In this 161 page book we remorselessly show you the best part of working updraughts and the addiction of thermalling. We dare to unearth bizarre behaviour, which others seek desperately to hide, such as variometer flight or flying in the Tropics. For anyone with glue and cardboard at home we provide tips on how to create a souped-up model for thermalling. In the chapter on crisis situations we explain, which thermals pose a threat to your model and why, when the pilot feels compelled to land for lack of thermal activity, the glider inevitably picks out the only tree for miles around. For extreme flights we present a whole series of models guaranteed to be unsuitable (you will be amazed as to what flies in thermals). No one who has read this book has ever complained about landing with a full battery. By Markus Lisken and Ulf Gerber.
