There are other higher performing hlg's and there are places on the net to promote them but this group is for those who want to build the Bug. Personally I have a Gambler, XP-3 poly and XP-3 aileron dlg. They are all better performing than the Bug but when I'm just flying for fun, I still like flying my four ounce Bug. The small size and light weight makes it unique. Last Saturday was an great day and I got a 12:37, a 12:13, and a 9:35 minute flight. My Gambler got me an easy 15 minute flight but the flights with the Bug were more of an accomplishment and more fun. The Bug will never be a competition hlg but it is fun combined with the fact that launching this light weight glider is a lot less stressful on my old body.
