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".

That is really fast for someone to build a full size kite this complicated.  Looking at the recent posting, the plan was just printed only a few days ago.  Impressive indeed and beautiful color selection as well.  Wondering how much one would charge to have one built and shipped in the US.  D

This isn't that complicated of a build.  Once you have all  your mats on hand it goes pretty fast once you get started unless it's your first build.

It will be greatly appreciated if one can post a video on how the Invictus they built performs besides the videos the designer posted to date.  D

Here is my finished Invictus UL. It flies a bit lower than I expected. I haven't had a real good chance to fly it as the wind has been non existent over the last week or so. The zero version my be on my build list Grin



A great looking kite especially the color selection.  Would really like to see a video when it dazzles in the sky.   Smiley  D

I will build the STD for sure, Since I will have the templates ready to go , I am also considering cutting an all white ghost, I was going through my fabric bag and found a roll of white icarex that i had completely forgotten about.

Liked my standard Invictus that much I built a Ghost version. Ok it's not a true ghost because of the grey panels but I like it like that.

If you like the standard you wont be disappointed if you build a ghost, It's just as good but does it in light winds.
