I flew in a Schweizer SGS 2-33 this past weekend. I did all the flying except for the ROG and landing. We were towed up by a Piper Pawnee.

The instructor said I did exceptionally well for someone who had never flown a glider before.

Awesome its one of my dreams to fly in an open cockpit glider. Nothing but the wind rushing through your hair and the woosh of the wings .

I already got lipos and a rx. Gotta get some Digital solar servos a motor and a esc from hobbypartz. Also I went flying in a cirrus sr20 last weekend it was so awesome. The pilot let me fly for a good while. it was so fun.
Blehhh... don't buy aeroworks.........nice quality but all I've heard about them is that they fly like a total POS.
