    Licking those possums on sticks during an interview just looks wrong, but the trike seems to be very well thought out and a great paddock machine. What's the buffet like when flying fast, Larry?

    Something that is perhaps counterintuitive is the the steeper you pass through gradients, the less effective they have. As well as spending more time in the most critical period of flight, coming in flat with power also tends to encourage a slower ...

    Good brace, looks like a fun piece of water. Hope those trees don't make too many strainers! Nice to see a fellow paddler here.

    Bryan Tuffnell commented on Jim Davidson's Video.
    Another factor is that most of us find it easier to assess where we'll touch down when viewing angles from the side rather than in front. In other words, the off-centreline drift makes it easier for most people to pick whether or not there is ...

    Bryan Tuffnell commented on Frank Dempsey's Video.
    If you fly hang gliders prone (and you don't have to - although it's increasingly rare, supine is an option), a huge factor in comfort and relieving the pain in the neck is having a curve in the profile of bottom of the harness. I used to design and ...

    Neil, I expect to be in your part of the world in 4 to 6 weeks. If you're around we could perhaps catch up for a beer. I'll get in touch closer to the time.

    Bryan Tuffnell commented on Joe Hockman's Video.
    Why, WE, that's lovely... I bet no one would laugh harder than Joe to find that the source of his big good-morning smooch was an affectionate 800 pound grizzly. What luck to have you as a buddy! Good information on battery technology, Joe. The ...
