Hi 

I hope I'm not wasting time and space with my questions..but I suspect other newbie but wanna be quad flyers have read the opposing theories and rumors ..and would appreciate your clarification.

so..

I want to get my first quad ..your prices make me think this is possible.

But. so much conflicting advise..warnings to only buy rev

The others are cheap ..cheap parts & build,  that chinese fall apart or being poorly made are  hard to fly etc

I've been warned rev  exp is better - even as their cheap entry level is consistently a good purchase. With warnings that these   chinese brands will end  up in sad regret.

This seems rather extreme.  Is it .truth or a reflection of a  'cult" of  rev owners/fliers dismissing any other quad??

So I end up not getting. Quad...while I wait to get some $

Then I see your listing(s) and prices..and now I really am not sure ..

Would you suggest the exp over the others?

The $75 small yellow is tempting... But with the exp at $125 

So back to uninformed indecision..

I have never even seen let alone  tried any. Non rev quad.

 My decision would really be a wild guess.

Can you help me. What's your informed suggestion?

Should I wait. for $ for rev. Or buy the lowest cost small yellow

Normal pre sale questions:

Will they fly about the same and last about as long?

Are replacement parts easily available for non Rev brands..

 

With 10 models  / 4 brands for sale...what do you suggest

Thanks

pretty good guess --> reflection of a  'cult" of  rev owners/fliers dismissing any other quad.

I hesitated to respond but you asked a very pointed question.. FWIW< any of these offerings are fine to learn on.. As for replacement parts, the New Revs aren't interchangeable with the older frames. The rods and caps have all been changed to make them almost exclusively incompatible with Revs from a few years ago..

I have one of the Hengda Tomahawk Vented kites. (like in the second picture in the first post with vents) and have had it for a few years now with no issues. I did replace the lineset that came with it with better quality lines but the kite itself is fine.

The off brands like Hengda, Albatross and similar are fairly comparable to the EXP. Factory QC may not be as good, but a used kite has already taken that risk and the owner should be able to give you info on any issues encountered.

For your first quad kite, I recommend you buy used and these have already been checked and probably tuned by Scott ( @mystainedskin ) IF that is true, then the factory QC is not an issue as the kite has passed the test of a seasoned quad flier.

If it's truly your first quad, also don't fly alone. You'll be amazed at how much you can learn just being around other quad fliers. Good luck..

thanks so much for helping me figure out that - I will be able to get a quad this year!!

after following around a quad flier duo -  I learned so much on my two line(s) that I bet I would still be spending more time untangling line than flying still ..which was the 1st 3 years...then watching the quads - and reading and practicing I had some real breakthroughs last summer - and  was rewarded with being permitted to fly their quads..and ..well I suppose you all know ..it was ..profound. 

So thanks again for the guidance...

I have inspected the kites for listings. No tuning or flying experience with any of the brands. Simply selling for someone.

My thoughts on the subject....

They are all quads. They all fly similar. They all react similar. Some better than others...yes. For a first kite without a big bite....could be a low cost choice.

As you can see...1 kite is never enough and you progress into what fits you and your desires as you learn. I would recommend sticking with the 1.5 sized sails. The yellow and black is a smaller sail and is going too react and fly different than the 1.5 sized versions.

Just cause it says Revolution on it, does not always mean "Quality". There have been many issues from that house also....

Willing to take $200 for the Revolution SuperSonic?

FYI. I don't know your level of experience, but if this is going to be your first quad-line kite don't buy the SS. It is fast and unforgiving. Not the kite to learn with. Not impossible but it will definitely cause a great deal of grief to anyone just starting to fly quad. If you have experience with quads and have mastered basic control you're going to love it.

Go for it, then. I had 3 of them at one point. When you get the urge for something different it definitely fits the bill. Has a few moves that you will never be able to get the 1.5 to do. Loads of fun, just be careful the first time around and make sure the wind is relatively slow so no one gets hurt. The SS is a hoot and a holler!

