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".

 Cool OHHHHH SUCH GOOD STUFF  Cool
This tread makes my heart go piter-pater  Tongue
Steve talked me through the re-framing of my 1st Psycho back in the early 2000's, P200's.
I still fly this high winder 2 or 3 times a year.

SKB, speaking of Rod247, he has to have the largest Psycho collection in the world  Cheesy
If I remember correctly?? He won an all white Psycho on one of Steve's Holiday Actions years ago. I was so jealous  Cry
I am still sooooo JEALOUS of Rod247  Cheesy  Wink

Yes indeed.  Over 10 years ago now.  Elli tied a turbo bridle and I went 3-point.  There was also the "Burnout" based on the Psycho - German I believe.

It would not take that much modification to make the Psycho a more 'modern' trickster.  Pretty fun as it is though with the few mods I did.

Last week a long time fellow Psycho flying friend long time fellow kiting friend who also likes the Psycho sent a note inquiring about the availability of Lil Red.  Apparently he has beaten the snot out of his kites and is looking for a new Psycho.  I responded that I've grown quite attached to Lighthouse Red and intend to keep her.  I did suggest that I still had the templates and could make another sail.  An email conversation resulted in this:




I rather like it!  Cool  This will be the first Psycho "Pro" to leave my workshop. If you happen to see this kite flying off the back of a Harley with the driver/pilot in black leather,  just remember that pink looks awesome on a black kite.  Grin

I sent a note to the Flexifoil folks asking if they wanted to start up this kite again.  Have not heard back yet but am sure the Psycho is on the agenda for the next board meeting.

If anyone knows how to get word to Andy Preston, I'd love for him to see this thread and to know his kites are still generating interest.

If you want to know where the "Mojo with attitude" got the 'tude, look no further.  For those that think a Psycho with a 'sane' bridle is no longer a Psycho, you have not flown one with tail weights and stoppers  Shocked Cheesy
