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".

Kite shows heaps of potential, any word on framing, sail etc. Or is this still under wraps.

The first clip was made with another prototype, framed in 6mm No-Name CFK, P100 & P300. The sunset`s one is framed with Structil, P200 & 5pt. Sail is one-colored icarex, currently I am working on a design.

If you want to know more, pm me :-)

Magnet Testing II


Another shot! Shorter stand-offs on other positions increased the pitch but decreased the depth of the turtle. It`s still okay, lazy`s are not a problem and the cynique just sucked because of me! Current weak points are the slotmachine from horizontal pass (from cascades they are easy and flat) and the spike. It`s almost not there. The fade is also locked, flic-flacs are hard to pull. French-style flic-flacs are easy though, thanks to the turtle!
