Re: Kite vs Hang Glider!

My guess is: ... - hang glider pilot overshot his landing spot because there would be lift from the wind off the trees, and because he's not as good as Bille (who was number 4 acro pilot in the world and 2500 professional tandem flights so far better than most pilots in the world :roll: ) ...

Re: Kite vs Hang Glider!
