Hi Willy,
We are flying thermal at the Tseung Kwan O Industrial area and have great fun. Early morning session is great!
Instead of DLG which demands so much from your body, you may try elecric powered thermal glider with small investment first, or bungee launching the traditional HLG or thermal glider. Ken Ma and I have the hi start equipment.
Of course winch launching is much challenging, you will need the equipment and setting up at the field every time.

Hi Yeung,

Thanks for your quick reply. I currently only have one small plans (1.1m - my friends said is similar to the plans call “swing”) which I only use to start learn to fly as a slope glider. They mention I could use as thermal guilder. Do I need to modify to play as thermal guilder? Could I come over and learn with you guys?

Hi Willy,
Top pilot George used the Swing to win the thermal duration contest. It is a good thermal sailplane. The issue is how to launch it high to give you more flying time. So I believe bungee launching (a surgical tubing like a large rubber band) is a good start.
Come to Tseung Kwan O if it is hot and the wind is slow. Just drop a message here to see if we can meet.
