Thank you for the nice words, the platform is very stable indeed, it's got a little pendulum effect like most polihedral wings, but this allows the OSD unit to pilot the plane back home in the event of loss of ppm stream from the receiver, without the added cost and complexity of a IMU .
Sometimes the simple and easy platforms with inherent stability are the best bet. The rudder or ailerons don't have the authority to roll the plane upside down, so it will right itself up no matter what happens from the outside (wind, interference etc).
In the summer once you are above say 2000feet, you can catch thermals for hours in a row, and stay up without using the motor.
Overall I am satisfied with the Kondor, and other pilots are finding it to be a great beginner fpv ship, they say it flies itself, it's too easy, in fact once you are up there, you can fly it with trims alone, and that leaves a lot of time to look at the scenery.
