Elegance glider ridge soaring


Took my park flyer Elegance glider out to the beach the other day to see how it went as a ridge soarer - pretty freaking great actually. Wind was only 3-5 kts which was enough to keep it up and it was good to have the motor on board for back up. This model will fly in quite high winds so has a good flight envelope.

I have a coyote which seems essentially the same. I am looking for some front dimensions. The round front diameter and the distance between the forward wing bulkhead and the front.
