HL Building Clinic
The first in our new Model Building DVD Series, handlaunch glider expert Paul Naton takes you through every step of building and preparing 2 of the best DHLG kits on the market - the XP-4 and the Raptr. You will learn all of the basic skills and techniques it takes to complete one of these composite gliders and most any HLG kits available. This is the most extensive sailplane building video available.
You will learn all of the assembly steps in great detail from joining the wing halves with epoxy, microballoons and fiberglass to doing a perfect radio installation. You will learn basic soldering skills as well as how to build your own custom receiver battery packs. Paul will also show you how to build a competition-ready linkage system which will be tight and slop free for maximizing launch height.
All of the techniques shown on this DVD can be applied to any sailplane building project and are not limited to just HLG type gliders.
This 2 DVD disk set will help you build a strong, straight and reliable HLG that will give you many hours of thermaling enjoyment. Combine this video with the HLG Pro Clinic, and you have a complete instructional series that will shave months (no, years) off of your HLG learning curve. Be sure to read the reviews and watch the online preview trailer.
