KST X08 V3 HV Servo - 8mm 8g 2.8Kg.cm

Great servo. very light. Wide voltage range makes it an excellent servo to run of 1 or 2 cel lipo directly.

Review by: David Thorpe

Yes it's expensive and of course it's not pre-cut so you create your own shapes but you do have time to reposition it as the grab, unlike other trims I have used, isn't instantaneous. Try repositioning carefully cut out So....trim. the film delaminates leaving very difficult to remove patches of colour behind.
I much prefer this product

30mm HyperSpinner for 3mm shafts
Smartly crafted
7 Jan 2017
Review by: Ed in AZ

I couldn't find a suitable 30mm spinner for a Pulsar 2m Pro in the USA. Then I checked the HF site. Important to me, this spinner uses set (grub) screws-not a collet, to retain the yoke on the motor shaft. I have had great trouble with collet based yoke/spinners holding tight over time. And this spinner is designed such the prop' hinge pins are captured by the nose cone once it is screwed to the yoke. Clever and lighter than machine screws with nuts. The machining of the yoke is nicely executed as well. No burrs. I recommend this spinner!

Functions perfectly, used with KST DS225 servos, no nasty control horns sticking out into the airflow. good value for money. Planning is required when installing though, take your time and think things through because once the pushrod is glued in place some head scratching will be required to alter a stuffed installation.

Review by: Nigel Taylor

I purchased this last week, it arrived in 2 days and is a brilliant storage and travel bag for my 3.5m E soaring gliders(I can get 2 in it. Whilst not cheap you get what you pay for, the quality is excellent with plenty of storage for tails, stabs, wing joiners and a small bag of allen keys and spare bolts, wing joining tape etc. I'm going to do a slight mod to add a second fuse tube and put straps to allow me to carry it on my back. Should have bought one years ago. Thanks Hyperflight for an excellent speedy service and for supplying quality items

Review by: Terry Kovack

What can I say that has not been said before. This kit is beautiful. I consider myself a rookie on building and flying a glider of this quality. This kit went together with no issues. Hitec HS-45HB servos used on all surfaces. 500mAh 1S lipo with HK voltage booster used for power. The snow is flying (Southern Ontario Canada) so no maiden for a while. Will write a review of first flight when it happens.4 months???.
This has been a great experience and would like to thank Neil and Hyperflight. Have a good winter everyone.

Review by: john c ruthven

recently purchased this model and have commenced building the wing. Once assembled, the structure is surprisingly stiff even before covering. I did find one or two slight problems- the instruction are in German with no sensible translation, even from google. The outer wing ribs are numbered out of sequence, in addition I cannot see the need for such a heavy gauge wire wing joiner. A cf rod would be more sensible. The tailplane and fin would benefit from some lightening holes but I'll check the balance before final assembly. The wing trailing edge is assembled rather differently, I'll be interested to see how the covering turns out.

22SWG 0.71mm Piano Wire

2 Dec 2016
Review by: Tristan gale

Arrived fast and well packaged. One thing I did find though (not related to this wire in particular, just in general) is that 0.71mm is slightly too thick to fit through the micro servo arms on the wltoys f929 brick. The way to get it through is to heat up the wire with a lighter until it glows slightly then quickly push it through.

Review by: Jeroen Kole

Bought them as an optino for flaperon topdrive install for a nxt. Although the horns are nice and the fit is tight, they are far to big for a dlg. Might use them on a f5j build.
Personally I like the plastic horns that are available as extra better.

MKS DS75K - 9mm 7.5g 2.4Kg.cm
29 Nov 2016
Review by: Jeroen Kole

Used in a Stream NXT on flaperon and tails. Excellent on 1 cell. To fit in the NXT wing they have to go 5 mm forward in the milled servo pocket. Totally slop free top drive install. In the fuse it is an easy fit.
Expensive, but well worth the money in my opinion.
Ordered an extra set of plastic horns. Thats the only minus; for the price they should include more horn options.

Today I got to try out the wing bags I got for the purpose of protecting the wings of my Hyper while leaving it rigged in the sun. Looks like they will do the job nicely indeed. The centre section covers are fairly snug, and I don't know why they don't include a cover for the fin/rudder, but overall, a worthwhile buy.

