Excellent maiden report Kurt, she does look a peach and just the thing for light air days I have no doubt. And it has so much wing that vis must be enhanced! All the best. S.

Both of these planes are unpure.

My favorite (and possibly the ultimate 3 meter woodie floater) is the Mirage.

The baby is my e-Zephyr II (276 grams, 1.5 meter) - one fine little thermal machine.

O3?


Ihavawdy,
Crikey! I can perhaps believe the mother was an O3, but who the heck was the daddy?

15 year old BOT


I built this Bird of Time glider Christmas of 1997 , flew the heck out of it in North Carolina launced with a bungee cord . It languised as a wreck for 15 years before I was able to restore it with electric power .

Flies soooo sweet in these Southern Kentucky skies !

Wow, very nice. Electric has saved a bunch of mine (old wood wings not trustworthy on a good winch but fine in the air).
