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".

Hi,

How is this Sixth Sense doing compared to NSE and other Nirvana ?
Is it as precise / polyvalent ?
Easy to learn on it (I am learning freestyle tricks) ?

I already built a Vortex from C. Derefat but it seems a bit too radical to me. I stalls too easily and I struggle to complete tricks.

Thanks.

Deep turtle is basically nose low when the kite is on its back. It locks in better while rotating, allowing for more lazy Susan based tricks.

I can tell you sail depth and the curve of the LE have little or nothing to do with how flat a kite lays during a spin. It's all in how the keel is angled and a bit in how the tunnel is set.

OEM Prism stack lines for the Micron can be purchased as a complete set.

If you weren't already aware.  Grin


Thanks!  The first stack I ever made was using home made link lines & that was quite an effort.  Later I found that Prism had three lengths of link line sets available.  I am actually using the longest version of Prism link lines for stacking my Revs.  I just had to buy enough sets to make the extra connections on the 1.5's.  I have read that the center of the leading edge may not need a link line for a three stack.  If I can get my nerve up I may stack these three kites.

Blast, Power Blast 2-4 & Power Blast 4-8.  That would be a progressive stack for sure.    SHBKF

There is a lot of stress inflicted on the lead kite's stock framing once the stack gets larger. You might consider beefing it up.

I have run into that issue with my TRLBY stack.  Did not have a special frame or bridle for the lead kite of just six & the bottom of the lead kite would deform when the spine bent.  I replaced the spine with a carbon reinforced tube of considerable strength. Had to ream the fitting a bit but that was the only issue.



Have the TRLBY stack up to nine now with no further issues.  I remember the old Dynakite site showing a metal ghost frame available to act as the stiff frame needed for the twelve stacks.  I have doubled up bridles on some stacks to get more bridle strength where I did not have heavier bridle line on hand.  I found out the there are variations in bridles from otherwise seemingly identical factory made kites.  Currently stacking some Revolution Sportwings, 1.5's.  They have the famously interchangeable frames so that will be helpful.  Shouldn't be too hard too come up with beefier rods for the little Micron.  Any suggestions?   SHBKF
