Got to fly a few gliders yesterday. Falcon, Flitz2, and the Auri. My buddy was flying the other Auri and Alpha. All of the gliders found lift, the flitz2 got to see 815’ AGL. Before I got worried and put some flaps in, nosed down, and spiraled back down. As it was going up around 500’ it climbed super fast, and since there were no clouds I imagine the inversion layer was essentially unlimited. Way cool. My buddy had the alpha join me (lower) and we had eagles and a raven bombing over to ride the free elevator. Super duper outing.

Thanks! The falcon is from Ukraine through HQ composites, Flitz2 is from Lithuania , and the Auri is from Russia. They all do beautiful artwork on their models! Nikolai Gorban is back at production in his shop in Ukraine which is good to hear. I just so happen to run across the Flitzebogen (Flitz) manufacture history and found it a good read and was also intrigued that oleg golidov had some design input (designed the falcon as well). Oleg is a good guy and have purchased the Falocn and Flitz2 through him.
