You may ask Janne, he the one who believes the PP can't penetrate the wind unballasted

From the behaviour, agility, floating capabilities and cruise speed I still believe the PP and Tragi are close to each other, but what do I know just fiddeling around on a slope....

Just by looking Tragi fly, I can assure you it is much more slippery than Pike Perfect. How well would PP move at 1800g AUW??

Just i have sayed before,I have flyed perfects many years,testetd cg from 106 to 125mm, i mostly flyed 110mm and et 109mm.I think that im not "bad" pilot or wannabe,I have experience in F3J from 1995....many designs flown from jaro muller esprit-> now days.For saying difference of perfect against ET perfect, ET goes better at wind even is bigger.Everybody can have they own minds about models,and ofcourse own model is best:-) I didnt first expect big dirrefence from cluster against perfects,but i surprised really positive.>Now i need to deside what models to buy,more clusters or something else:-) needing 2-4 models more right now.

Hi Janne ,glad you are enjoying flying your Cluster ,
I bought 2 last year and have had a great competition season flying them .they are really good in UK conditions
I also have a light but strong Supra under 1.6 for those dead air slots we get at eurotour comps .looking to add a Maxa 3.5 which I hope will give me a fleet off models to cope with most conditions .

I have been flying 801's for two years, had a great Nats and 12th at Soaring Masters. Won a lot of local stuff in this time frame. Also, won the Nats ALES contest with E-801 this summer.

So, is there somethink wrong to use a J ship for the slope in light conditions when possible nothing else would stays up??
or is this blasphemic for the competion experts?
