How does it compare to DSing IRL? Worth practicing on the sim before doing the real thing?

Jonathon, your Mamba looks like it flys pretty sweet to me! Don't change a thing and fly it for a while in different conditions.

Well at least it's flying Johnathan! However it looks extremely light and it looks like your having to milk the elevator quite a bit. If its barely staying up right-side up, it won't fly any better upside down . Get it in 10-12 and try again. 6.75" is right on the verge of tail-heavy, bit again you'll need more lift to be sure.

Your Mamba flys good. I'm jealous of your lunch spot! I wish my work was near a slope site, especially one that good. Nice job!

Ive tried little tip winglets just for the heck of it, and it really made no difference. If your in the area this weekend and there's wind we will tune it right. It still sounds nose-heavy since it should only need a small amount of down stick to fly inverted.
A lot of wings have a fence about midway down the wing that seems to really help. Stops spanwise flow. Also could try vortex generators- zig zag tape along wing to re-attach flow, or stall strips.

No Intervention on Gods part is necessary.
All that is required is to pass the test. (if you are ready)

If not get ready

Oreiantation flight.
Get used to the hill and landing.
To be able to be in full control of your glider.
(To stay or of people's yards)
Spot landing.
In the pattern that gets you through the rotor.

The slope club is on thin ground.
A few more (accidents) would be bad.

Who has a card now
but still loves his hill over the trailer park
