good. ???

i flew a pheobus C once for about 45 minutes. i found it to be pretty docile. i noticed that keeping the yaw string straight required a little more attention than with newer glass gliders.

I also thought that the seat was a little uncomfortable, but that's the kind of thing that can be tweaked.

Rigging was a pain for that particular pheobus, i don't know if the others were like that too.

but it flew well, thermalled nice, and landed really easy. the approach speed felt slow, and the glider felt draggy, which made for an easy landing.
