I went to the kite museum in Long Beach Washington a couple of weeks ago and took some pictures. Well, my phone camera decided it didn't want the pictures. So I was sad when I couldn't upload them for you guys. My Step-Dad went back to the museum and took these pics for me. What a guy!!
The rotor head intrigued me the most.
Enjoy.

I want one too. That's why I took alot of pictures. That rotorhead is sweet! Do you notice how it changes the angle of attack dependant on string tension?
Maybe someone on here knows where we can buy them.

I can see that the rotohead has some kind of ajustment to it , but I'd need to see it in my hands to figure it out .