Blaster 2 DLG F3K
27 Nov 2016
Review by: Brian Rivas

I have been a hardcore Blaster flier for at least seven years, and currently fly a Blaster 2 with the smaller tailplane from the series 3, and more recently have been enjoying the 3.5. Yes, of course the 3.5 is superior, a slippery and very satisfying machine that has a fabulous performance and stunning build quality. But does that mean the venerable 2 is no longer worthy of attention? It is all too easy to think that the new invariably blows the old into the weeds. That is human nature - but it is not always, or even often, the case. The Blaster 2 still gives a great performance and represents terrific value for money. Mine has had countless hundreds of launches and still looks and flies like new. If you want the best Blaster, then the 3.5 is the obvious choice, but the 2 remains a lovely glider - yes, even after all these years. And Neil's renowned service is not something new: it was there from the beginning.

AndREaS - F3-RES
Andreas F3 kit build
27 Nov 2016
Review by: Mark Hamilton

The kit is well thought out, using several different types of wood and various thicknesses to best reduce weight and have the necessary strength. Quite complex compared to other laser cut kits, impressive.

Given the different materials, the parts come free and are all nicely cut. A challenging thing to do with so much variation.

Hardware is high quality also. The joiner and tubes fit perfectly, pushrods and horns are well suited.

The kit goes together quickly and the instructions can be translated using free apps. Some apps do not have good aircraft vocabulary but the instructions use many pictures.

The design is modern, light, and graceful. It will be well suited for those light days when no one else can fly.

A lot of work went into this kit. Kudos to the design and production crew.

Kappa 35 F5J
update
10 Nov 2016
Review by: Philip Stevenson

I am still enjoying the Kappa.

Its done a lot of flying since July 2015. Its had a couple of incidents, caught a tree and landed nose on plus another time got blown into a fence, but damage has been minimal, cosmetic wing repairs only. Fuselage and tail are still like new. Tough model despite the low weight.

Last month it won the biggest F5J event in Australia in a mixture of conditions against a lot of good flyers with models from Ultimas, Maxas, Storks, Explorers, Avas, Pulsars etc including some ultra light specials.

Its still 1300g and I never add ballast. I also do not use camber changing, I think the airfoil works best in neutral with plenty of speed range with simple elevator trim adjustments. CoG is at way back almost 50% of root chord, seems to work because of the swept back tips.

Great model

Very nice device, small and neatly built.
When using the keyboard, I found that switching between F5J and ALES configuration rather difficult and criptic. I whish the switch back & forth would be easier.
Also, changing the launch height altitude for ALES should be improved such that it could be configured (100, 150, 200m) and verified without having to attach a keyboard.

General Comment - Outstanding Service!
30 Oct 2016
Review by: Philip Montague

I have placed many orders on Hyperflight from complete F3J/f5J models to small items over the past 4 or 5 years.

Every time the orders have always been processed the same or occasionally the next day if super busy. The items have always been exactly as described on the Website and received super well packed. I believe Neil personally checks every order that goes-out - they've certainly never made a mistake.

Neil through my occasional contact has also shown to be a thoroughly honest person to deal with.

In addition the website works exactly as it should and the range of items is huge. It's also full of useful information on the models and accessories sold so is a ready reference.

I should perhaps add, given the forgoing, that I have no commercial interest in the company, but I do believe that excellent service should be communicated to others.

Review by: Mark

The elf arrived quickly in perfect condition thanks to very good packing. I was blown away by the build quality. My only gripe is that the pod could be just a little bigger to make the placement of servos and battery a bit easier (just 1 mm wider and longer would do that). You could probably save a couple of grams to allow a longer nose by drilling the solid epoxy balloon fill in the end of the carbon tube. But in the end it all fitted together nicely and it float really well. My final weight was 101 g with the 2s 175 mAH lipo sold here, sd100 servos and ar6100e reciever

With past motor mounts that you have to glue in, a hard landing can dislodge them. With this motor mount the probability of that happening is nil. You can land a little harder in ALES and F5J to get those better landing scores.

Integrated Drive System for MKS DS6100 & HV6100 (pair)
IDS linkage system for MKS DS6100
22 Oct 2016
Review by: Greg

The Servorahmen IDS system has become somewhat of a standard for internal linkages for flaps and ailerons on molded sailplanes. They work great, and remain relatively solid (slop free) for at least a few years, they should remain so for MANY years. The plastic or nylon parts have some flashing from the molding process that will need to be removed. They are quite tight, almost to the point of binding, until you take some sandpaper or a very thin file and sand the gaps between the hinges. The hinge pins are steel, 1.5mm for the control horn side, and 1mm dia. for the servo side. I used 1.5 and 1mm drill bits in a pin vise, and pushed them through many times without turning the bit to open up the holes. I did this only on the inside pieces, as I wanted the outside pieces to hold the pins firmly with no chance of the pins creeping sideways. This really allowed for freedom of movement of the entire assembly.
Overall - very pleased, but wish they were a bit less expensive.

Dream-Flight Weasel-Trek
Most Excellent!
14 Oct 2016
Review by: Bertie

After many years' absence from the slopes I turned to Hyperflight for guidance and to the Weasel Trek (WT) as the ‘best bet’ for my return: I'm glad I did. Hyperflight's service was swift and impeccable and Neil's patient and professional guidance on NIMH batteries was invaluable - many thanks. To summarise my experience with the WT - it assembled quickly and easily, the mouldings and accessories were faultless, it copes splendidly in light and strong winds and can fly both gracefully and with amazing agility. Excellent value! For more detail, read on.

Following the clear WT manual exactly in all but the control throws (more on this later) I assembled the wee beastie in under an hour. The recommended Dream Flight servos and battery fit perfectly. The Spektrum AR400 receiver (which has top connectors) fits with room to spare. With the C of G adjusted to the marks under the wing, and the elevons centred, the WT flew perfectly from the first chuck. I then flew it comfortably, without ballast, in winds from 6kt to 20kt, gaining height easily in the lulls and penetrating well at 20kt. Improvising a 47gram ballast weight (from ten pennies wrapped in sufficient masking tape for a tight push-fit into the ballast bay), I tried this in winds over 15kt: it improved penetration noticeably and did not dislodge during aerobatics. The manual suggests control throw values to suit both the fearless and the timid. I set-up 3 Control Rates beginning with slightly less deflection than the recommended Low Rate. By trial and error I then set 2 further (more thrilling) rates - the higher of which applies slightly less deflection than the manual's recommended High Rate. I also applied 15% exponential to all axes. In practice my low rate setting is restful and appropriately gentle when curious Red Kites fly alongside but aerobatics are slow; I use my mid-rates for basic aerobatics whilst my little-used high rates remind me of a bluebottle twizzling against a window. Using my mid-rates, tight loops and fast aileron rolls are easy but airspeed diminishes very quickly. Bigger, graceful loops and slow axial rolls look nicer and maintain airspeed better. Spins are straightforward and stable, with a brisk rotation rate; recovery is just a matter of centring the stick. I even tried DLGing my WT on a calm day - it was not a great success (I should have eaten a bigger breakfast).

Blaster 3 DLG
Great DLG
11 Oct 2016
Review by: Anonymous

Great DLG, the main feature of this glider that attracted me was the access to the servos and the battery (canopy design). The build quality is excellent, its a beautiful glider and the service from hyperflight is always fantastic. The model builds very easily and makes for an incredibly floaty glider which weight can easily be added to. Having all four servos up front helps in keeping the weight down, I currently have four Ripmax SD100 servos running off a 350mah 2cell which lasts for at least two hours of flight time. Would recommend this model for a strong intermediate to advance RC pilot. Easy flying but although very strong for a full force launch it might not fare too well after a few heavy landings.

These are great servo's with good centering and excellent speed. As a previous reviewer has said, they do buzz but this doesn't effect performance. The only reason I have them 4 instead of 5 stars is because I managed to break a gear with a medium bad landing (half flap out but not a hard touch down). Gears are readily available and reasonably priced so its not the end of the world but I will now carry a spare at competitions. I have had many servos from another brand which looks similar and never managed to break a gear, so now I know the difference is real but it wouldn't put me off buying them again, very good value.

