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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

The posts with the Bird of Prey 24 and 36 plans now have the links for pictures to help you build the kite, if you so desire.  Also, I made minor changes to the construction plans for both kites, so if you previously downloaded the plans, please do so again.  On the Bird of Prey 24, I changed the stitching lines for the nose and tail to a dashed lines.  On the Bird of Prey 36, I added the missing stop below the center joiner, and updated the list of materials accordingly.

Yours in kiting,

Hello WhiteBird,

The diagram below shows a messenger system that goes up the line using a sail.
It works better with a para foil kite that flys at a lower angle than say, a Conyne
Delta which tends to be more over head. The lower angle helps the sail climb the line.

Also working on a radio controlled release mechanism seen on a radio controlled
model plane. When it has been tested will post plans.
