"I have wanted to complete this design ever since flying the first G-V-48. The G-V-60 has all the features of my previous designs and some new ones. The Elliptical EPP tail took weeks of testing to offer it pre-shaped." Steve Drake

G-V-60

 -----   2007  New Tail    ------

To increase the durability of the V tail it now has a Carbon V brace which the tails plug on to. Yep, it travels even better that way and is even easier to build. The tails are provided large allowing you to size them as you like.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

 
Probably the most advanced EPP glider ever designed. With no design compromises that could slow it down, it is rated for Intermediate to Expert pilots and builders. It's like a molded 60" but durable and less expensive. Designed for Slope Racing and Dynamic Soaring
Speed >> Agility >> Durability

Clean lines with semi-elliptical plan-form 

Yes it comes apart for travel You can even make the nose cone removable.
