AZ - Chandler Bowl DLG team!

Hey guys,

WE have a "Chandler Bowl" dedicated thread over in the Club forum. But I thought it would be better if we have a thread over for our DLG crew.

I guess here we can post our DLG picture and maybe have a wall of Fame!

I will slowly post throwing video of all our pilots. I got just this camera, so I'm trying my best. Please make sure you enable the "HD" mode on Youtube.

*note, we also have a video showing a Mini 29inch Blaster II out throw a Vandal....

Let start with George
George - Stobel (2 min 2 sec)



Charlie
Charlie (1 min 4 sec)


Vu
Vu - Stobel (0 min 55 sec)



Lee
Lee - Vandal (1 min 14 sec)



Dirk
Dirk - Blaster II (0 min 43 sec)


Brad
Brad - DLG Blaster II (0 min 46 sec)


Scott (not yet record)

Dan (never see this dude fly)

Thanks for posting these guys. While I barely flew with you, it's nice to see a home field.

My dad was noticing a lack of "overhead" launch videos. It might be possible if one launches from near the backstop of a baseball field, with the camera mounted above.


On another note, I finally met up with Dirk to get some DLG pieces. It's gonna take some work to get these together, but with some patience, (and hopefully advice from those of you with building and repair experience), I should be able to get two flying DLG's out of the parts. My special thanks to both Guz and Shhhhh!

I picked up some 'glass and epoxy, but Royal didn't have any micro-balloons, and Ray at HH looked at me like I was speaking a foriegn language when I asked for them.

Does anyone know where there are micro-ballons in stock in town?
