    Are you asking how Trya performs in flight?

    OK, watch this

    I centered her in thermal and dropped control bar ... As you can see she kept circling perfectly and exactly in the bank angle I set. 4000 ft gained in this thermal

    Fuel consumption? 13,8 ltr consumed in 2 hrs 18 min. flight which includes 10 min. engine warm up, taxiing and two landings and take offs

    Engine Rotax 447, propeller Hellix ...

    Yep, 4000 ft, or so ... if you'd pause video at 0:07, you'd see Flymaster indication 2730 ft, or so. And 2870 ft at 0:31. And 3210 ft at 1:11. I remained under the cloud after I stopped recording until reached 4000 ft.

    No, usually I warm up engine for about 5 to 8 min., but our hangar is located at far end of runway (27) and had to taxi 500 meters towards 09 and wait till a "serious" plane, the CTSW will end its radio check procedure My microphone failed, so no radio check procedure intervened my take - off

    That's impressive... I'm currently upgrading the engine mount on mine but hope to be back flying soon and with soaring qualities displayed in your video coupled with 4-stroke briggs power I'm beginning to think that perhaps I shouldn't worry too much about the small 20ltr fuel tank. ..

    Hang point was set in the middle position.

    Flying with hang point in the front position requires 7 ltr. per hour.
