    3.2 Sympony Speed Foil, hope to master my B2 series
  1. Stroke Survivor, at this point I'm still learning whats right or better so I'm open to the correct path. I'm just looking to make my own line set(s) rather than paying for them, I look at it as part of the hobby as I do with R/C plane building from scratch. I love the shorter lines and been praticing catching and hand launching with some 30 footers but would like to go even shorter. any suggestions from the more experienced would be appreciated (line type,#, sleeves vs no sleeves ect) Thanks so much for the support! Flew last night for over 2 hrs. Love these things! Lom
  2. Yes, RevWizzard, I did mean making my own set of lines & Tying these loops NOT Splicing two sets together. Thanks, Lom
  3. Hello, long time no post! Hope everyone is having their share of wind, U.S. In Ohio most definitely are. Quick question, is there a how to video or PDFs description on how to splice and tie your own lines for the Rev? Been flying mine on 30 footers and practicing hand launches and would like to try some shorter lines. I purchased a splitter needle ( I guess that's what they call it,lol) but can't really find anything explaining how to use it or make lines. Thanks Lom
  4. Hey all! Couple semi newbie questions, where can one buy a pre made set of 30 foot lines? I have and flown on 50 footers and love it! If I can't buy them pre-made is there a video on how to, as I've never made them and do I need any special tools to do it. I can't wait till the wind starts to pick up here in Ohio...woot, woot! Thanks! Lom
  5. Hey folks, couple quick questions. I'm getting ready to order my second Rev ( a full vented 1.5). What is the " Race Frame" considered as far as wraps go? There is no feathers on mine, just says race frame. I was planning to get a 2 wrap with my new one considering my first one came with a 3 wrap and a race frame. I'm looking at the Barresi signature series for my second Rev. I already have several line length sets (120,80,50 footers) so I should be set on the line stuff. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for the support up to this point. I LOVE This thing. It gets better everytime
  6. My appologies if this topic has already been posted. Tonight I practiced my Inverted Hovers and Inverted flight from the top of the window and stopping it just above the ground (cool)! Although I will keep praticing this and other things, I really like to start working on the slow moon walk. I think those look so cool. Is there any simple exercise or starting point or process you all can suggest? There doesnt seem to be too many videos (that I have found) on this manuver. Although Iwas up to my ankles in water in the grass tonight (3 Days of rain here) I had a blast! Lom
  7. Is the correct address for this event 7850 VOA park drive in West Chester Ohio? Lom
  8. OK, so if I understand, all I need is a Full vented 1.5 purchased with a 4 wrap. This combined with what I already have (B series standard vent with standard and race frame) and I should be able to mix n match whatever I need? So would it stand to say that for the full vent on a windy day I should use the 4 wrap and if I wanted to smoothly fly it on lower wind days I could insert the lighter frames ( standard or race)? Thanks Do they ever have a get together around the Ohio area for these? Lom
  9. Being new and not fully understanding the differences between all these frames, which ones should I look at, SLE, EXP,B series, ZEN, ohh so many choices, just want to make the right one for long term. Thanks again, appreciate the help! Lom
  10. I did get what they call the Race frame with the standard frame ( sorry I don't know what the "Rev" terms are yet). I have been flying it with the standard frame in it, the race frame is still sealed up. I'll have to look at this full vent and 4 wrap option you mentioned. Thanks so much! Lom
  11. Hello Members Looking for some future advice on my next Rev purchase. I currently have the B 1.5 Standard Vent Night Series with 3 different line sets. I was satrting to look at what my next one could be. I noticed with this one the other day that I was getting a lot of sail whipping (not sure if this is the "Rev" term but) during some high wind gusts which statred me to think about a second kite with a different vent set up. I would like to keep the cost down by using my current handles and line sets. So any sugestions would be appreciated. I would like something that could shed some of the
  12. OK, so is there a specific thread type that is used when sewing the different colors together or just your standard thread?
  13. So do you all reccomend cuttting the available purcahsed 2" wide down to 1" and if so would one assume that if you did cut it down do you cut it wide enough to allow for a folded over hemm seam on each side that should be sewn? (to prevent fraying after the width is narrowed down) What type of thread is used to sew the different lengths of colors together, say if your making your own 50-100' tails in several different colors? Thanks Lom
  14. I found some 2" wide icarex, would that be too wide I wonder? If not what exactly is this " hot cut" method consist of?
  15. I figured the tubes would create too much drag. Where does one find the strips or material that you speak of? As I mentioned, I would prefer to just purchase the tail(s) ready to attach n fly. Thanks
