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".

Hi guys,

I hope to hit the right board, if not please put the thread to another one. I want to share the plans of the Magnet with you. I developed it over 1,5 years and like the idea of an open source project.

Please read the "How to" and "Readme"`s carefully, if you got any questions just let me know. I don`t want to bother you with more words but let the movies speak!

It's fine here and I've posted a heads up to the building section too.

David agreed to have the Magnet plans hosted on my webpage in english. This might provide more detailed and centralized information about this great kite.

I've also added a builds page with all the Magnets that haven been build untill now. If you have a picture of a Magnet that isn't on the page yet or in the case you don't want our picture shown on the site, just let us know and we'll add or delete the pic.

The link to the german plans is still there as well.
