Hi, just bought a 'palio Thermic' 98" span powered glider. With a 600 speed motor and an 8x4 prop. I have read somewhere a thread which says it struggles in the slightest wind to make headway....has anyone else experience of one? What was your impression?
Cheers Jonah:)

The Palio flies nicely on a decent outrunner and a 13-14 inch prop. A geared buggy motor with a 13-14 incher will do also. DD on a speed 600 is a great big crash waiting to happen to a beautiful plane. I flew the Sport Palio and my dad had the Thermic. We both wish these were still available in the U.S.

Nice plane - power it well to get good perfomance. 8x4 is a joke.
