Default winglets for LS-1

A friend of mine is considering installing winglets on his LS-1C. Has
anyone ever seen or heard of an LS-1 with winglets? Is there a
retro-fit installation for winglets available? I know that the Libelle
has a winglet kit, so perhaps the LS-1 has one too.

Cheers,
Brad

Brad,

Tell your friend he would ruin the exquisite lines
of the LS1-c if the tacky winglets were installed.

While I don't know of any, I suppose Hansjorg Streifeneder
could construct them. His web page is:

If your friend is looking for a performance improvement
for the old bird, let him know I think the best 'tweak'
would be with the addition of a nice Cobra (or Komet)!!!

Try contacting Afandi Darlington. I read he could provide winglets for
any type of glider.

As far as I know, this is his company:
