There are rarely and collisions. There is an area that one launches from and must land in but it is big enough so that everyone has plenty of space around them.

Tomorrow, Saturday, looks pretty rainy, which we really need, and Sunday looks pretty decent.

Do you know where the field is? I can give you the location if you need it. If you want send me an email.

CrickleWood:
Just curious if you made to the DLG trials? I know that Saturday's weather was a washout...but as I recall, Sunday was pretty fair. I would be interested in reading about the event.

Cheers!
Lyle

Re: DLG/HLG Gliders Thread

I did on Sunday though I didn't fly. I gather that they got a bit of flying in on Saturday and quite a bit more on Sunday. I am not sure of the final results. Maybe someone else has that information and can post it.

Re: DLG/HLG Gliders Thread

We managed to get 1 round in on Saturday before the rain came, and another 11 on Sunday. A huge variety of conditions made for lots of ballast changes, land-outs, etc. Results are attached.

Re: DLG/HLG Gliders Thread

I'm looking to give DLG a try. I'm already hooked on higher end electric thermal gliders and composite hotliners. It's almost a garuntee that I'm going to love it and I don't want to waste money on something that I'll soon grow out of. I've been looking at the Go 2, Blaster 2, Predator 2.5, etc. The all up cost with shipping is pretty steep, so I though I might as well see if anyone has a used airframe out there that they are willing to ship?

Let me know what you've got.

Re: DLG/HLG Gliders Thread

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll look into it! I am leaning towards something full size, otherwise I know I'll just be buying another shortly after.

I have gotten in touch with rcc user takeoffeh and he's helped me source some parts to piece one together. I think that will be a great route of it works out because I'll end up with a top notch machine.
