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".

It's alive!  Muahah!

Finally got my Tiger II going on Saturday, what a rush.  After countless launch attempts and many hours tinkering it has finally arisen.   Wink

Long Duong Tiger II


Sorry for the bad video & poor framing, I was alone so was forced to set the phone on the ground and hope for the best.

Long Duong Tiger II


Had to include this one as I managed to save it mid-air somehow.  Surprised myself on that one.

Enjoy,
  Mike

You can get a 'launcher' to help get it flying - a guy on 'the other place' bought one along with his new TigerII but it would be easy to make.
