Hi cheapflyr:
I'm sorry the word got out early about a new product comming from the Birdworks.
It is still about a month away. It is designed for the GWS "A" drive. Like all our products it is a flying wing. Built from EPP foam for lots of bounce.
All I can say is "it's on it's way". I will send you a picture of it the day we release it.
Lots of lift Der Zip

If it can bounce like the BUD, it's a winner. The other day I put it head first into an asphalt basketball court. This I said to myself as I walked over to it, is the demise of the BUD. To my amazement, nothing was broken. Must have been my superior piloting skills The only mod I made to the BUD was to 3M77 a 5" piece of strapping tape across the back of the wing. As my Razor broke there a couple of times I thought that would be prudent. Keep us informed of all the bits and pieces of what the progress is Zippy.
