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.
20 -25 knots wind
100 gram extra ballast, CG at 50mm.

1,5 hours in the air today together with a Hammer
Short flight

Brilliant solution! Wing twist is the way to go!

Please advise - how far back from the LE is your wing pivot?


The wing spar is 85 mm from the leading edge

I think we are all predisposed to a bargain, a challenge and something we can personalise.

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 smiley

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.

I send my DX 9 for repair from Denmark to Germany and after 3 weeks I had it back again.

My DX 9 had lost the sound, so I sent it for repair in Germany at the new Spektrum service center.
3 weeks later I had it again.

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.
Price: 0 Euro
