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.

I see a few people have built the Invictus. Anyone care to share their experiences with it? What are its strong points? What are its weak points? Does it fly like anything else you've flown?
Thanks in advance.

Been flying the Invictus standard now for about a month, its framed and bridled as per the plans but found the recommended 14 grams of tail ballast to much so I use 7 grams or on light wind days none.

I have a few R-sky and the Invictus is quite a bit different so it's taken me a bit of time to adjust but it's an addictive kite that rewards the flier.
It has a tendency to lock in a turtle thats hard to rotate out of but on the good side it two pops great and nose down roll ups are easy.
Axels, cascades, cometes, 540, slot machine are all good but for some reason multiple lazy susans can be difficult to maintain and because of the turtle thing jacobs ladders aren't that easy to keep going.

But all up I like it and will most likely build a UL version.

Just noticed Denny had already built one.  Would really like to see all the feedbacks.  Video would be most helpful.
