FLX.3 Video Teaser from the Movie ‘Airstripped’
Felix Rodriguez recently shot some footage with Wolfgang Pilch, who made the celebrated free-flight movie, ‘Streamlined 08’. Click here if you have not yet seen that.
Wolfgang’s next project is for a new movie, titled ‘Airstripped’, which will include footage of a wide variety of air sports. For the acro paragliding section, Felix Rodrigyez will be showing us how it’s done with his FLX.3.
For more footage of Felix and his FLX.3, see below:
Ozone Team Pilot, Felix Rodriguez, recently visited the UK where he performed several days of flight demos at the Lakes Charity Classic, aka Buttermere Bash. This year’s event, which benefits charity, benefited from splendidly warm weather and light winds, perfect for the almost nonstop acro show.
Felix climbed to 10,000 feet in a Gazelle helicopter, and then completed 185 Infinite Tumbles before running out of altitude and flying back to the event – amazing Felix, nice work! Felix says that the FLX.3 is perhaps the easiest glider he has attempted the Infinite Tumble with, and although he makes 185 of them look easy, we’re sure it will require a bit of practice from the rest of us.
Check out the video here (showing all 185 tumbles). https://www.blip.tv/file/3719582
And in case you were wondering, there is a rare breed of pigeon that is equally versed in the art of the infinite tumble, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGwDOzpTcgs
Cheers from all the Team, and fly safely!
