1. This is a 11.5 oz glider, very light, it was very windy and the VTPR was in yer face and epic.
    A worth addition to the hanger.
    'Swissing' is the removing material from the wings to lower weight, improve flight performance and most importantly look very cool!

  2. It was a beautiful late evening sunset, and some chance to test the sweasel in some very light lift conditions.
    Some flocks of birds flew over the slope a number of times, and the sweasel chased them.
    Stunning light made the evening.
    'Sweasel is Swiss Weasel' a moditication of a glider to include swissing.

  3. Right, now ive got your attention.

    The wind was 20mph, perfect for the Swiss Fish but it stayed in the car the whole time, the culprit, the sweasel. It loves it when its windy. Some experimention with the video track and some unusual effects on this one, and yes the pin up is on the video, not just the title page.

    Swissing is the removing of material from the wings to make the airframe lighter and to improve performance.

  4. Had a fantastic day flying the swiss fish in about 15-20 mph wind.

    Superb little plane. Even in quite a lot of wind.
