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.

Kites Unlimited Custom Kites by Revolution

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.
