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".

Finished P2... subject of P2 build thread.  This is the "beginner builders version" with 6mm pultruded leading edges (one piece), less detail in material and simpler aspects in terms of wing tip design, trailing edge design etc.  Here is completed kite.  Build thread lags behind, but more entries coming soon.

front, minus upper spreader


back


details will be shown in build thread.

Hi Kareloh

My recently finished P2.



Icarex sail, P200 LE and spine, US is 6mm pultruded and LS are 5PT, roll bars are 3mm glass fibre.

Good medium wind kite, in 12 to 15 knot winds it has very little pull so can still do most slack line tricks just by walking forward which is ideal for a lazy flier like me.   

Mat
Australia.

I've decided to move the content of the P2 website to my wordpress page. This way it's easier to maintain (even mobile).
The old link still works, but here's the new link:
