  2. That's because active pilots don't generally sell their gear. It happens sometimes, which is what gets posted here. Most sales of good gear are people getting out of flying and want it to go where it will be used, but only after trying to get it to people they personally know who want to fly. When they are posted they are often snapped up quickly. Often it is easier to find listings on social media, local sales boards like Craigslist, and general sites like eBay, from people who inherent a bunch of good kites and don't know what else to do with them. Often they sell them as a group, like a bundle of 15 kites from the 1980s or 1990s with minimal description or photos. There's also people who only flew once and gave up, with a huge range of gear quality.

  9. The way that spin is presented in Level 3 will always cause you to lose some altitude, especially out on the edge of the window as in that Level 3 pattern. It's presented as being just wrist motion, but there's got to be some arm motion (i.e. "bicycle") to really keep the spin in place. Just do that. The only way that spin works as presented is if you really snap it hard, let the kite float through the spin, and catch it when you're ready to stop. That will work, and you can get good at it, but it's based more on hope than control. I prefer to learn the control.
  10. I have enough left to rebuild the leading edge. I'm not going to put them in a kite again while I'm flying over asphalt or around immovable objects. With the B-Pro being out of commission, it has forced me to learn to fly the MV Djinn in lower winds. Lemonade!

  14. I appreciate your concern for safety and your efforts to understand the kiteflying culture in your area before diving in. Compared to the local kites, a dual line foil may seem like a massive target, but compared to framed dual lines, they are not. Given your local culture though, I understand why you would want to try something perhaps smaller and less expensive to start with. The principle behind how a fighter kite works and how it can do all that with a single line is that the kite itself is inherently unstable. Most single line kites are designed to be stable, so once the flier puts the kite in the air it stays there. However, fighter kites are not like this. They tend to want to spin or turn. This is especially true when the line is being let out. But, when the line is pulled in and the kite is being pulled on, the kite will fly in a straight line in the direction it is pointing. So, the trick to controlling the kite is knowing when to let line out and when to pull on the line. This is definitely easier said than done. As I said previously, smaller kites tend to move faster, so if you build a smaller version of your local fighter kites, just know that it could be even harder to learn how to control it. Once again, good luck.
  15. Because I don't want to do it experimentally. Or if I do I want to have a prediction first. But mostly I like physics.
  16. Your value of the history is all the matters, fly that thing to within an inch of its life! Materials and techniques have vastly improved since intro, when you've worn this one out, then the next will seem like a fantasy come true. Dont wait get out and spank it ASAP
  17. Do you still have a Sea Devil for sale?

  21. NASA have a few pages of examples you can work through. https://www.grc.nasa.gov/www/k-12/airplane/shortk.html
  22. Hi All, Thank you for the invite. I am just a newbie to the Rev family but i love kiting my whole life! Since I wanted to learn a trick kite (quad) I have searched a lot on the internet and read quite a few forums. After this research I was convinced to buy a official revolution kite. I really love it! difficult but I am will master it someday. kind regards, Ruben
  23. Hello, I have old Nirvana std, it was fully unconstructed for some repair works, now I need to construct it back, where I can get technical painting or something else with dimensions to know stoppers positions, for that kite would be in right tension?
  24. Thank you for all your responses. Your help is much appreciated.
