|Thread: Lidl XL Glider|
Now with EDF
Can be removed again in 5 sec..
Yesterday I was flying it for the first time in low wind speed and no ballast in low slope lift and thermals, and found that the CG at 55 mm was perfect.
On the pitcheron model this give good elevator control and the dive test was as I like a glider to be.
In high wind and with 100 gram ballast I flew it with CG at 50 mm and it was also ok, so I think I am pretty near now.
Flying the LIDL XL glider plane from my local slope in north Denmark.
1,5 hours in the air today together with a Hammer
Towing the Lidl one
The wing spar is 85 mm from the leading edge
The Lidl xl at the DS dune
At the end of the Carbon tube there is a hole on the underside of the wing, and the 4 mm carbonrod is 10 mm longer than the tube, so I just put on a rubber packing (o ring in Danish) and gave it a drop og cyano glue
The CG and weight will come after some more trim flying, the CG was too much forward yesterday due to the 150 gram extra ballast.
The wind should be good later today.
How I made it

Thomas from my club also made one yesterday, and the weather is great with 20 knots wind right on the Cow hill.
So maiden with 2 Lidl gliders at 1700.
My XL have room for 100 gram extra ballast.
Video will come.
My Lidl XL (with wingerons) is ready for maiden, and I hope it will be tomorrow

I send my DX 9 for repair from Denmark to Germany and after 3 weeks I had it back again.
|Thread: Horizon Hobbies|
My DX 9 had lost the sound, so I sent it for repair in Germany at the new Spektrum service center.
They had changed the motherboard and put new Liion battery in it, copied all models on a new memory card and added them again. And updated audio and software.
