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".

Attn. Lamaniters!

Introducing the long awaited Fearless Devil Ultimate SUV 3.2:





It hasn't as yet reached my pathetic hands, and I do hope, that in time, I will be able to give Lam's latest creation it's just due......Probably another ten years of flailing and maybe,..............just maybe    Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed  Reports of the testing from the Master indicate it is a pure flying machine.

We can't wait

OK, spill the beans... what does 3.2 mean ? 3.2 meters ? I absolutely need one if that's the case. Especially if the wind range is 2-40mph !   Huh

You would have to ask Lam that question, Rob......The last Transformer was a 3.5 and I know the Fearless is larger...........I don't know anything about the titles or designations, just that I like trying to fly them......and again, I CAN"T WAIT!  Windrange, according to Lam is low-medium, so I figure that means 2 to at least 20mph.

It looks great!

But it doesn't look 3.2 meters. That would be over 10 feet. Also, SUV? Super Ultra(light?) Vented? (Sports Utility Vehicle?)

I believe it means Super Vented.  There are 10 vents total.

Another photo from Lam:



I hope I have the intestinal fortitude to put it in the air and risk the unfathomable.

This shot should give you a better look at the vents and their placement.
It is a full size kite, but it's the same kite as your red light vented, Rob, except for framing, weight, bridle, vents, and various other things, the knowledge of which I will probably never be told nor would understand if I was.   Roll Eyes

 


Can't wait...sorta feel like a kid the week before Christmas Embarrassed

I'd guess that it's about 2.3 metres

Have you seen this kite in the 'flesh' so to speak?

That's his standard Yo-Yo stopper also on the kite. Dull points now on the first two then the smaller track follows. VERY KOOL. Never seen him place vents on the central lower portion of the kite on both sides of the NOSE of the Fearless Face. He is also experimenting with vents on the SUL. To create a smoother ride with a sudden wind increase ... his mindset seems to be here right now  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy. Plan to order a SUL VENT in September.
