So I can across a deal posted by a friend on RCgroups. A few of us had been looking at a new inexpensive DLG (Discus Launched Glider) and one of the distributors ran a 50% off sale around Easter. So a few of us jumped on the deal and waited. The planes started arriving and we debated the gear we’d put in them. I finally pt mine together last night. The build was quite simple for anyone that has put a few airplanes together. However there were no instructions included and what I gleamed from the web helped but there were still gaps in the instructions that left me to think it out. Well it didn’t take too long as I was able to finish it in an evening with multiple interruptions.
This morning I took it out to a soccer field before work and gave it a few tosses. It was fairly tame and once I got the launch method down it was not too bad. I was able to keep it in the air for about 30 seconds at most but it was a cool morning with no wind so lift was not to be found.
I’ll give it some more flights and report back on my thoughts about this entry level DLG.
