Jason - have you heard of that new HK "Versus" DLG kit? Any news on how that flies? I'll have to look up the thread here on RCG... but for a 60'' DLG, under $200 isn't bad, but who knows what kind of quality it is.

Nope. As far as I know they haven't shipped out. The guy is busy in work and such... hopefully I'll get them and build them before spring, when thermals start popping out

I have had the itch lately for some gliding, so when they do come in I'll be happy!

Cale, if you're thinking about trying DLG.. just TRY it.. you fly at a field right? I'm sure there's somebody there that has to have a DLG or two that he'll let you launch/fly. Otherwise, the Binary 900 DLG is about $150 to build and it's one heck of a lot of fun. All the powered flyers will never understand what we DLG people are talking about until they actually try it themselves!

Yeah but I'm sure it doesn't glide as far as a DLG...

And... discuss launching one of those beasts would be less than ideal...

Yeah dlgs are really fun. I mean what other plane lets you fly for 45 min on a 330mah lipo?! Haha maybe a sloper. If any of you try dlg and only throw 30 feet and fly for 30 sec before landing dont be discouraged. Just pick a nice sunny day with a slight breeze and just watch the airplane. It is pretty easy to spot thermals if you know what your looking for.

Electric is better in 30cc though. Gas is better for 50cc and up Gas is too much vibration in a 30cc bird.

Amen. The 119" feels way more like a glider though
