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".

Scalpel Kite 2013 07 13 1(1)

Scalpel Kite 2013 07 13 1(2)


Wind is rather on the unsteady side, around 5mph, occasionally higher, occasionally less.
Lines are Liros DC40 at 35m length. So thick of lines mainly to be on the save side in the guests. In more steady winds, i fly it on 20lbs lines at the low end and normal 40lbs.

Oh no no, you don't vent speed kites.
You beef them up and or make them smaller.
Otherwise you lose speed in higher winds.

Its all about SPEED Smiley