MKS Short Metal Servo Output Arms (2)
4 Oct 2016
Review by: Roger Sanders

These servo arms are much stronger than the stock plastic ones. They are a bit heavier, but they are small enough that the weight is not likely to be an issue.

The machine work is generally quite good. In particular, the splines fit perfectly and without any slop.

But I was very surprised and disappointed to find that the hole for the mounting screw was too small. The screw would not go through the hole. I had to drill the hole larger in order to insert the screw through the hole where I could engage the output shaft.

I was disappointed in the excessive width of the servo arm. This was not designed well. The arm could be considerably narrower and still be absurdly strong. I cut mine narrower to reduce weight in my very light, small glider.

I was disappointed that there was not at least one additional clevis mounting hole available for adjustablity. These servo arms are longer than the stock plastic arms that come with the MKS DS65K servo upon which I mounted this arm. So if you want the same throw as the stock factory arm, you will have to drill a new hole. It seems sensible that the metal arm should have a hole in the stock location as well as further out.

The clevis hole is too small to fit the pin on any of the clevises I tried. You will have to drill it larger to use it. The hole is also too small for any ball link.

The arm is quite thick. This is no problem if you are using a metal clevis, but it is too thick to use one of the minature, plastic clevises with it.

For all these reasons, I do not think this servo arm is very well designed. It simply will not work as delivered. There was poor attention to detail. Customers should not have to re-work the part in order to get it to mount on the servo, minimize weight, enlarge clevis mounting holes, and add additional holes. However, it certainly will produce a very rigid and strong connection to the servo if you are willing to modify it.

Review by: Roger Sanders

This is a work of art. It looks beautiful as well as being beautifully made. It has no gear lash and produces very accurate positioning. It is extremely light even though it has a metal housing. It has more than adequate power for the small aircraft in which it will be used.

My only complaint is that it is not very fast. If you want quick control response on a fast aircraft, you may want to find a faster servo. Also, the DS65K is very expensive.

In many cases, I think the KST X08 servo may be a better choice. The X08 is slightly thinner and its motion is obviously faster. It costs about half the price of the DS65K.

Blistered DLG Servo Cover (2)
4 Oct 2016
Review by: Roger Sanders

These servo covers are very thin and very light. They can easily be cut with scissors or on a paper cutting board (recommended for accuracy). They are well-made.

However, I found the blister to be too small. I could not get sufficient clearance under the blister for even the smallest servo arm on a micro-sized servo. So I could not use them.

In fairness, I will point out that the wings on my glider are very thin, so the servo arm on even the smallest, 8mm thick servo, extended well past the surface of the wing. If your glider has a thicker wing, the servo arm will not stick out as far and in that case, this servo cover should work fine. But in most cases, I think it would be advisable to get a servo cover that has a larger blister.

White Cone for 38mm Spinner

Review by: Roger Sanders

The spinner is nice and light. However, the cut-away area for the blade holders was inaccurate and carelessly done. The edges were ragged and the prop holder screws did not align with their holes in the spinner. I had to do a lot of cutting and modifying to get the spinner mounted. The result was unsatisfactory because the openings for the blade holders were much larger than they needed to be, which increases drag. In summary, I was surprised at the poor detail work on this spinner.

Review by: john champ

After providing the details of the motor, prop size & model, I was told this spinner was suitable. Not so. My prop would not open fully or close flat on the fuselage.Also the centerpiece would not fit the shaft . A refund was not offered. Very disappointed. No stars.

HyperFlight Comment
1. The customer selected the spinner size himself.
2. His prop didn't open fully. We suggested he trimmed the plasic cone to allow this. This is normal practise and does not weaken the assembly, as all the strength is in the aluminium yoke.
3. He didn't want to do this. We concluded one of our emails with "you're welcome to return should you prefer."

EMAX CF2822 Outrunner Brushless Motor
27 Sep 2016
Review by: Roger Sanders

This is an amazingly powerful and well-built motor for its super low price. By any measure, this is a great deal!

On a 3-cell lipo and a 15 amp ESC, it turns a CAM 10x5 folding prop at 8,000 RPM and produces 25 ounces of thrust. But note that I live at an elevation of 9,000 feet, which reduces the air density so that the RPM is higher than it would be at sea level. In any case, the motor launches my 21 oz glider vertically at around 2,000 feet per minute.

