Cygnet or Pottier P130?If I'm reading this right (big if), what's called for here is less span, more area, and a modest wing loading. The sort of thing you'd traditionally get with a lot of fabric covered area. The picture I'm starting to get is like a Cygnet with long wings on which the outboard sections fold or detach to fit into a hangar. I like the Cygnet's configuration because it allows good visibility of the type you need in thermals. I've soared Aeroncas and Taylorcrafts, but the high-wing configuration has poor turning visibility even with a transparent skylight.
