flying with my son the wind felt good and steady so I set up the Rev again and really had a great time oh god this is fun to fly really felt comfortable in flying it around hovers did start to come together, I found them much easier at the top and bottom of the wind window, on the edges it veered off sliding and in the centre it was like a caged animal trying to race upwards! I felt comfatable enough to try an inverted stop and managed it a few times nicely but I lost my nerve and was pulling up high and about 2m above the ground, it did stop wonderfully but again my brain started to hurt working out inputs of the kite flying backward and upsidedown! but fun none the less.
      Sorry to of gone on but I'm still buzzing from flying and had to tell someone... well anyone...you lot....
      Matt
