Don't know where you guys have your CG, but I moved mine back per recommendations in this thread. Moving the CG back slows the descent, and it makes the Fox react to lighter lift. It also makes it easier to stall, and loose the light lift you just found.

My Fox doesn't climb in the lightest lift, but I can usually find enough to hold altitude. My problem isn't so much with the Fox as my own skill. It sees the lift, I just don't work it all that well. I have a Multiplex Flamingo (2.5 M) and a Graupner Cirrus (3M). Both old designs. The Cirrus is even what used to be called a "gas bag". My experience is that if the Fox doesn't see the lift, they wouldn't either.
