fling HL v.s. ELF , or other 1,5 m poly light glider

Hi
Which one is better for catching low small bubble of hot air close to the ground.
I know that Fling is wood constr. but it has more surface and smaller dihedral then Elf so in the turn FLing will has more active surface.
I'm interesting about Your thinking...
thanks
best

Here is a link to your post from a year ago http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1549837
I doubt opinions have changed

I think you will be much more likely to be successful in the "low small bubble of hot air close to the ground" if you fly the ELF

DLG are wonderfull for hi lauch... I fly Turbo 07 from Wolfgang Zach - Austria-wonderfull model
But I really enjoy to watch video Endless Lift too were Paul start glider in jaw. technic. Yes it is hystory but I think it still looks fun.
Any idea for 1,5 m sailplane weight about 8-9oz in poly version. I was looking on net but can't find that kind of bird ?
Like some of those birds which where flown on San Diego on competition in 2000.year.
thanks
