It would be in Dutch or German.

In any case, given the decrease in IR with the new generation Lipo's. It would seem we can make do with cheaper lower spec cells rather then the top of the line expensive stuff.

Alternatively we can use smaller capacity cells of the good stuff. The later obviously resulting in a lower weight and thus lower wingloading.

Now, given the same initial performance from both packs (startup power), wich one will give the more constant power for the rest of the climb?!

It will be VERY interresting to see how all this effects total flight performance in F5B.

EDIT try "For a comprehensive description of speed to fly theory read Cross Country Soaring by Helmut Reichmann published by Thompson, a book on competitive sailplane flying essential for all competition pilots."
