Interesting, but it's hard to believe that they will be able to achieve this ground clearance since the biggest Jörg tandem, TAF-VIII-4 (which is bigger than WIG Shuttle) has 0,53 m.

There is a Jörg design which is a 135-seated TAF. It is 45,6 x 16,6 x 9 m. It's planned ground clearance is 1,25 m.

: Thanks!

I tried to make jumps, but it was very instable out of ground effect. I think last time I was just lucky with that 70 cm jump :P The edge of GEZ is about 15-18 cm. 20-25 cm jump could be ok, but not recomended . I put the camera on the front, so the CG moved slightly forward. With this setting it could maintain 6-8 cm high stable flight.
