Default Condor News ---- 2 October 2018

In the last month we have released 2 new gliders - The Ventus 3 in 15m and 18m, and the ASK21.

Condor development continues apace.

ASW27 is the same as ASG29 in 15m, and we are adding that soon.

What about motor glider like ASH-31Mi, very popular.

An older glider, with particularly unique handling characteristics like the Phoebus, would be great. Particularly with this glider, which is so "responsive" (AKA "squirly"), would be a great learning tool to get some practice in without the risk of crashing it. This would be an ideal use of technology like Condor, I would think.

We thank everybody for their feedback. This helps to make Condor great!

If you want a responsive ship in Condor, do try the Swift S1. Thats really responsive.

ASH31 is on the list but its quite a way down. So many planes .. so little time..

Condor 2 is a big improvment over the already good Condor1 and the fleet is growing nicelly good matches for almost all categories except Club Class and Open Class.

I think you should prioritize some Club Class to fly against the Standard Cirrus ASW-19 is my favorite but LS-1 or Libelle might be a more balanced aproach.

I know this may not go over with a lot of newer people to soaring, i.e. more recently than the 1960s, but there are still quite a few 2-33s being used for training. It would be nice to have a model in Condor that approximated it's handling qualities, cockpit layout, sight picture, etc.

Dude......really!



LOL.......taken from someone that learned in a 2-33 in early 70's US, still use them for training and rides.
;-)

To heck with those that look down on it!

At least one advantage, pretty much ANY aircraft mechanic can work on it.
Additional, if you can go cross country in it, you can pretty much go cross country in anything.
