Black with red tips, or red with black tips? Half black and half red? Half black and half red with contrasting black and red tips? Black on the front and red on . . . . ?

The devil makes me do it. That's my line and I'm stickin' to it.

I'll defer to the color examples shown above. :P 

Nuts! I was hoping for red with black tips.

I see that. John? Aha, it's a two kite prize? Or one red tip and one lime tip? This is going to be fun, because annoying the heck out of John is, well, lots of fun.

Really, I’m quite eager to get this one, to close the circle. I started out years ago with the conviction: -”Naah, QLKs are for others - I’m a DLKer only”. OK, tried QLKs and “got stuck” there for soon three years now, but for a long time thought that zero wind was not for mortals. Then I got properly started with indoor/zero wind piloting about half a year ago, still sticking to QLKs. While keeping a zero/low wind focus (the available nearby parking makes this kind of a natural choice) a return to DLKs could be through the Kaiju (which will obviously arrive here in Northern Europe any time soon b.t.w. 🙂 ).

With full disassembly you could make about 12 prizes. Win a dozen kite parts in a stylish Kite Forge travel case. 🤔

Just one more week to win myself a kaiju. Fingers crossed, the black and red will look lovely with its siblings.

One of the last two folks to make noise were actually drawn as the winner!

Seriously, congrats to #1464 / @frob - now you can fly your other Kaiju all the more aggressively. :) 

New prize being cooked up ASAP, stay tuned - thanks all!

YAY!!!  I can't believe it. 

You can be sure I'll feel more comfortable flying it outdoors now, and be a little less afraid of finding it's limits.  I won't be flying with reckless abandon, but on light wind days I'll feel less risk.

I wonder if I can make a stack of them for indoor?

THANK YOU so much!
