Does it take a 4 meter wingspan to get these low thermals? If a DLG was there could it do the same?

And do the 4 meter planes fly as slow as they look in the videos, or is it a size thing, they look slower because they are bigger?

Anyone have a video with a F5J and a DLG flying together for comparison?

If you watch the video the 4M is left behind the 3.44M Crozilla as it climbs in the thermal, so a DLG at 1.5M and 270 grams I think would easily out climb both.

The AMA sent out an email this week requesting all members reach out to their elected representatives, as the FAA is back on the 400ft limit no exceptions track, with more limitations to follow.


Really bummed,

Bonjour je vole à 100mm de cg peu etre un peu avant a mon goût.
Pour les débattements apparemment mais a confirmé!!! beaucoup vol avec 50% de différentiel aux ailerons, les volets ne bougent pas en ailerons, la voilure baisse de 15mm aligné.
Moi je vol avec 30mm en haut et 20mm en bas ailerons, volets 5mm en haut et 4mm en bas. Voilure 15mm en bas aligné

Le planeur n'est pas très connu mais je trouve qu'il monte fort dans la pompe. Qualité/prix c'est le meilleur.
Mes réglages sont à peaufiné.

Just checked cg before having a tangle with a Maxa which I lost, and have 110mm, which is highly reactive to lift. However, the designer, manufacturer and pilot Nikola Francic, of the Crozilla uses 100mm, but has added 1.5mm positive decalage/incidence to the stab. So you could experiment with these parameters.

Trust me you will have fun.

Thank you Robert, I heard that Nikola uses 103mm CG meanwhile.
