Video: Lightweight RiteWing TL 36, strong wind, Mermen "surf" music

FYI...

Here is a HD video of one of Chris's 36" wings built for slope soaring... a scaled down TL50. I built it light at 13.7 ounces. The flying site is Mormon Lake Overlook, near Flagstaff, AZ. Wind was in the twenties.

Lightweight RiteWing TL36 wing, strong wind, and some "Surf" music (3 min 58 sec)

Chris:

I had her on a very "tight rein" to keep her close-in... and she was a lot to handle. If cut her loose she was a rocket. I am amazed what speed I could get out of such a light gilder. Super fun!

I hope we can do some flying together after your road trip.
