She captures the very essence of flying, with her six foot wing span I can fly for over 1 hour if I chose. she is fast and silent. This plane has a great vertical climb If you want and is very nimble. the power off giant loops are amazing or sit down in a folding chair and enjoy her soaring. Today I put her up in a 10 to 15 MPH wind and flew for twenty minutes with less than 30 seconds of motor turning. I have planes that do 70+ Mph and super nimble ultra micros. I have one plane that can fly off any surface shy of lava and can hover loop and roll. But this glider is Amazing. I hope this helps

I have " Zero experience with a glider plane other wise
I have flown for 3 years now with my apprentice plane by e-flite ,I would get it up as far as I dared too with out loosing it and gliding it back so i am hoping this will be better to fly .....

Go easey this level of Glider is for Advanced or prfeciant pilots. I use 20% down Eievator when I throw the flaps to slow down. These planes turn gental or you can get into a mess quick. Not hard to fly just very diffrent like the quick response of a sport plane forget that. And get your rudder stick ready I use a bunch of rudder while glider flying. Good luck

You should do great with three years under your belt. I found that these big girls just respond slower and dont care for steep bank angels. And give yourself a country mile to land. My first landing took 100 yards......she just would not land lol. Love these Sailplanes let me know how it goes
