    I'll use your post, when i start the Thread about my project ; i
    do not want to wander ,(Off-Topic).

    I never flew an Atos glider. When i thermal with my friends
    who own the Atos , I can climb in a thermal "With" them
    but when we exit the lift ; they pull away from me Fast, like
    i'm flying a Paraglider. The Atos , was quite an improvement
    over the Exxtacy ; but the builders are proud of that design
    with a price-tag of over $ 20-k + !

    Does anyone on this list have experience with both the three axis and the hang glider version to make comments about the pros and cons of each version?

    Takeoff and landing field requirements. Comfort versus performance. Cost, transport and setup. Controlability and flight envelope limitations.
