There is certainly an imprint from that 'first' experience.No argument there.
And then there's sloping my MPX DG-600 around.I just go to the zone when I'm flying it around.Usually in 40min chunks.Several times for 2hrs. plus.
I flew a Hobie Hawk for quite a number of years. I will agree with you about grace and elegance. I found this youtube video which has also been floating around here on RC Groups.
I agree.... one of the best looking planes of it's time.
