update
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."
