Just a word of caution.

Since we don't have these lovely birds in the air yet we can only speculate on handling but this is a relatively high performance design. For those making the jump straight from a Radian; it would be a good idea to get a little help for the first flights. It's a lot bigger, uses ailerons as the primary roll control, and should be a lot faster than a Radian. Those three things combined could prove a bit overwhelming for anyone who hasn't flown a similar sailplane.

If you are making the jump and don't have someone to help? It might be a good idea to first try one of the many fine, inexpensive, aileron trainers out there (Radian Pro, Calypso, etc.) before throwing the Mystique in the air.
