Come and visit the BirdGlider at the Aero-Expo in hall B4 from 15-18 April 2015.
To make the first flights of the BirdGlider, i need a place where i can be towed a few hundred meters behind a car. A training hill to roll off and a way to get airborne for a higher flight. I plan to visit such a place with prototype #01 and stay there for a week in a hotel or bed and breakfast. Who can help me to find such a perfect testing area? I WAS OFFERED A SOLUTION HERE. BUT CANNOT TELL MORE.
Sadly it will not be possible to be at Airventure this year. The prototype will not be ready in time. The builder had some problems that delayed the build up and the transport of the parts, which i dismounted from prototype 01 for this assembly arrived toooo late. Nor Aldo, nor me were to blame for both problems. I will be at Airventure as a visitor. I guess you will recognize me with my black T-shirt with BirdGlider logo on the back and Nest of Dragons logo at the front. Feel free to ask me questions. Any way ...the USA adventure still goes on. BirdGlider will miss Airventure, but ...there is something else being prepared which will not pass by unnoticed. :)
Jorge, known as Sstorch Ge Storch Ge on Facebook, told me yesterday that the materials for the BirdGlider prototype arrived at his workshop. So ...the building of the first flyable prototype can begin ...at last. We had to wait 3/4 year for these materials to arrive. But it is getting for real now. Jorge is studying the plans now. He will make all the parts by hand. We will keep you informed of the progress on the website. The FREE plans can still be found on this website.
