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".

I thought you meant at the end when I ran it into a tree on its wingtip by accident hahaha


And Here's a still from the last clip. Whoopsie, hahaha




So that's why we finally saw the tree branches move   Cheesy   I hadn't noticed you hit it with the kite.

I usually reach for my Freestylist or the Wolf in those winds, although the Freestylist gets some wingtip shudder in those conditions I just keep it out of the power zone. I'd been wondering about a Nitro upgrade for the lower leading edges, Jon ever try that out? You ever flown the Freestylist? Wouldn't hurt to see some nice video if Jon is still promoting that kite, IMO it never got the exposure it deserved.

I've flown the UL, but not the standard. the kites always intrigued me though. I'll write it down for Jon as well.

And yeah, I hit the tree, hahaha. Nice though, there weren't any holes. I was a bit concirned cuse it was the first flight on MY actual widowmaker. I was happy there was no damage  Smiley

Hey Darryl, I'll take to Jon about the Qflaps. He did mention it earlier.

Thanks Devin. Even if you don't have time to make another video, some descriptions of what is possible and different with the QFlaps would help a lot as well. They are gathering dust at the moment and maybe I should take them out and give them a few more tries soon..

Doesn't look like 15 to 17mph. Trees aren't even moving at all. I call BS.

Hmmm....a guy in Seattle calling BS on a video shot in Michigan??  I'm calling DA! Roll Eyes (I'm sure you can figure that out)

Why would Devin LIE about what wind speeds he was flying in?

And, just so you know, I was there too, and his wind speed claim was dead on!

Devin, great job man!!

Hi Jeff,
I went to the Treasure Island Kite fest and met a lot of nice folks.  I made a big mistake and tried flying QUADS!!! Tongue
Lots of fun and somewhat addictive.   Cheesy
I should be home  Cry  in a few days, so I hope the temps are good and the winds even better.
See ya soon,
Jim
