The Precision is the first F3B model from Samba since the release of the Brio almost 10 years ago. With the help of Johannes Dillinger, Philip Kolb and Benjamin Rodax this design is cutting edge.

The F3F layup is stronger for the slope, and less in cost.

Wow!! I am incredibly grateful for the support Soaring USA gives to all the soaring teams.. Their dedication to the sport in general as well as the team is incredible! To win the Pike Precision too is just icing on the cake!

Huge thanks to ALL of the sponsors of the team, both companies donating prizes, and people donating their hard earned money as well.. It's not an exaggeration to say that none of the WC teams would be able to make it to these competitions without your support!

The support of all the sponsors is wonderful, and so appreciated. Doug said it well, our WC teams would go nowhere without the sponsors and individual donors! Thanks to all!

And it looks like Barry Kennedy is feeding me parts to a plane, yet again. Thanks so much for supporting the team Barry!

Pretty cool - thanks Extreme Flight!

I went to the field yesterday, and one of the members showed up for his maiden flight with this exact ship! It looks like fun. The Blue/Orange color scheme really pops.
