New Selfie Camera Mounts for 2015

New Selfie Camera Mounts for 2015

With over 100 sold world-wide and to fuel our ever-growing desire for Selfies, we thought we'd improve them for 2015!

They fit super tight and can be left on your basetube between flights. Our boom screws in to the base and can be panned at will during flight. The new design minimizes camera bounce. Wolfi and Jonas are the first to use these on their Rhythm of Flight project (http://www.rhythmofflight.com/) Secondly, we just finished a new, two-piece basetube...

Glider Selection - and other fundamental information

In preparation of the upcoming flying season, I've been talking to lots of last year's students and helping them make decisions into getting their own gear to continue on with their flying. It's not an easy process and of course there are many routes to go and may opinions to consider. There is a healthy discussion going on right now on the OzReport that you should find interesting...it was initiated by a new hang gliding student trying to figure out their first glider to fly. There are many interesting comments from some very respected individuals in our sport...a worthwhile read....
