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".

Ara this is for you....  The wind was out of the North... Very low maybe 1 1/2 mph then gone...

It was a bit warm and MUGGY ... no air moving... I started flying my Widow Maker ul... It didn't last long.  The wind dropped so did my kite... I went to the Ocius Sul... I tried it earlier before I vidoed.  It was just as bad didn't want to stay up and made me work... To muggy to work.. 

Then came "AURA" .... If the wind was out of the south that Fade would never of come down...

Ara, you asked when do I fly which one... depends on the Low wind factor.  There is low wind and now wind..and muggy warm go now were wind.

This is the Sky Burner advantage for low wind... The weight of the Kite always matters.  The AURA is a 4 oz. kite.  Jon T's kites are designed and built for various types of winds and conditions.  The INAK would have flown it weighs 2.5 oz.


Video jumpy in a few spots...

Hey Trig, That's always the way of it ! I finally got my Vapor after years of looking for one, and it was MONTHS before I could fly it... I hope you get your lack of wind soon !

Hi

Thanks Vertigo for dedicating this post & comments in other.
And I'm sorry I haven't answered any.
I have taken some decisions but am not allowed to talk about it... yet.
So I'll give my feedback in about two and a half weeks...
Cheers
