I believe the 33 gr/dm2 would be slightly lighter wingloading. I'm trying to get a feel for the thermal speed compared to the radian.

If anyone has flown both the radian and the minimoa, I'd like to hear your subjective comments on how they compare in thermal and when hunting (flying in sink).

Also looking forward to checking out the slow thermal turns with the minimoa's wing shape. How much flatter can you turn as compared to an RE plane? and compared to a flat wing REA plane?

Thanks,

Jim
