Could find no feedback or site reviews about this airplane except for some limited video and distributor reviews. Not interested in contest winning edge but wondering if this powered sailplane is a decent sport subject for moderate lift conditions. I'm not a die-hard glider-guider but have noticed what seems to be a preference by the discerning glider pilot for R, E vs. R,E,A. I believe this airplane is equipped with rudder, elevator, ailerons, and flaps... Any comments, recommendations, advice?

This wonderful bird is equipped with Rudder Elevator and Ailerons. The RTF Version doesn't have flaps installed. But there's a kit that can be purchased separately to add flaps.

This bird has plenty of power. The airfoil is amazing. Slope or thermal flight is fun in no to little activity all they way up to about 20mph winds. At least that is the max wind speed I've flown my Quest in so far. I do believe you will be pleasantly impressed with the Quest.
