When you first posted this announcement, the video was not updated on your
site. Now only one video is available which only shows a straight ahead
stall attempt with a 1/2 second dab of rudder applied. Why not put up the
video first and THEN announce it.

BTW, that's not a spin entry attempt. Mat, HOLD THE RUDDER IN for at least
10 seconds.

I have just completed a flight test of the Pioneer doing stall and spin
attempts.

With the stick all the way back the airspeed slows to 20 mph with about a
200 ft/min sink rate. The wing will not break nor will it go into a spin

or
dive. In the spin tests I brought the glider up to the 20 mph ( stick

fully
back) then hit the rudder hard..... well it just did a slow rotation in

what
ever direction the rudder was deflected. Next I did cross control stall

and
spin attempts... again there was nothing I could do to provoke it to spin.

I
could not get a wing to drop!

All of this is now recorded on video.

For more details see the web site.Look under the Marske Pioneer IId
