One of the easiest to fly, best harmonised gliders ever built. The delightful handling characteristics belie the gliders performance which is almost as good as the best Standard Class gliders. 98 is equipped with a Cambridge L-Nav, GPS-Nav and GPS Display system. The GPS-Nav will drive Winpilot on an Ipaq, but you should bring your own Ipaq and cable.
