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".

I got a chance to fly yesterday and even have someone video for a couple minutes.  Knee felt O.K.  I flew with No Pain and it feels stronger everyday.  But made Doctor's appointment for next week incase. MRI Time..  :'( :'( :'( Maybe not.... Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

The air is very strange back there.  On the left side of the window It just dies out.  Fade is real tough.  I start a launch Fade but loose it.  Houses block wind at different points.  I should go to the Beach tonight...   Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue 52 degree's.  Heat wave...

Her is her True Colors in the sky... Blue clouds tried to come out.  They did about hour later.  But No Video...

I also decided to show how she Tracks... Nice smooth tracking. Nice squares and even lines.  Not like my flying a few weeks ago.  Sloopy flying that day.  Just wanted to fly..

Enjoy !!

nice, I really like that scheme... It would look good with other colors in the center field too.
Winds look as squirrley as mine are at the park. Just some real dead spots that move around based on wind direction.

Hope your knee is okay. I need to do that too.

I do love that color scheme, too!

And I can feel your pain with the crappy wind!  There seems to be plenty of that stuff in Nova Scotia as well.  Bumpy, unsteady, 0 - 20 in 30 s, back to zero a minute later, and 180 degree turns barely take longer than that.  Had it all.  Roll Eyes  Spring will hopefully bring more steady winds.
