How about a SGS 1-26(A,B,C,D,or E)
Or a SGS 2-33

Thank you!

A 1-26 or a 2-33 would be awesome! And with a L/D of 23/1, a real challenge.

I fly a Schweizer 1-26E and would love to see the glider in the simulator, but there are a couple reasons why it is very difficult/unfeasible for Condor.

1) The members are mostly European and have voted to have their selection of gliders. Most are the typical glass and more of the same of what we already have in the sim, which is quite a shame.

2) As the weather model is now, it would be extremely difficult to complete a task. The thermals even on an activity of "High" are generally too far apart for a 1-26 to handle. There are no thermal streets so going upwind would be practically impossible. "Good air", which is gentle rising "netto" air isn't simulated very well. I don't think anything less than a K-13 has a chance with the current weather model.
