Steve Says:

I have been really looking forward to announcing this product. The RDL was the most impressive product I saw at SHOT Show 2013. It fills a gigantic hole in the retriever training world. Being able to train by yourself is a big deal. While we have wingers and other launcher units on the market, this is the first one that fixes the main issues that we have with other launchers:

  • It's the first one that has all the parts made by one company -- The launcher and the electronics are both made by the same folks.
  • It's the most compact and easy to operate launcher out there -- Unlike a winger, anyone can carry it and set it up without help. This launcher does not require the upper body strength that it takes to load a winger.
  • It's the first unit that allows you to start with one at $399 and then add more launchers as you need them.


  • Transcript from Steve's Video:

    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.

    Works perfect out of the box. I bought 2. They took my training ability up 3 notches. The dog is now focusing on the sky, not the barrel of my gun. Hands free makes it much easier to keep him steady.

    Works as advertised. Easy to set up and operate. Ty, our dog, really enjoys working with it due to the gun sound. The only problem I have found is that when the dummy gets moisture in the tube and on the launch shaft, the pressure seal is compromised and the distance of the launch can be greatly reduced. When working in snow or wet conditions, I wipe the tube and shaft after each launch and it works reasonably well.

    Black Labrador Retriever. Hunts.
    I train alone and wish I would have bought this product way earlier. Very easy to set up and breaks down to a compact size. I have cycled about 50 shots through it with no misfires or issues. Only minor thing that worries me is if the angle is set for a high mark then the unit with flip onto it's back from the recoil. Not a big deal unless the remote unit gets damaged.

    It is great so far. I have fired 90 rounds. Only problems have been misfires due to the blanks from time to time. It has never failed to do it's part. It has never tipped over. The beeper is helpful to get the pups attention. If I had a concern it would be that it is lightweight. I hope it holds up over time. I believe it will. I would buy it again for sure.

    Loads and Batteries NOT included.

    The DT Systems Super Pro Remote Dummy Launcher is designed for the retriever trainer that is looking for an easy to use remote dummy launcher that will allow you to train alone but still train with long marked retrieves. The RDL remote dummy launcher is the first product at a price point that allows an intro user to start small and expand his remote system up to any size that he needs at an affordable price. A complete system including electronics starts at $399 and you can add up to 15 additional launchers that will work from the same transmitter for $330 each.

    What is the RDL?

    The RDL Remote Dummy Launcher combines the D.T. Systems Super Pro Dummy Hand Held Launcher with an aluminum external frame, letting you launch dummies from a remote location from up to 1,200 yards away. The frame allows you to cock the unit and set the dummy launcher at any angle from 0 to 75 degrees. You then turn on the DT Systems remote receiver. When you are ready to fire the dummy, you press the button on the handheld transmitter and the arm on the receiver trips the cocking mechanism, firing the dummy. The included remote release system can control up to 16 DT RDL add-on launchers (sold separately) with one hand held transmitter to aid in setting up blind retrieves, multiple retrieves, or setting a course for hunt tests or field trials.

    Who is it built for?

    The RDL is designed for retriever owners, for folks that want a compact, easy to carry unit, and for folks that are looking for a system that is easy to set up.

    Super portable, super easy to load:

    One of the biggest complaints we see from our customers is that they have a hard time setting up the wingers that we sell. The RDL fixes this issue. It is easy to carry and even easier to load. The RDL Launcher can be cocked with one finger -- it doesn't require the upper body strength to set up like a winger. The lightweight aluminum frame and compact folding design aid in portability for ease of use in the field. This launcher can fit in the smallest of cars -- no truck, van, or SUV required!

    Convenient shell extraction system:

    The RDL uses the same DT Systems .22 caliber crimped blank loads as the Super-Pro handheld launchers. After you have fired the unit, open up the launcher and the extraction system lifts the empty shell up for you to grab.

    Loads and batteries:

    We recommend the DT Systems Green Light Loads (not included) for this launcher. Requires two 9-volt batteries (not included) for operation.

    Features:

  • One-handed push-button remote dummy launching
  • Portable folding design can fit in the smallest cars
  • Lightweight -- weighs less than 7 lbs.
  • No tools required for set up
  • No stakes required to hold it in place
  • 1200 yard signal reception range
  • Easily adjust launch angle from 0-75 degrees
  • Locator / beeper to aid in finding a unit in the field or to help as a training aid
  • Dual-Port Exhaust for increased range and reduced recoil
  • Solid aluminum and stainless steel construction
  • Self contained firing pin mechanism for long life
  • Red blinking on/off LED indicator light on remote unit
  • Control up to 16 launchers (sold separately) with one transmitter
  • Cross-compatibile with D.T. Systems Remote Bird Launchers
  • Uses existing patented D.T. Systems Super Pro Dummy Launcher base unit
  • Safe-T-Ratchet cocking mechanism to prevent misfires while cocking
  • Transmitter and receiver unit use replaceable 9v batteries
  • Audible beeper on launcher to aid in locating / marking unit
  • Convenient shell loading and extraction system
  • One year manufacturer warranty

    Collapsed system dimensions without dummy:

    Length: 18 1/2"
    Width: 4 3/4"
    Height: 9 1/2"

    NOTE: Red power loads can be used with the Super-Pro Dummy Launcher. However, DT Systems recommends the green or yellow loads for this launcher as the red loads can shorten the life of the launcher dummies.

    The DT Feather-Weight Launcher Dummy is wrapped in 1000 denier nylon Cordura fabric. Specially coated, the fabric repels water, resists mold growth, gives longer life and has excellent scent-holding qualities.

    NOTE: When training on water, make sure the launch tube in each dummy is dry before re-launching. If water is in the launch tube when the dummy is placed on the launcher, it can enter the firing port, drowning the load and causing a misfire. We recommend having multiple dummies available so the wet ones can dry between launches.

    For Your Safety:

  • Use only .22 caliber crimped blank loads. Not for use with loads with wadded ends.
  • Each time before firing the launcher, make sure bore is free from obstruction. Clean after firing.
  • WEAR PROPER HEARING PROTECTION. Repeated exposure to gunfire or dummy launcher firing can damage hearing.
  • WEAR SHOOTING GLASSES TO PROTECT EYES.
  • Always keep your dummy launcher pointed in a safe direction.
  • FOR OUTDOOR USE ONLY!
