Palo,

Those are both beautiful sailplanes you have there! Nice size too! My largest is a 2 meter, and I'm thinking that someday I may need to go to 3 meters.

Cheers, and happy flying,

Rob

Palo,
Very great-looking birds there. We don't have the wide-open spaces available nearby here, and landing in the desert would do a lot of damage, so we go to a nearby city park and fly smaller planes (2M). We wish there was opportunity for competition, but only the hand-launch glider crowd can do that here in the city.

How are the FXJ competitions run, i.e. limited motor run, etc?
