New Wills Wing T2, new Woody Valley Tenax 2, ohh what a perfect day.

Today I finally got the my new glider, a T2 with very possible options; UVM sail, 12 mm battens, slipstream uprights, and carbon leading edge inserts. This morning Alf, the Norwegian WW deal, and I went to Sundvollen to assemble the short packed glider and to test fly. The assembly was easy and then rigging and I was ready to fly the glider, and the harness, for the first time. The first I noticed with the glider, besides from that it looks smashing, was the light weight.

T2 and Tenax 2

I launched in 0-wind, but the glider was still easy to start. The light weight made it easy to lift the glider and start the launch run. In the air the glider had light handling, and a lot more speed and energy than my old 2002 model Litespeed. Also sink and glide seemed very improved, but this is difficult to judge not flying alongside another glider.

    Ahh – another duct tape speed machine enters the sky. Perfect color coordination with the harness. Well done! Get a camera on that glider.
