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".

Looks much less primitive than propping the nose up with a winder and hoping it doesn't fall over (which, by the way, does work. At least 25% of the time. Wink )
Any more detailed photos?

=> New video (wind less than 15 km/h. Look at the single kites on the ground ! The stuntkite - a Mustang by Long Duong - is framed with 8 mm Structil carbon spars...)

And the new Long Duong Typhon (winner at the german Speedkite Contest in Dornumersiel / october 2010 - speed : 179 km/h by wind 4  Beaufort) :
