DLG's are sooo addicting! I flew them all weekend in a regional contest. Jun, the guy from the video, was there too! We had guys from California, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Idaho, and Wyoming. I can't say enough about getting out to a local or not so local contest. You will learn more in one or two days time then you would in a year on your own. Everyone I've met so far has been very helpful and willing to teach, even help with all those tricky mixes that you need.

We also had a 1/2 time show put on by Andrew Jesky (not typical of these events, but wow!)

Wow, AJ puts on a heck of a show! :thumbup:
Looks like you had a great event, I wish I could have made it out there. Maybe next year!

I enjoyed watching your DLG flying on the "alternate flightline" at SRC yesterday, Chris. Now I will know what you're talking about when you discuss DLGs on the show.

Thanks Alan! It's not all that exciting to watch, really, but it's fun to do. :)

You're not watching the right guy's then :p , the guy's who can launch 200'+ are exciting to watch. It's probably more exciting to those who fly them though, as it gives us something to shoot for.

I flew with one of the guys at lunch today in some floaty conditions, I launch in the 120~150' range. He was launching to 170' easily with a Steigeisen. Those molded planes sure do launch!

You really don't want me trying it, not yet anyway. Let me get some powered flight under my belt and then I'll consider it.
