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

I am not certain if I should be offended out not... Nah I will just laugh....

Enjoy it, that is all that matters.

Sorry though, no where near old enough for an AARP card, but I have been in the kite industry a long time.

I do so enjoy when Kaos and I agree on disagreeing. He's right, of course, but.... unless the spar is floating inside that dihedral, there's a wear point where the edge of the dihedral hits the spar.


Agreed - absolutely!

Quote
No matter where it's bridled, any flexing of the spar will cause pressure at that point, and eventual breakage.

Kevin, you bring the dihedral to Knysna, I'll bring a spar, and we can experiment.

That should be MAYBE eventual breakage...

If the spar is strong enough to withstand the stress it will never break at that point.

I'll bring the 20 year old train of Jewels to RSA to "prove" my point  Kiss

Wseaton it would be unfortunate indeed for you to quit posting to this forum because of some of the recent comments regarding your work on the big Rok.  IMO realizing that sometimes folks post simply to share rather than solicit critique is important to the sustainability of a forum like this.  Some may disagree with methods or opinions or techniques or whatever but hopefully we are all here to share, learn and enjoy.
Oh by the way, yes I am old enough to be an AARP member.  Been old enough for a long, long time.  Wink

Id be curious to see the label the issue sounds more like the go fly version.
