Welcome Soaring Lab, our latest site sponsor. Soaring Lab makes an F3J and an F5J version of the Voyager sailplane and they look like very nice models. Here's what they have to say:

"Our goal is to make better products for you to enjoy your sport. Our premium carbon fiber thermal gliders are second to none, we make our planes from the highest quality carbon fiber composite material available, our goal is to achieve a light weight with strength to the entire plane, our elevators and stabilizers are CNC to be light and durable. We tested for over a year in Southern California before deciding to bring it to market. We made a few changes from the original first Voyager, we gave it a slimmer fuselage with a longer canopy, and made the stabilizer slightly bigger."

Soaring Lab is running a sale currently on both models. They are normally $1999, but are on sale for $1250. Here's more info on the planes.

That purple looks interesting.

Nice to see more of the f3j models, because it seems more and more are turning to the f5j more than anything.

Wonder if I should sell my snipe for one of these instead. To many awesome choices, espically at the rice.
