I recorded 1,298 feet, today, with my Ivory Girl.

Span is 116" and I was pretty comfortable flying the model ... but it is basically a vintage design, so it does stay the right way up, without any pilot' input.

My youth was not mis-spent. A lot of valuable lessons were learned and great experiences were had. I only wish middle age was as valuable and fun.

It is as valuable just not as much fun as the Wild Turkey and other things days. . . . .

7500ft altitude. 10000ft density altitude.

But I'm guessing OP meant AGL: 250ft AGL. ;-)

There's a Spanish chap who flies an electric-assist glider out to about 45 km. He climbs to 12,000' or so ... mostly using thermals. He has to climb in order to maintain LoS for the telemetry.

When one lives and flies at altitude, the question comes up because different altitude definitions make a big difference. "how high" has 4 distrinct answers off the top of my head.

Hi there,

I"ve been blessed with good corrected vision, even @ 60 I've recorded just over 3000' with my 3.1 M Grafas, and I could still distinguish the cruciform shape. I'm quite sure I've had my 2.8 M Proxima II a little higher than that

Cheers!

Hi!
My best is 700m with a 2m homemade sailplane - in thermal. Measured by HK altimeter. Under white clouds, the visibility was very good.
My friend with an Easy Star reached 700m 2 years ago. He wanted to go higher, but i sad: i don't want to loose my new HK How High gadget, so he stopped. It was a powered flight.
