The Prism was originally sold through Northeast Sailplanes. Supposedly the major components are still available. I ordered a fuse and tail for one last June, and it has yet to show up, however...

Actually the original manufacture of the Prism was Ed Slegers of Slegers International. He made several versions, a t-tail with the RG-15 airfoil, a t-tail with 7037 airfoil, and the same two airfoils with the v-tail configuration.

I just acquired a Prism. I don't know much about it. Can anyone provide a source of information, just in general. NE sail lists a fuse as being available, not that I need one.

How do I tell which airfoil I have? Also, I need wing rods. Where can I find specs?

Thanks!

Ron Vann's name has come up from a few sources, but I can't find anything on him. Slegers International website is no longer active. Someone thought his health might be poor and that he had dropped out of the business.

I don't have CG specs or anything. I can guess my way through all of it, but it is always nice to find someone who had the info.
