I know it does glide awesome, I've been flying Strykers for a long time!. You can keep in C version in the air for more than 30 minutes if all you do is go up, and gently glide down while riding some hot air, rinse and repeat. But I think you would need a massive thermal to gain altitude with a Stryker though. Staying at the same level for a little while seem possible, but since I was always way up when that happened, I could not bet money on it!
I agree that the right tool for the job is a glider, but trust me, a Vapor over a hot city (roofs, asphalt, etc) can be fun too. Hard to get the perfect day for it though, since if there's any real wind, the Vapor stay in the box!
