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".

The Evolution by Kite Innovations is a 2.6m or 102" double keel delta dual line kite, it is a precision machine but it is NOT a trick kite as my buddy here found out  Smiley

Perfect example of why black is a bad color for a kite... good thing that kite has yellow highlights... creates an interesting illusion when flying it.  Looks like the kite cuts some pretty sharp corners, it would be interesting to see you fly on longer lines and just concentrate on flying patterns.
Thanks for posting, I've only seen still pictures of that kite, now I know how it flies.

The video was taken with my mobile's video cam hence the quality, and the angle which caused the back lit situation didn't help as well. The Evolution, really is a precision machine, my plan next is to put on some tails and paint the sky  Wink
