more Tweagle testing


I got some more airtime on the Tweagle

The short inertia concept seems to work, it really circles tight and effortlessly. You can really bang that plane around in a circle and keep it in a narrow thermal. Does not look pretty by times, but if that is what keeps you in the air, why not.
On the flip side it requires more active flying, a price to the augmented agility.

I compared the plane against the Snipe, Flitzebogen, Helios and a Blaster. I was outlaunching my buddies with the other planes and in weak thermals I felt quite comfortable. I could circle much tighter and it climbs very well.

To me, the Snipe feels a bit faster, but the penetration against wind of the Tweagle is not bad at all. It can slow down more easily and it is really easy to circle.

Here is a timelapse series of some quick turnarounds:
