FOUND !!! Lost my 1st RC sailplane today - a fly away FOUND!!!

Kit built 2M spirit
just started getting confident on the high start launches, just started getting addicted. . .

a gently windy day...
allowed the plane to get to far upwind and outside the flying field and high; could not see it; lost control; it porpoised; dived; maybe even did a loop not sure it was a speck...

then I lost my much loved toy...somewhere behing the houses and trees...

After calling the wife and letting her know the bad news I went to the gas station; got a bottle of Cherry Coke and cleared my mind....

On the bright side, now I have room for a NEW sailplane!
Any suggestions
