i was you flying today i did only pick my rev 1 with because i just wanted to try it, since i have never flow it before.

i did find it mush harder to keep reverse hover and reverse flight, compared to b-series with have no problem with.

wind about: 6-10 mph
frame: SLE LE and 4 wrap
Line: 100 feet 90 pound

I wouldn't say harder, just different!! The Rev 1 is cut a bit differently than the "B" series 1.5 and is subject to "flipping" a wing over in reverse! And it is a slower sail overall, but all the same control inputs are used in flying it, just a bit more delicately!! I have both styles, I set up the Rev1 when I just want a relaxing fly, easy on the crazy tricks and turns! Just a more soothing fly!! :ani_victory:

Honestly, I'd suggest searching for or posting the same question on the Rev forum...


Lots of discussions already in the archive there, should have all the info you're looking for. :)
