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".

I don't know if anyone else out there is taking advantage of the plans provided by Doug Stout (see first anchored thread in this section of the forum).

This is the Rapere glider; some build pics and final product.

Fabulous work, as usual, Stephen. Been having fun flying in the light land breeze of a morning with a ZG and the Urban Ninja and this is very tempting to add to the mix. Great looking kite Doug!
