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".

HD bumpy video of Chiroptera is here:

Although, as of 2:08 AM the movie was still being processed by the Googlidytes.

Okay, as of 2:10, it's a go. I'm going to bed now. Must....close.....eyes. 

Everything shot with the Canon S100 pocket camera.

sometimes i think the Chiroptera will glide forever. it almost like its riding the themals, going up and down in slow motion it doesn't even seem real

thanks for making the effort on the video j. afaik this is only like the 3rd vid of it on the internet.

it's a great kite which hasn't had much exposure.

I added a YouTube™ version here:

Chiroptera SLK Glider by Will Sturdy


Been a while since I've used YouTube. It now has an image stabilization

program which told me perhaps I ought to use it. So I said OK. Hopefully,

the software will improve on my shaky, walking around and zooming vid.

It was a great night in low to no existence winds. We had the right kites  Grin

We had six gliders; three Chiropteras, a Skate, Urban Nijna and Emong. Three SULs included an Ocius, an Amazing and a Vapor.

Chilese commented “Hard to believe the Vapor is the heaviest kite here.”  Huh

Thanks Fidelio for letting me fly your Chiropera. Love it. Maybe adding one to my kite bag. Wink
