The tail became longer.

After the Aero-Expo in Friedrichshafen, Germany, we came to the conclusion that it would be better to add some tail length. The first design would have worked, but... not many pilots trusted the short coupled tail. And what you don't trust ...you don't buy. Here is the new overall look.

The original idea

This is how we started. A short coupled tail. But we saw that a change was needed to gain more confidence from possible builders/pilots.

About BirdGlider

“Going back in time …to the basics” has been my way of thinking for a long time. “Going back in time” might sounds a bit weird. But in the pioneer years of hanggliding, the sport was still for those with some guts, now it has evolved into a sport for those with many bucks. I wanted to go back to those old years. Lets go back to when aviation was still in reach of many. Aviation for the man of the street. I keep that goal high. I want to see YOU in the air.
