    How to start this airplane:

    because this doesn't have an engine you can spawn it in the air,
    by pressing F8 then pgUp for a while and then F7 or just use the engine.
    You may need to wiggle the flightstick left-right to overcome friction.

    About the thermal lift feature:
    What is a glider without thermal lift? Kind of boring. So this is why this mod has some sort of wind simulation for thermal lift.

    How to use it ?
    This feature is active by default. If you want to change the difficulty of the Simulation you can change the values in the tuning section of the vehicle

    The red arrow points towards the nearest thermal.

    If you don't want information about thermals or no engine, you can disable them in the vehicle's parts menu.

    At least some hints:

    Best manueverability if the airspeed is in the green marked range.
    Fly slower if you are in a thermal, this will give you more vertical Speed.
    Be carefull if airspeed is in the yellow marked range.

      have you tried to remove the mod manually and reinstall it again? I've tested this mod with the newest BeamNG version and it seems to work.

    Very well done mod! I like the design and how it flies smoothly! Only thing is that, if you catch an high amount of speed, air makes too much force on the plane and breaks the parts. And also, I know this isn't supposed to come with an engine, but if we could add it would be the best airplane mod I've ever seen, but that's not important since you can F8-F7 it and fly in a fantastic smooth way! Good work :D

    Such a great mod, exploring several map into the sky and the feeling of freedom is indredible. Congratulations for all this hard work. If you want to continue to improve your mod maybe you could add some water ballast that the user could modify in the tuning menu, a trailer for this glider with the wings that can be detached or attached, and maybe a system to launch the glider into the sky. You can be proud of your work ;)

    Great mod really like to fly around and challenge me to keep it up in the air.
    Just small things I like to point out is, that the ailerons have few problems in two areas.
    First: they create too much lift. It is possible to fly with one wing missing, because the ailerons create so much lift.
    Second: They break a bit too early. Normaly in the yellow marked range it is still possible to fly without breaking stuff, but sometimes even with small imputs I get damage at the them.
    Also I would like a bit less stiff wings.

    It sounds like I don´t like it but that is far from the truth
    Keep going, I like it
