The Feeling Gray set is coming along.. Sail #1 is a straight fade based on my diamonds technique. the other two sails resulted from starting two offsetting designs and mixing the halves with every other basting run.. It resulted in a pair of sails with a much less distinct transition pattern but an overall look that mimics its mate.. Basting is done.. Centers and sewing remain..
i may bet the eBay seller was raa20011. is puting on sell with omissions on description Rev sails. if you do not pay attention you will buy a Rev (like on your situation) without bridle or without frame

Clockwork (all fractions)
Bicycle rotation (static and traveling)
Reverse flight (directional control)
Tip pivot work (forward and reverse)
Slack line tricks (axel, flip flac, etc)
Flight and cornering without stalling
Use of line tension ("pulsing" and "whump")
Any team flying exercises will also incorporate more use of and training on these details than usual, to provide a good group learning environment on the topic(s).

Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Djinn, Phoenix, Freilein, Los Hermanos, etc)... If you plan on participating in the team flying exercises, you'll need to also have a quality 120' set of lines in your bag.
Registration is $150 per person ($125 for KiteLife Subscribers) and includes full access to the clinic on both days (10a-4p)... Please note, there are ONLY 16 SPOTS available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.
If you're coming, we start the "Advanced Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Saturday morning... This will NOT include the "basics" many of you are familiar with from previous 101 presentations, we're going right to the in depth flight stuff and more immediate hands on examples / training.
RSVP so far:
Hope to see you there!
This is an excellent opportunity for folks from our last stunt kite clinic to "level up" the information they absorbed in June, as well as to receive the key tips they need to perfect whatever tricks they added to their repertoire in the meantime... We will still do the "stunt kite 101" for first time attendees or those who wish to experience it again, but we'll also keep at least one master instructor available during that timeframe (either Scott Weider or Paul de Bakker) to assist folks who would rather get right to flight exercises, we'll also try to incorporate more opportunities for group example and exercises in the interest of improving the learning experience for everyone, as well as a bit more scheduling (so we all know a bit more what to expect).
