We also recommend the new DLG Building Clinic to go along with this program.
The Handlaunch Tech Lab DVD training video teaches you how to use and install the latest hardware and radio gear in the new generation of composite and all-molded Handlaunch/F3K r/c gliders. If you fly a Stobel, Steigeisen, Salonet, Salpeter, Fireworks 5, Ultrega, Blaster 3, Taboo, Predator 2, Superfrak, Neos, Helios, XXL or what ever third generation plane you have, this training video is a must have. The cool thing about this program is that even if you don't fly HLG's, the tips and information on 2.4 radio systems, RDS, lithium batteries, and installation techniques can be applied to most sailplane kits.
I first do a complete build out of the Swedish-designed Sirius, one of the top competition gliders. I'll show you how to fit out it's all moulded kevlar Disser wing with a super tight top drive flaperon system using the latest digital servos. You will learn how to make a light weight spring return drive set up for the elevator, and how to install asymmetric rudder blades in a moulded fuselage. Rotary Drive systems are popular for driving flaperons and I teach some tips on how to make this complicated but aerodynamically clean system work perfectly.
The best part of the install is the tutorial on how to use the new 2.4 ghz radio systems in all carbon fuselages. 2.4 systems offer many advantages over FM systems but you need to know the right installation and testing techniques to make them work in HLG's, and I show you teach you all of the proper proceedures. I use the new Spektrum 6255 superlight 2.4 receiver with extended antennas designed for all carbon fuses in the demo.
Another trend is to use lithium cells for power as digital servos and 2.4 receivers need lots of clean power to operate. I cover all of the basics on what cells to use, how to regulate the voltage properly, and safe charging procedures.
We all have older gliders that still fly well but are in need of some updating. I take an older XP-4 (the same one I built in the HLG Building Clinic) and update it with new fins, updated digital servos, 2.4 radio, and modified boom that will make it launch and handle much better. After all of the lab work, it's out to the flying field for some 2.4 range check procedures, fail-safe programming, and I talk about flying rudderless planes and the lessons I have learned to fly them effectively. I even do some thermaling with the Sirius and you get to hear what I am doing as I fly.
As with my other building clinics, you get detailed instruction on high quality video that makes learning about the latest techniques really easy. Once you see me do things the right way, it is easy for you duplicate what I do. Links on where to buy the gear I use are noted on screen. With our 30 day money back guarantee, you can invest in this terrific program risk-free. If you don't learn a ton of valuable tips and techniques, I'll refund your purchase price, no questions asked, how easy is that?
