I flew more than just some hand throws in the backyard today. The Soarer flew really well. I had a 5-10 mph breeze, and lift on the slope was great for the Simple Soarer. I had some 1/2 hour flights, and I only landed because my hands were cold and I needed to warm them up. At times when the breeze was up a little more, it got a bit bumpy, but it still flew well. I had to scrub off altitude a couple of times because it was getting so high. There's no shortage of slope lift here in eastern Idaho, and with the recent rain, and some some sun today, there was thermal lift as well. I am really happy with this little plane. I'd like to tape it and make it more water resistant, but I really don't want to add any weight. I may have to build another one, and peel the paper, and replace it with tape or doculam. Since I am still landing in sage brush, it would be nice to have a little more toughness, but I hate to add weight! I really like it at 14 oz. I was able to get good lift in a very slight breeze. I only thought to bring my GoPro by the time I was halfway to my flying site, so sorry, no video.
