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".

Could not wait so I tried it in the dark. Whew I need some practice, however it glides really nice and turns on a dime.

Took my Zero-G for a spin last night, in the dark, and I too need to spend some time learning to finesse the kite.  Just like learning dual-line tricks, fighter kites and fly casting I'll need to spend some time with it.  When it does get high overhead it is really nice how it glides and turns with a slight tug of the line.  I had a few occasions where I was in a glide and realized I did not have the line in my hands anymore but the kite just gently glided to a landing.
The instructions indicate that the tension can be adjusted at the nose.  I am not certain how to make this adjustment and there does not appear to be a video for Zero-G adjustments at this time on Prisms website.  Any ideas?
I did adjust the tow point forward and seemed to get a better response from line inputs.
Any suggestions/support is greatly appreciated.

The fitting on the spine the nose tension lines is attached to slides to change the canard tension.  I have yet to fly mine so I don't know how it affect the kite .

Wind was far from optimal for the Zero-Gs today (variable and up to 12mph), but I just wanted to fly them!



Very curious how they'll behave when the wind is down to almost zero.
