Yesterday was the first day that I can remember this year that the wind was light for the entire day so I left work an hour early to do some flying. This model airplane sure has been a lesson in how making tiny changes can make a big difference. The grass is getting really long again at this field so there would have been some cushion if the glider crashed after launch or because of bad trim but it never did. I fact the landings were always very gentle.
The trim of the glider seems to change between flying sessions, I am not sure if that is common or if I do not have it dialed in yet, maybe a combination of both. Transition at the top of the launch is getting better but the glider seems to go through some small oscillations and then the glide is good. More nose weight was added in later flights and the glide improved.
The DT worked very well yesterday and I see it is possible in low wind conditions to have a glider flying high yet still get it down within the small field most of the time. Now my focus is going to be improving the flight path for better duration.
