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".

Had the same problem with the InvictusPDF_A4 so created a new set from the A0

see  http://www.extremekites.com.au/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=15188&view=unread#unread  for a solution.

Thanks Dave for allowing us to use your kite design, very generous of you. The video of the Invictus at the cliffs of Cala Rossa is spectacular.


Cheers

The tail weight system was not one that I've seen before but it definitely works.
Thanks Dave for the great plans.

Using that seam did you cut out 8mm from each edge?  when I stick the 2 halves together the nose seems really wide and the circle nose piece looks small.  But if I fold it over creating the B seam the nose appears to fit better.  But I'm not sure what the correct seam is suppose to be used.  Would assume that it would make a big difference since that is 1.6cm.

I also used "A" with a mylar strip on the back.
The plan has allready a 3.5mm seam allowance along the spine that makes a 7mm overlap (like all other seams) when you put both halfs together.

There is also a nose sewing pattern in 1:1 scale on the 2nd page of the plan. You can use it to compare the size

Hmm everything seems to line up.  For some reason it just didn't look right.  Thanx for the help.
