  3. Yesterday
  4. Most all are based on the same wing shape but there are differences that stand out. The B-series is probably the most versatile kite Rev Made. It included a whole extra frame and different venting options. When Rev patent expired, they realized there was still a patent on their springs so every kite from Rev was suddenly equipped with springs. Now, Other manufacturers brought different things to the table for the most part based on feedback that Rev all but ignored over the years. Bazzer started lashing the uprights solidly locking them to the leading edge with none of the play of th

  6. Not insinuated at all....as shipping is NOT cheap. It....shipping...has been a deal breaker before....especially out of country....then there's currency exchange....ouch!!! In this case the shipping would have been about the same as going there in person....bus, ferry, sky train. I live in a fairly rural area and travelling by public transit to and through the city during a pandemic doesn't appeal to me at all. During "normal" times this would have been a no brainer, as I used to go to the city quite regularly and worked in the city from time to time. I could have driven there but the fer
  7. Following the trail of broken links and it looks like the Manual was ultimately removed.. Reach out to @John Barresi He may have what you are looking for.

Link in English (Google Translate): https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&u=https://kinetic-art-kites.jimdofree.com/deutsch/onlineshop/vierleiner/ The pictures of the manual/assembly instruction give a quite clear idea of the details of the design.

  14. Thank you for this genuinely interesting story though it obviously got a very sad element. Initially I was a bit confused how a 40 inch kite could lift a man before I realized that the unit was foot and that the kite was large (and the lifting surface was large squared). Welcome to the forum!

  17. cerfvoliste. Much thanks for the book information. A lot of work and time was put into it that book with good diagrams also. Though it was some 25 years ago, the foundational steps are still very relevant, for a novice like me. A big Thank You to Bill/Kim Taylor for taking the time and consideration to pen it down for future kite flyers like myself. Appreciate it greatly.
  18. Happy to help, all the best

  20. Day 5, added rods and bridle. Ready for a test flight. The horizontal bridle is a bit tight pre bending the frame. That will be adjusted on test flight. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  26. Heh-heh. Took the words right out of my mouth, Edmond. Although I was a little reluctant to say it (till now I guess!). John pushes the limits in seeking performance. We are beneficiaries of that. But some/many of us are quite content to get the peace and serenity offered by some of our older kites. (And that is not to say that the two approaches are mutually exclusive, either.) Out of this discussion I have learned that perhaps I should pay more attention to the idea of the two separate wings, or 'engines', that the Rev 1 has, or has more of. Never thought of it that way. But,
