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".

About 20 pictures start at the link below.

A few show the vent setup.

Just use your right arrow key to go forward.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link.  I have been sorting through a lot of stuff and finally got to a huge padded ski bag which contains a lot of kites. At the bottom of the bag was some rolled papers which are copies of a discussion on the Forum from Feb 2006 with suggested spars to be used on the AVS and Pro Comp, a bridling diagram and a photo of the vent setup on the AVS. Probably will be my next project(s).

If you are on Facebook, you might want to add Ian Esposo.

Those are his kites and he knows everything about them.

Nope,I'm not on Facebook.  I think I got these as sails and framed them with materials I had on hand; leading edge fittings on the Pro Comp are vinyl tubing.  Later on I'll sort through the info I found and decide on materials.

Look before you leap!  I should put more stock in that statement.   There was a discussion on the Forum back in Feb 2006 with the original post by pfouts. I don't know if that discussion can still be accessed, maybe someone has saved some of the info. I finally got around to emptying the bag and took the kites out for a quick look. As it stands now, the Platinum Pro Comp is framed with Avia Sport G-Force UL. At the bottom of the sleeve was a half bridle so I can make more.  The AVS is framed in 6mm pultruded, probably because thats' what I had on hand.

FYI, the original frame of the Falhawk THP Platinum was :

- Black Diamond Lite for the Pro comp.

- Black Diamond Strong for the AVS.
