Tom, no failsafe. It just slowly rolled on over and started to spiral. Not high enough that orientation was an issue. Ron found a satalite that had come loose at some point, and was down in the rats nest of wiring. Not sure if that would have caused an issue or not. That was the only lockout I felt on it in close to three hours of flying this weekend.

I do gotta say that flying the big sailplane was fun, took a bit to get my head wrapped around it, but after I got my thumbs in sync, I loved the performance, especially the energy retention.
