A nice new one from our friend in Stockholm, Tobias “Fluffracka” Jönsson and his Telink Multifun. Tobias was an early adopter of what came to be known as “ultrabatics” and with his modified Multifun you can see he really grasps the core of the style: smooth flow through sequences of chained figures, demonstrating the possibilities of an ultralight, ultramaneuverable, ultradurable glider. And what a beautiful flying site, too! Great job Tobias
Here’s a cool story: Alex Hewson and friends hail from New Zealand and Australia and were here in the States on a slope soaring holiday to check out DS sites and get some new personal best top speeds recorded. They stopped by WeaselFest on Sunday and Alex took control of John “Big Gas” Scahill’s VTPR -modded Multifun (with larger, TP42 airfoiled wing) as well as one of Dan McCleary’s Shark VTPR gliders. Some really nice flying ensued! Great job Alex and thanks for the visit, you’re welcome back any time
This is some video from the past weekend of John “Big Gas” Scahill flying his modified Telink Multifun. He cut a new wing for it with a TP42 airfoil, then covered it in “New Stuff” laminating film. The results speak for themselves! This is easily the best-performing Multifun I’ve seen yet, and has turned the plane into a very capable VTPR aerobat. Great job, John!
My good friend Chris van Schoor of Ireland has been flying the Telink Multifun for a while now and has begun using a keyfob camera to capture some footage. Here’s his first video effort, where he’s gotten some very nice VTPR flying in with the lovely Irish landscape in the background. It came out great! Music is Ríl a Dó by the band Kila.
Another Multifun video, this time from that man in South Wales, Cliff Hanger. He filmed this three years ago. The Multifun has been given shrink covering in order to increase its weight and energy retention. I think the results are quite nice!
