No updraft needed, just enough speed from rolling down the hill. I hope no one was down below when he rolled the rock off the hill at the end of the clip, though.

The type was mentioned in the video, but I forgot already.


Highlander airplane

right in the print on the video page




http://www.justaircraft.com/news.php



HIGHLANDER Our most popular aircraft,the Highlander has the same great features as its predecessor the Escapade, but with all the great upgrades to make it the ultimate back country aircraft. The Highlander is manufactured with all high quality aircraft materials. It is also manufactured with attach points for floats, lots of cabin area and extra large cargo area to haul everything you need. It can carry passengers 6'7" tall and 250#,s--No problem!! So get in and lets go have some fun!

See our Build Manual here!




Just take a few hours a Saturday and you can have your very own Highlander.
