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".

Here's mine, with a bit of changes to the original project (hope you don't mind David!).
Made of what I had - leftovers and what I could easily get.



More photos HERE

Used a velcro tail, different sail tensioning,
different nose sewing (same shape but different method - thanks again photogbill Wink).

Also sparred differently:
6mm cft - LE, US
DT15 - spine (left from broken LE of eolo Over Wink)
P300 - LS

I hope it will fly as well as the original design Wink
Still waiting for the winds to drop...

Thanks David for the plans!

Regards,
Paweł

Nice!
Did you use a pultruded frame?

I see some Decathlon parts used in there. Was a our local Decathlon store yesterday, but they don't have them anymore. Some connectors are very usable!

Thanks Carlo!
I used a "what-I-had" frame, as listed above.

LE and US are pultruder 6mm cft.
US is Matrix, LE - yes Decathlon.
Same for connectors, apart from sail grabbers and center cross (Level One: kenny-kreuz).

About decathlon, we still have spars and connectors available.
Also from an online store.

Greetings from Poland Wink

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.

Enjoy.
