Hi All,
I am wanting to give DLG a go, but at 61 with back and leg injuries not sure if I will manage.
My question is does any one know of a reasonable priced model that I can purchase to give it a go.
Would prefer one I can drop my gear in but would consider a kit if that's all that's going.
Have dropped David a line as well as I live in Feilding and would like some guidance in the launch technique.
Many thanks and Cheers

There is a fair crew of us from Dunedin South that have decent DLG gliders but we could all

I'd say you might get 3-4 from Invercargill if it was held somewhere central - i.e. Gore area?
