Have you flown it yet? It does look nice - quite porky!

It was aired for the first time at the Indoor nats on 13th April, in the new scale glider class. I think it came 5th out of 7 entries. There is a fine line between a stall and a dive at the moment - very sensitive on the CoG. Plus you have to get the speed bang on at time of the tow release. A bit of practice and fine trim and it should fly well. There is a video of a 'flight' on the following link. A fairly unconvincing flight, but as I say, I need to work on it!

Yes - of course. I remember it being mentioned in the Topic.  Looks good.  How bout a Horsa or Hamilcar?
