In 2002 I bought a UP Birdy while still taking flying-lessons. After 1 year I got my pilot-2 licence.
For both learning as well as flying after getting my licence, the Birdy brought me a lot of fun.

As it is a very easy glider to fly, it gives a lot of confidence and gives the pilot the opportunity to get the feeling of how to handle a hanglider.

Still now, 3 years after getting my pilot-licence, it gives me a lot of fun.
Especially when soaring the Dutch dunes, I come back with a big smile when I finish a 3-hour flight.

In mountain-conditions when thermalling, it's fun, but heavy flying.
I have no experience with other gliders, but I find that it takes some effort to put it in a turn when thermalling. But thermalling for almost 2 hours with a single-surface glider of (for about?) 15 years old, also gives me a lot of fun.
