Longshot DLG

8 May 2005

Some photos of my Longshot. This is a nice quality, reasonably priced DLG glider from Horejsi Models. A number are being built by UK pilots.

To keep weight to a minimum I made lightening holes in the tail and used rod and wire keepers for the aileron linkages. All in all very pleased with both the build and the flying performance. Just keep it light (mine weighed 10.5 oz.), and follow the suggested closed loop geometry to the letter.
