Although I appreciate the utility of a motorglider, I'd like to suggest that it misses half the point; the element of risk involved while searching out lift in a true sailplane is what makes the game. Those moments spent near the ground, hunting weak lift from any source available; thermal, ridge, shear... suddenly rewarded with just enough gain to bring the ship back to an altitude high enough that I can again gamble on my direction....those moments are acid-etched; they are real. Later, catching a strong thermal, I am elated, truly transported by the achievement. I'm not convinced my feeling would be as deep had I a convenient Rotax aboard. Well, to each his own; see you at 10,000 feet!
