Found it very broken and difficult to centre for first 100km+ and lost a lot of time just trying to survive. Conditions improved from there with the best lift over the high ground up to 5500+ft amsl. As I'd lost so much time earlier in the flight I wasn't sure I would get back before it all shut off but it was very satisfying to complete the task after such a slog - beer please!
