  • Prize Numbers 36, 37 and 38 are simply a work of art! Dimitre Avramov has generously donated three of his ‘own design’ and very desirable 1/2″ Birch Plywood Glider Stands. Each stand comes apart quickly and stores flat for transportation and once assembled this smart looking device comfortably supports 3 sailplanes off the ground. Dimitre’s son Stoil is a junior on the USA Team and we are very thankful for this excellent donation.PlaneStand5


  • Prize Numbers 39, 40, and 41. – Curtis Suter of Tailwind Gliders has donated one each of his three very informative building DVDs. – Curtis is a very accomplished full size pilot and expert model builder and has given back to the hobby of RC Soaring by compiling these great technical videos to help make you into an expert builder too. The Team recently met Curtis at the F3J in the Desert contest and he was seen there flying a home built F5J sailplane where all the techniques chronicled in his videos were used to create a very nice flying electric.
    1st up is “A beginners guide to Cutting and Bagging Foam Wings.” 2nd is “A Beginners Guide to Composite Pod and Boom Fuselages” and 3rd is Curtis’s newest creation “DLG and ALES build – (Using Fundamental Composite Methods.)” Thank you Curtis for giving back to the community.
