Dream-Flight Libelle

The Dream-flight Libelle is a breakthrough in discus launched gliders. Few modelling experiences can be as fulfilling as catching a thermal from a model launched by hand, with no other energy source involved. Until now, this experience has been out of reach to non-expert modellers. The Libelle changes this, it can be assembled, kitted-out, and trimmed for flight by pilots of any experience level, and for a smaller budget. Apart from being extremely quick and easy to assemble, the Libelle (which...

Elf Mini DLG

The Vladimir's Models Elf is a 1m lightweight mosquito class mini discus launched glider (DLG) that weighs only 95g ready to fly. Being so light no effort or rotation of the body is needed to throw it, and even an unfit and arthritic person like myself can launch it to 25m very easily (and with no aches the next day). After a brief dusk trimming session I caught a thermal and specced out on the very first launch on the first daytime flight - the feeling of accomplishment is really brilliant! Th...

Blaster 2 DLG F3K

The Blaster 2/2 is a high tech F3K R/C hand launched glider utilising airfoils designed specially for DLGs by Mark Drela. To help with storage and transportation this updated Blaster 2/2 has a wing that splits into two parts – this is cleverly implemented and only adds 6g to the model's weight. The break is asymmetrical, and the wing that is used for launching is fully bolted to the fuselage, so the wing join only has to take the forces on the outside wing. This facility also makes the Bla...
