Windoo1 Wind Meter -- 10/27/2017

Recommended Posts

I had to really look hard to find anything this time, and came across an item that I think a few people may be interested in. I used this once, put it away and pretty much forgot all about it. It's not a necessity, but will come in handy to check your estimate. It sold for about $75 brand new and will work with Apple or Android phones once you download the Windoo app. Needs iOS 6.0 or Android 4.0 or better to work. Definitely small enough to carry on your person and is quite accurate. Non-directional design is nice so you don't have to point it directly into the wind to get accurate readings.

Please note that this is the Windoo 1 model, and it only reads windspeed and temperature, so if you Google it for more info, don't mistake for the Windoo 2 or Windoo 3, which read humidity and/or barometric pressure as well.

Entered for drawing:

 1. @RLHerrick

 2. @Ca Ike

 3. @mwp

 4. @kiteflyr

 

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!

We're not that formal here. You can skip the tie. :lol:

I really like the one I got in a karma drawing a long ways back. You can definitely fly a kite without one, but if you build kites, fly something with a narrow window, or just like gadgets, it’s a good tool to have.

Nice one Richard, congrats!! :)

I’m deleting your address here and messaging it privately to the sender.

For the Monarch, send me a couple of good photos, maybe a YouTube link(?) and a little info about the kite - happy to set up a new post for you. ;)

Any updates following the teaser? My interest has been piqued.

Richard's Monark is the kite on the far left, a glider for indoors. I've seen and flown them, here in the PNW, at several indoor festivals. It is an excellent glider!
