I expect it would be very much the same as my Eze Glider that I converted to pure glider for slope soaring.
A little sluggish on roll compaired to a flying wing but otherwise worked just fine.

Re: Alberta Slope Patrol guide

A full size dlg is my next purchase. The flight test guys have a really good dlg video featuring the Armsoar NEOShttp://www.armsoar.com/


David teaches Josh how to discus launch and he shares some tips for achieving a successful flight with your DLG.

Enjoy David

Post a pic of what you get.... The Neos looks very nice.
DLG's can fly slope well when the right conditions are available. Also provide opportunities for sloping such as buildings, tree lines, and other places with marginal lift that require a light wing load and an agile handling airframe. Thomas R recently posted an excellent video demonstrating this.

Re: Alberta Slope Patrol guide

Very nice TS3 David. Should do well in our local conditions. I see you went with top drive on the flaperons. What servos did you use? Is the AUW under 9 oz?
I think there are a few guys around here with DLG's. Great to have when the slope winds don't blow.
Bob.

Re: Alberta Slope Patrol guide

Be a couple days before I actually get my glider from http://armsoar.com Bob. I think the ts3 is the same as the one you have, the only difference is the stiffer carbon wing. I hope to get under 10 oz.
I know Scott Currie has a gladiator he has yet to put together for fear of doing something wrong with the build. I would like to drop by your house again soon so that i can have a lookie see at how you have put a dlg together.
I loved flying my mini dlg from armsoar and am really looking foreward to flying a low weight large wingspan yet portable glider such as this.
Its been a 14 year xperiment trying out everything the rc hobby that peeks my interest and it all seems to point to dlg. The dlg style glider is going to tie together both my thermal and slope interests. We have some interesting times ahead.

Re: Alberta Slope Patrol guide

Sorry... thought the pic you posted was your finished glider, so you have yet to receive your kit? Mine is a Viper II, an earlier version platform with carbon dbox and Kevlar layup. Your full carbon layup wing will perform very well. You are most welcome to check mine out before and during the build. The mods I did on mine include RDS flaperons, FF stab, and pull spring on the rudder.
Didn't know Scott has a G2. Recently completed mine but haven't test flown it yet. Scott, if you need them I have an extra set of G2 stab and fin/rudder as I did not use these in my build. Also, there is a couple of things you should be aware of before you get into the build.
That was some awesome video that Thomas posted showing a DLG ripping the slope with light lift conditions. His stick skills are very apparent.
Dale, you should not keep putting off getting yourself a DLG any longer.
Bob.

Found an F3K timing app for android. Thought I would share it here:
