Does anyone know anything about the Sailplanes from Art Hobby (www.arthobby.com)?

The Amarillo club has at least 1 or 2 sailplane contests (not advertised so more or less club members only) and they have some really nice winches too. I'd like to participate and I've been interested in getting something to learn to thermal with when the weather is nice here. The composite stuff is nice but I'm more worried about less than perfect landings. To me they seem like something that's in-between a cheap kit like the Gentle Lady and Spirit from Great Planes and the composite stuff. I'd like to build it with ailerons and flaps too.

I'll have to see where I get with my EF Edge before buying the kit but it's also something that I could build one as a pure sailplane and another as an electric and be able to practice thermaling without having to mess with a high start or winch.

Ben, I haven't seen many of their planes in person, but they look decent. My only worry would be the strength of the wings for winching, since I don't really see anything mentioned about the spar construction.

The Odessy 2.7M looks pretty sweet.
