Hey Curtis.
It is amazing. I actually finished the plane Saturday evening. I took it to the contest on Sunday and got a couple test launches before we started. It's a little underpowered right now. It just barely makes 200m with no ranging out. Still, it indicates lift so well that I had no problem making time in every round. Conditions were calm so I flew it light (56 oz or so with an 1800mah pack in it). Mark still thinks it's nose-heavy but I thought it flew great.

The only problem I had all day was a set of stripped gears on an MKS6100 flap servo. I had one landing where I dragged it in the grass and it went away immediately. We replaced the servo between heats and finished the day. I probably should have put something stronger in the flaps.

All in all, this is the best glider thing I've ever flown.
