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".

It's now my favorite glider/kite, it will fly in the wind of a flea fart!

Nice !!!!!  I would love " a long way home" but a 240  would work.  I did blow up a Walla (Aerobe) to 10 ft.  It flies in a whisper.

Tony, that is the nicest collection of gliding kites I've seen, I'd been designing something along the lines of the Plutz myself but life keeps getting in the way of clearing off the building table and getting anything off paper and onto real fabric and carbon. The Horvath designs have also been pretty inspiring, but I see a lot of prototypes possibly before getting the balance right. Sorry for the hiijack below but ...

10 ft? OK need a few more details on that String, I was finally getting the hang of my Aerobe after a bit of advice and flying time in with John (KingJ) why don't you start a new thrread and post a few pics so we don't take over Tony's Horvath thread.

Might be time for Steve to start a new Forum area, something like Fighters & Gliders, sure getting popular.

Still nicer without even that. Try it indoors once if you have the chance.

Got a 240 coming next week. Got a good deal.  Looking forward to flying it if the wind ever drops around here. 20 to 30 mph today. Last year was flying bigger stuff and could not get enough wind most of the time......Go figure...... Huh Cry

Order a UL, wind doesn't drop below 20, order a vented, no wind. Order both, it'll rain for a week... Roll Eyes

"get ya moving around a bit as well."

Not me, I'm a ol' fart and my body doesn't move anymore. I cheat and  use a 6 ft. wand I made out of a couple 2 wrap rev rods with a fishing eye made out of a clothes hanger taped to it so I can stand in one place. BTW, I have a Horvath Hybrid 130 and 200 on its way to keep my 240 company.  Smiley

Finally got to fly my 240 is some light air today.  What a sweet nice flier. Just floats on the air.  Great in thermals.  Like Tony said, wonderful easy turner...will just do nice slow flat turns.  Great control.   Grin (now to blow it up to 12 ft. Cheesy)

Hey Stringfly, I bet the 240 turns out to be your favorite no-wind flyer, it sure is mine. BTW I just got my 130 and 200 so now I got the whole family:)
