Im not sure how much difference will be between carbon fiber golf clubs and CF DLGs, but, they recommend not to keep your golf clubs on temps over 200F, now, I dont think the car will get that hot, maybe if you leave it under direct sun light will get close, but you should be OK if your plane is not in direct sun light .......... make sure you have a cold drink next to it, just in case!

I am carefully to park in shade. I know Roland sr told me to use 120 degrees to get some warp out of my CX aileron and it worked. So for sure don't have any force on any wing surfaces as a car can easily go over 120 when its 95+ in the sun. After a couple hours a tx in the box is as hot as anywhere in the car but i say its fine. Not much difference from the car radio.
Jon boy, bring up a DLG and let's fly. I'm living in alpine now. I fly at alpine or better is mountain ridge school in highland.

I know Skyler uses a blanket of sorts to cover the DLG to keep it out of direct sunlight. But that doesn't protect the DLG from the 130+ temp's in the car...

Hi,

Just wanted to remind the flyers in Utah (any Idaho lurkers?) of the upcoming 2 day contest in Washington. I'm certain the Seattle Area Soaring Society would welcome you to a great contest, Sep 6 and 7.

Check the Pacific Northwest thread for info, etc.

Great field, great guys and great weather. What more can a hlg addict want?

Hey guys, coming to visit some family in Ogden this weekend. I thought I saw on the schedule some sort of contest or something on Sat Jul 26th when I looked last month. Now I can't find anything, in fact July is blank. Am I missing something? Was it changed? I don't think I'm quite there to fly in a contest yet, haven't gotten as much practice this summer as I'd hoped. But would love to come watch, maybe chat, see how a contest goes? Maybe time or help somehow?
Leaving tomorrow on the ferry after work. Gonna make Pendleton first night. Drive the rest Friday. Staying in Ogden. Any info would be great. I'll be checking this thread on my phone as we travel.

Doesn't look like the monthly contest is going to happen this weekend. Lack of interest, I guess, and too many people out of town. I'm down myself with a back injury and won't be flying at all for a while. There should be some guys flying this weeekend though, and you can probably hook up.

Hey, I finally found a sod farm in Tehachapi. Can you guys who've established relationships with farms give any pointers for how to approach them to ask permission to fly on their field?
