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".

No, there is no pdf file size A0 because the sail does not fit in a A0 sheet, but there is a dwg file with which you can print in all formats. If there are any problems let me know, we will find the solution!!! Smiley

Nice ! It looks even better in the air, lit by the sun.

Tilting the nose forward does increase speed some but not pull.

Imagine skipping a rock on water. Nice flat rocks skip easily and stay on top, where rounder clunky rocks catch water and stop.

It's the same with kites. When you tilt the nose forward you get the kite to ride more on top of the wind instead of grab wind.  Less wind force in the sail means less pull.

First flight..Winds were light and shifting quite a bit but I did take the opportunity to try the kite out. This is first flight. I do need to tweak the bridles a bit but was quite pleased with the first try..

Many thanks Allen

The bridle on mine is way out. I will adjust to your settings and tow points and try again.

Here the link for the (italian) Matrix.

Oh wonderful, thanks!
Mario, is there a full A0 plan somewhere for both the templates and the entire sail, rather than the A4 one on the websites?
