|Email from David Hobby June 13. 2006:
I have just returned home after the
largest Australian thermal glider competition, and won.
For a majority of the flights I used the Perfect. What a fantastic model.
I only had three launches the previous Sunday to sort it out and then a
couple on Friday before the competition. The launches were excellent,
very strong, and the flight performance is fantastic. I just can not
wait to fly it at Martin. The paint scheme on the model looks great.
One day was very windy so I used the Giant. The new wing tips work great.
Very interesting model. I am finding the model is very good in windy
weather as ecpected but it is also very nice to fly in light weather
with a little camber. I need to fly it more, it has a lot of potential.
