Kite Flying For Dummies... The Backspin And The Barrel Roll.

Postby Knoted4ever » Mon, Jul 28 2008, 07:32 PM

In this video, two real dummies :roll: demonstrate and explain the Backspin and the Barrel Roll. (If you have kids, they may like to check this one out!)

Thanks folks! It was a lot of fun in regard to making the video!

As for the number of strings... often i have two attached to me; which means i'm an easy dummy to manipulate by the forces that be, i guess!

Stanley has more strings (something like 4)... which means that, like a lot of my other friends, he thinks he's more sophisticated! :roll: Whether that remains true, or not, remains to be seen. :wink:

So, in secret, you really do love four strings!!

I forgot to say it ... neat video ... and very talented work with Stan. There's plenty of work available you and Stan in the Rev world. You should really come over to the dark side ... as one of the Rev flyers says, we have milk and cookies!

Cheers,
Tom

That is really cool, I saw a two line kite video and I thought it was a video edit, I didn't realize you could really roll them all around .... I may have to pay closer attention the next time I see a two liner flying.
