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".

Thanks for the compliments.  Cool

It is quite quick indeed, but it is manageble.
Some of the filming is a bit off, but i was glad there was at least somebody to hold the camera.

excellent builds.  I'm held up for a few days as we have a guest staying in our spare room (which is also my kites studio), so I'll be back to it next week.

Geko used scrap materials for this build. P300 lower spreaders were fitted instead of 5pt's.

Man I can't wait to finish my P2 builds, this kite looks like so much fun! (and I don't have many small kites like this).  Can't wait to try my different frame options either.  If only I could get some more time off of work!

I will be building a P2 for my wife. I am a bit undecided about the LE spars. I have ordered 60" long 6mm "strong" pultrude. These will be long enough to do the LEs in a single piece. Although, when we travel, breaking the kite down to a shorter length would be really nice. The OD of these rods is stated at .230" and the ID at .144". The question is, what would you suggest I use for ferrules if I decide to make the LEs break down?

Steve doesn't have the available sizes listed but he has the .2300" inside diameter - external ferrules are required for pultruded spars as they have no hoop strength and will split easily with an internal.

OK, here she is, and I use "She" quite literally. This is exactly what my wife wanted. I'll know in a few hours if I did it right.  Wink

It's not quite a standard build, but I am very satisfied with the results.

well done!  I'm sure your wife will be pleased!.  And you will (as stated) require external ferrules for the pultruded spars to have a 2 piece leading edge.
