[vc_column width="3/4"][vc_accordion behavior="true" animate="none" open="1" delay="0"][vc_accordion_tab title="How is the hang glider controlled?"][vc_column_text animate="none" delay="0"]The hang glider is controlled by weight shift. By moving the position at where your body hangs allows us to alter the balance of the glider, which allows it to go where we want. You will be surprised at how much control this gives us.
If you like you are welcome to try flying the glider yourself after launching.
