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".

No, they will be flown individual, they are not constructed to be stacked. Aka no hole at the center cross to attach a line to for the other kites.

Fabric is Cuben fiber 19g/m2.

Windrange is about 4-12km/h for the comfort zone, with a little movement it can be flown in less and in more. I have flown mine in over 25km/h winds without harm to the kite.
As for how fast, about 100km/h at 10km/h winds, measured.
