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".

Shanti kites did offer a motorized version of their Cube years back....it was awesome.....it steered by actually shifting the motor to move the center of gravity....There was a motor kit that Dan offered separately....not cheap though!!!

If it's not powered by wind and connected to something (pilot in the case of sport kite) via one or more lines, it's not a kite.

It may look like a kite, even be made from a kite, but engine and remote control make it something else.

Whatever you call it, looks like fun.  Smiley

I bought a box kite like this with remote control. 

Trying to sell it because I crash each time I land and break the servos. 

I brought to the Antelope Island festival but no one bought it.
