I'm finally in here at the forums. We bought this EXP for my wife around 15 to 20 years ago, and both of us did miserable on our first attempts to fly it. It sat untouched ever since until just recently, when I decided to try it again after watching some of the tutorials on line. So far, I've flown it a couple of times, and am starting to get the hang of controlling it. Despite my novice quad skills and our Tucson hardpack, I've managed to not bust it in my learning curve.
I did improve the flying characteristics quite a bit on the second attempt by tightening up the old, tired shock cords holding the sail taut. I'll likely replace them soon. Elastic doesn't tend to age well here in the hot, dry Sonoran desert.
Anyway, once I have the hang of flying it, my wife might just try to learn again, at which time I think I'll start shopping for my own Rev.
