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.

IF you read my review you already know I was mainly planing on stacking this little stunter.  Well I managed to get enough to do a 5 stack but left one as a single so those that came to todays ripon fly could try it out if they wanted.  Heres how the 4 stack did. IF the wind is good you can leading edge launch this kite fairly easily but using the v tail as a stand works really well. 

Its not quite fine tuned yet, nor am I done adding to the stack but its a start.  Now if there was at least one more color.....

Nice, came out pretty good.  I wasn't sure if I was flailing around too much trying to follow them. Wink

Very cool. Something about a stack that never ceases to amaze me.

You made the launch look pretty effortless, too. I can't even get one kite off the ground.  Embarrassed
