Default LINKS! Sailplane, Hotliner, Slope, Pylon, HLG, Thermal Duration

Since we've added the "High Performance" category to the "Sailplane" Forum, I thought it might be a good idea to provide as many links to the various distributors as possible. Here's a few;

I found this site today when I was looking through www.glider.dk .
www.aerodesign.de it is a German site. There is only a little english in the aerofoil section. It has F3b/f/j/k, F5b/f ,F5d and S400 and has a variety of wing's.
It's in 3 view plan.

Default Because I'm too lazy to go through them all

Does anyone know which of those include flying wing sailplanes in their catalog(s)?

I thought a sailplane would be a great starting point for a new RC'er. I have now modified my Radian (Now a RAD because it is shortenec by 4") too many crashes
