Hi Mintie,
Yes, it does look nice and has loads of character. I just wish it flew better. It has this strange habit of falling onto one wingtip or the other randomly so flying it is a bit like balancing a broom on the end of your finger. When you combine that with a propensity to fly sideways and a truely awful glide slope you have a model that probably is better hanging from the workshop roof!
Still, it has thermaled for 15 minutes once so it does fly and I have never had a problem landing it.
Hopefully yours will be more rewarding.
Interestingly, I have a club mate with the motor glider version of the T31 at about the same span as mine. His behaves very much the same.
