Topless Gliders.

So you think modern gliders with no kingposts or upper rigging a new idea? Not true.
The first glider I flew was also a topless design (the kingpost etc. was an optional extra). However, the designers had a fantastically simple and novel approach to handling negative loading… Don’t subject the glider to negative loading.

Don’t you just love ’70s hang gliding?