The SS is a rocket ship in higher winds and is a blast to fly. It’s a good quad to have if you enjoy flying really fast. Like makatakam said get used to it in lower winds and you will really enjoy the way it performs. One of my sons favorite Kites to fly. He’s 15 now started flying it a couple years ago.

      Join us for two very full days of quad instruction on the beautiful shores of St Annes Beach in Lytham St Annes U.K. on Aug 30-31, 2018 immediately before the St Annes International Kite Festival!
      Instructors will be John Barresi (www.johnbarresi.com) and Josh Mitcheson.


      DAY ONE - AUG 30
      Quad 101: We'll be covering everything from absolute basics (pure beginner) all the way up through advanced techniques as well as the "weird stuff" like dogstake, short line catch and throw or any other quad line flight styles that may be of interest to the students, this first day is primarily focused on a full range of individual skills.

      DAY TWO - AUG 31
      Team Flying: Actually easier than it looks, team flying is proven to help your skills along much quicker while having a ton of fun at the same time in a very forgiving social environment - after having done 100+ clinics, it's very very rare that fliers didn't find a fair measure of success on the line with others - come on, pave the way for participating in a mega fly at your next event.

      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Djinn, Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Polo, etc), designs like Fulcrum are also welcome - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - this clinic is not brand-centric, the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win at your own game.

      If you want to be able to try team flying, 40 metre / 120 ft lines (Spectra or Skybond material) are strongly suggested as the international team standard.

      Registration is $135 (approx £100) per person and includes full access to the clinic on both days (Thu 10a-4p / Fri 10a-3p)... Please note, there are ONLY 20 SPOTS available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.
      RSVP'd:
      @Flintfootfilly (Sarah) @FlyingHigh (Gavin) @Simon Cooper @Steve SLF Caroline S. @Neil Lover @GRAHAM MARSHALL @Ferrit (Peter) @Mickp14 (Mick) @Stephen Sunderland @JWharton ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Thursday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, lots of little details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience.

      There will also be an add on indoor clinic on Wednesday Aug 29 from 4:30p to 9:30p, registration is $30 (15 spaces available) and covers 5 HOURS of indoor access and instruction.

      If you want some homework, you might also check out the tutorials available on KiteLife at http://learnkites.com/ and Kite Forge at http://kiteforge.com/help, can’t be too prepared!

      I recently finished my first kite build, and I wanted to throw a public "Thank You!!" out to my kite making mentor:  Elliot Shook, who allowed me to follow in his design footsteps, gave me guidance, techniques and encouragement.  Without Elliot's generous mentorship this kite would likely still be flying only in my imagination.   Holding my kite up to Elliot's work I still have a bit of fine tuning to do, but hey I still need an xtra vent, so I will get better.  Elliot's eye for detail and build quality is definitely masterpiece material.  
      I finished it just in time to take it to JB's OBX quad clinic and got to show it off to Elliot and all my best flying buddies.  When the wind let up a bit (should have made an xtra vent for that weekend!!) I got to put it up with the sun behind it and it sparkled in the sun beautifully, and seemed to fly just fine.  Nothing like seeing your own work flying and keeping up with the others in the sky.   it flew just like a Shook should fly: smooth and un-phased by the bumps, in higher winds than I should have put it up in, and pretty as a can be. 
      Also, Thank you to all of the folks who have pulled out kites to let me examine and photograph them, lent me your sails, and answered my questions about sewing and techniques - many of you were generous with your time and knowledge.  The generosity of this community never fails to warm my heart and add lift to my efforts.  To anyone thinking about taking the sewing plunge....I encourage it.  I learned a ton, and kite making materials are not forgiving, so give yourself plenty of practice scraps and time.  Oh the joy of flying a kite I built can not be described adequately. 
      Thanks Again Elliot!

      Could st. Volbenk be a patron saint of kite flyers? See the whole KAP session and learn more about the church and the saint on our KAP website!
