New owner Maiden last night

Just a quick note that I did my madine on HiDaven's former Orion built by Lenny970. Thanks for the great build Lenny & Dave's support in getting me flying.
What a great flying machine, my 1st glider !!

I was alittle nervous on 1st flight as this is my most expensive model ever but I know it was a great choice. I set the CofG for around 100mm & she climbs like a homesick angel. I did have a bit of a nose down trim issue (elevon was set to low) for 1st flight but managed to trim it for 2nd flight. I am very impressed on how well she carrys energy & floats as I did not find any lift towards dusk last night.

At this point as I learn more about Sailplane programming & my new DX18, I would like to ask for any Orion tips or specific flap/aileron etc. settings to help with thermaling, camber or speed.
Thanks in advance.
