.: Liftworx Swyft

 
The Liftworx Swyft is a small wingtip launched glider under 5 oz. On flat land I can fly it for about a minute, but on the slope my record so far is 1 hour. I could have flown it longer, but I was getting tired.
Here is a video of the Swyft. You must have Windows Media Player in order to view them.

My modified version of the Discuss Launch
I call it the frisbee launch.
 
It's hard to see from the photo, but this was taken after my hour long flight using the slope at Marine Creek. Notice the 59 minutes on the timer on the transmitter
