  1. I have been interested in this, as well, and would love to see more detailed information on how to pull this off without damaging my Rev. I'm particularly fond of this video on YouTube: Team4Fun auf Nachtflug in Oostende/Belgien 2010
  2. Saddened that the B-Series is being retired. Time to  save up for a few extra sails.

  3. Oh, Revolution doesn't get rid of me that easily! Already, I have too much invested and am enjoying this way too much. Just this past weekend, I introduced my brother's family to flying Rev and may have gotten them hooked, as well. I just want to see a little more refinement to the 38 program before I put money on it, I think. From what I'm hearing, this is still the best place for a flier to learn when one is separated from the rest of the community as much as I am. Trust me, though, I'm working on building a community here, though!
  4. Thank you everyone for weighing in on this. Your honest answers are very much appreciated. As a relatively new Rev flier, myself, I have been curious about the program. I think there is value in having a list of what to work on next, especially for me living in Montana, away from most other fliers. Right now, I know where to improve, but that list is short and sometimes we don't always know what we don't know. However, I am very surprised it appears that JB wasn't consulted. His videos have been shown time and again to be valuable to new and experienced pilots as being clear, concise
  5. I broke 3 things today: 2 spars (at the the same time) and my personal record for the number of spars broken at once! 

  6. I have done air travel with my 2 Revs more than a few times over the past few months. My personal setup is that I purchased two telescoping architect tubes, bound them together with heavy-duty rubber bands, and crossed the straps to keep them together. An extra band on one tube marks where I store my vented, as well as the telescoping length I need to maintain. Sling the whole thing over my back, and I'm off. I've even flown my Revs wearing the tubes on my back that way a time or two so that I can switch out without having to trek back to my car. I've seen reference to other fliers (doubl
  7. Just wanted to thank everyone for the assistance with the travel packing. Completely removing the frame was the piece I needed. Once I was able to package it in the blue carrier, it fit loosely with my computer bag and I was on my way. I was glad to have had it, as there was good wind at my destination, although it was also drizzling rain. I'm sure others were wondering what the heck I thought I was doing. No biggie, though. Just kept flying and dried my kite in front of the window back in the hotel room. Looked like a Rev advertisement from the outside! Again, thank you to everyone who chimed
  8. I feel that the video on setting up and breaking down your Rev is very clear. I try to follow it to the letter every time I work with my kite. What I am not clear about is how to break down to size using the travel frame. I just got through trying several configurations, but there is clearly something I'm still missing. Hopefully someone has collapsed their kite down to travel frame size and can give me more info. I have read a lot about how people travel with their kite as carry-on in architecture plan and mailing tubes, and I'm prepared to do that for my next trip, if necessary. However, I s
  9. Excellent! Thank you all for your support input. Great info. -R
  10. Apologies if I have missed this somewhere, but I'm not finding anything. I'm still in my first month, so maybe that gives me a little more allowance. So the first snow has fallen; I don't plan on letting that stop me (much) from flying, but I'm wondering if there will be a need to dry my lines after working in snow. Certainly I have seen discussion about drying your kite after flying in water, but I haven't seen any mention about the lines. I am on 90# 100' lines, LPG with the standard card winder, and I leave my handles connected (since it is my only line set... for now). Even with getting th
  11. Welcome Caco! I'm not even a month in flying and I have found the people very welcoming and insightful. My recommendation would be to read as much as you can here and watch the videos over and over, and then read some more. This will help reduce the learning curve once you have your kite in hand and get you to where you are actually flying the kite sooner. -Rabbit
  12. Glad you have seen the light. As a new Rev flier, myself, I can tell you that learning was a breeze, but given that you are so limited in quality wind days, you'd want something that is ready to go. Just be ready (and warn the wife) that once you get it to lift off, there isn't much else you are going to want to do on your vacation. -Rabbit Oh, and all hail Calvin & Hobbes!
  13. Thanks for keeping us in the loop. It was been an interesting discussion and now I'm tempted to start looking for bridges around here. Besides, I'm sure my older brother, at some point, told me to go fly a kite off a short bridge. Or something like that. -Rabbit
  14. Broke my first spar the other day. Does that mean I'm in the gang?

  15. I'm sure the label is providing added structure support, even if only a little. What surprised me most was breaking in two places instead of just one.
