Here's a few pics of the model gliders I build and fly.

These are very special gliders built for speed. All composite airframes, loaded full of extra weight, flown in super high winds.

We fly giant circles on the backsides of mountains, a new form of soaring discovered where energy is gained, not lost. Planes are locked into 100G circuits.

My friends and I hold the world speed record for ALL model aircraft, powered or not.

The WR at present is 392mph! These are Sustained speeds, NOT dives.

Youtube search for "dynamic Soaring world record" brings up many, many very amazing videos. Check it out! These are UNpowered gliders, powered by the wind, and maintaining the round circuits.
