Soaring Star by Thunder Tiger, soar with eagle
Yoshiko, my wife, took these pictures at Apollo field with telephoto lense. The plane is 2M light electric glider, Soaring Star, made by Thunder Tiger, Taiwan.
This electric glider is built light with balsa built-up wing, therefore, fragile. Not suitable for high speed flying.
As its name suggests, it is a good high soaring glider. You can enjoy soaring with eagles.
Caution: Do not bother California Condors which are protected by law. If you do, you will be cited.

Great pic but not an eagle rather turkey vulture they are VERY curious about sail planes than any other bird, I dunno why. They always seem to come around about 5-10 min after I hand launch a sailplane, pretty funny.
