Default Alula

Saw some cool videos on the Alula I really like the shape. Are these kits unavailable? Cant seem to find them on the Dream Flight pages.
Thanks

This design is reminescent of Larry Renger's Toucan sloper (attached pic) from many years back.
I had a chance to fly one briefly; remarkably stable, and a lot of fun to fly.

Mate, I've been through a couple of these and they are great. Keep it light and small throws and you will get hours of use. Also great on small slopes with a light breeze.
