Love my Radian! Been flying it for 2 summers now. You don't need a bigger battery, but maybe a spare. I've soared for over an hour, with no throttle use. Once it's been trimmed out, it is pretty stable. Set your trim in light wind, and practise doing circuits. Then, when ready, add a bit of up trim for thermalling. Once you're used to the flying characteristics, bring a recumbent lawn chair (saves the neck strain), sit back and enjoy!

Re: Radian advice

Hi Norm P. Not sure where u are at and not sure if anyone suggested it but are you really stuck on the Radian glider or are wanting a step up from the Champ ? Have you considered the Apprentice 15 ? In relation the the Radian series of gliders it is a great starter aircraft and can be flown in a breeze. Parts are available and think and hope this one will be around for a long time. Easily repaired with foam safe CA glue or epoxy.

Oh yes! Lawn chair with a neck support is mandatory if you are flying gliders for more than 10 minutes at a shot
