These are flat out awesome. I bought one when Bill imported a bunch of them. I really like the build quality. Take a look at the build video:

Thanks Josh, that looks like a really nice design. Will you all be flying it at St. Luke's in the near future?

Hi Bill, you have built many low ceiling gliders, what is your overall opinion of the model?

Indoor gliders need to be built for the venue where they're going to be flown. For St. Lukes you need to get into the high part and that requires a glider than can fly small circles and have pinpoint accuracy on launch. I don't think this is an ideal glider for St. Lukes.

In a more wide open site I've seen some amazing flights with this and similar gliders. Times in the low 50's have been flown in sites around 12 meters. This is comparable to the best UCLG flights at Rantoul which is a little higher.

But so far I haven't seen any Cat 1 flights that rivaled either Stan's AMA HLG record or the F1N World Record.

There's all kinds of info on Facebook in the Everything About F1N group.
