"The Fling" 2 channel glider or equivalent


Looking for a nice easy small bungee launchable plane for my 8 year old to learn to fly. I used to have "The Fling" and it would have been great for her. Anyone have a Fling that they want to sell? Thank you for looking.

Here is a nice 60" HLG that goes up a Hi-Start like a rocket.

Are you thinking of the GP Fling ARF, or the Fling Thing balsa kit?

Looking for a Fling. With the poly dihedral purple wing. Hopefully with servos installed and used? You can get a decent speedo with servos for $80 used, I would think a Fling would be a bit cheaper? Thanks for the ideas guys.

See if you can find a Chrysalis hand launch, if you really must have the size that small. They fly very well. Just make sure to use a reasonably small bungee. (small diameter, let it be as long as you like)