The combined weight of the motor, ESC, folding prop, and a 450 mAH battery weigh right around 100 grams, so the power to weight ratio is truly amazing.

My only complaint is that the motor is designed to only be mounted from the rear by a special flange. This makes it impractical to mount the motor to a front firewall, which requires that the motor be mounted on its front surface. Since most gliders use a front firewall, this makes it awkward to mount the motor.

To deal with this mounting problem, I modified the motor so that I could mount it by its front.

Although the motor is not designed to be mounted on its front face, it is possible to modify it to do so. The shaft needs to be reversed in the rotor so that the long side sticks out of the other end of the rotor.

This can be done by first removing the "C" clip that holds the shaft into the stator. The rotor can then be removed from the stator assembly.

The shaft is held in in the rotor by a set screw. After removing the set screw, the shaft can be pressed out of the rotor using a drill press.

The shaft can be inserted from the opposite end of the rotor and the set screw can be securely tightened to hold it in place. The rotor and its shaft can then be inserted into the stator bearings and the shaft will then extend through the mounting flange such that you can fit a prop on the other side of the flange.

The flange can be turned around 180 degrees and mounted to a front firewall. The motor can be inserted through the flange from the rear and the shaft will extend out the front of the model where you can mount a prop. The result works superbly.

A fine product. Works as claimed. Very light. Well designed and built.

My only complaint is that its hinge pins are do not screw into place. They rely on the spinner edge to keep them from falling out. When the spinner is not attached, the pins fall out, which makes working with the propeller blades awkward. The pins are easily lost, and because they are unique, you will not be able to get them locally.

27 Sep 2016
Review by: Roger Sanders

This device does is poorly designed, poorly executed, and will not fit most small wing applications. I simply do not understand why a device designed for micro-sized servos was made so large. It will not fit into the servo pocket in the small wings for which the servo would be used. It needs to be designed to be compact around the servo so that it will fit into the space available.

Its output shaft support does not run in a ball bearing. It is just an aluminum shaft running in a plastic bushing. There is no excuse for such a poor bearing design.

The servo mounting system is clever, but very confusing. I am a mechanical engineer, but I had to study the device for awhile before I figured out how to mount the servo. There should be instructions with the device, but none were supplied.

This is an unsatisfactory and generally useless device. I wasted my money. I do not recommend it.

X-RES Flight Review
21 Sep 2016
Review by: Greg McGill

For myself, even without a lot of time yet on the airplane, I find it inspires confidence. I set it up initially with +/-100% throw on both rudder and elevator, and quickly reduced that to +/-70% on rudder, and +/-60% on elevator. The result is an airplane with control authority, that feels precise at all times. I do not hesitate to roll over into a circle at eye level to work the small stuff down low. Even with only three sessions on it, I've climbed out several times from maybe 20 feet.

The response by another who flew it at last weekend's Hiss and Boink contest says it all: he would not give up the airplane to anyone else, and between heats, he spent his time hand-launching it, over and over. I suspect he flew the airplane over two hours without pause. His official comment: "At last, an RES airplane that actually responds to the rudder!"

X-RES
X RES Kit and Build Review
21 Sep 2016
Review by: Greg McGill

Here in Albuquerque, we are looking at as many of the current crop of 2-meter RES gliders coming out of Germany as we can manage. We have done the PuRES and the Slite. The latest one completed is the X-res.

The kit arrived in good order from hyperflight in the UK, no damage whatsoever. The plans are good, and the pictures in the instructions (despite being in German, and us Americans being totally deficient in foreign languages) make for straight-forward construction. Parts are CNC-routed from good balsa and excellent light plywood. This kit differs from the others we have on hand, in that there is no structural carbon: fuselage and wing are entirely wood. The design features an all-flying horizontal tail with a pylon made of flat carbon sheet, also CNC-routed.

