  3. I have been flying Revs since 1990 and competed quite a bit in the 90s. One of the things I found about the wobble thing is thinking too much what your hands should do. I know when I start to think about it, the Rev starts to wobble. In time, which is not long, you relax and your hands will naturally react before you have time to think about. A distraction does tend to help, such as conversing with someone while you fly. I don't know why, but that is how it goes, at least with me.

  5. I only joined in 2007 ahead of the build-up to the 2008 events. There was a long and occasionally difficult thread that I would like to think was safely archived. When I heard that there was some difficulty with the forum I did ask some questions behind the scenes and I am very relieved that that we have access again. People have moved on to other locations but I am certainly watching this one on a regular basis... Felix

  6. Yep, it's all time on the lines. You are beginning to make minute adjustments in response to what you feel instead of what you see. Once you see it, it has already happened. The control comes when you can feel what is about to happen and correct for the inconsistency in pressure before it moves the kite. Smooth wind helps dramatically, and minimizes the amount of adjustment necessary. If the wind is particularly strong and gusty it won't give you enough time, so the kite will wobble a bit. When you stop having to think about it your mind will begin making adjustments automatically and stabilit
