Default Nitroplanes Salto HB-1232

Fellow sailplane fanatics,

Has anyone flown the 2.6m Salto HB-1232 available from Nitro Planes? They have an excellent price on it right now. I'd like to hear how it handles, especially on the slope. It looks great, but you know about some of these "sounds-too-good-to-be-true" offers. I'm a bit wary.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You get what you pay for...They need some fiberglass reinforcing from rear former forward. Search for threads here and you will find some info.

we have several Saltos flying at our slope. It is a great value for the money. You need to keep the speed up. It has a wide speed range, just be careful when flying loops or other aerobatics: Do not overstress the wings! In that forum you can find a ton of info on this Salto:

Here are some videos I made featuring the Salto. The video featured on their website is also mine, by the way:
