Lazy Bee Glider Coming Very Soon!

Many of you have mentioned seeing videos of Lazy Bee gliders. I am getting lots of questions about this.  Lazy Bees just  love to soar and glide. People are often surprised by this, but in fact,  Lazy Bees have a very low sink rate and good glide ratio. Converting a Lazy Bee into a glider is a natural next step.    All Lazy Bees inherently glide well. Our new Lazy Bee Glider, with its streamlined nose, glides even better. It's very well-suited for slope-soaring but can also be used for thermal gliding.  The kit is a Lazy Bee kit with the extra parts and plans so that it can be made into a Lazy Bee Glider. It still has Original Lazy Bee wing options. I recommend building the 40" wing for slope soaring/windy conditions, and the 48" wing for thermal gliding/calm conditions.  I expect pricing to be about $125 or thereabouts. Hope to have kits up for sale in the next week. A subkit will be available, but it is only useful if you have an unbuilt Lazy Bee.
