The Sting

This ridge soaring glider just turned 12 years old. That's 275 in human years

It's a scratch build that was originally intended for bungee launched thermal soaring. I still ping it up on a bungee now and then, but she's carrying a few repairs from her long life and needs to hook a strong thermal to stay up. Here's a vid ridge soaring in around 15 kts.
