Thanks for the link. Interesting to flip through the photos to see the evolution in products since starting in Sep 2016. Also fun to see the machines and equipment used in a garage operation.

Simikar to stringy wings, i think the only secret sauce here is that simple works just fine. For free ride needs you don't need complex curves and expensive carbon. Performance is adequate with easy to work with materials. ...and bonus is they are extremely durable.

Extra bonus: even a doofus like me can make workable g10 wings with basic tools. Belt sander. Palm sander. Drill. Jigsaw with carbide blade. A few hours of sanding is all that's needed. Though it is messy work.

A buddy of mine just received a set. He suspects the profile changes as it progresses to the tip. Might be an interesting concept to go from an epler then to a naca...the combos could be endless....hit on the right one and LF wants to know about it...
