The Pegase is the ugliest plastic glider ever.

Not because it has anything wrong with it, it has... nothing. I'ts the most bland glider ever. It was probably designed by a committtee of grandees drawn from the Sorbonne, with a sub-committee to ponder the name. It looks like a semi-scale model blown up to full scale. If the EU designed a glider it'd look like the Pegase.

The Crystal on the other hand was clearly designed by a madman in a bar, half-drunk, chain-smoking Gauloises, who sat up all night sketching frantically on wine-stained drawings, only pausing to shout, "Non! It must be more sexy!" In other words, it is defintely FRENCH. 8)

Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

:D  :D  :D . I hope you have nothing against the ASW 20 since the Pegase is based on it (its a ASW 20 with different wings).

Hi Joe
I think you are almost done and after this nice Retroplane meeting you should highly be motivated. With regard to the design I attached a picture of the one we talked about that week-end. Close to my design but somewhat different anyway.

Cheers
Stephan

Hiya Stephan
Thanks for the motivation!
With work, babies, shop and trying to sell/move house. All building has come to a halt. My workshop is now in boxs  :cry:
Hope to be to do some building work again soon!
Yeah! Fred kindly signed my up for Retroplane next year. Now I have to sign myself up for some French lessons :D. My daughter just started German in school so that might help too! :D
