In the video it looks like a leaf on a string

Is there any video of any attempt at a glide ?

Any thought on compararison to a  Horvath Ninja. Or a Emong ?

Thank you

The 6-81 is not much of a glider....not meant to be...it is more designed for quick turns and effortless climbing....

Well...i asked Stephen Hoath a while back about where the design for the Bai came from....he told me that he and Karl worked together on it.........
(the weird thing is that Karl denied that to me when i asked him about it)....
I have flown a Bai and the 6-81 is much better...lighter...bigger...better flyer....better floats....slower movements...can take more wind....
