All I can say is it flies very nice. Different than the original of course but every bit as nice.
There is a small amount of dihedral and polyhedral break in the wing. Many high end full house composite planes have some dihedral or both dihedral and polyhedral. It definately does not feel any heavier in the air and since it uses the same airfoil it performs every bit as good as the original.
Once you get your hands on it you will like it.
The couple of hardcore sailplane flyers we have at Horizon are going to use it as thier competition practice plane since it feels more like a composite ship than foam in the air.
There is one hidden change that you cannot see and that is we added fiberglass blades down the fuselage under the pushrods dramatically stiffining the fuselage.
Plus you can do crow, camber and reflex with this Radian.
Hope that helps.
