One of the most amazing glider vids out there

This is from a series on BBC, "James Mays Toy Stories - Flight Club"
Yes, its the guy from Top Gear UK and he has set himself a goal of having a "toy" glider cross the English Channel. Watched the whole thing and it was really sweet.
James Mays Toy Stories - Flight Club (59 min 32 sec)

I'll let someone else tell you that there have been two other threads on this, December and January. I guess it's a monthly institution now?

Yes I suppose they could have called it "very expensive, semi-free-flight". I would like the plans for the modified wing, though. I can buy the rest from Traplet, I presume. Definitely looks like a good candidate for a scratch-build, if I ever get all my crunchies and obeche/foam monsters repaired. Could be a try-out for the CNC lazer-cutter my son is building..... dreams, dreams......

Fun, though, the movie too...
