Wow a nose nappy on a Single Surface Glider, feel the performance, ha ha. Soaking wet within an hour of arrival. Yay UK Weather.

The centre lufflines hang off the rear kingpost wire on a sliding thingy, interesting...

Here you can see where the hang point clips into the King Post. The whole glider is held together with these spring loaded buttons.

Here for example is one of the spring loaded push buttons on the crosstube. The tubes are incredibly light with the exception of the Kingpost, Keel and Uprights and Base Bar, I am guessing that over half the weight of aluminium comes from these heavy parts..
