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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Thief:
Yes landing is done normally by flying to the edge of the wind window and setting it down.
Of course some fall out of the sky in other position, the forgiving person might call that also landing Smiley

wojtas:
See the link posted by Krjin, it is a easy to build speed kite that can also be scaled up or down for power or more speed. It is a solid flier that should provide a good deal of fun.

The smaller they are the faster they go?

That depends on the model in question, but in general yes, to a certain degree. To small and they get slower again.
But in generla the range of 5-7 feet is a solid range.
