A new dream begins... The name is gnuLAB3. A small gnuLAB2 evolution. Possibly same planform, and the same or close aspect ratio. Cells number increased to 31 or 33, is sufficient. A new gnu airfoil, faster and more stable... A behavior objective EN-A. It is difficult to meet the EN-A requirements..., but we have to be as close as possible. Lower surface, as light as possible... Nylon rods in the leading edge work great. Maybe still 4 risers, to facilitate work and play on ground handling. It also facilitates the use of speed system or trimers.

The dream includes the possibility that a manufacturer wants to put it into production, even keeping 100% the GNU concept of freedom, plans free for copying, and modifications included. From here I appeal to any manufacturer who wants to help me build and tune this new project.

Also, if the gnuLAB2 was the mold of the simple surface BarretinaHyperLite (same basic geometry but different profile), the gnuLAB3 will be the mold for the BarretinaHyperLite2.
