It's videos like this that keep making me want to build a Goat.

But then I realize I have no glider training, I'm not sure if it's flyable around here (we have no seaside cliffs or any other hills to speak of), and no launch support anywhere (I'd need to add an engine).:depressed

This one might interest you. Use a 4-wheeler to launch, electric to extend.

Plans for vintage primary glider with simple cockpit enclosure here free to download:

Segelfleugzeug


A note: I put the link for you not to induce actual building of this particular type of glider, but with suggestion to just study the plan and learn about history of gliders. Thesedays we can build better, but we should not forget the roots!


Have fun!

Regards!
