I've been looking for a nice thermal sniffer for a while. Easy Glider works well and even my R/E Capstan could more than do the job I think, but sloping has fed my kleptomania.

Apparently this ^^ used to win comps all the time back in the day. So even with my thumbs of ham, it should be a fantastic machine to learn the dark art of thermalling. And landing out
 
Two years ago I had a Wildthing and thought that'd do me. Now I have *runs out of fingers* 12 gliders. And that's after giving two away.
 
Anyone seen/had/flown one of these?

Looks a stonker eh? One of my favourite days flying was in a very light southerly (which doesn't suit our slope at all) being taught how to find thermals way out in the valley. I did some walking that day, but it's quite a feeling "saving" it from landing out and climbing back up over the slope.
 
I do like a big wind day, but there's definitely a space in my sloping for some more cerebral flying
