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! Instinct Hang Gliding Selfie Camera Boom http://instinct.pro/Selfie https://www.facebook.com/InstinctSelfie A must watch video: https://vimeo.com/58137468#t=187s First off, we designed separate mounts for Carbon basetubes.

Now an official Moyes dealer

Now an official Moyes dealer

I'm happy to say that Instinct is now an official Moyes hang glider dealer. Mark has flown Moyes gliders exclusively since his first high performance glider back in 1998 and continues to fly a Moyes Litesport as his personal glider of choice. Moyes is known for it's high-end competition topless glider, the LitespeedRX, considered to be the Ferrari of the hang gliding world. Moyes has also recently started producing and distributing the Metamorphosi Conar parachutes. Ryan and Mark have been flying with those reserve chutes for well over a decade but they haven't been manufactured for almost that long...it's great...
