  1. Congratulations on your new kites, I'm sure you will be very pleased with your purchase.
  2. I think your a good pilot, much better than novice or intermediate. Thanks for the video.

    Club 38

    Hello, I'm also interested in learning more about Club 38. I have basic/intermediate knowledge on how to fly, but what if I get to a spot or level I just can't complete, will someone be around to teach you the levels you have no shot at learning on your own? I would also like to know what is the moves or lessons that I'm going to learn to take my flying to pro level. I understand line management, setting up to fly, wind window, wind speed, take off, hover, dive stop, bicycles, and some reverse flight skills. I have trouble with over-steer, and the more advanced moves like, body mechanics, axel, float, and kite control More information on Club 38 is needed.
  4. I was wondering what is the weight or pounds of the bridle line on the SUL (white bridle) ???
  5. The Revolution Phantom Dave is the man to talk to http://www.kiteconnection.com/cgi-bin/store.cgi
  6. This is my "B" from TKC I want to get his pattern in mid, and full vent next as I really like this style.

Kite events around the world help introduce people to the fun of kite flying, the rich history of kites, the stunning artistry of kitemakers, and how kites can be used as educational tools. http://www.nationalkitemonth.org/category/2016-nkm/ https://www.facebook.com/NationalKiteMonth
  8. I just got myself a NYM (standard), and I know I may be in the back of the bus, but better late than never. I got the Green Race Rods, and the 3 wrap rods with the kite, and my main question is how much flex or bow can the Green Race Rods take? I fly my Revolution B Series with Black Race Rods in about the same wind, and don't get the flex or bow I get from the Green Race Rods, and was wondering if the flex or bow of the kite effects its flight ability, and how much is a bad thing. When should I be switching to a stiffer rod in higher wind or is there a learning curve to the Green Race Rods, maybe I should be using more brake?
  9. Can anyone provide photos of the proper way to set up a Supersonic? Also will the Supersonic ever get updated, or a new pattern, I have the black one with one red panel, would like to see more color options in the Supersonic.
  10. I would like to try the Diamond rods, are they a special order item, as cant find them online. How much is a full set of Diamond rods for the 1.5 SUL ?
  11. Are the Diamond frames the same as the Zen Frame? What about the Green Race frame for light wind flying? I have no idea where to find a French Bridle, or how to install it, maybe I should just be content that I can fly, and not get to technical..
  12. Nice information, but I must admit you lost me at French Bridle, and Magic Sticks. I'm not sure if I want to add weight to a ultra light. I have heard of pilots using 2 wrap, and 3 wrap frames in light wind, and it makes my brain melt. I have a Revolution 1.5, and Revolution B Series, and trying to find some low wind fun, I still have a lot to learn.
  13. I'm interested in the all white Ghost SUL from TKC I was wondering the wind range, what lines should be used, what wrap of spars are best, and handle length to get the most out of the kite. Should I go with the SUL or get the standard sail also available from TKC Looking to fly in low wind, but I don't want to blow the kite apart, or break the bridle in higher wind, and looking for the limits of the SUL. Thanks

  15. I don't have any local kite dealers in my area, and I have looked online, and did a web search for Revolution Progressive Stack, and have had zero hits. I have not as yet reached out to Revolution directly, still trying to figure out a price range, and what I would need for lines to fly it.
  16. Anybody know where you can still buy a Revolution progressive stack?
