what glider to build
I currently own a Roc Hobby V tail glider. It is a foam V tail of course which is 2.2 meters.
I have discovered I love to thermal. I also love to build.
I have been considering
A DJ aerotech Chrysalis
Oly II by skybench Maybe even the 3
A Bird of Time
and just because I have never built one of his kits before
the Stevens Aero Glider.
I want a glider that will blow my Roc Hobby foamy away!
I have been pretty successful at thermaling with it but I just think a balsa would fly better...
Will I really miss the ailerons and flaps?
If I decide I wanted full house which of the kits above would be easier to modify, and being in poor health, a motor is mandatory.
is way bigger really way better?
Oh ya... Why the hell isn't anyone making full house quality glider kits designed up front for a motor?
