  1. Happy new year A picture form my last flight of 2017 (21. December) . Looking forward to many many more flights this year
  2. I'm definitely not implying that you only should use this Club 38 thing. I, as many others, have watched (again and again) JB's videos and learned a lot from them. But it was nice to have a sort of "script" to follow. Besides the people on the club 38 Facebook site is as friendly as you guys, so it's a nice place to be and it's nice to get suggestions on how to improving based on your videos. As a lony flier I have no idea what moves are called. Is there a place where I can read about the names? Anyway just wanted to throw Club 38 in, as a suggestion of one possible source of help on the basic.
  3. It might not be popular to mention here, but I learned a lot by joining the 'club 38' on Facebook. It teaches you the basic skilles and build on them as you go through the program. I liked that it gave me a purpose when flying, and something specific to practice. Of cause mixed with lot of 'normal' flying.
  4. I don't like flying it in more then around 6 m/s. It might be able to fly in more, but the line is singing pretty good and it feels like you could potentially brake something. Don't know if you actually will brake anything though. Also I don't like to much pull on my revs for some reason. I ended up buying a Reflex Spider for more wind then that. I also like that one a lot
  5. I recently started out with the Classic, you get both worlds with it, both the Reflex system and you can fly it without. Truth being told, I can't feel much difference with or without the Reflex regarding the response from the kite. What I like about the Reflex is that it flies much better and more stable at the edge of the window. It also have a little less tendency to bow tight when flying reverse, but it's just a question of learning to feel the kite. I mostly fly on short lines. On 50 feet lines I really like the Reflex, as it gives me a noticeable larger and more controllable window. On my 30 feet lines I exclusive fly it without the reflex, because I like to mix in some catch and throw. As said, other then at the edges of the window, I don't fell much difference with or without the Reflex. That might be because of my inexperienced though. Anyway, I really like my Classic
  6. Very cool and informative video. Especially like the tip to avoid slicing your fingers And of course yet another reason to regret that I first picked kite flying up after the Danish clinic was fully booked.
  7. Thanks for the explanation [emoji4] Now I have something to work on [emoji4] You say it's also possible with the reflex springs. Do you have any more info on how to do this?
  8. Ups, think I forgot the link to the video. Added now. moderator note. Embedded the link for you.
  9. Had a little fun with catch and throw on my classic yesterday. It's a good way to keep warm https://youtu.be/2cGv0GEcNl0
  10. Thanks for the quick response John It's working again
  11. I can't log in through the app or tapatalk anymore. Is it me and what can I do?
  12. Just got home from the first flights with my new rev. There wasn't must wind and a lot of active air, so not great kite weather (it was inland). But so far I like it. Looking forward to some more wind and hopefully to get some good beach time on it soon. Just want to say thank you to you guys for all the help and advice. It's much appreciated
  13. Thanks guys. It should be here tomorrow. Really looking forward to trying it.
  14. This one https://www.kiteworld.co.uk/acatalog/Revolution-1-5-Reflex-Classic-.html#SID=78 Sorry, I'm very new to Rev kites and don't have the terminology quite down yet.
  15. Wow. Just read this tread https://kitelife.com/forum/index.php?/topic/7717-B-Series-...-Reflex-...-B-flex and now I almost feel bad having ordered a Classic Reflex!
  16. Just out of curiosity Edmond. What modifications can I make to the Mojo to make it fly better? I still think it's a great learning tool, as it really can take a beating without snapping something. The leading edge allows for some really really hard hits, but at the same time, this come with a sacrifice, and hope to get more precise control with the Rev.
  17. Thanks guys. I'm hoping it will get here within a week, and looking forward to getting to know it and see what I think of it both with and without the springs. A huge thanks to all of you for helping me begin the journey. This is a great forum and I'm learning a lot, reading the older posts here.
  18. Thanks for the advice, but I have already ordered the Classic Reflex, so will just have to see how it is. Can't be any worse then my Mojo
  19. Thank you for your answers guys Is there any spar parts I should ordre with the kite. What will typically brake?
  20. So, if you had to choose between these two, which would you pick? https://www.kiteworld.co.uk/acatalog/Revolution-1-5-Reflex-Classic-.html#SID=78 https://www.kiteworld.co.uk/acatalog/Revolution-Kites---Rev-1.5-Reflex-RX.html#SID=78 The Reflex Classic comes with "standard" vertical spars in the package, so I would have the opportunity to both go Reflex og non-reflex right away. The Reflex RX seems to have better wear and stress reinforcement, which would seem to be a plus.
