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".

I am posting a video done in March of this year during a heat wave in Michigan.  It was hot 86 degrees highest that week.  I was flying my Ocius Sul in 1-3 mph winds.  When they died to Zero I started flying my INAK. on 75' 50# lines.  The INAK fly's with zero wind.  You have to adjust for inputs but she tricks.

When it comes to 1-3 mph FORGET IT>  The Ocius Sul is fantastic.  I have two.
 I fly on 60',75',100' #50 lines. 

No reason to stop flying because of the wind loss. 

Finding the right kite is difficult.  I am a newbie.  But a Lucky newbie.  A lot of good advisors around me.
