Latest DS Foamie?

I have not been into the DS thing for about ten years and want to get back into it. I still have a 60" JW and a Mini JW from the Parker Mountain days but I want to build a similar foamie wing with gryo's and modern 2.4 radio equipment.

I have been searching online but cannot find any source for similar DS foamie wing kits.

I have found websites for the JW that Pat Bowman sold the rights to when he moved to Northern CA and for the Gulp but it looks like those are old, unused websites.

Any suggestions/info would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bob

I have created a range of DS foamies.
I have not yet launched the website, but I am equipped to sell kits.

Obviously they don't have years of proven speeds behind them, but they should be great performers.

The range includes:
Chevron wing with centre fin.
24"
48"
60"
80"
Fused plank
48"
60"
Begginers fused plank
60"

These kits are DS spec and do not need any extra engineering.

There is no contact info or method to purchase the l2airframes products.

The facebook snowfly gliders look more Zagi'ish or Bat'ish than JW'ish.

They aren't as active as they used to be on the forums and their HTML skills are seriously lacking but you can email them at:
l2airframes@cox.net

or PM them here

They've gone up a bit in price but still the ones to beat.
oh...and they've got a molded version

First production run of molded JW's are here

Hopefully we'll be hearing more from Snowfly in the near future...
