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 wonder how the Fearless SUV would fly compared to a SUL or a UL.

Out of this world again Rudy Smiley 10 Ventes and have more lift then your vented light in lower wind. No clue why Smiley

Next time you in town you can have a test drive the SUV Ultimate from me. Tom Patterson know the different Smiley

Good day !

Same reason as slotted flaps on aircraft wings?

Willi kochs woven design kites have 1/3rd more lift......that is due to the holes in the skin create more 'working' surface area....sort of the same thing where dimples on a golf ball increase distance...

... not wanting to hijack the thread too much, but the dimples on a golf ball increase lift because they optimize the pressure difference between lower and upper surfaces as golf ball spins backwards - something that shouldn't be happening with a kite.

Yes, the dimples increase distance too, but this is more to do with the reduction in drag due to the creation of a turbulent boundary layer. This allows the smoothly flowing air to follow the ball's surface a little farther around the back side of the ball, decreasing the size of the wake, thus reducing friction drag.  Would a similar reduction in friction drag improve a kite, or introduce another set of problems?  Not sure - something to ask Peter Lynn.

No problem, sound interesting. I only know where to put the venting on the kites and I do not other stuff like you guys talking about. It is good to know. Thank you.

Good day!

Lemme tell you about this new trick I've been working on....  Roll Eyes

So venting a kite's sail improves both its low wind range and high wind range. More vents increases both of these effects. Hmmm..... by logical extension and I use the term quite wrongly in order to get the maximum wind range for a kite there should be more and more vents until there is no sail left and just a frame and bridle.

I can find no flaw in this logic.

Sound reasoning!

Just like if I ride my motorbike through an intersection at 30 kph I take, say, 2 seconds to get through.  But if I travel at 60 kph, I get through the intersection in 1 second.  And if I travel at 120 kph, I get through the intersection in half a second.

So, the faster I travel the less time there is for me to get hit by a car going through the intersection other way.  Hmmm..... by logical extension, the faster I travel through an intersection, the safer I become.  So I should try pegging it whenever I come to an intersection  Wink

There is a theory of risk assessment called Time Exposed to Danger (TED). Hammering it over a busy crossroads is a good example of that. However, your average lawman may not be familiar with this concept and many are reluctant to hear a reasoned argument on the subject.

Really ? If I double my speed, I travel twice as far in the same time. If I halve my speed, I travel half as far. Choose your multiples the relationship still stands. That's a linear relationship that can be extended infinitely, both logically and naturally.
