Setup and Tuning Model Sailplanes by Paul Naton

Paul Naton - Setup and Tuning Model Sailplanes (44 min 30 sec)

All are invited to South Bay Soaring Society's next program at 7:45pm Pacific Standard Time Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at the main Saratoga Fire Station.

Paul Naton of Radio Carbon Art is probably the most viewed resource on all things associated with Thermal Duration, Slope Soaring and Discus Launch (DLG) gliders. Most all of us in the hobby have seen at least one of his videos and owe Paul a debt of gratitude for bringing professional level video training on most any aspects of sailplane flying. Taking advantage of his latest work in sailplane tuning (see Precision Tuning Techniques) our next Wednesday Program will cover the following subjects via FaceTime video:
  • New concepts in flight tuning
  • Importance of mechanical setup
  • Optimizing snap-flap, camber and elevator mixes
  • Finetuning aileron differential
  • Mixing ailerons and rudder
  • Testing CG (center of gravity) without a dive test
  • How to fly with CG set further aft
  • How to flight test your plane
  • Troubleshooting setup and tuning problems

If time allows Paul will touch on some of his latest work in advanced air reading to help your thermaling. Please join us and learn how to get more performance out of your glider while reducing your effort to fly.

The South Bay Soaring Society Program is held every 2nd Wednesday of the month at the main Saratoga Fire Station at 14380 Saratoga Ave, Saratoga, CA 95070 (except December and January). The business meeting starts at 6:30pm and the program begins sometime after 7:45pm. Anyone is welcome to attend either meeting and you can bring friends.

Sorry this meeting will not be broadcast as a Web meeting, however it will be recorded and posted to our the South Bay Soaring Society YouTube channel.
