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".

ok, I'm confused, I see very little movement in the background trees for high wind.

I've flown it 15mph or a little above.

It flies pretty much like that.

Goodly amount of pull, nice lines, tricks are good but it does a weird little tuck under move when the nose goes towards or away that I am attributing to the dihedral in the nose.

Looking to fly it again shortly in lighter wind and seeing how that goes.

Not sure about that nose treatment..

Yeah you could see the tree's moving in some of the shots, small details like leaves do get lost with video compression. The proof of the higher winds is watching those snap lazies starting at the right side of the window and finishing back in the center. I can't do them but I would've guessed Insane's were lower wind tricks or require some movement forward, shows what I know.

Best evidence of the wind is everything looks like it was done on the right side of the window not straight downwind.  And yes the snap lazies really move toward the center like it was a big input.  The trees do move.

yeah, I could easily tell the kite is getting blown around easily, I just look at details alot, like the trees. Ain't no thang, just testing other's eyesight perhaps....or questioning mine.  Wink
