Swift...From Italy!

Hi to all, I write from Italy.
We love slope soaring.
I show u what we are doing for 2013 summer.

The glider is the famous Swift S-1 (AA: 2.60m scale).We made 3 glider with special livery, one inspired by Famous Screamin' Eagle.

Every detail has been realized by mold and in "craft way".

Our teacher is Valentino Troian, a legend in Italy.

Tnks very much for your feedback

Hi,
Mr Valentino Troian is a famous craftsmen in glider building and a good pilot!
He is a really good man, that loves to help other young people, and he is our friend!
We are a little young pilot glider team;to improve our skill Valentino help us in glider building. Not school, but it's really funny to learn.
Valentino has not trouble explaining all the secrets to building a glider, so 2-3 times a week we find ourselves in his lab and work together.

The Vodafone Swift has an electric propulsion and it's made in kewlar (fuselage) to fly in low condition. It's about 3.5Kg ready to fly.
The others (Agip and Screamin Eagle) are near to fly and we will use in high condition. We hope to reach a weight <4.5kg.

A litte OT, i attach other pictures of "parallel" project. While we are trying to work... Mr "Teacher" Valentino is working in DG800 and ASK21 glider in a fastest way. Amazing work!!!!


bye
alberto
