How much weight do you think it added?


Did not weigh it. There is not much to decal film.

JPC, what is the $1000 DLG you are dreaming of you mentioned in the podcast?

That would be the Stobel V3. I was wrong, it's $1000 with the servos, it's "only" $800 for the airframe. :roll:

Nice. For something closer to $500, I recommend the Blaster 3, I picked one up from Kennedy Composites here in Dallas so I was able to save on shipping (although with tax it's nearly a wash).

I've flown an earlier version of the Blaster and liked it, so that would definitely be a good one that doesn't scare the wallet so much. Barry is a good guy too, I haven't seen him in probably 15 years or more. :face

Hmm. Low wing DLG... that just don't look right. :thinking

I do love how he secures his pull-pull strings at the servo though, that's exactly how I've been doing it since the 90's. :D

There was a lot of discussion of low v high wing in his Version 2 thread. Low wing won.
Tends to get the elevator out of the turbulance off the wing. Whatever works best.

More importantly, it is more afforadable - not totally, but definately more. :mrgreen:
