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".

I’ll be putting a lot of my spirit into bridging that transition from “outside flier inside” to real indoor flying for folks who need it - lots of fliers I interact with seem to have a conscious or subconscious sense that you have to move around a lot or get dizzy spinning, but a little convention for flight paths, perpetuity, radius and step size can go a long way and aren’t hard to learn if the info is clear.

I am looking forward to having a Kaiju living in the trunk of my car for “wherever/whenever” flying.

My Appologies!

Looks like I inadvertently locked this thread while viewing it on my iPhone. “Fat Fingered” as they say.

(I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I didn’t even know how to lock a thread and had no idea I could do such things. I’ll be more careful!)

... I have fun with it. [...]

And did yesterday, again as a result of this thread. Sadly, I did have to do the odd W.o.S.* A pic:

Here's a second shot leaning against a soccer goalpost. Yeah, bit of snow lately.

The kite loves to fade, and had a hoot with variations on that (among other things, such as the coin toss and other groundwork) on this outing.

Winds were lightish, 7-10 mph, and I adjusted the knots at the centre T eventually to the outermost, to lengthen the lower bridle legs in tuning it to my liking for that wind. (Bit unusual system there as many kites I am familiar with have such adjustments at the upper spreader ends, in which case I would generally be adjusting by pulling in the nose a bit for lighter winds.)

Fun kite, if just a wee bit quirky.

Did someone say spinny? Wink

Colors & Pricing
While we will entertain some custom orders, the main color options will likely be white/blue, white/purple, black/red and black/lime, we’ll also likely sign and serial number the first 50 kites to go out so stay tuned via this email list and by following Kite Forge on the various social media platforms (links below)!

White / Blue
Black / Red
White / Purple
Black / Lime
The retail price has not been finalized (still figuring out some of the production costs), but we hope to make the Kaiju available for somewhere between $115 and $125 retail.

Thanks for the info/advice, guys.  Smiley

There's only one left on ebay if anyone else wants to get in on the action. Seems like they're selling quickly.
