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".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

It will either fly GOOD...
I don't think it was ever made to fly well (tsk, standards today Wink ), just fly attractively. IIRC Scholtz himself was quite vocally anti- these upstart dualline kites when they sprang up with their "moving about in the sky" nonsense and aimed to make better looking kites primarily.

Bonus points if you can Axel it, naturally  Grin

Curious to hear how this flies, given the 'unusualness' of the design and the absence of any bridle ...

 Your lines should be no longer than 60-70 ft. and the wind window for any control is quite narrow.  If you go outside of 20 degrees either side of center it will just keep going to the outside, unless you are a gazelle and can run backwards fast enough Roll Eyes  Also it takes a pretty fair amount of wind to fly at all........If I remember correctly it was around 12 or so for some slow controlled turns. (if that's what you want to call them) 

Have fun

I had one.  I put a fishing swivel on the nose, and ran a 4ft line to the top of a banner pole.  It would fly all day, with lots of spins and waving back and forth.

It was such a pain to put together/break down from/to storage.  I gave it away for a festival raffle.

I had one.  Great looking. Flew dual line like junk. It's best on a pole.
