I don't think anyone here is trying to say the Maxa is not a good plane. My brief experience with the plane is quite the opposite. I thought it flew great. I think the only thing people are questioning here is the claimed 43' per minute sink rate. That would imply that from a normal winch launch you could easily get a 15 minute flight in dead air. That is a claim that I question. I'm sure it has a great sink rate, but maybe not that great. Ultimately, success in competition will validate the design, and success will enhance its popularity.
