YouTube slow

For several months YouTube videos have been very slow. Other video sites download just fine. I can watch streaming video on Hulu in the highest definition. I have the latest flash player and the latest version of Firefox. The YouTube videos don't want to start, and when they do, they will download a...

They have prescription lenses available. I don't know the cost as I have never looked into that. They come with one set of clear and one set of dark polarized.

Re: Handsfree Video Camera

Agreed - nice flying. And, after trying to capture video for Ben's video contest over on revkites, I like the ease with which you can follow the kites. It's looks pretty steady - or at least I wasn't distracted by motion (maybe because it's point-of-view). Plus it's a great way for you to be able t...

Lynn didn't have any interest in flying kites either, but we all know what happened there don't we. :-)

Re: Kite Sleeve Labels

This subject just came up on the GWTW forum. Lynn makes a business size tag and sews it between plastic, then sews it to the bag near the opening. We used to put a hole in it and put it on the draw string, but when the kites are together, the tags got tangled around each other, which was a pain. Whe...

Re: Kites And Birds Question

I don't know if kites and birds really have anything in common except every once in a while they do share a kite line for a short period of time . :o Yeah... Until this old lady walks up to me and angrily yells... "You know they had the sky first" ...frowns, and stomps away! :oopsp: Oh-Oh...

Jeff Welcome to the Wonderful World of Rev. Our home is in Walnut Grove, not too far from you. Where do you fly in Stockton? When we get back to Walnut Grove, perhaps we can get together for a Rev fly. Currently we are on a long winter trip, but should return to Walnut Grove in late spring. We are i...

Re: Leading Edge Mesh Repair

You can sew a zig zag along the leading edge and screen where it is torn. It should hold well until you are ready to replace the whole screen at some later time.

Sorry Jynx, a little too far as we will be spending New Years Eve with Airstream friends in Temecula, CA. Sounds like fun though.

Thanks to Jim Foster for the detailed explanation of the grid setup and start-up. Made it easy to visualize. :-D Here is a link to a "pilot's view" video of the 64 fly taken by Bart Busse with his ipod mounted on his cap. It doesn't show the entire grid as Bart was, as he should, watching...
