I am not saying that the MG won't handle the load. It may be a fantastic amount of fun set up that way. FVK products are very well made. The Absolutes I sold had excellent wings, as good as any I've seen for strength.

All I am saying is that saving weight is still important and having a plane that is responsive at slower speeds, that needs less power to climb because it is light, is more capable of thermalling, are goals that I value.

At the 7 cell glider comp, one of the pilots was using a Hacker B50 when the others flew B40s. The B50 plane came down faster, and went up faster. Coming down counted more than going up in this comp.

Keep talking I enjoy the throughts even if my own opinions are sometimes different.
