I'm having trouble with revlets right now so I can't see what's on your 
page, but in general, you might want to look at the "move" command 
instead of "send". There is a lockMoves property you can set if you want 
to move multiple objects at once, then you issue move commands, then 
unlock moves. All the objects will move at the same time.

I could be off base though, since I can't see the revlet.
