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.

 I have a couple of Doug's Birds of Prey that I have been flying. (Awesome gliders by the way) Anyhow I really want to try these out indoors. I have been looking for someplace to fly indoors. NO luck. Sad Does anybody know where to fly indoors? I live in the LA area. I would be willing to travel a few hours to get to do it. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You
Tom

The San Diego Kite Club will be having our monthly indoor fly at the Alliant University gym this Friday from 7:30 to 9:30 PM. We share the facility with a group of electric RC airplane fliers. There is more than enough room for everyone to fly without issue.

The indoor flys are usually on the fourth Friday of the month unless there's a conflict with sports activities in the gym. That is case next month, so we'll be flying on May 8th.

Hi, if you are in the San Fernando Valley I know that there are indoor scale models flyers who have indoor sessions in Burbank I believe, it's not kite but I'm sure they would be happy to accommodate for you to try, those guys are really cool.
I can't remember the details but contact the hobby shop "Smith Bros Hobby Center" 8941 Reseda Blvd, Northridge, CA 91324 - (818) 885-8636, the owner who is an adorable old man specialized in free flight and will give you the information where the "indoor" guys are flying. If you talk to him, I'm sure he will be more than happy to welcome you, ask for him as he's not in the shop every day.

In my experience, when I was flying indoor years ago (in France), when it was time to explain what I wanted to do to ask for gymnasium reservation, people who of course didn't know anything about kite where really thinking I was crazy to fly a kite indoor... and of course when I was getting a slot, they were blasting the AC in the gymnasium  Roll Eyes

Good luck.
