For ME , the solution is simple : i can separate the controls to my
spoilers , by adding sliders , and now i have independent control
surfaces, for massive drag , to be used for short field landings ; bin doing that on
the Fledge , with rudders, since 1980 ; so it’s is a kinda simple technique, that i’m
already use to.
Now a rag-wing pilot has No real , (viable) glide ratio control ; if he encounters
lift, on his approach , then there is a decent chance of an over-shoot, and there
is no way around it.

I think you should read what, “John Benario” had to say , (again) :
— “The page mentions that because of two pilot to pilot lawsuits the RRG is going to run a loss this year, and warns of long term viability because of suits like these. One of the suits being about”
“ a collision between a kiting glider and a glider coming in to land.

Seriously ? You Really said that ?? You honestly think that kiting a PG
is more important , than a pilot attempting to Land their glider ,(PG or HG) ??
Before you answer ; re-read what John Benario had to say , above.
Do Ya get it now ? Because i believe the usage permit that CSS has
for their club members ability to fly ; i think it’s contingent upon an insurance
policy, being in place ? What are ya gonna do , when it’s gone ? Or maybe
you haven’t thought it ? If something isn’t done promptly ; it is an
accident waiting to happen , and another lawsuit , just waiting to
take the RRG under. I already have a plan in place, if that happens , and i’m
still gonna get to soar gliders legally ; what are you going to do ?
