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".

Be sure to use thin, light, thread-like line (like 5-10# Power pro spectra) to do it justice in low wind, or to try and thermal it in no wind.

Once the wind picks up, you may need to slide the attachment point up, or it'll be a strain on the little guy, (tho' it will get zippier).  Wink But I think the default position is optimal for what this kite does best.

Got my bright yellow Flick, (my favorite color in the sky - it really glow with the sunlight behind it!)  Wink

After some trepidation, (and after putting it way up in pale, white clouds), I sprayed a black V edge in Design Color for max visibility against any background.

Btw. What you guys think about Howards Fandango? Maybe I'm missing the point but I like how Fandango looks.
