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".

59$ is not bad....if you have the spare $ it would be worth it to grab to just have as a beater kite to lend out.....
heck, if wrapped rods they might be worth the $

I'll save my money. Would be neat to have hanging as a decoration . It looks really cool. Been for sale a good while now. Figured there was a reason.

I started flying kites relatively late in life. Following a fifteen year career working in the entertainment industry as a theatrical lighting designer, I was given a stunt kite as a gift.  Well, that was it! I was hooked. I proceeded to develop a stunt kite show which performed at outdoor festivals and special events throughout Canada and the Eastern United States. Our kite show matured, and in 1989 I ended up on the lagoon at Epcot Center/Disney World, Florida.  My Kite Team (The Shooting Star Kite Show) performed a series of 450 stunt kites shows, choreographed to music while being pulled behind ski boats powered by 200 horse power motors creating our wind. The show was called "Fantasy of Flight" and was performed five times daily throughout a three month contract during the summer of 1989.
This is a short exert of the shows performed.  Note you will hear the cues being communicated between pilots, boats, drivers and ground crew via Clear Com.

Its fun but thats about it. Why not? Defiantly unique, but certainly outdated. I never really took to it, but didnt dislike it. Loved the concept.

The coat space makes the most sense, but on the way out I had them next to the window and on the way back I found overhead space. Worst case Id have stuck em between my legs. If you put them in lightweight plastic tube worst case an attendant would check em last minute. You can get two kites in a USPS tube and maybe the line sets too

If I have a wall seat I keep the kite roll along the wall at my foot, never had a question.
I have had it put it in the 'closet'with the sport coats and that worried great, just remember it!
If we brought enough to fill the overhead compartment then they end up there with our stuff

Gaday mate... The lagoon at Epcot was 40 acres with 3 man made islands.
My Son in Law is Aussie so I have a fondness for your country.  I was born in Canada, so we share Commonwealth heritage.
Thanks all!

The Disney Corporation loved it so much, that in 1991, they invited me back to help conceive and execute a 14 minute spectacular outdoor extravaganza called: "Surprise in the Skies"  https://youtu.be/XjWHZ2fQczw

Fantasy in Flight will follow soon
