Southern- I cant believe you would take the side of the chineese rip off copiers! The reason they are so cheap is that it costs very little to simply take a mould of someone elses model. The original designer did all the hard and from what I hear, expensive desin work. For someone else to blatantly copy the design, give it the same name and try to undersell it in the same market is plane wrong! I bet if you disected the two models you would find big differences in quality both in workmanship and also materials used- even if both look fine from the outside.
So yes you can buy the real deal or the copy for half the price but I for one think you're not doing anyone any favours by dudding the original designer.
As for taking the copiers to court, I cant imagine there being a lot of money in making/selling gliders so there's not much that can really be done about it, other than not buying the copies.
Just my 2cents worth anyway.
