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 notice that when the wind is blowing  a bit stronger ( 17 mph ) just before i land the kite goes on its back before landing. Is my input too strong? Any advice as to what i am doing wrong? Thanks, for any help.

Make the input quick, sharp, and execute closer to the ground.  A good snap landing input is going to make the kite want to fall onto its back, but the trick is to execute close enough to the ground that it never gets the chance.  You want to give it the input that snaps it onto its back, and then instantly yank both wingtips into the ground.  Depends a lot of course on what kite you're flying and how willing it is to fall (and stay) on its back.
