Popair,

You might have to hang up that Wiesel until winter, or maybe buy a holiday house on the north coast of NSW & invite us all up.

Hmmm sounds like you need a few more beers
Family had an onsite van at stansbury hmmm about 15 years ago (boy now I feel old) use to fly along the beach(tied a bit of string to my son and made him run up and down the beach with the glider attached to the other end ) but there are some decent cliff faces in the area...if you find a yukie brown gentle lady with purple wings embedded into one of the cliff face's.....its mine

The Super Wiesel looks amazing and seems to fly well, Bruce. We see it on the slope soon? I bet you could thermal that thing easy from an aero tow.

Super Wiesel Tug Tow


Didn't quite go to plan, the tug had a dead stick on climb out & buggered the nose wheel on landing so only got the one flight. Wiesel glides on forever though. Has been a great project.
