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".

Thankfully, not a case for the E.R. Took a nose dive trying to learn a move, coaxed the Exile back into the air (didn't seem to have hit too hard) flew to the left and noticed a standoff hanging loose, landed immediately only to find that I was missing the rear section of the spine. Looked around the field but no luck. I have no idea how to configure a replacement for the piece I lost or where to get more tail weights which I had left in place. Help, please, is there a doctor in the house?
Doctor, doctor, gimme the news... Gotta bad case of the flyin' blues... Cool

Send me an address via PM or email.  I will send you a couple tail sections and some weights.  Did you lose all five weights?

Man, I have to say, I am truly humbled by the generosity of members I have interacted with here...
At a time when my truck says 'fix me' and I would have had to park my Exile for a while, Doug comes through and priority mails me what I need to fly...

Donation to GWTW forum forthcoming when I get back on the road and back to work...

Many thanks Doug  Smiley

Glad I could help.  One note: the velcro will pop open on a very hard nose plant.  So ensure you check it after a big crash.
