Sound's like you gentleman had more than your alloted amount of fun on saturday, and it's super bowl weekend to boot! I would considder that to be a coup for sure, on the order of planning that is usually reserved to our better halves. I can't wait to join in! I've flown thermal and slope now for almost 30 years and not once, have I had the desire to compete on any level, but you guys make it sound like I'll be missing out!

RSRGUY3....... Who is liquidating many nitro's and electrics to fund a growing Thayercraft, ACP, and MGS addiction.
Oh.... your going to love this, I'm going into the machining buis with my son in law, I wonder what the mills will be doing in the off time?..........

Brandon – I found the link to the KF airfoil we talked about on Saturday.
Back in 2006 dougmontgomery built a 40” depron Kline Fogleman airfoil. On the second page of the thread are a couple of videos of it in flight.
Depron Dynamite DLG Video 2 (1 min 59 sec)

His rendition reminds me of something halfway between an Alula and a 1.5m DLG. It looks like he (dougmontgomery) was interested in making kits for sale and therefore his excitement over the KF airfoil may be a bit subjective. It looks like the KF airfoil has more application for sloping than in thermaling. It seems that people have lost interest in it, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t something to be learned from it. I am still curious a bit. Thanks for the lead.

LOL Brandon you were cool.

There was just too much to do to have time to take a lot of video. I brought a HD Cam and didn't even get it set up. Next time. I might have to bring someone along just to take pictures.

Good Video Jon

I was thinking the same thing... break the Stobel and then switch to the Eagle, how did he not get more points on the board

Hey guys, one of our own has thrown his hat in the ring for R/C related podcasts.

Mike Connor a.k.a Demonspawn is one of the hosts on "Hangar Time". Their latest episode is DLG related and you may recognize the name of the 'special' guest. It's a basic introductory interview, to some of the aspects of DLG.
