#Boom F3K DLG

We're delighted to announce the arrival of the new #Boom DLG. This beautifully manufactured model looks set to rival the best quality DLGs we stock. With sharp colour schemes, coupled with a useful variety of strong or light layups using Rohacell or XPS foam cores, we expect any buyer will be as impressed as we are by this carefully crafted and implemented design. The flying qualities of this model are reputed to be excellent, with a good launch, a flat glide, and great handling. The great construction ensures it will withstand the rough and tumble of F3K competitive flying, and it should last many seasons of sport use.

The beautifully molded and nicely streamlined all carbon fuselage features a hatch that gives access to a spacious equipment area, allowing four servos to be installed in the pod comparatively easily. The tailplane is mounted on a lovely small pylon, and the fin is molded to accept the tail boom for easy construction. The fin and tailplane (horizontal stabiliser) are expertly molded from a lightweight Carboline type of spread carbon, with extra carbon inserts to strengthen the trailing edge and the tips of the surfaces.

The wing is molded to a very high standard with a complex layup schedule to ensure strength in the areas required, but weight is minimised where it can be, without compromising strength. The quality of the surface finish is excellent, and the colour scheme is eye catching, with white edged splinter designs on the upper surface wing tips, and very visible colour/white/colour underside stripes.

The wing is offered in four different skin and core combinations. The carbon skin can be supplied using heavier checkerboard type carbon fabric ("Strong" layup), or with lightweight Carboline type biaxial spread carbon ("Light" layup). The wing is of solid molded construction, meaning that there is foam filling the gap between the top and bottom wing skins. This foam can be either Rohacell for a more resilient and perhaps very slightly lighter wing. Alternatively the foam can be XPS, which is slightly less strong but very much less expensive. The Strong and Light layups are priced similarly, but the Rohacell core adds additional cost, to cover the greater material cost. See the layup, core, and colour options currently available below the price.

The very complete accessory bag contains the tailplane mounting pylon, an offset throwing blade, aileron, rudder and elevator horns, two M4 and two M3 countersink screws for securing the wing and tail respectively. Also included are beautiful lightweight wire tail pushrods running in very lightweight tubes, and aileron pushrods and tube outers for good aileron control.

Please see this RCGroups thread and this Russian forum (use Google Translate) for more info about this exceptional model.
