Glory is designed as a more overstable version of the Explorer, and we wanted it to fit between the Explorer and Pioneer in stability. A control driver that you can trust to fly straight, even if it’s a windy day or if you have a big arm, but not the kind of overstability where it wants to fade hard and fast. We wanted the Glory to fly slow and dependable with slow movements from side to side. It has a lot glide, and you can work it on a lot of different shot shapes with it.
