That's great news!

Good point. I know we've held F3J Trials quite 'late' because of MAAC's rules about the lead-time required for a Team Selection event. Will you contact Simon or shall I?

It _can_ be very nice - we usually host our NWSS Spring Tune Up in late April/early May and we have had beautiful weather

Selling an ELF DLG

Hi

I bought an ELF to see if my body would handle the launching. Unfortunately, this is not going to work. I am going to go for a 2m electric glider instead. If you are interested in the ELF give me a call. I have been flying it for about 3 weeks. It is amazing what it will do in the air I have had it in. No damage at all, it is pretty strong. It has the d 47's and Smart lipo. I have a 6255 but will keep that. $300. 604-222-8535 John

I am considering the same scenario but Im looking for a full size DLG maybe an older blaster or something sturdy. I feel like my shoulder is 97% I managed ot get in 12 sets of bench press and 9 sets of flies and the only pain I get now is when I sleep on my shoulder. I think I am ready to lean into a DLG...

Some %$#&#! beat me to a steal on a stobel by 13 minutes! so close!

OK so, im out of touch on DLG models of late and I see guys in this tread talking about Neo's and other related models. I frankly dont know which ones are worth considering and I think ill get two different types - one for wind and practise throwing and a lite unit for no wind contest days...

I need them to be super tough for monster throws. My arm and shoulder feel pretty stout now and at 80-90% last season I got 180+ feet launches on my stobel with harder throws...I was concerned thatt he stobel might not survive for long...

I inflicted some damage on a members predator - I "felt" like the throw was flat and in good form but it was quite hard...I dont want to repeat that.

What would you guys reccomend ?

Webbsolution,

Where are you located? I have a Blaster B3 spreadtow wing that I'm asking $475 for. All servos, battery, ready to fly. Flies nice. Had a mid air, so there is a LE repair , little ugly, but I didn't paint it so that the buyer could see the repair. Repair is smooth and airfoil isn't damaged. These things are $750 delivered, plus servos.

I'm in Olympia until first week in Novemeber. PM me if interested.

Gary

I like the Stoble V3 and the Blaster 3 ST. The Concept Xtreme 2 flies nice also but I have not flowen one.
I am a little prejudice though because I just finished a new Stoble and since the rain started, I started on a new Blaster.
