This tutorial explains some of the dynamics of line weight and length selection on Revolution kites… This is one of those topics where there is no “right way”, and we hope the information contained in this video help you experiment and find your own favorite(s).
This tutorial details the assembly and disassembly methods used by Team iQuad out on the field, at over one hundred festivals worldwide since 2006… These techniques will help simply the process, and extend the life of your equipment thanks to proper handling.
This tutorial from Kitelife.com covers basic light wind techniques and how the Rev transitions between a powered state and gliding state, enabling anyone to fly in the lightest of winds, simply by cycling your ground space and know how to apply tension.
This tutorial from Kitelife.com introduces the techniques behind “3D Flying”, where the pilot is able to pull the kite of of the sky and catch it, then toss it back out to the end of the lines and fly, all without your kite even touching the ground!
This tutorial from Kitelife.com covers the techniques for learning Reverse Flight and how to work toward a stable execution of this movement in the basic four directions… Reverse Flight is far easier to learn than one might believe, using minimized inputs and changing your point of reference with regard to the initial goals.
This tutorial from Kitelife.com details the dynamic of Sail Loading wherein the pilot is able to compress and decompress wind in the sail at will, using that pressure and added control to flex and unflex the frame, creating a far greater range of movement in varying wind conditions… One of the greatest uses for Sail Loading is that it also serves to minimize the amount of input required, instead relying on increased or decreased pressure to enhance smaller inputs.
This tutorial details two basic methods for relaunching a Rev from the flat belly down position, leading edge away or toward you. Being a two-dimensional kite when not under power, the Revolution can be a little tricky to relaunch when it’s flat on the ground but with these simple techniques, it’s generally no more difficult than flipping over any other kind of sport kite.
