1. to control the glider, and then
2. to push out when the pulling pressure disappears (with a correct trim)
Happy landings, Raymond

For real though, most of those landings had me cringing. Is there some logical reason people decide to transition before trim? Results in dropping airspeed and popping up at what I'm pretty sure is still an altitude that could still seriously injure if one gets some really bad luck with the air... 2:54 for example. Almost none of them produce a period of level flight on the ground, they just sink into it and flare. Am I missing something here? Is there some legitimate technique on display here that I just don't "get"? I mean at 3:54 there's a guy on a topless that sinks in at or under trim and then stalls himself into the ground. Why?
