Karma - Delta Hawk - Black/Red - 8/24/18

Recommended Posts

Up in the air this time around is an HQ Delta Hawk. I really like this kite, but it’s 8-46 MPH WINDow doesn’t really fit in around here. The times that I’ve enjoyed it the most were in the wake of passing hurricanes while wearing full rain gear. I can probably find a lineset for the lower end of the range, but you are on your own if you want to push its limits. 

Here is a link to the Rainbow version. The Black/Red and Black/Blue versions appear to be discontinued. https://www.hqkitesusa.com/proddetail.asp?prod=116007

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'm in. Noticed earlier that my left arm is 1 1/2" longer than my right. This kite and 35 mph plus winds ought to even me out. Thought about getting one of these many,many times.

Probably more of a 51/49 in my favor. Beings how I'm not self centered or the like but there's no one in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD that needs that kite more than me. I'm sure the rng knows and understands. The black models are a little narrower at the wing tips and nose. They're 58" and the newer rainbow is 57". So I've read.I prefer the black and red. Surely that ups it to 52/48.

That may be the case, but then you have to look at the fact that this is my first drawing. I would think that rng would give me a few points in my favor to keep me in the game.

Not really. You haven't grovelled enough like the rest of us! 😂

Hi, and welcome to the forum. I look forward to flying with you some day.
