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".

Here's a video of Mr Qian, one of a few experts in Weifang on the art of Pan Ying:

Thanks for the video.
A friend gave me an eagle a few years ago but I never dared fly it because it looked so fragile, its just been hung on the wall. I had no idea thats how they are flown.

The tricky part is using the "pan" or reel to control and steer the kite. i keep trying to use my hands to hold the line or keep get the lines tangled on the reel.

If someone wants to get one of these do check with Steve if not, one of our local retailers should be able to get the set and with Steve's permission I can help to link up  Wink

It reminds me a bit of my old "U-control" model airplanes, that we flew on two lines (usually wires). We usually flew them with their little glo-plug methanol-fueled engines running, but sometimes we'd fly them "quietly" on slightly shorter lines. Most of the no-engine flying was circular "ground passes", which could make you dizzy.
