Thanks for the video.

In all of these DLG videos I keep on seeing the flying field is a large, flat area, where you can land the DLG pretty much anywhere. Is this typical? Do I need this type of flying field for learning?

You need a pretty good open area until you are comfortable with managing the energy in the glider. At first, you will likely undershoot or overshoot your landings and do a lot of walking. :)
