WW Falcon 3

Thursday, March 29th, 2007

As WW has still to join the civilized metric system I needed to borrow some inch tools from Alf, the Norwegain WW dealer, to fit the WW wheels to the speedbar on my T2. So I drove over to him today to borrow the tools and at the same time Alf was unwrapping the first WW Falcon 3 here in Norway. I was curious to see the new F3 so I stayed to help him with the assembly and rigging to see of the glider was OK. It was interesting to see the new F3. It had lots of  small improvements, but the major difference was the sail. The F3 has a much tighter sail than the F2, and looser under rig/wires. Hope to test fly one of these soon.