The wing construction is a wood I-beam with spruce spars on a routed shear web, that is sandwiched in a sheeted D-tube leading edge. I've built this way on other airplanes in the past, and the result is typically rugged while light. The X-res fulfills the promise. Construction of the wing is non-traditional for me, in that the structure is pulled up off the building board before the D-tube is fully sheeted. Even so, the wing came out very straight in both examples we built. Another feature is a false leading edge that is fabricated from scrap 2mm wood taken from the sheet that carries the ribs. Nice conservation of material. There are angle templates for the root ribs. Finally, the kit includes templates for the wing leading edge, to assure proper profile. There are soft, light plywood and made shaping easy. We are confident we obtained the correct leading edge profile.

The fuselage uses thin plywood doublers on balsa sheet, with a hard balsa longeron at each corner. All the bulkheads (plywood from nose to wing trailing edge, balsa sandwiches aft from there) all fit very nicely. Again, easy to build straight and true.

The tail surfaces are built-up from interlocking pieces of balsa into a pleasing shape. While just flat plates, they appear to be able to resist (because of grain direction) warping. They assembled easily on a flat board without need to pin down on a plan.

We encountered two issues with the design. First is that the thin plywood doublers on the fuselage do not allow for the longerons, which have to be laid down over the 1mm step that results. Our solution was to feather the plywood, making a ramp. On other kits, similar doublers are cut to provide balsa-to-balsa contact between longerons and sheet sides. We still obtained straight fuselages that have no gaps. Second was an absence of any material to make the wing locating peg. The center rib has a 5mm hole for a rod almost 5cm long, to engage a 5mm hole in a fuselage bulkhead. I found a 5mm thick-wall carbon tube at the hobby store that fit exactly. Neither kit of our two samples had any rod material.

We built both ours with Hitec HS-65 servos for rudder-elevator. We chose HS-65s because they (1) fit; and (2) we had them on hand. You can get by with smaller, cheaper servos. We used an old, discontinued counterpart to Dymond D47s for the spoilers, again because they fit and were already paid for. Any small servo should do the job. We just wrapped the spoiler servos in tape, and glued them directly to the underside of the wing sheeting. There are holes in the ribs to allow passage of the servo wires.

Final weights are between 390 and 420 grams - very nice. We haven't flown ours beyond a few hand tosses of one, but the promise is there. We are waiting on weather, now.

If I get a chance to build another, I will most likely truncate the fuselage at the tail by about two inches, in the hope of reducing the need for nose weight.

We think this is a good kit, with excellent materials and a high probability of being built straight, which means it will also fly right. Dealing with Hyperflight has been pleasant as well. The fuselage doubler situation and the missing locating rod make this a 4-star rating.

Frame for MKS DS6125 Mini (pair)
3 Sep 2016
Review by: Gordon

These are excellent CNC cut frames and the MKS 6125 mini servos are a perfect fit. The predrilled holes did not line up exactly but this is not a problem as larger 2mm holes need to be drilled as pilot holes for the 3mm self tapping screws provided with the servo. Highly recommended for a slop free servo installation.

Excellent servo with good centering - highly recommended

Review by: Tim B

This is an excellent aircraft. The construction is beautiful throughout. I have the White/Red full-house glider variant, which I have converted to electric. Visibility at height and distance is excellent. Converting from glider to electric has cost a few grams, so my AUW is about 1.8Kg. I used a direct drive brushless setup on a 10x6 the climb is near vertical at about 9.5m/s.

Kappa 35 F5J
29 Aug 2016
Review by: Anonymous

First I'd like to warn you that the fuselage will crack if you land as heavily as those stronger gliders like Xplorers. The damage was easily repaired and the plane didn't get much extra weight.

I didn't have glider competition experience and I went to national contest after 3 hours of test flights with Kappa. In the middle of the day I won 1 round where only 2 of 11 glider flew the whole 10 minutes. When the wind speed raised a bit I lost a little bit confidence because my plane doesn't have ballast and weights 1420 g. My CoG was quite in a middle 90 mm. I've pulled it to 93 mm and it still isn't tail heavy when flying in strong thermal. Does anyone have CoG more back?

I decided to make tail links with simple l-bend (rudder) and z-bend (elevator). I takes some manouvers to assemble that on field but I'm already used to it.

