manufactured by Dean Aldinger Sacramento Ca


I knew Dean Aldinger and saw him fly this particular model in the 70's. He didn't make a lot of that model and the tips were heavy IMO. I remember him flying the first prototype of this model at the water towers in Granite Bay, California. This model is not one I would consider very safe except under the mildest conditions. It was high performace for it's time but nto especially stable.


Just to be correct that was flown at Rocklin, Ca. not Granite Bay. Also IIRC the nose angel was 105 degrees. Too long ago to remember other specs. Dean was a great hang glider builder but lost some friends that were flying his hang gliders and quit building. Great pilot too but I can't blame him for getting out of building them after several tragedies.


I knew dean very well and was there when his test pilots were killed in Vallejo. I didn't know he flew in Rocklin or Granite Bay, mostly he was in Vallejo, next to the rest area above Marine World. This glider wasn't stable, which is why he stopped making it. He made a lot of innovations incorporated into later models. I believe he is now flying Sail planes in Minden Nv. DrB


BTW, I have an Dinger Wings Super 90 with over 350 hours on it and it is still like new. It was make in 1976, Dean made some pretty good Kites.


Hey Guys,

This is Joe Nelson former Hang 4 from back in the day. Dean built my last kite after I left True Flight. It was A Super 110. The last big contest I got into with it was at Lookout Mountain. It came down between a Moyes and my Dinger Wing. Well I came out on top. Dean was one of the best. BTW I talked to him back a few years ago and he was messing with sailplanes.

[Traduction du commentaire original en Anglais]
J'ai travaillé pour Dean Aldinger à Dinger Wings pendant plusieurs années. Le Sting Ray était notre copy du Dragon Fly de UP, et que nous avons mis sur le marché quelques semaines après avoir vu le Dragon Fly pour la 1° fois aux Nationaux à Escape Country. J'ai joué le spectateur curieux, questionnant les pilotes UP sur divers aspects de leur nouvelle aile afin de faciliter la re-création chez Dinger Wings, Oui, cette époque a définitivement repoussé les limites en combinant performance et stabilité.
