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 recently picked up a couple iFlites (a vented and an iFlite II) and have been flying them in my living room, and now Im hooked on indoor gliders!
Does anyone here have one of the Feather gliders? I know Thief sells them (hes who I would go through for one), I was wondering how durable they are. Do the tear easily? Do they roll up? I saw on the Feather care sheet it says not to touch the sail. I often fly with my son and other kids and if the Feather is real delicate I dont want the kids flying it.

Thanks for any info!

I was inspired to create an illustration of what a Valor might look like with the GWTW color scheme of years ago here: http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=14061.30 ...got me to wondering what the Valor Z might look like in the GWTW color scheme ...so here's my Photoshopped renditiions:





I obviously have too much time on my hands  Cheesy ....but after doing this experiment I know what one of the next Valor Zs are going to look like!  Wink

Bill, love the GWTW colors. Looks great. For me the purple wing tips are the better look but they all look great.


I agree Keith! I changed the colors in Photoshop on a couple photos I took yesterday of my Black, Red, & Yellow Valor to give an idea of what the GWTW 'color scheme' Valor might look like:

Get yourself some of this, spray it on and it should be good to go.

I used this on some old Sky Tigers that were very porous and it really helped.
