finally got around to maiden the Salto in a small gap in the c weather. spent most of the flights adjusting nose weight. tried with and without winglets- with winglets it seemed to perform better. Spoilers are very effective. Had a new frsky g8xr receiver but had poor signal so this shortened the flights.
