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.

well if you added a spin at the end it would be a crazy copter, but i don't know the name of just the forward yoyo, maybe someone else will.

Welcom Dave,
Take Ko's advice and look at the RandyGs tutorials.
The Crasy copter and the Yo-Fade are the two tutorials that use the forward Yo-Yo.

Hi,

I have the Flying Wings Airwave UL (0-5miles), found it very hard to do a proper yoyo.

I am learning the yoyo from Randy G's site, where I convert a half turtle to a front flip, then pop to make the yoyo in the backflip position.. but as the kite is SOOOO light, it always tilt side ways and misses the yoyo catcher.. is this a common trait for any UL? OR am i missing something?

Really light kites do often have that problem.
One way to make the kite rotate faster and reduce that is by using a smooth pull for the final input instead of a pop. If you stop pulling just before the nose is pointing vertically and give slack then it should rotate faster.
So the inputs I use on really light kites for that sort of yoyo are
push to get it to tilt back
pop to get it to tilt forward
smooth pull to get the yoyo rotation.

Where did you bought your Airwave?  Is it available in the US?
