Finished a 1.5m DLG today. AUW 182g. Cord increased to 180mm at root. Nose cone is foam covered with 5 minute epoxy with a couple drops of acrylic black paint.

@flyboa - I have to keep my eye on you otherwise I miss out on or your learning! - FYI I bought some CF rods - 7mmx750mm 7g so I can contemplate a new design with sub 200 weight - my current ship is 260 AUW and looking at the weather I am finally hoping to fly it Thursday!

@bracesport another nice morning here. I did get an 8 min flight when the thermals started up. My neighbor has requested I not fly over her backyard anymore. Will try flying in the nearby corral instead.

@flyboa - goodness that is impressive - and the launch video is effortless - I have still to have a windless day for launching my DLG - wing peg is in and she is ready to go, but the weather here is not so stable (small island in the Pacific) - do you have a launch mode with some up and right?

In the meantime, I built a bigger sailplane based on the Pheonix 1.5m and managed a short maiden. Seems it will fly well, so now to try it on a slope, and if that goes well I will throw up my precious DLG (I really should build another backup)!
