It's really cool to deploy them on approach and watch the descent rate and pitch attitude adjust for a perfect spot landing.

I will eventually try spoilerons to. I do not have any gliders per say but I have been using spoilerons in a few of my planes with good results. I do use a elevator mix with spoilerons as well. I talked about Flapperons\Spoilers here

I can not wait for winter to be done!
