Keep practicing. In time you will be able to fly a glider all afternoon on one launch, ha-ha.
24yrs ago I was very competitive in gliders (pure gliders). For those that don't know much of my past.

Brodie, we are going to a family gathering at Arlene's aunt's farm. They expect some electric night flying. But today I thought I could visit from a lawn chair flying an electric assist glider, he-he.
Enjoy your holiday, my friend.

I forgot about the little carbs on the glows but super easy to set-up throttle and choke.
Very nice Trevor.

First time I flew a glider. It's actually petty fun and lazy using one stick and no power lol. The park zone radian is good bang for the buck

I think this is one engine brand we can all agree on right?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

LOL! It's a pretty high quality motor by the looks of it. I've been corresponding with a couple in Europe that have been running them. They are saying a 1L tank will do a consistent 10min flight with reserve on landing if on the throttle pretty hard. Not bad if that's the case, but we'll see.

Seems like a Menz 24x8 2-blade is working well, so excited to get it on the stand soon and see.
