While I wouldn't claim that the Oly 2 is the best glider ever designed, I will claim that it's a better trainer than the GL. And, yeah, I've beaten those hi tech RES gliders in contests using mine. Doesn't even have spoilers. And it's something lie 30 years old too. One of the competitors complained that he was distracted by the noise from the buzzing Monokote. (It hasn't had the maintenance it deserves.)

Better hang time, better visibility, and even handles a little better than the GL.
