Hang Glide Simulator

What started out as a Red Bull Flugtag project quickly became a usable Hang Glide Simulator for teaching new students.

The issue with learning to fly hang gliders is that the controls are weight shift vs moving control surfaces.

From the pilots perspective to fly a hang glider you must shift your weight to move: left, right, up, down, the "stick" movements are opposite direction.

Flugtag design work using OpenVSP Aero.
