Way to go Babb! Maybe you should ask for a job, then you could travel all over with Ben and get paid to fly!

There's a longer version of the quote here:
http://www.revkites.com/main/Rev_II

I just got my spars today and here's my measurements:
The kite now folds down to 27" as advertised. The old size was 39".
I was able to fit it easily in my check-in sized luggage.
The weight of the kite with Race Spars is 165g. With the old 4-wrap spars it was 185g.

I haven't had a chance to fly it so I can't add my comments on the flight.

If you want to check it out, I will bring it to the picnic on Saturday. If someone brings a standard Rev II we can try them side by side for a good comparison.

I expect the weight loss and the flex on the Race Spars will change the flight quite a bit. Come to club fly this weekend and see!
