Thumbs up Alula Like , 25$ YG ,EPP,DLG from South Korea

I've been flying the 25$ YG ,EPP,DLG from South Korea, it's a good flying glider, I've seen alot of Alula's fly and this is close but not near the Quality of the Alula, Had some real long lifting flights out of it at think she should slope real well, anyway their on E-Bay, shipping is real slow(5-weeks for me) shipping, alot of Carbon and to linkage is Okay, I put more flat CF in the wings as I fling kinda hard,

DLG is kinda new ( few years) and not something all are interested in, mostly because they haven't tried it, I was blown away at how much fun you can have with one two-cell lasting all day, Now that we have tried DLG theres no going back, I often only take one DLG to fly instead of 4 planes and a back-pack full of support ( Lipos, tools, TX's, etc,,,,,,,,,,), I may go beach slope'in today,, More New Stuff!!!! This Tread has a mess-o-views but only Don replied,, so I know there's interest and some old-farts like us think ""I can fling with-out blow'in out my Back,Hip Shoulder, knee,elbow,,,,"" fear not as Dan (my local Bub) and I are both 62 and grunt alot just bending over to pick-up a plane,, Fling'in is strait armed with minimal effort,, Don't be afraid ( I was) we have also found a little exercise helps you stay fit,, we both think were getting more than good flights as a benefit

Steve I have been one of the lurkers sounds, and looks like you have been having a blast with this plane. Tobydog has bought a plane from the same site not a DLG, but a different electric plane. He was happy with the plane and the EBAY seller.

Don here is the link. I see a DLG in my future like to give it a try.

Welcome to WattFlyer!,Add some flat Carbon fiber ( 1/8"size) 8-10" of it close to the tail and thin CA , thats a weaker point , it will crack there after a few hard nose in's ( ) , The CG is 25 MM from leading edge, real close , theres some flex in the ailerons, I used document type iron on as its real lite to stiff'in them up, If you'd like I mail you some precut to fit if you need it, keep the throws High when windy and slope'in, I just slope her now as thats what she's best at bubsteve
