I've had my Radian to 2469 feet (RAM3) AGL. It was had to see even with the dark red wing paint.

I used the motor to 410 ft. and hooked into a thermal that was feeding a small cloud. The cloud and thermal remained almost stationary over the field. The white of the cloud helped me see the plane by increasing contrast over blue sky. I spun down when the it started to disappear into the cloud base.

I've since been to 2000 a couple of times and 1500+ several --- sure is fun to hook into one of those hat-suckers ;o)
