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.

Last saturday we had a very nice morning to fly here in Buenos Aires, with a very smooth breeze from the river. I took the camera, the tripod and my trustful Saber II and had a lot of fun making this video:

hope you like it.

Nice!
The wind really seemed optimal.

You seem to be really close to an airport...
Aren't there international laws that define a minimum distance for kite flying from an airport?
Anyone know what that is?

Nice flying anyway!

You're right, our field is approximately four kilometers from Aeroparque Jorge Newbery, the domestic airport of Buenos Aires. I don't know of any restrictions to fly kites where we do it, hope nobody else does....

Great flying.

At 4km flying on 30m lines, I don't think la policia are going to worry.

Our club had a discussion on US laws on how close you can fly to airports. US FAA rules state no flying over 150 ft within 5 miles of any airport. It's probably for the radar, but if you had a plane at 150ft more than a mile away from the airport, I would run like hell in the opposite direction.

I have a favorite wide open park surrounded by farm fields right across the street from a regional airport. I haven't had any policia visits yet, but I keep my SLK's at 100 ft or lower.

nice video Gerado. I always enjoy watching you fly. Great choice of music as well. You guys are so fortunate to have conditions like that to fly in. I havent seen a sky that blue for a long time. Good luck with VF if youve entered.

Yes, Steve, that's true, we're very lucky to have this park (Paseo de la Costa) so close to the Río de la Plata, the weather is good enough to fly kites all the year, our winter does not have snow and our summer is quite hot, but bearable. The wind is usually onshore, so very smooth and in the UL-to-STD range, all in all, ideal conditions. I live approximately 6 Km from this park, so it takes me 20 minutes to get there if I go pedaling. It is also a great spot to practice my other hobby: inline roller skating.

You're invited to come here and fly with us sometime!

yes, nice to watch  Tongue

curieus about that kite (or the saberIII)



may i suggest two things:
 1) try a lazy-input a few times with your left hand (as is mandatory for a real jacobsladder (in the netherlands, that is))
 2) flatten your backspins (i think a little bit later with the next input)

if you don't like someone make you suggestions, tell me and i remove them and never do it again

Hi Krijn! I do like suggestions, at least from those who are better pilots than myself. Thanks a lot for your suggestions, I'll try to remember those tips from now on!

Regards,

Gerardo
