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".

Flew the Enigma SUL Friday night in low wind. No tail weights.

This is the V3 version of the Enigma but with the longer upper spreader.

The kite will still do either a barrel roll or a backspin depending on input.

Don't change a thing.  Smiley

Glad to hear you are out flying John.  I'm pretty pleased with the current kite V3.1 - the kite you have with a shortened upper spreader.  Give that a try when you have time.

The kite has met the original project criteria - a wind efficient mix of ballet and freestyle. It won't change the world but it is a nice fly and does well in my field conditions. I believe the design to be stable and matured at this point as I'm spending more time flying than testing and tweaking these days. 

Still have not developed a true indoor/no wind version yet so may play with that.  Also plan to scale versions down to 6' and up to 10' as future projects.

May well slip a quad or two in the build mix but first have one more set of kites to build and send out for the testers group...
