Recommended Posts

Up for grabs is a beautiful single line G-Kites Delta Conyne. I flew it one time for about an hour and it looks like brand new.

This is a big kite, 8 feet wide and 3 1/2 feet tall. It would make a great starter kite for kids.

Drawing will be held late night on Monday 9/30/2013. Good luck to all.

1 - Must be a resident of the US, Canada or Mexico.
2 - Post a reply below with a clear "I'm in!"
3 - If you win, return the favor by putting up a prize (any value) for someone else to win.


I am willing to ship anywhere in North America, winner will need to specify shipping limits for their own drawing.

Using the preferred RNG method, I'll be drawing a winner on September 30th.

Numbers will be assigned in the order you announce your participation.

1 BBailey 49

2 mystaynedskin

3 Joespickles

4 makatakam

That won't be a problem. That's the nice thing, the entries remain under this topic, and in order, so whenever, or where ever, someone's entry post occurs, it's on record for all to see. You won't have to worry about the order. They are as they are..........(bbailey49 is #1, next person to join in will be #2, etc, etc, etc)

I really like that kite.....very nice......I just recently got a Gomberg SuperSled with pennant tail, and a French Military kite. I'll be watching this one closely. It would go with my single line collection, quite well.............. :bye1:

Okay, forgive me for being dense, but we're closing in on the end of this drawing and I have no idea how to choose the winner. What is the RNG method?

      Ok yawll after much deliberation I am going to present this months Karma drawing. Unlike most of you I just recently got back into kiting so yes this karma is not going to be huge but I am so willing to give back I am giving away Half of my kite bag they will be a single line 4 meter octopus and a 2.5 meter dual line parafoil rainbow color.  a kite stake,  3 sandbags, and a line winder. I hope there is  something for everyone in this batch. 
      Oh the reason for May 23 that's my birthday so a perfect day to give back. Also might give a bit more time for people to get involved. Good luck to all.
      Better and more images to follow.

       
      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 have scored a few kites here in China, including a series of Delta Kites.  I'm all about flying with toys on the lines, lights (at night), balloons, pinwheels, line climbers, and streamers.  Problem is none of the single kites have the strength to lift the light toys (a chain of lightweight plastic lightsaber toys) that I'm trying to get airborn on their own.  The solution is to train some kites together.  So, how do I do it?
      The kites are built, so I can't radically redesign them.  Attaching the upper kite to the lower kite shouldn't be done at the lower kite's spars, as it will likely deform or break them.  I don't want to have a lower kite attached to a separate line that is tied to the upper kite's line and possibly tangling them.  I just want to chain them together...
      Like I've tried to indicate below.
      ---------\--------\------\
      Any Ideas?
      Thanks!

      Hello all,
      I acquired a kite a few years ago, and have been trying to figure out how to put it together since I got it. So far I've had no luck. The kite is a Joel K Scholz Signature Series Delta; the 20' Raptor to be precise. It came with a bag of carbon rods, but they all seem to be different sizes. Do any of you happen to have plans, or a diagram that shows how to assemble one of these things? I'd love to put it together and see it up in the air. It looks beautiful. Thanks for any help! I appreciate your time.

      Hello kite friends, I can't remember few days past I saw a dual-lines kite which can be flew as single line too. I guess it was a "Premier Kites" brand, but I'm not sure. Could you tell me what is this kite and a link to find it please ? Over this, what are the kites with this same ability, say what are the kites able to be single line as well as dual or even quad lines ?

      Thank you veru much for your help,
      Signed the poor "flying in the clouds" Guy
