  1. Another Kite Bag Addition

    Thanks
  2. Another Kite Bag Addition

    Wow! Sweet kite. Did he zigzag over black fabric to make the outlines for his appliqué, or is it just black zig zag? Very impressive image. Mitch

    I'm in. Seriously. WOW.
  4. Karma HQ Symphony 1.4 (9/5/17)

    Per my PM, your package should be there by Friday. Have fun!

    Mark- Makatakam wins it! I'll send it out as soon as you PM me your address. Congrats. It's a sweet flying kite.
  6. Karma HQ Symphony 1.4 (9/5/17)

    I'll draw a name at 5pm tomorrow.

    Only two people interested in a 4 1/2 foot back-packable duelie? I guess that makes the odds pretty good for winning.

    If you want to join the pay forward l drawing, just post "I'm in" to this thread.
  9. I have an HQ Symphony 1.4 for the drawing. It is gently used, in great shape and comes with a belt pack, line and straps, a cool spinning tail that I made (see Go Make a Kite for vid of the tail.) I've also included a little mini-stake that I use to lay out the lines. Multi-colored. This is a fun kite, fast enough for good play but not too strong a pull so you can let your larger kids use it. I'll leave it up for a week and draw a number on Sep 5th, and as soon as somebody tells me where to get the number to draw. Mitch == Some rules and guidelines: Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins. Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States. RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks. Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma! This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it. When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it. The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it. Good luck, and have fun!

    I don't exactly know how to post it or what number you used to choose a winner. 

  11. Flying Multiple Kites

    I live in midwest and weird wind is the rule. But even in our swirling conditions, the overall pattern is still the same. Ground wind is more erratic and upper level wind less. The upper wind is often blowing in a slightly different direction than the ground wind and that is one source of tangles. I try to get all the kites I have up into that layer so at least they are more or less in sync when the wind switches direction. Of course that means the ones that fly at low angle are on a lot more line and are slower to change so even this trick can fail. I can't figure out how to tie a tugboat (lighterman) hitch onto to a carabiner. Gammoray could you send a pic? My solution is to space them but I will try using a single anchor. It makes sense to me.

    Thanks for all the congratulations. I do feel very happy about this one and generous, too. Carefully going over all the stuff I could give away that anyone might want. I have kites, of course, but also very cool Chinese plate winders, eagle kites, stakes, tons of sewing and building stuff, unique fabric weights, fighter kites galore and hoop winders for them...And I make these spinning drogues that people seem to like. What do you people think? What kind of give away would be attractive?
