How to find the thermals
 
Showing my thermal flying technique.
Flying my Arthobby Silent 3,4m in low and weak but flyable thermals on a calm summer day, late in the afternoon.
Boring to watch, but pretty challenging to keep the glider in the air.
I use Spektrum DX9, Ar8000 rx and Tm1000 telemetri + vario gauge on this glider..... or you can just use the Lemon LM0052 U as the Rx together with Spektrum G2 transmitters

Good video for a novice like me, I'll have to watch your control setup video again as I've forgot what the thermal mode is blush Should I be be able to do this with HK P2000 or is it heavier than your Arthobby ?

HI

A P2000 is not the best thermal glider, but on a good day it will thermal.

The thermal record for the P2000 in my club is 35 min. 40 sec. so give it a go

Just keep the speed down to just over the stall speed,

Good luck

Last winter Peter from my RC club found this untouched Vintage Multiplex Cortina kit in Norway, and I had the maiden maiden flight with it yesterday,

No problem with the flying, but it was a shitty landing

Anyone seen this YouTube channel from a guy called John Woodfield. >>

He appears to specialise in own design slop soarers, very therapeutic to watch.>>

Not sure how many of you may have seen this one before,

But with all this bad weather we have been having thought this might cheer a few of you up.

Just watch the grass it is hardly moving Yet the model is flying on a breeze.

Here is wishing for warmer calmer weather.

Steve.

Yep, John has been making these videos for a while now and is a prolific builder, primarily of vintage looking 2ch slope gliders, although he does fly PSS and other sport models also.

So with Coronavirus travel restrictions of 5 miles still in place in Wales, I'm unable to drive to my local slopes for some gliding therapy, but has this stopped me from flying?

Here's my latest video with a group of us flying at The Bwlch in S. Wales. One of the guys flying his latest model, a Valenta SB9 hits a huge patch of sink. Watch what happens next.

Hi all. There wasn't enough wind to warrant a trip to the slope last weekend so a friend invited me to go along and fly at his club site, Eglwysilan MFC near Pontypridd for a thermal soaring session, and what a good day we had. I managed to maiden my Streamline 350 also laugh
