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".

In this thread, from page 3, Sugarbaker suggested it to me: http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=10154.0.
I like it. I've used it for every kite I built from that Lilith.L.


Krijn

Yup, very clear, going to use that one next time. Thanks to both of you!


There's a lot of good stuff on that thread actually, didn't come across it yet. The Lilith looks very nice, how does it perform?

Finishing the stitches with a surgeons knot and melting the ends works great, I only started stitching the other way because it is faster... And I don't recall if Krijn or I did it first (or if others are doing the same thing... I think I may have gotten the idea from Paul Shirey's Aerostar kites), but it was about the same time, as I remember discussing the idea with him at one point. 

Speaking of Aerostar, if you should come across one, Paul's kites are emaculate when it comes to sewing detail.

Thank you very much Steve and Wolf.   Now I just have to wait a little while to fly my kites in Seattle.

Cheers

Small montage of the 90Three VTD with some rolling suzan combo's at the lovely beach of 's Gravenzande in a steady sea wind. Little mistake in the caption though... ah well, who cares. Enjoy in HD.

How does it fly?

It flies really nice for something I built entirely by myself from scratch  Cheesy

It locks perfect into fade, like @KarelOh mentioned but the backspin rotations  are a bit hard. I can't get it to flair either, and hard time to Taz. I'm going to add some weight and see, and also check if the bridle is adjusted according to what @MaesHugo mentioned in one of the Le Quartz build posts. Frame is P200, P3X spine, 12 grams on the tail.

2. 3-step-zig-zag with transport on 0.

Thanks, I'll try it out next time!

4. Check my build of DD's P3 for my method of bridle-knotting.
I did and it made a lot of sense, but decided against it because this one has a turbo leg.

By the way: it is Le Quartz (masculine) and not La Quartz (female) Smiley
Didn't realize she was a he. I stand corrected   Grin

2. ironically, I finish my stitches the same as Krijn despite the method I documented in the B'zar build thread.
Now you tell me??  Huh Cry Cheesy

The kite looks great
Build some SLK stuff to hone your skills and let your imagination run riot.
Thanks! I might, but not for the next few at least.
Krijn's ideas always a good choise, but hard to do them as neat as he does...
I am finding a renewed appreciation for kite builders as I try to wrestle with my own.

You guys are a tremendous help, thank you so much for your input. If anybody else wants to chime in, I sure can use the help, plus, I know I found it helpful reading these type of threads during my work process, so I'm hoping it could also help someone else down the line.
