I like to say that we are a cult, praying and waiting for the second coming of Condor :).

Re: 8 Years really that long? Beyond a joke now.

As far as the ridge model is concerned, it is pretty damn good. The Appalachian ridges work pretty close to how I would expect them to work in real life. It's just that most don't know that the wind set in the flightplanner is for 1000m, rather than the surface. To make the appalachian ridges work, ...

Re: Windward Performance Duckhawk

This is an image of the polar. Bear in mind that the empty weight of this glider is 450 lbs and the gross is 960 lbs.

Best Regards,

Re: Windward Performance Duckhawk

OXO, There is a theoretical polar provided by the factory which is in the manual. The glider has not been directly tested yet. However, for what it is worth, the observations provided by the factory polar translate very well into real flight. For instance, the polar indicates an almost non-existent ...

Re: Windward Performance Duckhawk

Nope no winglets. The wing is so thin at the tip that their benefit would be marginal at best since the glider can thermal around 45 knots empty anyway (in my case with an 8.2 lbs/square foot wing loading). Furthermore, since it has a redline of 200 knots, the necessity for strengthening the outer p...

Re: 8 Years really that long? Beyond a joke now.

Condor is alive and well in the Western hemisphere. US Nightly Soaring and Monday Night Soaring regularly have 20+ pilots flying every night. Late Night Soaring was recently added and is gaining steam. Thanks for providing years of entertainment and for all the work that was done. Best Regards, Dani...

Windward Performance Duckhawk

As of recent, I've been able to fly this glider thanks to the generosity of its owner. If the Condor administration is interested in developing it in a planepack, I have access to pictures, polars, sounds, and anything else that could be of interest. It could be a nice addition to Plane Pack 3 as it...

Re: Plane Pack 3/ New Plane Pack

And it's been EIGHT years of non-stop complaining by Olympia! I am sure that if you put your efforts into developing another simulator in that timeframe, we would have the most immersive glider flying experience ever! But alas, that is not so. But really Olympia, it's commendable that you're not run...

Having fun in the DuckHawk 15m sailplane By: Daniel Sazhin

An article I recently wrote. Figured my Condor friends may find it interesting too :) In early September, I had a fantastic day of flying at Blairstown Airport, the culmination of which was having the opportunity to fly Windward Performance's new DuckHawk. I had just flown the club Grob Twin Astir w...

Re: Silver 'C', how much did it cost you?

Lucky man Olympia :). I think I had five or six launches attempting my badge flights, around $55 each... Luckily I fly in a club so the cost of the aircraft is negligible for each flight.

Re: Blairstown NJ scenery

Dave Regula to the rescue! When it comes to Terragen vs. Photoreal, whichever you think looks better/easier to make. I think that perhaps it would be best a combination of Terragen for the ridges and photoreal everywhere else, but that's at your discretion. I am up for doing the dirty work like Pete...
