Ok, so cadets is buying a motor glider to complement the other gliders that cadets own, so it got me thinking, what do others think of motor gliders? The glider being bought is a Grob 109, which I have never ever seen in real life, let alone flown in, so it should be interesting what its like. However, I recently flew a Dimona (which wasnt the best flight ever, but im sure you can find my rant thread about it if you are really interested, so Im not going to repeat it), but i wasnt overly impressed by the way it flew. I have been told that it is not the nicest dimona around, but regardless, you had to push the rudder pedals REALLY hard to get any movement at all from them, and once they were pushed in, it felt like they didnt want to center, and you had to push them hard again to center them to fly straight. On top of this, I just didnt like the way it flew either. So lets have a discussion, has anyone flown them? What do you think of the way they fly? Is the way I described that dimona typical of a motor glider, and has any one had any flight time in a grob?
