A short time ago I posted a "Link" thread for higher-priced Gliders and E-Gliders. Somehow this site was left off, a serious omission on my part since this near the top of the line for hand-built, all-composite, very competitive Thermal Duration, 3m, 2.5m, 2m, Discus Launch + E-Powered Gliders, both thermal + Hotliner. If you've heard of contest-winners with names like Graphite, AVA, Organic, Sonic, Supra, Solo DLG, Mini Graphite, this is where to get'em! Just about all feature the latest airfoils and the photo close-ups of the construction have to be seen to be believed. There are also thumbnail 3-views and construction downloads with many composite-building tips. Options like "V" or "Cross" tail, glass, carbon or kevlar molding, full or partial D-Box wings, Flaps, extra fuselages (Electric or non-powered) and more.
As you might expect, these features don't come cheap. One example, the Graphite Fully D-Box, 3.1m Cross-Tail Electric is $743 U.S. Want to upgrade? The new Graphite 2, molded carbon, cross-tail electric is $965.U.S. Prices range from $220 (DLG) to $1200.
