I'm watching this thread with interest. I started on a scratchbuilt radian knockoff sailplane my boss built and while it flew okay, I didn't appreciate what it was really doing and I didn't like the neck strain. Almost had to lay on my back.

I did see a U2 edf dragon lady the other day. Watched how he chopped the throttle at high altitude catching the thermals and teasing the circling hawks. I'll be it flew 20 minutes, at least. Pretty cool.

Might have to put a sailplane on my bucket list to add some balance to my flying. Been going for speed lately but that can be nerve wracking. Would be nice to have a change of scenery.

Great stuf guys.

Happy Memorial Day !
