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 have to say, the more I see of RC kites, the more impressed I am. I'm almost thinking I should forgo my next stunt kite purchase for one of these. The question is which one ? The Canard looks the coolest to me...

The Pyramid Racer was the only one capable of doing some tricks originally. The new Eagle looks cool, downloading that video now to see how it performs ...  ohhh cool it does loops too and tight ones. I always liked the Canard myself too but the videos outdoors didn't impress me, it just seemed to be being dragged around, then I saw the indoor video and understood the design.

Santa thought I must've been good and there was an Eagle under the tree...........Haven't had the no wind condition yet for a first flight, but the design and quality of build is pretty impressive as is the 'Bird'.  Also it is huge.....fills up the whole living room.....can't wait
