  16. Hey Babe.How are ya No need for concerns darling.Ther kewl.A real pleasure to fly.The waves would be my pick of the deal they have atmAlthough i would probably dream up some design of my own and go the whole hog. If asked to discribe them in a word SMOOOOOOTH They are very smooth in flight.Must be some wind factor drag what ya ma call it happening,but ther silky smooth and realy easy to fly. Have a great KP8 Babe,give Dave and everyone a big kiss for me.Take loadsa pictures Jynx. BRIAN... I may have a telephone bid at the auction,,,,lol
  17. Make it three and have one for me Happy Birthday BRIAN...
  18. No Video sorry,,,,never crossed our minds realy and it was a wonderfull winters day on the beech.A spot of Camera work would have been a great idea. One thing that keeps niggling me about the Printed Revs and would compare apples for apples against the ZEN WHY not make the printeds available as a REV 1 size.Like the ZEN.That would be very intresting also. The deal thats on the 1.5 printeds atm.Makes it very tempting in its own right.A ltd Edition masterpiece,for SLE money.Then some extras and free postage. Thanks for the appreciation btw..... BRIAN...
  19. We had one of the New Ltd Edition printed Revs on the Beech yesteday i ideal conditions for it.Also ideal to realy try and see if its the low wind kite of choice or does the B Series still get the vote for us. The kite look kewl btw in the waves Patern.Does have a couple of issues for me though and its not the print,design,or any quality issues at all.I wont mention them,its a private joke between team mates and i think the kites owner needs to LIVE with it[i mean explain] We set up on the Beech as a quad in very low winds[1-3 mph]. 1 Printed waves - Race Rods 1 Masterpiece Martin Lester- Race Rods Ok,my Martin Lester loves low winds,but the printed Kicked its ar,,.Drive was much better in the printed and the Masterpiece was streight away Heavier,,,,but its a SEXY kite. Not apples for apples perhaps. This was a great comparrisson though. 1 x Printed - All Race frame 2 x B Series std -All Race Frame[mine and kevs] 1 x B Series std - unknown rods? [borrowed kite of Neils] I flew first the B series of mine.My settings.I had equalised my lines that morning.The kites like new.The settings very similar to what the Printed was set up on.Flew it in winds 1 -3mph,,,,,,Very Nice.Perfect feel to it,Afterall,its my kite and settings.I swopped with the B Series Kev had set up.Exactly the same kite,but with Kevs settings.Flew just aswell,but settings slightly diffrent.Less Brake than mine.I wouldnt have swopped him for mine,lets put it that way.The kite Neil had.A borrowed Team Kite that was exactly the same as mine and Kevs.Apart from the spars wher diffrent.Well,its fair to say.We all hated it,it was proper ODD to fly.I fiddled with settings at the handles.Which made it flyable,but the kite wasnt behaving like it should. We all changed around and all noticed the diffrence between the kites. The printed got the vote for best low wind kite from all of us,,,,,Not By Much Though for me,but thers a deffinate diffrence in drive,weight,and handling.Less movment required to create the drive was a very obvious diffrence.Basically,its a nice kite in low winds and a definate advantage if your flying team in these conditions,,,A MUST REALY,,,it does make a diffrence.We will have to have them....OR A ZEN[Zen not yet arrive] What happend in 7mph and up around double wind figures like 12mph.Maybe a diffrent story.I suspect the B Series will chew its Ba... for wind range,handling and stability.I could be wrong though as i havent tried it at 12mph,but im guessing you would wana change around 7-8mph to a diffrent kite. The kite that flew poorly.Had the following Rods.L/E had one P400 camo in it on the left and the centre spar was a P90.Along with the Right spar also was a P90.The verticles wher 4wrap[Rev equipped].Hardly ideal for the conditions.The kite was way outa balance.Everyone said it pulled to one side almost seconds after trying it.The lines wher questioned,but i equalised those that morning[i didnt let on].I flew the kite in team for around an hour.Comical was my findings.I couldnt stop laughing about its lack of balance and control.Compensated for it after a good hour,but it was NASTY to fly. Conclusion for me Printed does make a diffrence,,,defo.We will be ordering some when we have funds for team kit.Thats IF the Zen doesnt come and kick its wxyz[we shall see soon enough].The times we may have worked like dogs or struggled in team.When this kite could have given the edge or made that slight diffrence are countable on one hand,BUT IT WILL MAKE A DIFFRENCE having them.Ther Kewl.When you get down to minute diffrences and on the real edge that Zero and Low wind flying is.Ther isnt ever gona be a Massive diffrence,but you would notice a diffrence with these kites.Streight away. The B Series is still my fav though.The slight weight diffrence i can handle,its just a nice piece of kit and a pleasure to fly. The Badly set up B Series,just goes to show.The set up can and will make a diffrence with a wide range of experienced pilots noticing it.Having the kite set up properly is so,so important.Pointless having a Dragster and running it on two Cylinders or all the tyres at very diffrent pressures. A good days flying in the main,,,,Intresting BRIAN...
  20. I cant wait to fly one Paul,. Have to say also.We did a great exercise yesterday in again very low winds[1-3mph]on the beech. Im gona post it on the Gonzales printed 1.5s thread though....i found it intresting what i found BRIAN...
