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".

New to the Video Posting, this is the first video of my Aerobe, the wife did the filming so be gentle.
Winds were Variable 0-7, Mostly 0-2
It's a little on the long side and still getting the hang of Video Editing.

Good stuff! How did you get a "dissolve" in the approximate shape of an Aerobe (e.g., at about 7:00 in)??

You're good at damping out the "rocking" (stalling and diving) at the top of a stall, but you usually let it go for a few more "rocks" than I do. (I also think you're not stepping on your line often enough! Wink)

Also, I THINK you've got the spreaders on the back/top/away side of the kite, no? In winds this light, I think I'd put 'em on the front/bottom/toward-me side, so the sail could billow smoothly and maybe glide a smidge better.
