One of the most amazing glider vids out there


This is from a series on BBC, "James Mays Toy Stories - Flight Club"
Yes, its the guy from Top Gear UK and he has set himself a goal of having a "toy" glider cross the English Channel. Watched the whole thing and it was really sweet.

I'll let someone else tell you that there have been two other threads on this, December and January. I guess it's a monthly institution now?

Yes I suppose they could have called it "very expensive, semi-free-flight". I would like the plans for the modified wing, though. I can buy the rest from Traplet, I presume. Definitely looks like a good candidate for a scratch-build, if I ever get all my crunchies and obeche/foam monsters repaired. Could be a try-out for the CNC lazer-cutter my son is building..... dreams, dreams......

Fun, though, the movie too...
