New Tech 6.5-ft Cascade Delta - Summer Colors SKU: 50350 Sail: Ripstop Nylon Frame: Fiberglass Size: W 78" x 180" / 198 x 457cm Wind Range: 5-20mph Flying Line: 50# Line Included* Tail: Wide Streamers I love this kite! Put the spreader in, attach the line, and let her soar! This keelless delta will fly nearly overhead, but won't overfly due to it’s three long flo-tails. Once overhead, this kite does not pull hard, and you can hand it to your three-year-old. No longer made by New Tech. (Probably now only available from Kite Guys.) Never flown! You can have this kite one of two ways: Stock— as is, right out of the bag! Suitable for winds of 5–10 mph. (*Line upgraded to 100# hollow-braided dyneema Dacron with heavy grip winder/handle.) Beach ready— Suitable for both light and stronger winds. I remove the tie loop and make an adjustable bridle, waxed for grip. I’ll do it for you or tell you how! == All you have to do to be entered to win is reply to the post titled **KARMA** and say “I’m in!” == I’ll give it 2 weeks, and then I’ll use the RNG to choose the winner. I’ll grab the post # (in the upper right corner) from your initial post to input. Only the first post where you join will count in the drawing. I’ll post the winner and ask them to PM me a shipping address. Now here’s where the Karma comes in. IF YOU WANT TO JOIN TO WIN, YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO PAY IT FORWARD! If you are the winner of this just made lineset, PM me a shipping address and I’ll send it to you anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Then IT”S YOUR TURN! You must start a new post with the title just like this one. **KARMA** And give something away! It can be a hat, a kite stake, a kite or anything kite related. Some winners will give small prizes, and some will give larger, but it’s all about the giving. Give away something that you would like to receive. When you do your random drawing, post the winner and ask them to PM you an address, and send out their prize! Now it’s their turn! 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! entrants: 1. zachprism01 2. Paramedic 3. Mikelp3586 4. Mike Klaiber 5. Materdaddy 6. Ed Ang
Hey guys! Me again!I'm here on behalf of a Mechanical Engineering Project that requires a mechanism to be built that will launch a kite in low winds so that it will be shot up to 50m where the better winds are. I'm back with another few questions to ask all of you. Any help is appreciated!1. How do you normally launch your kites? Besides tugging and running backwards?2. Were there any methods that didn't work? Why?3. At what speed do you consider low winds? How fast must the wind be to lift a kite?4. What's the weight of your kite along with the photography rigging?5. What types of kite do you use? What are their specs? What winds do they fly in? How heavy can the lift?6. What type of cameras do you use?7. What has been the smallest and largest kites/payloads you have used?8. Do you KAP on land or at sea? Which do you prefer?9. How much would a full set be? Kite and rigging included?10. Have you ever used methods that involved an energy source? Batteries etc.11. Do you fly on your own or with a group? Thanks again! Jason
