Hey Pat,

Can I be your caddy? You know, I'll carry your new planes to the field and then we can size up thermals and I'll tell you which side of the sky I think looks better.

You are the man for the reviews of the new planes! Keep 'em coming! Sounds like the Orca is similar to the Lightspeed DLG that I fly. Maybe a bit like the NYX? Need to keep it moving but you are rewarded with great distance capability.

I think everyone looks for a plane that minimizes their weakness, so currently I'm looking around for the most stable, predictable plane in landing. I like my Onyx JW a lot, and prior to that I flew my Icon successfully. From what I've seen the Xplorer lands better than either, at least slower. What do you think?

John
