I got the chance to test fly the EZ* with EZ glider wings fitted today, it was a total disappointment!
Under power she handled quite well climbing into wind. Once I cut power, that’s when the fun and games started. In the glide directional stability was awful. I switched in coupled rudder, this made things slightly better but it showed a vicious tendency to tip stall downwind and would not turn back into wind without power being applied.
After two flights like this I decided the best place for EZ Glider wings is on the EZ Glider!!!!
Very thankful not to have had a camera on board on these flights!

I will be very interested to hear how Terry’s testing went.
