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".

Today I made a little taz video with my Bill... I made this video because, so far, I'm not happy with the taz... it's ok, but Bill can do better ones.

Looks pretty good to me.  What are you not happy with, the height drop?  rotation speed?  My Fearless SUL does them like this - slow and floaty, but I like it.

The nose is coming too high so the kite is losing rotation speed... sometimes there is not enough power to complete the 540 rotation...
I want the rotation more flat, I did some very flat taz (like in some Veyron videos) with bill... but I don't know how to get them constantly.

Maybe you are doing it too close to the edge of the wind window?  Have you tried doing it at the center of the wind window?

The problem in video 1 is a too firm pull and the second impulse is too early... I made another video that shows another problem when trying to get a perfect taz. At the end of the video I show 4 taz I think they are good, but not perfect...

Here video 2:

I only have Bill. I've flown Hugo 2 times... but I think it's not that different, perhaps the "normal" UL to Std. difference.
But I'm also quite new to Bill... Cheesy

Very nice taz in the follow up video. You form has really improved.  Cool

 
The problem in video 1 is a too firm pull

This is the problem with my taz's. If strong inputs were a requirement, I would be a expert by now.  Cheesy 

Spent the last six months calming my inputs, hope this will finally allow me to crack the taz.
