FREE FLIGHT WINGS
BHL2-16 evo updated to 2021
. Includes all parts in A4 format to print.
Fixed an unintentionally bug added in all previous LEparagliding "Z"
versions: All VH-ribs between ribs "0" and "1" had incorrect geometry
(!) Due to not putting the negative sign at the angles "beta" and "
rot_z " on the rib number " 0 " (the symmetrical rib on the "1").
Affects exclusively the VH-straps located inside the central cell.
Fixed already in new version 3.16+
I found yet another error in defining type 1 horizontal straps. Their
width is TWICE multiplied by the overall scale factor of the wing. In
this version, this is not modified, to be able to more easily update
the wings calculated with 3.16.

GG Hang Glider Update
2021-08-08: "Last Monday I
moved the project to the farm of the aforementioned friend and on
Thursday afternoon I was able to advance a little, (see attached power
point) slide the sail over the leading edges
and also make the keel pocket. It begins to encourage me to continue to
be able to see the shape of the Rogallo.
In two more weeks - if I can- I return to the farm to continue to cut and assemble all the 3/32" SS tensioning cables
