I spent a long weekend in San Diego with ace instructor Mike Smith who did such an great job on the Master Class 1 project. We had talked in the past about the skills he saw lacking in pilots (even experienced ones) who he saw fly at his local field and at national meets. We both decided to make this Master Class about skill building. This DVD is not for the raw beginner, but those of all other skill levels will surely benefit from this unique program.


Mike is a great teacher because he makes you question and rethink your current flying and set up habits. Through live flying demos combined with information graphics, you will see how small changes in technique and set up can gain you big benefits in handling smoothness and glide ratio in changing lift conditions.  


We shot hours of thermal flights over the course of 3 days with Mike wired up to the camera talking about every move he made in the air and why he did it. What's really cool about this program is that we had a HD video camera on his new F3J Aspire which was recording the flights synced up to the ground camera. We also put a yaw indicator on the nose of the plane so you can see how adverse yaw effects flight in real time.


Mike demonstrates how to set up your rudder mixing and differentials for coordinated turns, and you see those effects on the yaw angle of the glider as he changes the mixes. The onboard camera and Mike's zen-like commentary while thermaling really makes this training DVD unique.


Other subjects covered are thermaling technique, air reading while in flight, energy management, minimizing drag, optimizing camber settings and how to adjust the glider to changing lift and wind conditions. Mike also spends a lot of time thermaling on camera in weak and strong conditions and comments on every move he makes and why he makes them. Watching a pro catch thermals down low is very cool and educational.


The Soaring Master Class 3 DVD is one of my very best instructional DVDs, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I already did many tweeks to my unlimited glider radio set up to improve rudder response. If I learned a bunch of great tips and insights, just imagine what you might learn!
