Re: Revolution frame opinions

Hello Swannie, I have broken 2 wrap vertical spars when a gust hit right when I did a hard pull. Now most of flying is on 3 wraps, any sail...std,mid-vent,full-vent. Black race rods are just a bit lighter than 3 wraps, but not noticeable. I have not used the green rods.

go fly,
David

Re: My 1st KAP attempt

Isn't the earth an oval-oid, or what ever the techy name is, due to the earth's rotation causing the bulging out at the equator and flattening at the poles.
Your earth science lesson of the week.

Now.... go fly a kite!

Update.... the techy term is: oblate spheroid

Re: Grand Haven?!?!?!?

I'm planning to be on the beach Friday by noon-ish. If the breeze is good that night I may do some night flying instead of going to the indoor demo. Sat is 180GO! in Valparaiso. ... hopfully back to Grand Haven in time for a megafly, if it happens. Saturday night night fly... bring your glider kites...
