Orion-C is very light weight thermal sailplane with flying weight approx. 790 grams (27.7 oz.) The wing is based on SD7080 high lift airfoil that was specially modified for this sailplane, the benefit of that are excellent thermal abilities with very wide speed range. The Orion wing also could be built as a polyhedral wing for pure thermal flying if desired by the builder.
