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".

Now that's a labor of love. That had to be a LOT of sewing.

Looks real good Bill!

Thanks Keith! All the kites I've built were a labor of love ...I wouldn't have it any other way!

I took the Valor Quad out for it's maiden flight today! Had some very nice winds. She flies very nicely & looks great in flight ...even if I do say so myself  Cheesy

I also took a camera along and shot some photos while flying. I went out to the kite field late in the afternoon/early-evening & winds were out of the east so the sun was basically behind the kite the entire time ...which made for a few nice shots with the sun setting in the background.

Here's one of the sun-setting shots:

Excellent!, you should feel very proud of those building efforts,... I know you are looking forward to a particular question as well.

"HEY!!!, Where didya get that kite?" (<LOL>)

Thanks! I am pretty satisfied with my latest Valor creations but I'll settle for a "Hey, nice kite!"  ..once in awhile! Wink

Hey Nice kite!

Something about it puts me in the mind of a Aztec type look, but that's just me.
