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 have photos, but no video.

Let me know if that helps.

I think of your dad often.  Smiley

Excalibur, originally designed (as far as I know) by German Hans Schepke of New Hampshire.... Awesome kite.... Another heavy weight kite. It flies at an odd angle..... But pretty cool

It's always a good day when a package arrives from Krijn!  Recently commissioned him to sew me up a few sails, this is the first.

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Based on the Essence by Pim Kusters, I was looking for another kite for the lighter days here in SoCal.  Krijn's work is well documented, if your considering jumping into the first phase of kite making (framing up your own) then I HIGHLY recommend his services. He is also very helpful in working with you on what you want, and making sure you have all the info you need to get the job done.  Krijn also made the bridle for me, which is a BIG time saver!

While the 'latest' spec's from the gang over in Europe suggested to frame this with a combo of P100 spine and 3PT's for LE/SP, I find myself being a big ham fisted at times (and prone to auger'n the nose once in a while) I decided to build what I am calling a "Strong" UL.  For a few grams, I have something I know will take a beating and still give me the low wind tricks.

Complete weight: 8oz on the nose w/12g tail weight.

Spine: P2X
Upr LE: P1X
Lwr LE: 3PT
Lwr Spdr: 3PT Black Diamond
Upr Spdr: 4.5MM
Standoffs: 3MM
TAPA W's
SSD Center T

I still need to sort out the adjustable leech line (trying to sort out how to attach the bungie to the spine), trim up the wingtips a bit and she'll be ready to go.

Really excited to see how this one flies, have a very good feeling about it.

Thanks again Krijn!

Next up... P3 UL, and a Sixth Sense UL (Strong versions as well, and better pics of all of them!)

Hello Dolittle!  Dan here from Buffalo Cody Kites here in sunny Buffalo,  I still have this Beatles Cody,  tried to I tried to use a different medium to possibly reach more of a Beatles fan base than just kite enthusiasts.  I am making kites custom orders only,  we have 10, 14, and 16 foot models, plus the Variant styles with wing spans up to and exceeding 18 feet.  Check out Buffalo Cody Kite Company on Facebook if you would like more information.  Dan



Thankyou for the background. I appreciate learning more about it.
