Paige Anderson of Future Slope Designs has created the new version of the Flow, which he is calling the Flow 2.0. It is one of the first commercially-available “shovelbats” in the style of the Aero-Glide collaboration between Michael Richter and myself. First video of the Flow 2.0 above – looks really fun! Read more on the FSD Facebook Page. Nice work Paige!
Justin “JGAF” Gafford maidened his heavily modded, psychedelic-themed Future Slope Designs Flow yesterday at Bluff Park in Long Beach and it looks like he had a blast. He won the plane in the 2012 Video Contest (1st Place – VTPR) and built it using techniques learned from his experience building with Peter Richner – resulting in a finished flying weight of 16.5oz for its 72″ wingspan (not bad!!). His friends and roommates contributed Sharpie art to give it a one-of-a-kind finish that looks amazing. This was the maiden flight and it’s already flying great – when he gets it fully dialed in it should be awesome. Great job Justin!!
I’m so stoked! This is the Flow, created by Paige Anderson of Future Slope Designs. It is the result of a journey beginning many years ago now for Paige, and the culmination of countless hours of research and refinement. It is a plane designed precisely to suit the needs of the UltraBatics movement and I’m tremendously excited by its potential. The initial run of pre-orders sold out immediately but the next batch should be available soon. If you’re looking to jump into UltraBatics, you’d be crazy not to seriously consider the Flow – it looks like it can do it all. I can’t wait to fly one!
