When will a mimic of the 1908 W. Simon legally protected battened flex-wing cable-stayed triangle control bar (A-framed) fitted foot-launch hang glider show at Docweiler Hang Gliding Flight Training Center? Honor our heritage! Do you appreciate your triangle control frame? Do you enjoy hanging behind your A-frame? W. Simon was one of earlier users of such mechanical simplicity for foot-launch hang gliding.

When will something like this occur again at Dockweiler?
Near 5-ft packed HG being flown as ballast on the back of a hang glider pilot flying a copy of what was backpacked?
Eddie Paul special showing imaged here.

Consider adding air beam LE along with reflexed sail-inset battens along with reflex upper stay lines.
Such direction was an early start for the 5-ft-packed-HG movement.
