This video is proof of addiction. If there is any doubt that DLG is like a drug, what else could have a grown man doing the "ride the pony" dance move while catching and launching? That was priceless and I almost fell out of my chair! DLG launch moves shown at 2:50 and 3:50 marks......

We played the Star Spangle Banner at about 3/4 volume and it hurt your ears if you were standing too close to the speakers. I think they probably heard it in Brigham City. Should be all set for our next contest.

I'm uncertain as to what RAD means, but:

RDS= Rotary Drive System This is a method of ail/flap control that puts all linkages internally, reducing over-all drag.

RES= Rudder, Elevator, Spoiler. A class of TD ships. Not specifically related to DLG, but I've heard DLG guys talk about them.


Now that I think about it, RAD "might" be Rotary Aileron Drive.. more or less the same thing as RDS.
