Handlaunch gliders are extremely popular and flying these high-tech light weight gliders will quickly build your soaring and thermaling skills. A few years ago the tip launch or discus style launching method revolutionized the entire HLG experience allowing anyone to launch really high with minimal effort.
Paul wanted every R/C soaring pilot to learn how to launch and fly these amazing planes and Paul produced the Handlaunch Pro Clinic to make the learning process easy and fast.
While tip launching is not very hard to learn, you will need some help initially and you must learn some basic techniques otherwise you WILL destroy that nice new glider you just spent some big bucks on.
The Handlaunch Pro Clinic is a 4 hour intensive training DVD which will show you step-by-step how to prepare, equip, and launch your first HLG. The detailed tutorials will guarantee a successful first flight and eliminate costly mistakes that beginner's all make.
