Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

HQ shows the lower wind range of the 1.8 at 10 mph.    It's a challenge for me to keep airborne in the lower winds and it's not much fun either.

John, I'm not sure how to say it, but I want you go to back and re-read your 2nd to last sentence very carefully.

Can't see the sweater doves for the kite string.  Huh  Sad

Bambi and I have been watching a show called "Dating Naked".

Appropriate blurs on the screen of course.

In one of the episodes the naked dating couple were given the activity

of building and flying a kite. Well finally, something of interest.

They made a diamond kite with tail and cavorted along the beach attempting

to fly the kite. I kept screaming at the TV screen, "You need more

bow to the cross-spar." If I had been with a naked girl on a tropical

island, that kite would have been flying and we wouldn't have had to waste

time hugging each other's naked bodies in the surf.

Good grief Charlie Brown.  Smiley

Thank you.  I am going to miss Art's three Birds of Prey (BOP) hanging in my workshop for a period of time, due to the problems with my Singer 645.  I stitched the zigzag on Art's BOP 48 with my wife's machine, then finished his kite with my Singer 604.  Attached is another picture of Art's BOP 48.  I have the replacement top end gear for my Singer 645, and will try and find out why the machine is binding when the zigzag cam is engaged.

I test fly each of my builds before providing them to their new owners.  I test flew Art's BOP 48 yesterday and I have one word to describe the flight:  Wow!  I really like how these glider kites perform, but I am a little bias.  Cheesy
