My homemade projects

Hi! I would like to share with my homemade kite videos. In REV power kite video (ice ride)- wind is crappy 6 m/s and dropping to 0 m/s, in gusts it was about 8 m/s then pull was scary for me, because it was my first test flight with driving vehicle (ice skates), never done it before with any kite at...

Re: Power blast 2-4

Can't find the data cable for my camera, so won't be able to post pics. I'm not familiar with the fabric layering for the leading edge sleeve. You should get on the Revolution forum and post your questions there. Many people there have much more knowledge of kite construction than I do. O.K. but ca...

Re: Power blast 2-4

I have a 2-4, and will try to post pics of what you asked for this weekend, if I can find the data cable for my camera. I believe the uprights are 1/4"; I'll check and let you know. I think the leading edge is the same design style and diameter as the Supersonic, again I will check. If you are...

Re: REV kite problem

Hi! Yeah, i have been thinking about that, but it would be a bit heavy, and not to comfortable for assembly and disassembly.Also when i need to change frame to SLE it will not fit in. I could find some connectors on ebay from UK, i've done this before for my other kites. There will be solution with ...

Re: REV kite problem

The nylon sleeve would probably help. If you can't find kevlar, try putting some other sort of material between the sleeve and the spar end cap. Something that would be easy to replace. When the extra patch starts to wear thorough, but before it starts to wear out your sleeve, put on another patch....

Re: REV kite problem

If you are flying on a sandy beach and scoop enough sand into the leading edge sleeve, the sand will put very much wear on everything very quickly. If the openings at each end of the leading edge sleeve are large, then you can get much sand into the sleeve very easily. The other thing that may be c...

Re: REV kite problem

I'm guessing Kristaps is from Latvia? So it might be a bit of drive to get to a club fly. Tom is right (of course), there's a kevlar patch to protect the sleeve and spar. Kristaps, how did you find this forum? Mike is right, I'm from Latvia! Looking solutions on Google i found this forum, so decide...

Re: REV kite problem

Kristaps Welcome to the forum. I'd suggest posting pictures of your build to see if anyone has any ideas. I'm not a builder, so I'm pretty sure I don't know the answer to your problem. The bungies at the top are pretty tight, and usually people make the bungies at the bottom of the verticals tight ...

Hi everybody! I have a big problem with my homemade rev kites. My hobby is making kites, so i' ve made two rev kites. One is 2 m for fun, and other is 3m for power.
