This is a quick video I took a couple weeks ago of Jon's new Glider.  This is the one taken to AKA...as well as others.... "Simply Old School" music...

Jon wanted to get something on film that day.  The wind was very low.  The minute we started to video...up came the winds.  The drogue actually helps the kite in low wind.  Jon will be posting some Indoor video any day now. Wayne is working on the video.  It's a real beauty of a glider.  Not sure how many he has left.  Need to pressure him on he Ten Foot Sports kite.  He might do it a production of 15 if bugged enough...

 Ordered..... They have a very few left...

  • Red, purple and black
  • Lime, grape and teal x 2
  • Red, white and blue
  • Flo yellow, rubin red and black
Very comparable price for a glider like these

I got one of these Aerolite gliders from Jon at the recent AKA convention. Mine's red with white heart and black tips. I flew it last night w its little drogue (red and black) in 3-8 mph. Love it. Flies delicately yet stably. As usual, great build quality. It was fun to watch Jon fly it without drogue at the Indoor event, very light and responsive.
