      I pulled out the joiners and they seem to be 14⁰, so that's only out by about 4⁰. I'm not going to try alter them. My margin for error is likely bigger than that anyway!  So that leaves CG, which I suspect was already too far back for a turbulent slope, and then control throws. It does seem to have quite a large throw on rudder. Plus I think the actual rudder has been oversized. I'll try more expo.  Then I guess there's technique and experience. It does seem to fly how they said it should

      I generally find my thermals keep some of the wind in 🤭 Another brief attempt this morning out at the rec. A bit too early for lift purposes as the sun wasn't getting through the stratus but very calm so you could cruise about and find what was there . I had one decent flight of 8:20 getting to a good height and flying with three kites who were showing me the way. I'm coming for you Jon... well trying anyway! (Is the 28th the last day ie we can log a new time on the 29th? I've forgotten how we do this!) Jon
