Spent a little time sering up differential and elevator offsets with crow
seemed to indicate thermals quite well. Prefers to fly relatively fast.
Even had a light ds with it behind a shrub line in no air.

Yet to see how it goes on a flat field in dead air. I can't see it being as
good as my exploder. But it has another 1m and a half on the Orion.

Defiantly a keeper.
