my favourite site (for thermalling) is enclosed by two golf courses in the far upper right of the image
I feel like I have literately spent my entire summers flying at dubby and why not its such a great place to fly. The Libelle slopes well here too as per my quick video ( this was a maiden )

Dream Flight libelle (0 min 33 sec)




I live in Mosman and have flown my FPV motorglider accross harbour and sloped it there and then flew back ! Im sure the other guys flying just could not work out where I was sitting... little did they know it was 6 ks away !

That is an AMAZING flying site! Am I understanding you right? You flew 6 kilometers across bay? How could you even see it?

Yeah we have some very cool slope sites around Sydney and particularly northern beaches where we live.

Yes - 6 Ks away. Flown with FPV system and UHF TX. I have flown over 17ks away before. Its all possible for not a lot of money now. In fact, there is a micro downlink available that would work well on a Libelle. http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/...tter-spmva1100

New to dlg, basically a heli guy. Saw a fellow fly a dlg a couple years ago at a funfly and was fascinated. Ordered a Dream Flight Labelle to get started and give this a go. Read this entire thread and watched numerous youtubes which was a huge help since no one in this area flies dlg. Had a few rough launches to start, after 3 outings the launches are getting better and flying a basic circuit is where I'm at. I think I'm really going to enjoy flying these, looking forward to warmer weather to get out more.

Nice to hear fan bird! I am just ahead of you Am looking forward to progressing!

Do you live near a place suitable for slope soaring? This plane loves that!
