'Threading' Rev's

Mon Sep 18, 2006 3:40 pm

I was watching this:

http://www.kitevideo.net/iquad_us/wsikf06_iQuad.mpg (warning >500Mb download :shock:)

when I noticed at about 1:47 into the video something I'd not seen before - 'threading' Rev's between the lines of each other.

Is this a new thing?

I must admit I was rather impressed :-)

cool - it's a very nice slow move (or can you do it quickly?)

I should imagine one slip and you're looking at a bit of a birds nest though...

The Rvolution (Gary Play365 and Paul Woody65) have also been doing it for a while now. They did it in competition earlier this year and I'm told that one of the judges didn't even notice.

Here's a couple of photos of The Revolution threading and unthreading at Dunstable earlier this year.

I'd really like to see that - I'd assume the Fury flies between the Rev's lines, is that right?

Chris axels through the lines, then puts it in a fade and I fly out. :shock:

I would have been involved in that threading and no, its not a new thing, but, a lot of fun if you have a steady hand. I saw it initially years ago, with Penny Lingenfelter. We did try a super long thread at WSIKF, with John working his way through 6 revs, but, it gets pretty dicey after 4 revs. We tended to stick to doing this between 2 kites at a time.

Barresi and I spent some time this summer flipping a Sea Devil through my lines but, we didnt catch it on video alas.

I've got some video from Dieppe 2004 of one of the Robertshaw's threading their standard Rev 1 sized version through the lines of one of Too Much Fun's Rev 1.5 sized. It almost went without a hitch, I'll dig it out and post it - its rare you get a Robertshaw mistake on tape.

That looks good - nice sail pattern too.

RGB kites - the three primary colours of light - Can you rotate this formation to make white? ;-)
