16min 29sec (after 20sec motor run)
Launch alt 205 feet, max alt 644 feet.

Really didn't intend to enter this fight, being that this was the first flight of this plane and I haven't flown a sailplane in over 15 years. But I was surprised that the first flight went so well. I didn't try to get max altitude during the motor run and stumbled in to a thermal that I just kept flying in and out of. It would have stayed up longer cause I brought it down on purpose. Didn't want to push my luck any further on a first flight.

I bought the the kit from Radman in the classifieds here. Built it in a week. Will hopefully enter a better fight as soon as the weather here clears.
