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".

So much for French quality control ... mine (from le factory) is

Inner leg = 58
Upper leg = 55 ... to knot with inner
Outer leg = 54

It flies great ... everything the Nitro framed STD isn't Cry

Said STD has been sent to Ron Graziano for a sound spanking

Below are the bridle measurements I received from Ben Frustos. The original
bridle on the kite was quite a ways off and not balanced. Not sure how it got off or if it was a bad bridle from the studio but I can tell you it flies and tricks like a proper R-Sky kite. Before it was sluggish and wiggled in sharp corners. Not any more.

I'm extremely rusty not flying more than a handful of times a year now but I could Comete this thing until the cows came home. Very forgiving obviously! Multilazies are particularly nice etc. and so on and so forth. I even tried an Inverse and hit all that I tried. I had to go look at my vids to even remember what it was called, lol! Wink

Anyway, if you think your N3E isn't performing properly take a look at the bridle. If I make adjustments I'll be sure to post.

Thanks Rob it's appreciated.  I looked at he video...Going to give em' a try next time out... cut the 540's..  I kept rolling the kite up all day and trying to unroll it differently like this vid.  I can't believe how many times I tried that day.  I had 14.5 minutes of cut up clips of rolling it up and trying... Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Over and over again as I laid her back she would fall forward and unroll... Still working on it...

Anyone know what might've happened to Walt Ellis, from Washington State, the custom ground stake maker? He and I were conversing through e-mail, but suddenly his kitestakes.com site is coming up as ACCOUNT SUSPENDED, and he's not answering e-mails.

Loving this.  Nice relaxed flying against a stunning back drop.  Nice finish as well!   Cool

Any details on the kite?  Or are those Unknown?  Cheesy

Lookin' really good, Joe. Those round axels are definitely your strong trick, but the rising fades looked rock solid, too. I think the kite is just begging you to backspin at the top of those rising fades. The Solus is a very strong backspinner, it loves the 'pull start' input.
A while back, Martin made this video for a few of us who were having trouble nailing the backspin... it helped me a lot.

 I see it as an easy addition to your bag of tricks, and by the way... this video was a little light on the 540s !  Sad

Yipper's that was me..  Cool  I couldn't stay for the dinner.  Embarrassed  Had to head back to the D...  My wife is from Brooklyn and I originally had a room at Extend America on Tidemen and 480 but cancelled when the weather looked badly.. I hate 90mph winds  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy...  My mother in law lives with us 95 yrs old. So travel isn't always the easiest. Lips sealed Lips sealed

You guys treated us really nice.  Everyone was so friendly. Except the wind...
