Wolfgang Pilch of Team Silver in Austria has created one of the most beautifully shot paragliding short films we have ever seen. With highly technical camera angles, full HD widescreen, and some impressive editing, 'Streamlined 08' is destined to become a favorite of any paraglider pilot who likes to think outside the box when it comes to launching techniques and flying maneuvers!
Just when you think that you've seen it all, along comes a film like this to prove that the limits can be pushed even further than before. Our favorite part of this film is watching Wolfgang launch his Octane FLX out the rear door of a twin engine skydiving jump-plane at 90kmh. Watching the Octane FLX shock inflate and then fly through the turbulence behind the massive plane leaves little doubt that the wing is strong and stable! And also that Wolfgang really knows how to D-Bag! Congratulations to Wolfgang for his excellent launches and a very cool film.
We have waited to release the full version of this movie to coincide with the Hobnox Film Challenge. Please go to this link and after watching the film, Vote For It!!! Doing so will help Wolfgang win some money to supplement the budget for another project, which we're sure will be even better.
