"Hands off" decent from altitude with spoilers? by MHende6388
I was taught during wave training that all sailplanes, properly trimmed, when you let go of the controls, will seek a gentle banked circle to one direction and maintain that attitude, even in light turbulence. There must be great variation from one a/c to the next with varied CG and...
