Radio Equipment for Team Flying

Recently I had the pleasure of attending the first annual Rev Team Boot Camp led by Team iQuad.  One of the requirements for this clinic was a radio.  These radios allow a team to share common music, ease the strain on the team leaders voice, and greatly improve call clarity across the team.  This article’s […]

World Sport Kite Championships (WSKC 2012)

I arrived a day behind everyone else in France. My flight out of Portland boarded smoothly. We taxied out to runway, turned into the wind and the pilot hit the gas. But halfway down the runway, as the nose started to leave the ground, he hit the brakes hard. Red warning light!! Twenty years of […]

Issue 74: A Novice Position in the Mega Grid

100 Rev kites in a 10 x 10 stable grid formation…. That was the plan, but it came up 36 kites shy yet still broke the world record of 55 by a not-so-shabby margin of nine kites. There is no doubt that the current record of 64 will be broken and to do that Rev […]

Issue 73: Kites… Life.

One of my primary areas of focus and interest over the past 2-3 years is the obvious lack of cohesion and growth in the North American dual line kiting community, evidenced by less competitors, fewer dual line teams at World Championships and even fewer full time dual line teams in North America… Now bear in […]

Issue 73: REVisions: What to Expect in a Mega-Mega Fly

Here I sit, with really only one thing on my mind, much like it has been for weeks. No, it’s not a new Rev.

In 1980 Mix McGraw put together a four person team, flying stacks of twelve Rainbow Kites at the Marina Green in […]
