    I`m sorry to hear you have had so much trouble with this plane, it sounds like you and your friend could have scratch built a much better glider.
    Building a depron vintage thermal soarer is still on my to do list:)

    My friend has taken it as a challenge, I have completely given up with this glider.
    I have many other gliders that fly much better.

    Good luck with your depron vintage glider, I believe that building a wood laser cut kit of a such a glider would be a real pleasure (slow and careful build).

    Cheers.

    My friend glassed original wings, brought little improvement.
    Glider still underperforming and treacherous (I assure you he can fly).
    He is convinced, that our two planes were defective from day one (maybe wing incidence wrong).
    Work on new wings has started, hot wired, will be balsa covered.
    I don't know if he'll have time to finish them before leaving for holidays and the end of my flying season.

    Cheers.
