  1. He had oxygen down to 15,000 feet then he handed off the bottle to a skydiver freefalling with him.
  2. https://www.windyty.com/?48.403,-123.339,15 is my favourite spot, and it seems to zoom in a bit closer.
  3. On the ABS that is the technique that Lam uses. There are 3 holes on the reinforcement patch & the bungee goes in & out and around to form a loop that the vertical end goes through before you stretch the end cap on. The spar is locked in place in the centre of the point on the sail. I didn't get it until he showed me in person - then the light bulb went on!

    Glad to see you're still doing really nice work on those! Kelly
  5. The RNG is into "odd" little numbers - if you know what I mean!!!
  6. Now that it is officially out I wondered if there was any hands on information?
  7. Has anyone here seen or better yet flown the new Reflex? I saw a picture on Facebook but I'm interested in details of why they made these. Where do they fit in the family? Advantages? Problems? Did you have a finger in this John or are you too busy elsewhere? Curious...
  8. No, I have a small Sting that I use as a quad trainer and I have 2 or 3 two line foils for zooming around like crazy. With no sticks and nothing to break, I'm happy to hand the handles to anyone and see if I can hook them.
  9. What you seem to be missing is time on the lines. Watching someone else do it is not the same as trying it for yourself as you found out with the eagle kites - so often it is much harder than it looks... but that is where the reward is. So what's it going to be? What kite has grabbed you enough to be your first. There's a thread somewhere on here where people reminisce about their first - you never ever forget your first REAL kite! You know lots about them in your head, but now it's time to move it down to the heart and hands. Dive in the deep end and see where it takes you. We're all addicts here so we understand completely. I don't know the US scene well enough to know if there are fliers in Joplin, but if you do make contact, I'm sure you will be able to try before you buy. Good Luck and welcome to a new passion!
  10. Quit the newsletter. I see a new business in the making!
  11. There are two Rev shops out of Alberta. I've got spars from The Kite Guy in AIrdrie - good to deal with. http://www.kiteguys.ca/ There is also a shop out of Lethbrige. http://www.canadiankitecompany.com/ Both are on the net if you search. Alberta has no PST either. These shops sell other kites and supplies as well - not Rev exclusive. Kelly
