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".

So you thought it was a kite, huh?
It is a new pair of curtains for my room!!  Grin
Nice, ei?

Now, I also had some time to fly my new Aura  Grin

Fantastic!
I was at the beach with very light and smooth breeze.
Winds were first between 4 and 8 Km/h
Excellent manoeuvrability and flies as a hot knife in butter.
Elegant. I can do really nice Slots and 540's

However, the wind then went down to 0 - 4Km/h (avg 2.5)
The dear thing still flies! It is beautiful how it catches the wind and slowly makes its way across the window.
However, at this wind range it is really difficult to do any tricks.
But at least I was flying and was not frustrated sitting on the sand waiting...  Smiley

Cheers!
