Handlaunch gliders are extremely popular and flying these high-tech light weight planes will quickly build your soaring and thermaling skills. The tip launch or discus style launching method started in 2001 revolutionized the sport, allowing anyone to launch really high with minimal physical effort.

The Handlaunch Pro Clinic is a four hour training DVD set which teaches you all of the skills needed to start flying these fascinating gliders. The detailed tutorials will guarantee a successful first flight and eliminate the costly mistakes that beginner's make.

I want every R/C soaring pilot to learn how to launch and fly these amazing planes and I produced the Handlaunch Pro Clinic to make the learning process easy and fast.

Disk 1 covers the equipment required, basic tuning, radio set ups, and other needed preflight information. You must learn the ground basics first and this detailed tutorial will help you get any HLG model ready for the stresses that the discus launch puts on your plane.

While discus launching is not very hard to learn, you will need some help initially. You go out to the flying field on Disk 2 for a clinic on the basic spinning and rotation technique required to get high launches. Discus launching is like a smooth golf swing, it's the style and not the power that results in a good high throw. I show you the right way to spin, and common mistakes beginners make. Launch elevator presets, CGs, and other tuning tips are also demonstrated on camera.

Also included on Disk 2 is a series of interviews with top HLG pilots who talk about their models and the equipment they use. You will also see how the highest launching pilots on the contest circuit throw in super slow motion revealing aspects of each pilots unique throwing technique.

You will also see me catching thermals and I describe everything I am doing while I fly. You will watch this part over and over! I recommend HLG flying to anyone in soaring, no matter what skill level. The planes are cheap, durable, transportable, and you can fly them almost anywhere.

If you are just getting started in HLG or want to learn more about HLG flying in general, this DVD is a must-have. It will save you months of trial and error learning and will surely save you many broken planes and parts. Make sure you watch the online trailer as it will give you a tiny but enticing taste of the DVD’s content.
