I have the EasyGlider Electric with brushless motor...I like it but it flies too fast to land in my backyard (100X100) I consider myself an expert pilot after flying for over 30 years but even with spoilerons deployed and clearing my 6 foot privacy fence, my EGE touches down and slides into my fence on the other side of the yard. What I need is a floater that will land slooow and slide only a few feet before stopping. In a sailplane ailerons are not that important so it doesn't bother me in the least that it doesn't have them...Actually it's nice to have the simplest airplane there is when you are flying in your backyard after supper. I hope the Radian is capable of floating into my feet or even slow enough for a hand catch...that would be terrific!
