There's a big gap between the weight-shift controlled flex wing and the stick'n'rudder glider.
We have the choice of those two, and of course the spoileron type used on the rigids.
I would like to be independent of the positive-G-only thing, but I don't want rudder pedals. I think that a control "handle" of sorts would fit me best, where the "handle" can twist about a longitudinal axis for roll, pivot about a vertical axis for yaw, and tilt about a lateral axis for pitch. I would also appreciate being able to couple the roll and yaw functions, with a spring that I can over-ride should I wish to slip. Fly-by-wire is an intriguing idea. A thing shaped somewhat like the glider, mounted on a movable post, sized to fit my palm and without looking at it it's position and feel tell me just what trim condition I'm in. I press a button with my thumb, and then I tilt or twist or pivot the thing to a new trim setting, release the button and it tells the glider's servos what to do. An emergency dis-connect shuts it down by pulling the pins connecting the servos to the glider, and I'm back to manual control.
That's a bit far-fetched, but what the heck it's entertaining to imagine it. More realistic is me twisting the wings collectively or differentially, with a tail or canard surfaces taking up the pitching moments enough to leave me with very light stick forces. I am 'Lazypilot' after all.
I'm still imagineering just what a new type of Part 103 flying apparatus will look like. I am getting closer all the time, but there's just so much to consider and there are many demands on my time.
Some things that I know for sure: Any physical effort I have to use must go directly into the control of airflow around the glider. No more playing the middle man that weight-shift requires, no more having to be in a positive G condition to have control of the glider's attitude. I've had enough of a glider still rotating nose-up even with the bar stuffed. No more slow sluggish response to my roll input. No more fighting the damn built-in up-elevator on a windy launch.
And I'm not concerned about set-up and breakdown issues. If it takes twice or thrice the time to put it together it will be worth it to have a glider that is truly airworthy, something I haven't seen yet.
If I can't have it my way I'll just do without. No more settling for a hot dog when I'm wanting a steak. I'm better off hungry, maybe if I get hungry enough I'll get up and make it. But it's a big job for an old phart.
