Plus it can thermal when it needs to (although the lack of rudder is more keenly noticed then IMO). Did I mention that I like the 1.2m SP
Comparing the 1.43 m SP to a 1m span plane (Bobolink) may be a bit like comparing apples and oranges, or what?
I think you will be surprised with the performance if you gets yours built and flying. Alex was flying his in 35MPH winds a few days ago and it was penetrating great.
