  1. @BobL I've flown it more than a little, but not a lot. It's always been on 50'-50# lines. In 1 or 2 mph wind you can fly without moving your feet much. If you are willing to walk it (fast walk), it will fly in nothing. Typically, I get bored of that really fast and pack it up for the day.
  2. I wasn't planning to sell it. If you have a serious interest, you can PM me The Amazing was redesigned in 2011 and is now sold in 2 versions. https://www.levelonekites.com/2line/amazing/#cc-m-product-12563846487 Original New "indoor" New "outdoor" Frame SkyShark 2pt SkyShark 2pt 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm & 6.0mm Sail Icarex and Mylar Skytex 27 + Icarex Skytex 27 + Icarex Span 2.00 m 2.15 m 2.15 m Height 1.07 m 1.09 m 1.09 m Weight 135 g 190 g 240 g Wind range ?? 0-5 kph 3-18 km/h
  3. I have very little SUL experience, but I do have a Level One Amazing that I picked up at Kite Party I ('03). How does the Amazing compare to the kites already discussed?

  5. While you're dumpster diving for that beat up L'Atelier, keep an eye out for a "fixer-upper" Gemini or Deep Space for me! 🤞
  6. Justify?? I'm confused.... 🤣😂🤣😂
  7. Probably "Old School" isn't exactly the right term, but I couldn't think of a better one. There are lots of really good kite plans available now for "French Style" or "Polyvalent" kites. I was wondering if there was something leaning more towards the Benson Deep Space and Aerostar Sano SS end of the pool. Both of those examples are more "transitional", I suppose. (200x rather than 199x age) What I'm looking for is: more bias towards pretty flat spins, and less emphasis on roll-up tricks gently curved leading edges rather than very straight ones slightly lower aspect ratio Do you know of anything like that you would consider a very good performing plan?
  8. Yes, I was talking about your drawing. I suspected that the drawing was not how the kite was cut, but figured it didn't hurt to confirm.
  9. The typical rev-style sail has a curved LE pocket as sown (i.e. flat pattern). That's not to say a straight LE won't work, it's just not how most are designed.
  10. OK. I went back, looked at your design, and understand what you mean now. Makes complete sense when you think about it. I just didn't think about it until you pointed it out! Is the leading edge on yours dead-straight like it's shown in the illustration? Or is the picture "not to scale" for simplicity?
  11. Can you elaborate a little on this? Is it because there is no mesh in the "vents"?

    Well, what I’ve read about isn’t considered normal buzz from the trailing edge. Here is a post by JB. Several others have similar experiences if you read down in that thread: NYM Discussion I was considering buying one and that’s why I was curious if the issue was resolved in production as time went on.

    There were lots of complaints of buzzing / vibration in the NYM sails when it came out. It's been a few years, has Rev resolved this in newer kites?
  14. Just wanted to follow up. I was able to trade for a Sky Sport ATM by Lam. I've only had about an hour of flying time, and the wind was at the top of, or above, the range for a standard, but I think I'm really going to like it. Thanks RobB for the suggestion. It seams to be a little finicky to fade, but it locks into a turtle like nothing else I've flown. I wonder if a tad less spine weight might balance it better, but I'll fly it as it is for a while before experimenting.
