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".

dangit Rob!  That pic reminds me I need to put my Dynakites stack together.  Finally got all the bits for it but it's just been sitting in a cupboard. Wink

I imagine 12 Aerobats would pull pretty good, assuming they hold together.  You might beef up the frames on the first 2-3 of those guys.

the "bridle" bar and bridle on the aerobat that i have is pretty thin...i am guessing it would not hold up against the strain of a 12 stack.....

For DynaKites on a big stack you need to use a "phantom frame" which is a strong frame that holds the bridle lines and the stack lines in position to the stack, but without a sail....John C just shot some pictures of this just last week:


you can see more of the pictures from the flight session and this stack: https://picasaweb.google.com/chilesej/2013Kites?feat=content_notification#5876628793229272002

Ahhh... beautiful kites and excellent pěctures!   Shocked

Here are a few shots of my Skynasaurs by Skyfox... from this past weekend.  The kites are older... purchased from a kiter's widow.  I replaced the "O" rings that held the spars in place and added my own tails.  They require a pretty good wind to keep them up!

Hi,

I have an old manual.  It's sort of an all-in-one thing and seems to have the specs for most or all of the models.  For sure it covers f-36, Aerobat and competition.  I can mail you a copy if you want. 

I am also on the prowl for either a competition or aerobat with the control bar.  New to posting here so i am not sure how the whole messaging thing works so bear with me.

Resurrecting this thread again, as still looking for the bridle measurements of an Aerobat with control bar (as shown in the picture that thief posted). Anyone have the lengths of the various bridle parts?
