A beautiful German Reiher - WS125" - in the air. You will also see 2 landings: the first without visibility, the second ends in a crash. Both times, just one control horn broke, no persons were harmed.

Aerial video taken with the FlyCamOne V2 from an Easyglider on a sunny winter day. During flight, look out for the Cularis passing several times...

Here's my take on the MasterCard Priceless commercial with a model airplane theme:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xS65wW6Zn4

GentleLady bungee lauched, no motor. Old school cept for the flycam1 onboard.

Getting the plane out of the tree was not easy. I got it down with no damage...and only minor cuts and scrapes to myself. Could have been worse, almost fell out.

Front View Video taken with the FlyCamOne2 on a Cularis. You will see take off, landing, and a video of another glider flying and landing in front of the Cularis, as well as a Zagi that "landed" in a tree.

Video taken on both, the Telemaster tow plane and the ASH-26 4m glider with a FlyCamOne2. Besides take off and landing you will see the glider doing loops and rolls.

Hey guys, since you are posting glider videos, I know you like gliders. Any of you coming to the Eastern Soaring League hand launched/discus launched event this weekend? It is going to be a great time.

If you are an expert, come test yourself against the best of the best. If you are a sportsman, there will be a good field of guys at your level.

And if you are totally new to this contest stuff, we have Novice. This is for guys have never entered a DLG contest before. We have four in Novice now so come on down.

If you are an ESL member, you register for the contest here:

I would like to make the aerotow, but I can't this year. My scale glider is very annoyed with me.

LISF used to do a couple of Aerotows each year but the guys who ran it have moved on to other activities or other clubs. So we don't run Aerotows anymore.

I have a 3.4M Ventus 2C that is specifically set up for Aerotow. It calls to me in the night asking when it will be allowed to come out and play again.

I have winch launched it but I don't like that with this plane. Of about 6 winch launches i have done with this plane, two went badly. I may take out the nose release and put in a motor. If I do that I will fashion a tow release further back from the nose so I can still tow it.

Let's return this thread back to the topic. I just wanted to give you glider guys a chance to come join our fun with the DLGs.

Ed
