A new video from the indomitable master of slope aerobatics, François Cahour, flying his own-design Troll. Very nice – watch for the cool spin reversals
Nice video that came across the VTPR & Slope Aerobatics Facebook group… Gaz flying the Hacker Vagabond 1500. Nice!
My friend Pierre-Arnaud, the creative genius behind the incredible videos produced by Noisy Skies, recently visited Santa Barbara and we met up to shoot some video. He has given the video his usual professional-level treatment and I’m very impressed with the result! Nice job P-A!! It was awesome to get to meet you and I hope to see you again soon
Justin “JGAF” Gafford testing out a couple new ultrabatic gliders at Dave’s Beach in Carlsbad: the 36″ Funky Bipe and the 52″ Swank. Check it out – cool!
A new one from Phil Taylor:
“Finally a chance to get the Kulbutin going in some fairly decent air on my local Devon slope on Sunday. Yes, it flips, yes it multiflips, yes, it outside multiflips ! But its also heavy & can get some speed on for some smoooooooth moves – and does insane flicks. Great fun, with a rather unusual “landing”. Music by Dave Stewart & Candy Dulfer – “Lily Was Here” – one I rediscovered recently.”
Pierre Rondel has uploaded a video of he and his clubmate flying a couple of the new Hacker Vagabond 1500 EPP aerobatics gliders. He reports conditions were a little strong and turbulent for VTPR but he seemed to really enjoy the glider! A very nice demonstration of the design’s capabilities.
Justin “JGAF” Gafford has built a biplane version of his Buzz aerobatics glider, and it flies great!! This is easily one of the most exciting new designs I’ve seen in a long time – biplane gliders are extremely rare, and this one performs really great. Excellent design, construction and flying by JGAF for sure!!
Here’s what appears to be the first video of the Vagabond 1500 by Hacker Model. The plane seems to fly nicely, and looks like it can perform flips with the supplied Madstab -style stabilizer. Very nice! I have one arriving any day and will do a full review.
