KGARS - Kiting Glider Automatic Relase System by Karl Striedieck[_2_]
Richard Green of the Wycombe Test Group, High Wycombe, Bucks. UK designed and tested an auto release and offered to sell me one back in 1980. His long hand letter to me said that he was "an old age pensioner" so maybe he and his BGA certified release are something of history. The engineering blue...

L 33 Solo Gliders by Nick Kennedy[_3_]
In the W&W Claasifieds there is a L33 Solo listed for 13K Canadian, that about 9400 USD. I read Dick Johnsons flight report and he liked it, he was concerned that it had very little aerodynamic stall warning and would readily drop into a spin. He thought it best if low timers had real spin...
