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".

I've got a GoPro Hero HD camera and was experimenting with it mounted on a Proteus dual-line and a Rev quad, here you can watch some of the pics: https://picasaweb.google.com/109499384873263704128/KAP110723

I shot some video footage too, but I still have to edit it, hope to publish a video shortly.

Hey G-
Wow ! Nice shots ! I'm really jealous of your flying spot, even an off-shore breeze must be pretty smooth, looks like the wind has plenty of room to settle down after going through the buildings.
Glad to have this perspective on your flying field, I recognized the statues (monuments ?) from your videos.

I have not weighted it myself, but according to the GoPro manual, the camera with the battery included weighs approximately 90 grams, the rig as it is now might be another 40 grams or something like that. It did affect the flight of both kites, but they both were relatively easy to launch and keep on the air, even today that the wind was quite low, almost in the UL range.

We consider ourselves quite privileged to have this park so close, it is four miles from my home, I usually get there faster in my bicycle than driving the car. Those strange towers in most of my videos are called the "Monumento del Milenio" and nice or ugly, it have become an icon of the park. And you are right, the wind is enjoyable even when off-shore.

Nice... I know this was posted last year but I just found it (searching the forum for 'KAP')... I love it, great job! Next time I shoot some fisheye lens pictures. I'm curious about the location and what the towers are for.

Location is Paseo de la Costa in Vicente López, northern suburb of Buenos Aires on the coast of Río de la Plata. Those towers are a monument commemorating the beginning of the millenium.
