Re: New glider

That's very cool.

In takeoff mode, it looks like what the Flintstones would fly if they had an airplane.

Re: New glider

That would be fun if we had some hills around but it's way to flat around these parts

Re: New glider

Cool...I want one! You would definitely want to get the legs moving BEFORE touch down.

Cool. You could fly to and from your motor yacht/camper/pontoon boat/trailer thing.

LOL, I really should quite mucking around and build one of these - with floats - and be done with it!

I could have bought one in 1977 for only $300K, but I was a little light on cash my first year after college.

Re: New glider

I'd love to have one of those gliders here in West Virginia. I'm just not sure it's worth $100,000 though :-(
