What do flaps & ailerons do to dihedral?

It sure would have been nice if the guy who got it "mistakenly" had flown it. I am really curious how it will fly without the graceful dihedral arc of the Radian. I've flown an Easy Glider with ailerons and it is a totally different animal. I also wonder whether they have retained the original Radian airfoil? I think that thick airfoil allows the slow flight that makes the Radian such a great thermal hunter.

One of our listeners created yet another ATTF video. I think it is appropriate to post it here based on it's primary subject matter.

Have you seen any of the other hitler vidoes for ATTF? They are all funny but I think this is one of the better ones. The only thing parkzone has to do with in this video is the fact they released the Pro on accident. That or somebody is implying that ParkZone = Hitler, but im going to assume its the former and not the latter.

too bad it appears that they changed the wing attachment setup... would love to upgrade just the wings to my existing radian... (have "spoilerons"... but flaps and ailerons would be slick...)

thats one of the first things i noticed and thought great, they have improved one of the Radians week points

i don't think the PZ boys would be that silly as to just make a set of wings for the old Radian, then call it the "Pro" who would buy the new Radian if you only needed wings to change the old one

really looking forward to adding this glider to the collection i wonder if it will come with the AR6200 so you can set up how you like or if it will just be the ol AR500 with Y cable?

cheers chuck

Gotta say ailerons would make those low inverted passes much easier to do
