Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
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".

YOu are in for One Big Treat ...  The UL fly's ever so smoothly in almost no wind.  She can handle high wind also.  Your color pattern is really stunning.  She will look great againt the sky..Video time... <--- Cool

Thanks, really hope to be able to take some vids soon BUT I would need to grow another pair of hands or bring along a tripod to the field  Wink

Initial flight felt really good and we were flying in winds gusting from 1 to 8mph, the UL spec'd frame handled it pretty well but it did look like it was warping a little when it got hit by the gusts. Kite was very precise and we did do a little coordinated flying, which looked great. Trick wise, I'm no whizz wonder kid in that department but I felt the kite could do much more in more capable hands. And despite its size, pull was very manageable  Wink
