  1. Please note, that photos must be high quality photos made with a real camera on a tripod. It does take time to shoot quality photos. No cheap cellphone photos.
  2. We need someone to volunteer to take the photos of new REVs since 2010 and send them to me in some way.
  3. I don't have nor access to any of the new REVs since 2010 outside of my designed printed ones. What I would need is someone to photograph the newer REVs to this spec. - mount REV on a white or very light colored wall. - move the bridle to the back of the kite. - photograph straight on not at any angle. This is an example:
  4. Very well explained. I could not have explained it any better.
  5. I am presuming they moved the ferrules to the outer spars was to reduce the length of the REV when packed up.
  6. The B2 is close to a scaled down version of the REV 1.5 in that all the rods on the B2 are the same length. The REV II, you could say is a low profile version of a scaled down REV 1.5 despite the fact that the REV II was on the market several years before the REV 1.5. There are two different lengths of rods on the REV II. Two very long horizontal rods for the leading edge, each rod longer then the REV I rod and two short vertical rods. There are a number of kite fliers within Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Unfortunately, to my knowledge, not that many fly REVs. However as you advance south there is an abundance of REV fliers.
  7. Unfortunately Team Animations gives you a 404 error on the old site.
  8. There is nothing forbidding about using ASCII artwork here. However photos would be much more clearer and meaningful. Yes photos are permitted.
  9. It looks like the distraction works both ways. The main thing is to not over-think it.
  10. I checked my REV collection today and found I still have 24. 4x REV I - various versions 1 ZEN 3x REV II - various versions 1x REV INDOOR 16x REV 1.5 - various versions For most of them you can see photos at: http://johnnmitchell.com/IntSportKites/rev_list/index.html The latest two are not listed.
  11. 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.
  12. Nigel, Unfortunately not that many REV fliers are monitoring this group on a daily basis. Try asking you question also on Face book. Search for "Revolution Kites" and ask in the various groups that pop up.
  13. It is not recommended to splice together two Spectra/Dynema type lines. It is way too easy due to slipperiness of the lines for the splice to come loose. In fact in competition, per the International Rules Book(AJSKA/AKA/STACK), it is forbidden. I suspect what you are referring to is tying the loops on the end of the lines. If that is what you are referring to, someone did create photos or a video on how to do it. Where it is, I don't know.
  14. Where are you located? You mention DC area however your location is listed as Albuquerque. Maybe we can find a rev flier near you to assist you.
  15. My question to you is: Are you an experienced REV flier or is this the first time? If you are new, please have an experienced REV flier, fly it for you and see if there is a problem.
  16. Contact Kent at: A wind of Change in SLC He might be able to assist you. A Wind Of Change Salt Lake City, UT 702-736-1476 - See more at: http://www.revkites.com/revolution-stores#sthash.eh86Ob3j.dpuf
  17. To tell you truth I am not up to date on the color schemes REV presently produces. So if you want one of those Lolly is your best bet. I personally would mix in other Trinfinity color schemes. The whole list is here: http://johnnmitchell...ity2/index.html However, you would have to consult with Lolly on which ones are still available. (some are surely sold out) Then there were two previous string-art designs of which I doubt very few if any are still available.
  18. Give Lolly a call at Revolution and explain what you want to do. She might have a suggestion for a REV to put in there.
  19. Kite connection at: http://www.kiteconnection.com/cgi-bin/store.cgi has the black on sale at $219 on there web site.
  20. Sorry, I've been looking for something like that for years without success. Contact Kite Connection in Newport Beach, CA. They were selling Black REVs and probably still do.
  21. You could try the other Trinfinity color schemes depending on what is still available. http://johnnmitchell.com/Trinfinity2/index.html Actual color of the printed TRINFINITYs are not as brilliant as the images but still look good.
  22. Contact first your Rev Kite dealer on what you want. If no luck call Lolly at Revolution, she can have it made for you.
