I saw this sailplane fly at the Arizona Electric Festival with several different pilots on the controls. Tim caught several thermals with it on one flight and another pilot was flying it pretty much as a powered electric and not really looking for lift. In the right hands she responded well to lift so the pilot knew when he hit something and cored in the thermal nicely and she climbed. A beginner can fly her and an expert can keep her up for a long time in the right conditions. Mike Heer
