Lift Ticket to Norway
Lift Ticket to Norway - Shipping on April 22, 2010....
Lift Ticket to Norway is a documentary film about a 3 week R/C gliding road trip that Bob & Darcy Bingham, Espen Torp and Dave Reese made from the South of Norway, near the City of Stavanger, to the unspoiled and magical islands of the Lofoten Archipelago in the North. Norway's native son and expert R/C pilot, Espen Torp is our guide as we explore some of Norway's majestic scenery and it's most stunning slopes.
This movie is as much about the scenic beauty that Norway has to offer as it is about flying R/C Gliders at some truly spectacular and unique locations. This was a slope soaring expedition and adventure of a lifetime. Release is set for April 22, 2010.

Soaring Master Class
Instructor Mike Smith has been flying gliders for over 25 years and has won numerous National Championships, the Soaring Masters, the huge contest at Visalia, and is a 3-time U.S. F3B team member. Besides being one of the best pilots in North America, Mike is a skilled and confident teacher, easily explaining complex subjects in an easy to understand manner.
I spent 3 days filming Mike in San Diego as he covered his techniques for plane set up, launching, and optimizing performance. You will learn an amazing amount of basic and advanced soaring skills from someone who really knows what he's talking about.
Along with the lectures and flight demos, your learning will be helped along with high quality information graphics which illustrate the subjects Mike's covering.
The launching tutorials alone are worth the price of the DVD, but Mike covers so much more in great detail that you will improve your skill set immediately. Especially cool is Mike's demonstration of high wind flying where he talks you through his techniques for finding and staying in lift in really breezy conditions.
The content of the DVD is aimed pilots of all skill levels, beginner to advanced, and the skills taught can be applied to all types of gliders, not just the higher performance ones. Combine this DVD with High Performance Thermal Soaring, and you get a potent pair of classes which will surely cut years off of your learning curve.

High Performance Thermal Soaring
Along with detailed technical tutorials, you will learn by watching one of the world's most talented pilots, 2 time world F3J thermal soaring champion David Hobby. David thermals on camera and describes his every move, teaching you his techniques for successful performance thermal soaring.
David also teaches you some great plane setup and air-calling techniques. I learned a whole bunch of cutting edge techniques from Dave and I know you will be blown away with the information he shares with you.
You might think of this DVD as the sequel to the Secrets of Thermals Soaring DVD, with more of an emphasis on advanced flying techniques. I cover CG methods, trimming with flight modes, rudder theory, ballast strategies, bank angles, and minimum sink and lift over drag ratio.

    Lift Ticket -Directors Cut
    This new 2006 DVD version has a new name, it’s called "Lift Ticket, The Director’s Cut" (LTDC).
    Rather than convert the original movie straight to DVD, the producer has re-edited Lift Ticket to make it even better. During the process we shortened some of the scenes, removed others completely, added a bunch of new footage and also added some new music. Perhaps the biggest changes have taken place with regards to the Dynamic Soaring footage. Like before, we start out at world famous Parker Mountain and interview dynamic soaring pioneer, Joe Wurts. After Joe shares his story about the first time he encountered DS we travel to NorCal and visit some DS slopes that were discovered after the Roe video made DS more popular.
    The final chapter in the movie is about chasing the DS speed record. This segment documents in chronological order many of the unofficial world record DS flights and attempts that occurred between May of 2000 (156mph) and October 2005 (301 mph).
