Finally managed to get a photo of my wing that I really like!

Brand new Falcon 4 170 with custom colors. Got it when I was H1, and it is currently helping me get those 10 hours for my H3!

My Twister (see Avatar) is getting to heavy, my Zephir is getting too old ( 27).

Needed something new, as light as the Zephir (30kg), same perfect handling and better penetration.. Something like WW Sport 2 ( as Americans would respond..)...

Now thats my new ( 2nd hand ) "Ultimate Flying Machine" : Bautek Kite , bought from my friend Jürgen aka "the preacher" :mrgreen:

Nothing humble about a Falcon. One of the best wings ever designed. Maximum fun and minimum stress. :thumbsup:

Thanks! It's well used in it's previous life as a training glider but it's in good condition. Just needs a good cleaning from it's life helping to raise me from Hang 1 at dusty Tres Pinos!

Wasn't much for the orange/yellow scheme but it grew on me. I even built a Gentle Lady RC glider in the same color scheme in tribute. It really is a well made glider.

Had a Gentle Lady years ago. Great glider. that and a Sky Tiger with a piped Rossi were my personal favorites. That color scheme looks great on both of your wings.

Supersport - she's getting old and delaminated, but will probably keep flying her for a long while.

Same here. Built a gentle lady, spirit, a few zagi's (a zagi is the best wind dummy prior to launch), two bird of times, now an art hobby odyssey. Good stuff.

If you don't count video games, simulators, and those little balsa gliders and rubber band powered things.

Nothing as photogenic as a freshly whacked glider :lol:

Thank you TR + JD for the photos.

The other glider in the pic looks like an Oly 650...one of my favorites. Lord knows how many RC's were built/rebuilt/trashed over the years. I also had a Bird of Time, the big one. Took it to the craters outside of Flagstaff during a demo trip and set up the hi-start. Unfortunately, one of the wing sections came loose just as it took off, effectively becoming a massive spoiler on the that side. The hook on the nose stayed on and it just pounded its way across the desert getting smaller and smaller and smaller...
