I did gliding when I was at school and before I went to sea but apart from a few times flying light aircraft I hadn't touched the controls of a glider for about 50 years until around 2010 a forum member arranged an evenings' flying at Usk Gliding Club.
It was astonishing just how quickly it came back and on the 2nd flight i had control from the top of the winch launch right through landing it.

I remember hearing HoveDan's yell on his first ever glider flight as it went up at about 45 degrees within seconds of leaving the ground

Another odd thing, chatting with the instructor after we had put the aircraft away it turned out that we had both been to the same school, Farnham Grammar, although he was there some years after me.

I took this exact approach, reran new cables from an amp in the boot, could also run from the back of the headunit.
