We had a good session on Frocester this morning - where were you? The wind was between SW and WSW mostly, which meant that sometimes it was working on the west face making landing difficult. The picture is Ross's homebrew, about 2 years old. Veneered foam wing and GFRP fuselage, working rudder with closed loop. Probably around 60" span - certainly bigger than a Zagi.
