@Mr. Gandalf - I’m sure someone will chime in with some suggestions! The i6 is quite popular. The iA6 Rx that comes with it is quite small already. Why not strip the case and solder to the pins? I have an i6s Rx with the ia6b Rx which is bigger than the iA6, but when the housing is stripped off it is also quite small, with the benefit the pins are horizontal.
 
Ok, I get it. However, I have a very limited hobby budget and this is my only receiver, but when I do get around to building a dlg I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind. Again thank you for the help!(y)

Keep an eye out on our DLG threads and we will continue to post our how-to's for what we are building and experimenting with!

@bracesport It could probably handle up to 250g. The heaviest DLG I made was 210g and it did get my arm a little sore since I was not used to swinging such a heavy ship. If I was going to make a slope plane it would be built heavy and not need a discus launch. Would not want to over G the wing in strong winds.

@flyboa - 👍 nice flying, you really get the most out of a one dollar wing!

I glued my dihedral just now so any time soon I will give the 1.2m DLG a whirl!

It looks like your launch is reasonably gentle? I plan to throw the TT version (1.0m wing) first to see what happens!
