Dylan has been working on a fully customized collapsible DLG product including custom wing design & molds, custom miniaturized radio transmitter and receiver, and a charging system never before seen on the DLG market.

Modifying a number of off-the-shelf DLGs, and traveling with them in carryon bags as far as Costa Rica, Dylan has settled on a product specification and has since been working on wing design, electronics design, and the product travel packaging.

Dylan has learned from experiences such as destroying a glider on the beach in Costa Rica due to a dead battery, having his glider assembly tape confiscated by a security officer before an international flight due to the tape’s ability to tie peoples hands together, and numerous interactions with curious TSA officers. His product will address these potential issues and more.

Dylan has kept this project on the back burner and is planning to introduce the TDLG (travel discus launch glider, or “travel glider” for short) in 2020.
