A bit of wind helps greatly with launches.

35 to 45 mph is a wee bit much

Been eagerly lapping up all the info on this thread and having great fun with my DG. It's set up for sloping and aero tow. Here's a short vid from a trip to the beach last weekend.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yep, bit lucky with the landing. The main landing grounds had cattle in them so I had to use a strip near the lip and got caught in a rotor while lining up to land, but just escaped. Only seems to happen when I have the camera going

Next up is aerotowing - yikes!

Just noticed the other day that FlyFly are listing five new scale 4m gliders:

ASW-15

DG-303

DG-505 (also a 2.6m version)

Duo Discus XL

LS8

Quite a variety of options available too: http://www.hobby88.com/shop/index.ph...sort=5a&page=1

Dang, I have already spent my Xmas and birthday money - wonder if I can get an advance on my Easter money

Might wait a bit and see how these new ones go - that 4m Nimbus was a bit of a stinker by all accounts.
