    • Hi all! Good news! It finally clicked!! After taking everyone's tips and advise from this thread, and JB's videos, and his in-person priceless quick tips, aaaand the in-person help and advise of the local veterans in the area (Steve & Fred!!), this weekend I got the inverted hover! I'm so so happy. haha.  I'm just about 28hours in flying time with the rev, I'm platueing and that's just fine, it's been an exhilarating and so enjoyable a time outside, flying, words can't describe it. Who woulda thought kite flying could be this much fun?! Here's a really quick clip of some of the flying I had today during our trip to the coast, courtesy of my lovely one (sorry no HD)  Enjoy. Can't wait to nail the inverted hover even better, and then I'm eager to start figuring out how the Bicycle science works. I'm actually more used to flying in lower winds, today's video clip at the beach I was flying in I am guessing 21mph+ steady winds, the gulls and pelicans couldn't even fly straight. I had to remove my seran-wrap fix for today hahaha. My midvent/3wrap/90# was pulling hard, it slid me along the soft sand several times, but what fun!! Definitely easier in stronger winds, I get to do what I think, I like. And the kite can get so much faster too, love it. Update again soon, I sincerely thank everyone that's been a part of my Rev journey thus far, I wouldn't be flying the way I am today if not for ANY of the tips big or small, long or brief, you graciously shared with me. (I'm no master yet, nowhere near the finesse needed to be a rev flyer, but looking back at a 45mins line-setup to a 4min line-setup and the control I have today, I'm so so grateful) Thank you!!   
    • A few more of these have been spotted in the wild..  @Deke Haid and @windpoacher have published either pics or video of their adventures.. Looking forward to seeing more..
    • Why don't we go to chat? you could be right, no way to know, I would keep an eagle on it though.
    • It could also be that since mine is a UL, and should be flown in lower winds, they figure not much damage could come to the leech line. 
    • Perhaps you could leave the bungie the way it is but the standard way is to loosen the leach line and slide it up or down depending on preference. That way you don't have a piece of bungie hanging down for no reason.  no I was wrong about the leach line being under the Velcro, on this kite it has a hole in the strap to go through just like yours shows. The hole just looks too low to me but maybe that's the way yours is supposed to be. Right on the bottom of the kite looks like it could be damaged on landings or something. Maybe they moved the hole up some when they designed the 2.5 I don't recall having talked to their customer service so I can't speak about that but I believe there is a number to call on the fw website. I'd be very careful about the leach line being so close to the bottom, you don't want anything to happen to that.
