The most comprehensive tuning program available ! Paul Naton's Handlaunch Building Clinic - Radio Carbon Art

Learning to correctly set up both your radio program and sailplane can be challenging and frustrating. There is a lot of misinformation out there about sailplane tuning and not many pilots really understand what's going on with their planes.

Our new DVD Performance Tuning taught by expert Paul Naton will help you learn how to get your plane to fly at peak performance with easy to follow step-by-step procedures. We guarantee this new educational program will shave months off of your learning curve! The tips and techniques you will learn can be applied to any type of model slope or thermal, HLG or foamy.

About 80% of all tuning and radio set ups happen before the first flight and Paul will teach you how to build straight and rig your plane properly including tricks for precise servo and pushrod installations. Paul will also walk you through his techniques for setting up the center of gravity, wing and elevator decalage, and radio set ups for basic thru 6 servo gliders.

You will also learn how to optimize your V-tail sailplane by setting proper decalge, rudder differential, and other parameters.

Flight demonstrations showing center of gravity tests, trimming, the "dive" test, flap settings, and adverse yaw correction conclude the 2 hour program.

The Performance Tuning DVD will help anyone get the most from their equipment and will take the fun level of their soaring experience to new levels.
