Anyone flying Global Cirrus 2M Glider from Hobby-People?
Is anyone flying Global Cirrus 2M Glider from Hobby-People? (http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/127031.asp)
It is an ARF.

Wing Area: 680 square inches
Length: 48.5 inches

Can this be a good slope plane when wind is light?

Almost anything can fly well on a slope. Balance the plane properly in your morning 'thermal' flying sessions-- then chuck it off the slope in the afternoon wind. What you'll need to learn is --1) Wind direction affects groundspeed! Fly faster downwind!
2) The lift band tends to run up and away from the slope --
3) Always make your turns into the wind when you're beginning.
4) If there is room-- land well behind the slope to avoid turbulant air-- (rotors)--
From there all you need is stick time!! Have fun-- learn to surf the wind!! It's great to fly all you want-- plenty of energy -- and no fuel cleanup!!! Plus in the West--- we enjoy some of the best sunsets while flying!!

it looks good..i bet it would fly well..but.
if you would like to set it in the air in light winds..you will need to put there micro servos and not a standart..
hmm..other than that..hmm..
the gentle lady is flying well in light winds..i flew the gentle in very light winds...
the only disadvantage is that is has no spoilers so it would take a while until you'll learn to land it precisey..

i fell in love with it
it is a good handeling plane
just dont land too hard on the nose
it was my third plane and first crunchy plane
still have it and fly it every once in a while when the lift is light
i can be up when no one els can be up
i cind have out grown it but when i want to relax and fly easy
i chuck that one out
it is fun
have you ever flown befor and what is your experience
this is not a beginner plane it will crack up if you crash it hard
it was an easy build just took a weekend but i worked on it slowly

Due to the different airfoil, I've heard that Cirrus flies faster than GP Spirit. I downloaded its manual before and it requires a bit more work to build compare with Sprit ARF.
