For those glider pilots looking to learn more advanced thermaling techniques, the High Performance Thermal Soaring training DVD is the program to get. Taught by myself and two-time FAI F3J world soaring champion David Hobby, this DVD shows you techniques for optimizing thermal flight performance, tuning and air reading. You might think of this DVD as the sequel to the Secrets of Thermals Soaring, with more of an emphasis on advanced flying techniques and actual time in the air looking for lift.
Along with detailed technical tutorials, Dave thermal soars extensively on camera with a 3.5 meter F3J sailplane and describes his every move, teaching you his techniques for competition level thermal flying. Watching a pilot of his skills flying close up in a variety of thermal situations is unique and highly educational. David also shares some of his great plane setup and air-calling techniques he has used to win world championships.
Soaring subjects covered are CG adjustment methods, trimming with flight modes, rudder use theory, ballast and wing loading strategies, bank angles, and trimming for minimum sink and maximum lift over drag ratios.
As a DVD extra, I teach a tutorial describing my thermal plane set-up. Combine all of these subjects with an hour of David Hobby's teaching, and you have a DVD that contains a great wealth of useful information. Make sure you watch the online video preview trailer to get a good taste of the DVD's high quality. Even though many advanced subjects are covered in this 2 hour seminar, this DVD is the perfect companion to the Secrets of Thermal Soaring DVD and is suitable for R/C thermal pilots of all skill levels.
As a special offer, you can get this DVD along with it's companion program the Secrets of Thermal Soaring for only $44.95. Click here to order the discounted 2 DVD thermal soaring set.
