If you like small balsa gliders then you will love our rudder-elevator Spinnin' Birdy
. Convenient size, low sink speed, and a "built-in" thermal sniffer. This CNC and laser cut balsa and carbon kit is quick to build and flies excellently,
If you are on a slope any no one can fly you are okay with the Spinnin` Birdy! A relaxed twist and this 1m (40") DLG almost vanishes upwards in with straight climb to the heavens. Even in totally dead air flight times of one minute are the rule. A few years ago we only dreamed of performance like this and now anyone can experience it.
Have you always wanted to participate in a discus launched glider competition? But the financial cost was too great? Now you can enter a DLG event and fly with the pros without breaking the bank.
Even if you are not sure you want to make full 360 degree launches you can make 180 degree SAL throws and still get a good height.
Just try it.
