DIY Paraglider takes to the skies!


We came across this story on wired.com, about a young South African man who made his own Paraglider from Fertilizer Bags and baling wire. By all accounts, the home made Paraglider did not travel to far, but did allow Cyril Mazibuko to drift up a hill (while pointing into the wind) and to descend down a gentle incline, in no wind conditions. Cyril is now a qualified Paraglider Pilot and takes part in local competitions - a true adventurer!
