    3 axis flying is so boring, you will have more fun catching a bus (and this is from someone who started out on Fixed Wing).

    Go for a "real" flight in a Flexi and you'll see what I mean.

    3 Axis. Warm in the winter when a lot of the lawn mowers have been put to bed because its cold.

    I'll second that and this is also from someone who started out on 3 axis and even went group A for a while! I now prefer to be part of my flying machine rather than sitting in it and picking my nose due to the boredom. Flexwing for the younger guys, 3 axis for the older pilots.

    Looks like 3-axis then

    To be honest ive spent a lot of time sat in aeroplanes either in the back or in the RH seat and the flexie does appear, on the outside of course, to put an whole new perspective on flying?

    I did more flying (flexwing) over the winter than in this so called spring/summer. so mabe if you put yout flex away for winter you should go 3 axis

    Flyable days in the winter are better than the summer IMHO you just have to make sure you're dressed for it.
    Happy Safe Flying
