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".

At what point do you switch direction back and forth without losing the smoothness of the transiition?

At the starting point.
3 rotations one direction, then 3 rotations in the other direction.

I'm not that great at this trick, but what helps for me is to start the first comete flying horizontally. This way you come out of the comete rotation(s) with the nose pointing to left (or right) which makes it easier to go into the opposite direction.

I am getting there with this comete cascade.   My brain starts clicking in..

I can do two rounds, switch direction and then do another two rounds, but the pause is too long during the switch which ruins the flow/transition;  just give me a bit more time and I will nail it down.    Smiley

After practising the comete for 2 months and another  2 months with the opposite hand, I am finally able to do the comete cascade without any pause in between.  Strangely enough, I just click on with it all of a sudden and it just becomes my reflex action.  I use the Fearless SUL and UL to practise.

I am so happy with it.

Congrats!   I can't do left hand yet, but I am going to start working on that side soon.

Came across this video.  Really amazed with the capability of both the kite and the flyer.  Would like to know more about the kite and the flyer if anyone knows anything about them.

Always worth using the search function.  From one of our esteemed moderators:
Wind Factory Androgyn - brilliant enough, just downright excellent, for me to continue to reach past my Cosmics, Sins and TNTs to get to it.

Mike.

Still one of the favourite kites of many of the UK fliers who bought one before Wind Factory became defunct.

Hi dihongshao2000 , thanks for sharing the videos.  They provide me a lot of insights how to do the transition with the comete and others.  The flyer of the orange kite is very good.  I am going to have months of practise to reach that level.

I, myself, am in the process of learning comete. The videos I gathered are my way of learning.  I am glad you appreciate my effort on posting them.  I did not click with the trick until I saw Lams instructional video that breaks down comete into manageable steps that associate with the tricks I already knew how to do.  I am finally getting it now.  What you have achieved provided me a bench mark to see how well I would be doing advancing my comete skill Smiley

It is also Lam teaching me the comete by breaking it down into the half axel and snap lazy.  Prior to that, I absolutely have no idea how to do it as I do not know what is going on.
