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".

Is there another doc which has the framing specs for the STD/SUL/UL versions?
I saw your previous note with the 'updated' bridle specs - was there an original set of specs?

Also, in the picasaweb photos, the UL has a spine weight - is that 12 or 72 grams?  Shocked
What are the spine weights recommended for all 3 versions?

In the project there is a Pdf with last update measures of bridle and weight configuration. The UL currently has 16g tail ballast to improve backflip stability and make taz machines easier.

The previous doc was referring to older configurations but it got lost when mediafire file hosting service deleted my file.

Anyway the best configuration is the current.

True! 
I found the 'measures' doc in the .rar - I don't know how my eyes missed it!
Thank you.

i thought that putting all measures in a file was a simple way to keep all data ordered, probabily a "readme" file describing the content of the files would be better. Anyway are you planning to build it  Smiley?

Yes.  It's probably been 4 years since I've built a stunt kite.

On the 'kite parts' layout (where each panel is separated to provide a cutting pattern), it would be beneficial to see the markings for: US/Spine and LS/Spine reenforcements, standoff location(s), mylar overlay location(s), and LE markings for the US/LS/yoyo stoppers.

Just a suggestion for future plans...

Spent a little bit of time with my UL today... Really enjoyed it and how well it performed with very low wind.  May need to build a standard now!
