This week I am missing the Carolina Kite Club fly. But I had just finished the pigtails and train lines for a Revolution kite stack and really wanted to get out and try it. Yes, lately it seems I’ve been “stack” crazy. I stacked my Dream On and my Little Dreamer and added to my stack of Goblins. Now, I’m stacking quad line kites. I had seen stacks of Revolutions on photos from some of the large kite festivals. They looked like fun and a challenge.
Not being an expert flyer, I decided to start with a small stack. I have two kites that have the same sail pattern, the Kites Unlimited Custom Revolutions. One is a full sail and the other is a vented sail. So I went out one evening when the wind was about 10 mph and the temperature had gone down to something bearable. My mind was picturing tangled lines and ugly crashes. instead I had a wonderful time. The two kites flew as one with just a slight pull on the lines. The only time things got wobbly was close to the ground where the wind got a little light. And, even then, it was controllable. I’m looking forward to taking these out again. And again and again.
Fair Winds All.
