Report Rest Day: World Cup Superfinal - Mexico Valle de Bravo 2011

Gin Gliders' factory test pilot Seyong Jung reports from Mexico.

After 5 tasks we finally had some bad weather, so today was a chance to think about the events of the past few days.

Housi made a great start by winning the first task, but in following days the wing didn't match our initial expectation and we noticed a loss of performance. Following investigation, we found some line shrinkage problems that have caused the glider to go out of trim. This affects both the performance and recovery characteristics.

We will rectify this line problem before production of the serial wings begins.

We remain confident that the Boomerang X will be suitable for a much wider range of pilots than just elite competition pilots. - Seyong
