Full Description
Success in flat field thermal soaring lies not just about having an expensive competition model such as Neil’s state-of-art Maxa, since there are many low-cost and self-built models that will perform beautifully in the right conditions. It is in the ability to closely observe the signs in nature - from wind shifts and temperature changes to the behaviour of insects and birds - that show where thermal lift is, then knowing how to harness it’s energy to make your model climb. With Neil’s help you’ll learn about:

Control settings for the different phases of a soaring flight
The use of ballast to improve performance
Understanding the nature of thermal lift
Physical features on the ground that are likely to trigger thermal lift
Sensing the right moment to hand-launch
Setting up and using bungees and winches to launch the model higher
Detecting when the model is in rising air, and how to stay in it
The increasing popularity of electric powered ‘self-launch’ models

Whether you have ambitions to enter the competitive world of F3J championships, or are simply looking for a low-cost, relaxing and rewarding way of flying RC models, this video is packed with the information, tips and expertise that will unlock the beauty of flat field thermal soaring.
