    1.5 SLE + SUL - Train order?

    Hi All, Am planning on stacking 8 REV 1.5 SUL. Is there any photo or drawings to show the actual stacking lines? I understand it is 5 points to connect the train. Since the new SULs come with 3 wrap LE, I will be using these for the first 4 - 5 kites, will this be strong enough? Appreciate any inputs. Patrick

    airWave zero

    Just received my Airwave and Aerobe Had fun with the Aerobe today, flown outdoor on indoor settings as there was no wind at all. Its my first time flying such a kite....what a refreshing feeling...single liner doing slow over the head, turning at the end of the line only to glide back! Very fun kite indeed. Airwave, still yet to take it out for some airtime.

    Dihedral Active Bridle

    Best if you could first do the dihedral, then add an activator leg to make it tetrahedral, feel for yourself the results, if there's a diff. I may have slipped up in my construction, hence the little or no difference. Cuurently am busy or would have made another just for kicks!

    Dihedral Active Bridle

    I've tried both, maybe its just me, but can't really tell the difference between the tri and di.

    Dihedral Active Bridle

    Yup, I did the dihedral active bridle qas explaqined by Andy's website. Superb modification, made the tracking that much better and the tricking was also not compromise, in fact much better! I constructed the whole bridle from scratch, but I added an out-haul, just for kicks to seee if I tweaked it, there;s any diff....well it does;)

    Intermediate Kite

    Hi, I know this thread's been more than 2 years! But I just started flying my Mohawk UL. Compared to another kite I have, the Mohawk seems reluctant to Fade or Flic Flac. Anyone here knows if a weight may be added to make this easier? Cheers. Patrick

    Tail weight`s

    Yes indeed, I added a small weight by using a spare spar to spar connector, slot it into the spine, into the other hole of the connector, I added a small solid steel rod. I can easily change the weight by using different length steel rods on the fly;)

    clock turns and extended handles

    Hi All, I have a Rev 1.5. I can do the basics, no problem at all. Now attempting to do the more "deliberate and slower" moves like clock turns. Currently, it always ended up as a fast spin how is this controlled? Has it got to do with using extended handles? If so, what are the advantages of extended handles? Cheers,

    REV 1.5 (non-stock) frame

    Hi Penny, the P200 framed REV II is now one of my kites that gets the most air time! Although not as fast as stock frame, it flies on much lighter wind, hence my inclination to re-frame the 1.5:)
  15. Hi, Was thinking of changing my REV 1.5 to Skyshark frame, what would be appropriate? I've changed my REV II to P200 Skyshark, but not sure if it'll work for REV 1.5. Any inputs appreciated. Good winds, Patrick
