Bit of news guys. If you are going to thermal this one I suggest you put some dark markings of some sort on the bottom of the wings. This morning I was up with another guy that had a Multiplex Easystar and we were hooking some boomers. But a couple of times when we were wayyyyy up and specking out I lost orientation of the ASW28. I also lost it completely once when I glanced away from the plane and had an anxious few seconds until I picked it up again. Those white wings just vanish against the sky at height especially in strong sunlight. The Orange stars and stripes do nothing. The guy with the easy star had painted the bottom of his wings a dark colour and while not super pretty it was very visible at the same height that I was losing the ASW28.
