    Stream NXT

    I have just about finished my red NXT, but have bench flown my orange one and Gavin's yellow one :-) Hoping for acceptable flying weather on Sunday! Looks like it will come out at about 235-240g I may do a build thread when I build the orange one.
  2. Now that winter testing is fully underway, I can see the benefit of a telemetry receiver in gauging practice launch heights. I recall at last April's try it day at Buckminster that someone was using a Lemon telemetry receiver. I assume it was a Lemon LM0051. Question is will it work safely on a single Lipo? 3.7v-4.02v. Literature for an LM0051 suggests not - 4.5v min. I currently use a Lemon RX6 which runs fine for over an hour on a 1s lipo.

    1m DLG Competition?

    Is there a separate competition / league for 1m class DLG’s? Apologies if I’ve missed it, but cannot find any posts on the forum.
  4. I am ordering a Revolution from Kristof and thought that if anyone else would like one, we can save on shipping. Might even be able to get shipping free. Besides knowing that Kristof makes high quality DLG's, I was impressed with it at the WC last year and I fancy giving it a go. The surface finish Kristof achieves is really good (higher grade Rohacell, I believe) and the screw-free wing fitting is really clever. So, let me know if interested. I have ordered a std wing one in orange, should take about 4 weeks. There are order forms on his website. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/sh

    Spektrum AR6270T RX & DLG's

    Hi all. Has anyone out there had any experience with Spektrum AR6270T RX telemetry (vario / alt) in a DLG? I know Spekrum isn't necessarily everyone's favourite but I have a DX9 TX and use the telemetry in my larger gliders (Expro F3B) and would really like to try one out in a new DLG. Any help / guidance would be most appreciated (as long as it isn't - ditch the Spektrum kit). I'm looking at getting a new / second hand DLG as I am moving on from a Blaster 3. Any recommendations? Cheers Paul.
  6. I bought a new DLG from Armsoar and I see on the tracking that it is held in Coventry for customs inspection. I believe that this was sent from Hong Kong. Do you think there will be a tax charge? How will they notify me if there is? Do you think the customs officials will recognise what it is and not mistreat the packaging and contents etc?

  9. Hi guys, Bit of a long shot but anyone in the Midlands/Worcestershire area up for having a fly with me? I have my new Snipe together but my flying is terrible, i thought i was getting there when i had my Blaster 3.5 but since switching to the Snipe i'm really having a difficult time and feeling like quitting dlg. I read you have to keep the speed up with these models, but since i always fly alone i have no idea what the optimal speed looks like. I'm also losing a lot of height in turns. And then there is my launch height, i don't know if it's not accurate as i can't get it to z

    KST 08 servos

    So, over on RC Groups they are discussing the quality and life of the KST 08 servos and they seem really hit and miss. But there are a lot more USA dlg fliers than there are UK fliers so naturally problems may show up with more of them being used over there. You guys here in the UK using them, how are you finding them? i had 4 in Blaster 3 but i didn't own that for very long and have 4 for my Vortex. But, if they are becoming a bit hit or miss, i would rather not finish the build with them and use something else, i'd rather go to something not as well spec'd but that's going to last, rath
  12. Hi all As I'm sure you all know by now, my knowledge of electronics is patchy at best.....so..... Can I ask for your help with a subject that has appeared before on this (and the other forum) but is still bothering me? Colleagues have suggested that, when I fit out my "spare" DLG, an Elf lookalike from HobbyKing, I use the opportunity to change my usual power source, a 4-cell AAA NiMh battery for a 2S LiPo of 340 mah capacity - which, I'm told, will retain its charge longer and be smaller and lighter than the nimh......... My problem is this, when I looked up the necessary

    Elf on a diet...

    Just a very quick little build thread... I've wanted an Elf for a while and figured the winter period would be an ideal time to fettle one together whilst I couldn't fly. I've just finished the first of my Stream NXT's and needed a little light relief before tackling the second one. Best part of all, was it being an unstarted bargain from eBay... Following advice from a few internet threads and Boffin from here, I'd decided to modify the Elf right from the start, there are enough stories on the net about wobbly tails, pitch instability and broken fuselages to suggest that whilst the

  15. Carlos and I are getting together to fly in Richmond park next Sunday. All are encouraged to join us. Its just a 'fun' flying day but I am keen to help out any new pilots to DLG. Later I will post details of the field location for anyone who hasn't been before, but you will want to park at Sheen Gate car park and walk down from there.

    Thermal or not?

    Hi guys, So i was out yesterday having a fly with my Elf and trying to set a good flight time for the challenge. Now the field i was flying from is very slightly sloped, is only slight but where we enter the field and usually stand to fly from is higher than the other end of the field. At the other end there are bushes/trees separating it from another field which are all level at that point. Yesterday while flying my Elf, it was a warm day with a nice breeze that kept picking up and dying, few big cumulus clouds about, i was flying upwind as we cannot fly downwind of where we s

  18. I am going to order contact wing connectors and I can only find them available in the states. Farnell offer them, but delivered from a US warehouse. Digikey deliver pretty quickly though, and the price is good, about £1.60 a set, but to get free delivery, I need to order 32 sets. Anyone else want a couple of sets? I want to order asap, so please let me know asap! http://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail/en/70AAJ-4-M0G/70AAJ-4-M0GCT-ND/3437853 http://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail/en/70AAJ-4-F0G/70AAJ-4-F0GCT-ND/3767621

    Vortex 2

    So, last night when i got home from work, there was a rather large box in the hallway and i new exactly what it was...yup, my new Vortex 2! (Happy Christmas to myself!) This might be a build thread, but i'll be quite a slow builder so if you follow along then i apologize. Also i currently have no manual or have found a build thread of my own and it's the first time i will have built a model with top drive so this is all new to me and the model so beautiful that i want to take my time. I've flown on and off since '98 but only quite recently got into dlg gliders. When i first asked wha
