I wanted to try a glider. The fellows over in the sail plane forum convinced me that the Radian was the right way to go for a beginner. I really wanted something that wasn't foam and had ailerons. In retrospect I think they're probably right, for someone just learning to thermal this is the way to go.

In fact this plane is so slow and gentle I think I may use it to teach my wife to fly RC.
