I fly an AVA, but it seems to have no personality at all. It just gets the job done, but due to its long tail it is very solid and doesn't tail shake much. but I really like the OLY lll and feel like I'd enjoy it more. But they're both still RES ships, meaning they will tend to swing if steering commands aren't smoothly applied. By saying that the OLY line (and RES planes in general) will all handle essentially the same was to further address the question of differences/similarities between them compared to full house ships. RES gliders are not as precise at spot landings compared to full house either. It takes a slightly different flying style to pilot a RES plane accurately. The point was that if a pilot is a competent RE pilot (comfortable with some amount of swinging and floating) and that a RES glider is what is desired then for build-and fly then any OLY is a very good choice.
