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".

Thanks for the info.

It turns out that mine was a bit out of whack, 1.25 cm off on the top and several cm off on the bottom, also the centerT was way too high.

I am waiting on my new yoyo stoppers (old ones were worn to a nub, which makes me think that it was tuned in at some point).  Once I get those, I look forward to putting it all back together and taking it for a spin with the default weight (18.5 g in the tail on mine).

It flies really well as it is now after a few minutes of spinning last time at Kite Hill.  Hard to imagine it can get any better.  If at all possible, would really like to give it a try again after you have it all put back to its default setting, before the VF-21 deadline would be the best  Smiley.  D

Thanks Randy.  I made the upper and lower apa adjustments and the kite now easily yoyos with the default tail weight.

Sweet! A properly tuned Nirvana is quite a treat to fly. Glad it worked out.
