Heading out to do some DLG chuckin' on the beach. Just south of Dave's beach at the west end of Palomar Airport road. Super low tide, big beach, and a GoPro. Should be fun.

launch height can't fix stupid
Are there any dlg "get togethers" during december? I have moved out to the high desert but the family is lagging about a month, so I have some time to travel to fly.

Well I made it out to ElDo this morning (2nd time flying in about 2mos!). Completely socked-in with pea-soup fog. But easy 5min air! The only catch was being limited to about 125' altitude before losing the model in the fog!

Cleared up a little after 10 - turned into a fantastic day!

I think my back could still use a couple weeks of healing, but I'll try and get out Sunday morning.

Matt, it makes me smile to know that you are back out throwing gliders. I am really happy your back realized it works for you, not the other way around. It looks like Brian now has a sore back. You must have passed it on to him. I hope you feel better, Brian.
Cheers

Putting this out there, I thought this thread would be a god place to start looking -

I am looking for someone to build a new DLG for me. I bought a beautiful new DLG, but have had exactly zero time to build or fly. I've realized that if I have any intention of flying it in the next year, I need to have someone else build for me, so I can use my occasional free time to actually fly.

I have the plane seen here. Wing is joined and mated to the fuse, it just needs the tail attached, pushrods run, and electronics installed. I'm looking for someone who can do a clean build, probably top drive and steel in teflon for the tail, though I'm open.

If that's something you'd be interested in, please PM me and we can talk payment and such.

Slow motion @ eldo

I'm not really a video guy, but here's a few launch clips from last weekend at Eldo.

It's a casio ex-fh100. Slow motion video analysis always tends to bring out the little things
