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 saw the Derefat PDF of the Vortex http://users.skynet.be/cerfvolanttrick/VortexPlanA0.pdf the bridle diagramm showed is a 3 points so more likely to the right side of the diagram, so how the 5 cm bridle would work? I suppose that the inhaul is 65 cm long connect to the center T with a short 5 cm alone bridle (total length 70cm), the question is: is this adjustable, with a series of knots or not? Finally, haven't the Vortex any adjustable bridle for low and high winds?


Sorry, that's entirely my fault, the drawing of the bridle is wrong in that point. The inhaul is 65cm, the turbo (which is missing in the diagram) is 5cm long.
And the line between the upper and lower outhaul really is only a keeper line, take care not to make it taut.

Btw: I like my Vortex best with a simple three-point...

Erik could you post a diagram showing the measurements of your simple 3 point bridle for the Vortex please.
Many thanks
John.

Sorry this took so long, I wanted to verify what I had in my memory about the bridle. The threepoint uses very simply the same measures as the one on the plan, except that the outer leg is not fixed to the turbo leg but to the same point where the upper an inner leg meet. Not very sophisticated, but I am content with the outcome.
