The NCFM M60
The Slope / DS machine that can take a punch!
Simply put if you could only have one airplane for nearly all conditions the M60 is it! Built to manual specs it will sustain with agility in winds as light as 4mph... it will scream through massive gusty turbulent conditions like it's on rails... it will slam a turn that is mind-blowing and the speed and energy retention are phenomenal. It is also our favorite aircraft for Dynamic Soaring given the ability to punch through nasty shear layers and achieve blistering speeds with the utmost stability.
If you have a chance to fly one DO IT... you will love it! If the pilot wont relinquish his transmitter to a stranger (which is very understandable) maybe just watch it for a little while... carving... turning... right-side up... upside-down... screaming by your head making you want to duck (cursing at the pilot)... specking out in thermals... giant graceful massive 500 ft loops... dizzying DS grooves... and all with comfort that it can handle High-G loads and serious impacts!
