This is a DT Systems RDL-1209 Super Pro remote dummy launcher. This is a neat product. I really have been looking forward to this. I've started using it with my dogs and I am absolutely loving it. it is a remote controlled dummy launcher. It throws your dummies. Works off of a small transmitter. You can set up, up to 16 of these. Most people don't need that. I'm working with two right now, probably going to add a third one to my setup here shortly.
This is a stand for the handheld dummy launcher that DT Systems makes. If you are familiar with other dummy launchers out there, it's real similar technology as far as a handheld dummy launcher. What they've done is they've built a stand that incorporates the use of that dummy launcher.
It uses .22 caliber loads to fire your dummy. Put your load it, close it up, take your dummy, attach it on the end. To cock it you pull back the release, and then when you are ready to fire the arm from the electronics is going to trip the switch that is going to fire the dummy launcher. There is no load in here right now, but here you go.
Works really well. It is probably my favorite of the launchers that we have right now, mainly because it's very light. The whole thing weighs about seven pounds. You can carry it into the field. You can set it up at any angle that you want. Doing a double or a triple with two or three units is really simple. Move it around. It works really well.
Pretty simple design as far as the concept. All the parts are easily replaceable. And it folds down into a very small package. I am just absolutely in love with it. It does a great job for what you are doing. The only real limitation to it is that it only fires dummies. Unlike something like a Winger, it's not going to throw a duck or a dead fowl trainer. It's strictly going to throw dummies.
But for most of us that's really all we need. For just basic work for your average duck dog it's a great tool. And being able to get those dummies out in front of the dog, being able to work by yourself, and being able to get those long distance throws to teach that dog to stretch out, it's a great tool for that. We've been real pleased with them so far. I think it's going to just change the way a lot of folks train. Just a really neat device. I'm real happy with the design. DT did a really nice job on this. We're very pleased with the production of it.
We're going to break this sucker down. Take our dummy off. Get your electronics off. That's how small it will break down. It's going to fit into a bag really easy. It's just a really small package. Setup is real simple. Kick out the legs, undo the arm, raise it up, pick your angle, tighten it back down. Real simple to use.
