After seeing comments and requests from viewers, we created this episode on DLG's.
The newest DLG glider that David is flying is the Neos from ArmSoar.
The first thing to do with any glider is to chuck it into the wind and make sure everything is working correctly.
The handle is designed to be held with the pads of the fingers.
Everybody will have thier own unique style of throwing but generally you want to keep your arm straight when throwing.
When launching, you want to throw into the wind and aim for the horizon.DLG's also known as hand launched gliders are refered to as F3K in the competition world. When flying, search around for areas with lift, cross the wind and watch the plane. With practice you will begin to understand how the DLG works.The Neos is hand-crafted with Carboline STF, fiberglass and other lightweight composite materials and features a rudder.
Flying hand launched R/C gliders is a unique experience and is something everyone should try.
