  6. I flew Rev 1 until 2006 when I switched to the 1.5 and never went back - it all comes down to personal preference, but the "V point" is much higher on a Rev 1 than it is on a 1.5 giving the smaller kite a bigger belly (true center sail where the logo is). When the belly is really small like that, there isn't much of a central engine so the R and L wings tend to act more like independent engines behind the leading edge, with the proportionately bigger belly on the 1.5 it creates more of a central engine (if tuned right) and less competition between each wing. Again, it really depends

  11. And there are no rules. It's an organic, fluid thing - like the dance we're doing now.
  12. Not so much a problem, I'm just stirring the pot. Recognizing the kites would be a relevant topic for sure, I just didn't get that out of the lead post so I was kind of waiting for the "hit", but there it is. ✌️
  13. Is this essentially a "thinking out loud" blog post, or something relevant for other readers? Not being snide at all, I feel for ya, just playing the role of a moderator... Some co-relevancy or insight is usually hoped for, otherwise it might make a good blog post (free to set up your own right here on the forum). You've been here long enough to know my heart in general I think, hope the intent comes across well enough. 😇

  17. Celebrate your butt off, you earned it. 😘
  18. Real thanks to everyone who looks out for me and helps shepherd me on the right road when I'm too daft to see. 😘
  19. The first drawing with @Mike Klaiberis actually correct... I just mistakenly posted last drawing's screenshot (amidst others on my desktop) in my rush to complete the drawing, then got lost in all the ensuing confusion. The last drawing, the line spool for Tim on 12/15/20: The current drawing, Djinn HV for Mike on 2/10/21: Again I deeply apologize for my ineptitude, will amend the winner announcement accordingly and make arrangements with @Mike Klaiberfor shipping... At least the first draw was actually correct, and it was just my confusion that threw everythin
  20. Oh ho! I see now.... Gimme a second to explain all in the next post.
  21. Oh shoot, you're right, good catch @Bunduki Vlieger and the subscriber terms clearly dictate a subscriber cannot win twice in a row, I didn't even remember that. Obviously it's not "automatic" in the strictest sense, it still requires an acute operator on this end to remember such things. Normal process when a winning number is ineligible is to draw randomly again, not to work down the first list. Stand by. 😚
  22. Alright folks, it's time for me to eat a little crow. I must express my deepest apologies for an error on my part when doing the drawing last night and literally (somehow) mis-reading the winning number on the list... It was an odd day but I'll forgo excuses to simply issue an official correction (after speaking with Mike beforehand to clear the air) and announce the correct winner, subscriber #1359 - this kite is going home with @Tim Grosse. Those of you who have been here long enough know that I work to try and be as humble as possible in these things, and to use (even mediate) as
