Which way to turn into a thermal depends on which side of the plane it's on. Very simplified: if the left wing lifts up, thermal is on the left, turn left; and vice versa.

that makes sense. thanks.

i still would like to hear from some1 who has any idea if thermals turn-and if so, in which direction, and if he can bring any reason why.
regards.
