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,

I went flying day before yesterday for about an hour and a half.
Despite the little wind I had great fun with my Skyburner Aura 4.7Oz
Practised Fades and a few other things.
Hope you like it:

Aha! That's because I have a great teacher.  Smiley
You know that when I saw your video with the prototype Aura I went: "Oh! So that's how you do a Slot Machine!"  Shocked

I then just had to try it a few times and Bingo!  Cheesy

'hope you're enjoying the kite!  Smiley

I really am!  Grin

Great Flying !!!  I knew you'd be feeling the No wind thing soon.  As Devin said your 540's Slot's are right on.  I think Devin and I are sort of connected to your kite.  Not sure if he still has his Proto up for sale...  Someone needs to buy it...  I was flying mine last night.  Amazing how many things she will do.  Now call Jon and order a "Widow Maker"ul ... and you will be the King of Spain....  Solus Ul comp.  Wouldn't hurt either.  But a WM would be first on the list... When i Fly my Widow Maker like last night.  When the win really sucks.  I grab 50# 75' lines and the Arua.... No problem...  She likes a little 0.5-1 mph and she is happy... 5-6mph and she is a Brat... Post more Videos of your flying. 

The more you post the better you'll get... I've eaten up all the support I've gotten.  Others will help...

wow, low winds indeed!

beautiful 540's



a little bit of advise: sul's are slow kites, don't pop it in a flare if you want it to go to the fade, just slowly drag the kite to the fade (do not lose the tension on the lines)

OK Krijn.

I trust your experience, abilities and knowledge. So I'll try that next time.
Cheers!


BTW, 8 days left for my trip to your country. Hope I can fly there  Smiley
