I've never flown a (sail)plane, that's still a dream to come true. In the mean time Condor should suffice
Taking of and landing isn't a problem (I've flown many hours in flightsims) but taking advantage of the thermals gives me trouble (and no, I haven't done the flight school yet
What I've read and heard is that a good thermal is quite violent, in the sense that once you enter the thermal it's like being in an elevator.
Only when I enter a thermal in condor (locating them with 'h') not a lot happens. Sure the vario meter tells me that I ascend a little, but I'm out of it in no time! No turning upwards in any case...
Surely I must be doing something wrong!? Maybe someone could be so nice and write some lines about using the thermals more efficiently?
Thanks in advance,
