Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hang on just a second, because I'm not sure this is entirely accurate. You're telling us that a $200 range RTF foam glider isn't going to have the same performance as a $1000+ glass ship from Germany? Seriously? That can't be right. Can you check your sources on that? That would be great, thanks.
