Flight #4 in supine, so far so good — but a long way to go yet. Tiny first flare.. taking it all in baby steps.



Here's #3 showing a performance comparison (same wing, same air, same line).

Hey Fletch!

Yes flew with one a couple of times, but I figure it could easily enough get tangled and cause problems... turns to be more comfy resting the old feet on the bar anyways.

That Looked like some Good Fun. I would like to experience flying like that.

I can't reach the basebar at all when reclining in the seat, hence the handle thingies. Have now popped a cleat on them for the VG rope too.. glider is a Sting3
