    Hi Alex, I've flown this very stable Topmodel "Ideal" glider for 9 flights now and it flies as though it were on rails...Amazing!!! This flight, and how I thermal, was no different to any other flight (they usually last way in excess of 1.5hrs and I have to drag it down), however, the AHI drifted at the top of the thermal (approx 40mins in on you tube not RVOSD timer) leading to a dive!! I took it out of FBW and did a few loops....(I'm not used to flying without stabilizers any more as I've flown with FBW for in excess of 10 years and boy was it hairy). My question is, what could have caused it? I know a dive can do it, but this happened before the dive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
