New Mini GT for 2006
The new Mini GT was launched for the first time April 15. Got on plane without a fuss. Promptly reached 42 mph downwind and 43-44 mph into a stiff breeze. I couldn't be more thrilled. Looking forward to making some adjustments and doing more testing.

Right side up!
The carpentry is done.
A bit of paint brings it all together....
Ready for rigging! Is it spring yet??
Finally, outside and on the trailer.
First test, April 15, 2006. Already 3-4 mph faster than the Tunnel Mite!
