Here's a short video I put together from a flying session a couple of days ago. The pilot is Steffen Peters on a maiden flight of his 6M Ventus, from LET Model. For me, this really captures the grace and beauty of scale slope soaring at the Torrey Pines Gliderport. Enjoy.

I've had this plane in the garage for quite some time, waiting to be completed. I finally got it done and in the air after a couple of years of pecking away at it. Now I know what they mean by the saying "bigger flies better". This was my maiden flight. Many thanks go to Thomas Moller who got me motivated to complete the build, gave me many great tips along the way, cut decals for me, tossed it off for the first time, and shot most of this video.
