Custom RevoPolo by PoloKites (2/15/18)

Recommended Posts

Now listen to me, my polo-kite, go north, go north (from France) to your new home (here with me) - That's where your future lies (no, no, didn't mean to be possessive, you are perfectly free to fly with other kites as well) -  There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to to get on that yacht to cross that ghastly, terrible and dangerous deep Atlantic. 


Btw, the skills displayed in the video (in the first post and just above), it is puuurely in the kite, isn't it and will be shipped along with the kite:)?

Of course @Exult :rolleyes::lol:
If kites have a soul, I hope I have passed them my passion and it will help them to fly ;)

Congratulations, Nekoshi. I see that you are in Illinois. What area are you in? Should you need a hand, PM me and/or get on the IKE forum. This is a truly great kite. Enjoy it.

However, it does not come with lines or handles, so if you need assistance with that let us know.

Lucky you !!! There is no doubt it's a treasure to treasure. Touched my first quads today. One was mostly black with some grey and light grey coloring. Stunned at how striking a mostly black kite could be. The pull to the dark side is getting stronger and stronger.  You ya lucky flier don't have to worry about it :D. Have a BLAST!!!

Thanks so much! PMed ya. I'll be around I'm sure. I'm pretty new to flying. This one won't be flown till I've gotten a chance to learn more. I just got my first rev (an EXP) for Christmas and it's been pretty cold so haven't had but a few flights so far.

Yeah, connect with us IKE people.  I have a broken arm (4 places) right now so I'm not much good at showing anything, but maybe next month I'll be able to fly again.  Festival season will start up again soon enough.  . . . . . . typing with one hand is tiring . . .

      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.
