Utah DLG happenings...

This is a continuation of the "DLG flying in Utah" thread found here: Please go there to read the first 700+ posts dated 8/22/2010 - 11/10/2010.


I'm starting this new thread dedicated to DLG flying in Utah. This will be a place for all Utah DLG enthusiasts and wannabees to post and read notices of local fun-fly sessions, tips on launching/flying techniques, building, equipment, competition practice & strategies, photos & videos, etc. Anything and everything DLG.

This most challenging and most rewarding (the ultimate) RC discipline is tough to pursue alone. It is time to get all the closet DLG fliers around here organized, and start having some fun together and learning from each other. Bordering states are welcome to join us as well if your state doesn't have anything going yet (come on ID, WY, and NV!).

I also hope to make this the future home of "Team Utah" to support the "Blue Skies Over XX" series of DLG/F3K contest events currently held in AZ, NM, and CO (we will support other western US competitions as well). Go Team Utah!!! I hope we can eventually host our own annual "Blue Skies Over Utah" event to round out the Four Corners series. This will hopefully be a sanctioned USA F3K Tour and Team Selection qualifier event. (UPDATE: We did this in 2011 - 2014; plus the Utah Red Rock F3k Challenge in St. George, both of which are now annual events! BSoUT 2015 is scheduled for June 13-14 (location TBD).) If competition is not your thing then don't worry, this will be the place for casual flying as well.

When you go out to fly, please post a notice here to let others know so they can possibly join you. It is much more fun and educational that way.

If you have any interest in DLG, or think you may in the future, please subscribe to this thread and monitor it frequently. Also, please visit the Utah DLG website HERE.
