Default Opteryx 22" thermal micro glider

wanted to show this little guy in action, its great for slope soaring or thermal flight, its only 22inche wing span so it requires calm conditions, but you can still flyhigh with max 5mph winds,



here is a video

Default RE: Opteryx 22

I'm surprised at the lack of comments so far. It seems like a great option for some gliding fun in spots where a bigger model would simply be too bulky and less than rugged enough to deal with rougher terrain for landings.

Have you managed to hook any thermals with it?
