Best slope glider/combat wing?

The paragliding pilots around here fly Zagi's when conditions aren't suitable for flying ourselves in our big wings.

I'm thinking of building a zagi, but is there an alternative I should consider? This would be a slope soarer only.

Thanks,
Trond

That link is to the slope forum, you can get tons of info there about flying wings.

There are lots of choices.

The weasle is a favorite among many but the shop is closed currently. www.dream-flight.com

There is the "bee line" from windrider http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=859034

canuck has cool stuff http://www.canuckengineering.com/sto...4fefdccf145c1e

The halfpipe http://www.northcountyflyingmachines.com/aircraft.htm

www.ritewingrc.com has a variety of slope wings. You have to contact Chris Klique directly and he will set ya up with what you need.

There are just so many choices and we need to know what kinda performance you are after.
