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".

anyone know what this kite is?  I've seen this picture a few times and always liked the look of the kite... looks like a deep space prototype? anyway, I figure this is the place to ask.   Thanks!

thanks John.  I haven't had the pleasure of flying a Deep Space, but videos sure make it look like a fun kite.  Ironically, I actually like the simple prototype panel layout slightly better than the production version.  Anyway, thanks for solving the mystery.

... a deep space prototype?

Actually called a "C-Class" during development, this one is owned by the amazing Adrian Bickerstaffe
