ELF DLG - 1st launch in over a year


ELF DLG , been a long time (14 min 4 sec)


I really like the ELF , amazing technology built into a 2ch glider .
Lift ? Where is the lift ?
I got teased by some rising air , just a tease . We just dont have much lift around here , lot's of sink , but that lift .
Next time I will try a lighter / smaller battery and have a more rearward CG .

Rusty flying on my part . Quite a few times I pushed the nose over too quickly , I might have got another 10 meters if I did not pull the trigger so early .

I just purchased an ELF. The fellow who sold it told me I needed a 1S battery, 220-250 mAh.

I have a small box of 150 mAh 1s batteries. Is there any reason I can't use those instead?

I use the batteries to control my CG ( was assembled that way ) .

I have used a 300mAh Nanotech 1s
Next I will be using a 150mAh 1s no name .

My Elf uses very little energy / battery . A decent 150mAh should give you at least 1 hour . ( If not more ) - Variable being components .
CG is 80mm + or - 2mm , I have been flying at around 75mm .
Which is why I will be moving to the smaller lighter battery for around 80mm CG
