The MAXIMUM weight for a Graecalis is 5.9 / 6 kg.
The carbon version is very strong, there is no need to add additional layers of carbon

Hi guys

I finally maidened my Graecalis. We had a slope soaring meeting yesterday on one of the best slope sites in Slovenia, Vremščica.
The wind and thermals were good so I had no problem to throw it down the hill. Boy, this model flies like it's on rails. Just a few clicks of elevator trim and I was good to go. I really like the energy retention and the way it performs, so smooth. Aerobatics are really nice. Landings are not a problem.
If I say that I can't wait to fly this baby again I think I said it all. Next time I am hoping to shoot some video too.

Regards,

Yes, I'm shooting for Saturday afternoon at Tick.
Come on down!!
I've got my flaps modified for 90 degrees so it will land there.
