The Vectors are a great flying glider but I would consider the Carbon Typhoon or Erwin DSS. Better turn of speed, with very nice aero's and when you get bored on the front side you can throw it down the backside for some 200mph plus fun

Hey Rookey, you should come and play some aerotow with us, having a day next Saturday (11th) give me a call if you want.

Howdy Mick. Got an IMAC comp on that day but will come for a play some other time. Have already glued a jolly big blob of lead in the nose of the Vector so wondering if there is a way to fit a tow release at this stage or will I need to drill right through the lead. Not much room in these annorexic gliders to add extras.
