At 39 seconds you see a mother Sherpa giving birth to a baby Sherpa
A big Jim Walker A-J throw glider.
Now to go find one that has been " thrown away," mount an engine on it, repack the ballistic chute and see if it makes apt. 103 weight! Folding wings and all. Wonder when those will start showing up at Milit. Surplus auctions, or on EBay! Most will be likely marked as USMilitary and be destroyed after use or release.
Pity, add landing gear and power plant, you may have a neat " military" bird. Wonder if you could park it with the warbirds at Oshkosh?
"I bought this Marine glider from DRMO, put a Rotax on the nose. It flies fine, but there's something screwy with it. No matter where I take off, it tries to crash at 29 Palms."
Lat I heard it was 29 Stumps, not that I've been there, closest I've been is MCLB Termo. And you never no it might try to go to MCAS Yuma
Having lived in Nepal for a while, I found the title of this thread a bit confusing for a moment. ;-)
