Hey John,

I have seen you fly, I think maybe I should be your caddy. As far as landing goes, I rank my Xplorer up there with my old Icon which personally I always use as the Standard for easy to land planes. I think the Xplorer is just really easy to keep on line even in gusty conditions and it slows down well in dead air landings. In the winds like we had yesterday, I could just fly it clean right into within a 5-10 feet of the spot and then dump the flaps and stick it. The Orca is a little quicker in the zone and could possibly use a little bigger rudder for keeping the plane tracking straight. I need more practice with the Orca before I make any definetive opinion on the rudder. I may just need to add a little more throw in my landing set up. The Xplorer just like the Icon was easy to land straight off the bench. Needless to say, I really like both the Xplorer and my Orca.

See Ya,

Pat
