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

Outstanding Cool
Normally quads leave me cold (and I've owned a few) but thats the first 4 line video I've watched all the way through and that left me wanting to go fly one.

If only I could fly like that  Roll Eyes

Kite or flyer?  However good the Djinn is, I suspect JB is better.

Oh definitely flyer - JB could tie string to a fridge and fly it better than I can fly a quad

However there are plenty of good quad fliers, but this is the first quad video that has really caught my attention

Got 2 quads now and still don't know how to fly them  Embarrassed. Newest one from JBs subscribers contest a B series standard. Still don't know what to think of them. Most videos make me go back to duals pretty quick. Then I watch JB fly and it's oh my time. Riffclown posted a video couple days ago on a new kite he's building. The flying is excellent.Keep telling myself I'm not going to learn the quads on my own. Got a bunch of broken dual parts to remind me it'll be best to wait for some hands on instruction. My quads are really nice and I'd like to keep them in at least fair condition  Roll Eyes.Getting a serious itch though.Tied a string to the neighbors beer fridge this morning. Couldn't fly it worth a damn. Maybe someday.

Just do it! You're only avoiding a ton of fun that you could be having. Think of how much fun you've already missed by waiting this long.
