If you have additional information (ex: specificity of piloting, various characteristics...) on the hang glider Condor by UP Ultralight Products, you can supplement his card by adding your comment or write to us :
I flew the UP Condor in the late 70s. The glider was what I will Call a typical floater.
It flew very slowly, and the wires were very slack before I came airborne. Bud easy to fly.
Could it be the legendary HG-pilot Ed Cesar who is in the Picture together With the Condor?
Condor was a ease hang glider to fly and help you on fly( like a mother). I use to have a Condor size 151 great hang glider.
Size of UP Condor: 151, 174, 192 and 224
One of the most memorable flights I had was in a Condor. Very much a floater and easy to fly.
Could be Ed, though the person in the photo looks a bit to bulky to be Cesar.
Not sure about "legendary".
The Condor was a 1977ish glider. I'm currently converting film of mine to digital from a 1977 hang gliding meet in Southern OR. Pete Brock, of Ultralite Products, also attended that Starthistle meet. He brought with him his newest glider, the UP Condor. They were indeed a nice floater and the guys Pete brought with him did a great job of showing that. I was flying a Bill Bennet Phoenix 8sr, that's how I know it was 1977ish.
