I’ve been building and preparing Handlaunch gliders for a long time and now you can learn my pro building techniques. In my 4 hour Handlaunch Building Clinic, you will watch me build not one, but two composite HLG kits, start to finish, every step, from glassing the wing halves, to doing a light weight wiring harness. I show you 2 builds because both planes have unique construction needs, and they cover the most widely used assembly techniques. Now this is NOT a scratch building DVD, I don’t do any foam wing cutting or vacuum bagging. What you will see is what most people build, a composite kit with the basic parts prefinished, the wings, tails and fuselage are already done, though not assembled. If you are building any XP4 and 5 series, Taboo, Predator, Blaster, Legend, Arrow 2, Topsky, Gambler, DL 50, Vandel, or any other kit, then this is the video for you.
