I like the custom black border inlay within the fluorescent lime. Very nice!

NICE I like :thumbsup:

Roughly what are we likely to pay for a similar new glider ?
At the moment the US$ is sliding away from NZ $, but on the other hand closing in on with the Aust $.
Therefore I need to compare apples with apples.

The Litespeed and T2C are pretty close in price, Apples to Apples. this glider has a bunch of little custom options including fabric, sail design, sewn with all black thread, etc. That push the price. This glider also has some options that aren't on a Litespeed, like the speed battens and raked tips. if you get the two gliders built with similar options, the price is pretty close.

Beautiful! I hope to see it Friday at WS.
BTW, you look shorter in the first picture than I remember.

First pics of my new Horizon 180, I picked it up Saturday morning. Sorry about the crummy iphone pictures, I hope to have some better ones with a better camera soon!

I flew it from the 125ft training hill, I didn't notice much difference in launch from the Falcon, but sure noticed a difference in the air! This thing glides! At trim, it seems like it few twice as far as a Falcon, and it surely will fly faster on a speed run. Turns were nice and easy. My first two landings were firm wheel landings, but after that I got it sorted and had some nice foot landings. I cleared in six flights, broke down, and headed to the mountain. Sadly, with that tropical storm off the east coast we had tailing winds the rest of the day Saturday and on and off rain Sunday. So, hopefully I'll fly her from the mountain next weekend.

Very nice looking glider!
I also love the garage wall mount, very neat. I would put some padding, extremely cheap at the Home Depot, http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-3-4 ... 760815-_-N

I would go one simple step further, and make it a real shelf. Use inexpensive 1x12, or plywood, or many other materials you might already have around the house to provide your wing with continuous support. While full-length support isn't good for transport, it's the best for storage. You've already got the brackets up - finish the job and make your glider very happy.

Here's my bought-used WW Sport 2 155, it flies fantastic =). The RC glider is a Flyzone Calypso with a Turnigy GliderDrive 1120kv motor and a CC Thunderbird 36 ESC. Both are regulars in the skies over Fort Funston. 8)
