I am currently in the process of building a Momentum DLG. It has an interesting pin connector between the wing and fuselage to simplify the the attachment of the wing. Quite a challenge to solder the pins as the three servo wires are quite small!

Wound up ordering new pins for the wing connector. I will practice soldering the pins using the old connector before I work on the newly purchased connector. It turns out that the space to do this work is quite small. This glider was advertised at 80% complete! I have already spent over 40 hours on it and I'm still not done! I'll be afraid to fly it.

With the summer here at the field I suspect I will be able to do better in my attempts at launching DLGs. Here are some notes that I made (I'm left handed)
