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".

Oh my!   Huh    Shocked    Huh
Is this kiting or puppeteering or film special effects !?!?!?!?!?!
You film this while controlling it by pulling the different strings in the bridle, then do a bit of postprodcution with "Final Cut" to delete the strings, you add a bit of fire with "After Effects" and you've got a hell of a sequence for Harry Potter or Eragon...
Who wants a computer graphics animated dragon when you can have this beauty!

Moreover, the price is also in the special effects range...  Huh    Sad    Cry

Love this kite and have been collecting pictures of it for years. 

Don't know how I would ever afford one.  Sad

Unfortunately it will probably forever be out of my price range  Cry

But if ever a kite deserved that price tag...

At the end of a festival, the blue and gray dragon made an appearance. It moved and swayed like a very large bird. If it had shown up earlier it would easily have been the hit of the festival.
