"Teaser 3: OOTR13 (5M) Taken by Storm"
 
  
"This glider is amazing," Korra said, looking up from her inspection of same. "It's so light!" She grinned and added, "I bet you can really move with this thing."

Lhakpa grinned. "Isn't it great? Ryo and I worked together on it. His idea - sort of a melding of a proven design and the latest materials. The main body and wing frames are all carbon fiber, and the membranes are some kind of memory fabric they originally developed for United Forces tents, of all things. It's activated by electricity. The glider works without it, but with the power turned on the wings get a lot stiffer - it'll really carry an updraft. More maneuverable, too." She reddened slightly. "Sorry. I don't mean to brag, but it's hard not to get excited about my gear."

"Hey, don't apologize, this is awesome," said Korra. Nudging her with an elbow, she went on, "So what's the fastest you've gone?"

"Well, it's not like I have an airspeed indicator," Lhakpa said wryly, "but at a guess.... I'd say around a hundred and twenty."

Korra blinked. "Get out," she said. "As in miles per hour? Damn, girl! Were you testing in a typhoon or something?"

Lhakpa grinned. "I had a pretty stiff tailwind, but mostly I wanted to find out how hard I could push it if I had to. Like I say, I don't know exactly how fast I was going, but I outran the RCR traffic spotter..."

"I bet that guy's sworn off cactus juice," Corwin quipped.

"All right, that's it, I gotta get me one of these," Korra remarked, collapsing the high-tech staff and handing it back to its owner. "Where's Ryo?"
