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 brings tears to my eyes seeing stuff like this.


But at least if it flies like it's probably built, that tail may come in handy. Damn I can't stand China.

While normally, mods are supposed to delete direct links to bay, I'm guessing

no one will fall into the trap and buy one of these.  Roll Eyes

Well the easiest way to stop this crap is to pull all the manufacturing out of china and beat the snot out of Mr cloner.  I won't say his name but he runs the biggest kite factory in China and is responsible for 99% of the clones out there that 4M Kites and others sell, yet he gets invited to all the shows, gets to see new products before they are released and kite makers continue to use him.  THe reason wala clones came out 2 days after the real ones is FW uses him.

If you want to help stop the sale of these start flooding e-bay with emails letting them know he is selling stolen designs, post that fact in his feedback page.  Start pushing reps to get on China to follow copy write and patent laws as currently they have none.  THen go yell at stores like Wal Mart that promote making cheap product knockoffs.  And that just to start the process.
