launch peg advice

Recommended Posts


I'm currently building my first 1.5m dlg (a longshot 4 )  it comes with a round peg, is it worth me buying a flat one? If so what type would u recommend with a  foam wing

Long time since I launched a dlg, but a flat peg is always better than a round one.

You get more power into the launch and your fingers don't get so sore.

Have a look here I think this one would be best but there are a number on the site that would be good for the Longshot.


Some reinforcement of the tip may be necessary to spread the launch loads.

This might help with the peg installation.  The blade is way better than the round peg.

My first DLG was a Long Shot and it's still a good choice.  Let us know how you get on.  You will soon be finding lift and soaring with the birds!

Longshot is definately one of the best for beginners to DLG. I launch as hard as anyone and have tried to rip the wings off one of these...but the model can easily handle it.... goes up as straight as an arrow too :)
