Re: Half Pint Project

I think that is right, although I am far from an expert. I think the bottom lines on all but the front line have to be marginally smaller than the top ones (or is it the other way round?) to stop that wobbling effect. Jonesey (revforum) does quite a bit of stack flying so would be a good person to c...

Re: Half Pint Project

I did make one. It was a bit smaller than yours and it was like a chiwowoa with a red hot poker shoved ...... I ended up giving it away. BUT I never tried it on a stack and that I could see working. After all, a 1.5 stack is slow and boring (IMHO), so a 2.3 (?) stack would be just great. Would advis...

Re: Half Pint Project

Red and Black is Burger King's colours isn't it?

Nice work though Tom. Will look fab in a stack. Will you be reversing the colours in the scheme (red where black is and vica versa) on alternate kites? How many in the stack?

Re: Which Rods???

I also find that experience, ability and patience seems to have more effect on flying than rod weights in a lot of cases... Totally agreed. Have you ever noticed how the worst tennis players seem to have the best racket? I have even heard that there is a pretty good team somewhere in the mid-west t...

Re: Which Rods???

At the risk of being classed as a Philistine, I believe there is an awful lot of bull spoken around rev frames. The intricate scientific discussion of 2/3/4/rr/silver bullet/SLE frames would make more sense to me if there was some level of consistency in the rods. However I know that on both sides o...

Re: Hello... From The Corner Of Lake Michigan And Wisconsin

I generally like the high elevation Central American coffees the best. Costa Rica rather than Colombia I assume (Columbia is OK but nothing special, unless you end up with the stuff that has a little "extra" Colombian ingredient as it were). Nice and acidic usually, but only arabicas. IMH...

Re: Hi All From The Suburbs

Got into Rev flying about...a week ago. doing my best to get out as often as I can. We all regularly try and give Revs up, but you always hear the voices in your head "Just one more fly cant do any harm" or "You can give up next week, next week would be better anyway". You may j...

ISTBC. I think it was John Mason if I am not confusing names up. I think he had a blue rev most of the time.

Re: Kite Party Roll Call

Very good Jinx! Really enjoyed those snippets.

Its an interesting observation that Americans seem to find it far easier to praise ("Hey thats pretty good") than we do. One nil the the Americans IMHO :up:

Re: Howdie.

It's nice to have you here, Jeremy. I'll be at is in Ohio. That's 100 miles further east, so that might be a little closer for you. Yes, but is there a doughnut shop right next to the flying field? As you know, that is one of my basic requirements for flying several thousand miles to a kite event. ...
