Proven indoor competitor. Won 1st place for hand crafted kite at the 2016 AKA NATIONAL CONVENTION. Test flown at the RUN FROM THE RAIN indoor comp in Ocean Shores WA.

This actual kite being flown:

Comes with all shown in photo - kite, line, line winder and bag.

Reply here with “I’m in” to enter, that’s it, but be sure to read the rules too. ;)

Winner will be drawn on NOV 24, 2017, entrants will be assigned numbers below (order of entry).

In so far:

  1. @dragonfish
  2. @Ca Ike

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!

Awesome prize. I believe I've seen these in action too. Richard, did you fly these in the Single Line Indoor competition at the Seaside convention as well?

Here it is Joanna. :)

I’m not sure if there is a separate recording from the single line category (vs Open Unlimited above).

I was tempted by this one. It’s just not quite my style. I’m drawn to the fast and loud, but indoor interests me. The sad truth is that I have less chances to fly indoors than out.

Congrats Joanna, you will like it a lot! I have one of Richard's older designs and it flies beautifully.

 

That is one of the biggest challenges to indoor - finding a place to fly!

You would think working for a school system I could get in a high school gymnasium nearly any time I want,  but we are big enough to be completely restrictive. I’m almost scared to ask.

Fell into using an indoor soccer center. Just days during the week. They make all their money on games at night and all weekend. They stay open - I have a place to fly.

Thanks all. 

Wayne, you are very lucky to have that indoor soccer center. I rarely get to fly indoor myself. The past few years BASKL hasn't even had any indoor events, so I get zero true indoor time here.

Try the monark outside in zero winds.

I definitely will. Most of my glider flying time is outside.
