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

The HQ Facett has six spinners, three rotate clockwise, three counterclockwise.


The directions for the assembly of Wolfgang Grimsel’s Trisatorn call for one of the three spinners to rotate in the opposite direction of the other two.

If a disturbance of flight in these kites is the result of all spinning same-wise, it might add yet another interesting movement to a whole kite. Swaying, rocking, stalling... Look what I can do!  Tongue  (Presuming of course a disturbance isn't so severe as to guarantee crashing. Embarrassed)
