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".

Little Andre was busy, and this is the result:

One can clearly notice that a trick pilot is at the handles, to sharp, to much stearing Smiley

Wind was about 10km/h, relative steady, flown on 40lbs, 105feet lines.
Needs a gentle hand in such winds, but then it is very solid. Definitely a kite to just fly in the sunset and enjoy.

Wow! Very nice in blue! Looks even more like a seagull.

Those slides are beautiful, but the axels look dangerous!  Huh
Made me feel anxious because of its structure twisting so much!   Shocked

Nice kite AE.  Smiley

Ara,
well, it was not supposed to be an Axel Smiley it was radical oversterring Smiley
The kite works by twisting its wing under load when steering. to much and one side flips over, given this braingurting display.

Just finished the strong wind test without any problems, same bridle setting from below 10km/h up to over 30km/h and flawless controlled flight without to much pull. Very satisfied with it.
