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".

Golf, but that's been on the back burner since it gets so hot here in Florida...and being a golf superintendent I am a bit burnt out.

Aside from kiting, I take pictures of kites.

Sounds like I'm in a rut.  Smiley

Nice!  I used to work for an indoor track and got the oppurtunity to run on the local track a few times.  Pure adrenaline.

I have been on some closed course street races, I much perfer a dedicated race course. Being out on an open street is just asking for serious trouble and is very frowned on by sanctioning bodies.

If you have no experience with an rc heli i definately recommend any of the higher end coaxials like The Heli-max Axe cx micro or any of the E-flites.  These allow you to master the controls without the heli getting away from you.  If your serious about learning then i strongly suggest a GOOD quality Simulator like Realflight G5.  Although not cheap, This will allow you to fly all different kinds of aircraft without the risk of damaging your ego or wallet.(magic red reset button!)  I definately would NOT recommend trying to step up to a single rotor chopper until you have full control of your hovers in all directions (i.e nose in, side in) with a simulator you will progress so fast and be able to learn advanced maneuvers like inverted hovers and flight (collective pitch helis only  Wink)
hope this helps feel free to ask me any questions as I have been flying for a few years.

Cool  Cool

I used to race motorcycles (Kawasaki H1 500) but a friend took up karting and let me have a go on a practice day. Absolutely crazy! 70mph with your butt 1" off the floor and 12 year old kids who'd nudge you off a bend if you got in there way  Cheesy
I went back to the bikes, it was safer  Smiley

My toys - various motorcycles, Triumph Sprint and a Kawasaki ZZR600. Still got my old Yamaha LC350, Kawa H1 and Suzuki RG500 too but not on the road