I've all servos DS6100 but my opinion is that flaps needs something stronger when you can't have that bearing of "servo rahmen" in limited space. I think KST DS135 will survive better. The moment arm of that flap mechanism is demanding for the servo forces.

Last sunday I had good change to thermal in low altitude while the lift was relatively strong, windy and narrow. With active use of rudder Kappa was climbing nicely. I used flat wing without positive flaps. There was enough power in the ailerons even when there is now mixing with the flaps.

I'm totally happy to fly with Kappa35 and waiting to test how some ballast would affect on performance.

I have previously flown the Elf, Vagabond, and the Alula and having thoroughly enjoyed the alula's portability I required NO motivation to buy this. I maidened it today at Butser hill and found it the perfect all-rounder. It is much more stable and much better at penetrating. It thermalled superbly and was able to handle a good variety of wind envelopes. My only issue is mastering launching it successfully without it dipping down - something to trim. But easy build, and great service as always from the Hyperflight site and Neil. Thanks.

Review by: Ian

Read the instructions through a couple of times before starting and assembly was very straightforward. Everything fits together well and I experienced no major problems. Followed the instruction images for the radio/servo installation and dry fit everything first. Minimal nose weight needed to achieve correct CG.

Purchased this as I wanted a step up in performance from my Elf and was not disappointed. The Blaster is very easy and forgiving to fly and even with my sloppy launches I'm managing to get decent flight times.

Very happy with my Blaster 3 and the excellent service from Hyperflight.

Very pleased with the service. I was concerned that they had to cut the tail-boom to .88m but this proofed to be no problem as they included the cut piece. The cut piece was extra length and with a little effort was able to inside sleeve 1/4" each side of the cut with the extra length of boom. A little CA and the original cutoff end was back on.

Elf Mini DLG
Beautiful little model
22 Aug 2016
Review by: Ian Sant

This will be more a review of the build as the weather has been uniformly wet for almost every day since I put it together. the model is beautifully built and all who've seen it remark on how nice it looks. I had a few problems fitting everything in but after a few days of muttering in my shed, got it all together. I used a Hitec Minima E rx and it just fits under the wing. It runs nicely off the 2S 175 Lipo which took a little work to shoehorn in under the nosecone. I ended up shortening the connector leads so I could get them to lie under the servos. The servos were glued in using Goop (son in law brings it back from the US) and I got the pushrods to fit by shortening the elevator servo arm (I found the details on the forum). My tentative few flights between dampness showed that the Elf was a good flyer with no vices. I just need to practise the launching technique more!

I bought this battery for the Elf DLG and it is just about perfect. A bit of a squeeze but the battery fitted into the nose cone without removing the balance plug after I shortened the leads to the main connector so it could lie under the servos. I charge it on the 150mAh setting as none of my balance chargers have a 175 setting.

Carboline SC39/2/45 Spread Carbon Fabric +/- 45° 39g/m²
New favorite material to make ultralight wings
20 Aug 2016
Review by: Rafael Jiménez

This and other carboline products permit the construction of ultralight glider wings and is becoming the favorite material in the construction of F5J and other competition gliders. Produced pieces, specially modern, thin glider wings, are very light but also stiff and very resistant to torsion forces. That is why I used this material to make the wings of my last F5J competition glider. It is easy to cut, handle and lay. The only negative point, in my case, is that even a full size sheet of carboline was not large enough to make an entire 4m glider wing, but I presume the sheet dimensions depend on the production process itself. Price is also a little bit high, but the quality/price ratio is quite good. Excellent product!!

This is a great little product! Only tried it a few times but the GPS and altimeter instead of ”just” altimeter fits my needs perfect. After your flying session searching for thermals you can not only see how much lift (or sink) you got but also where you were when it happened! Ideal in trying to learn more about the geographic aspect of the magic thermals. Before I thought it would be really nice to have this kind of information, now I will not fly without it!

Review by: Paul Hampshire

Bought the Weasel Trek because of its ability to be broken down into a few components and left in its box for easy light transport in my backpack. Together with my TX in a hard case I can get to all those difficult and challenging flying site that I would not normally fly at. I took my Weasel Trek to Wales on my hols. Flew it on the beach and on the sand dunes and then up on Pen-Y-Fan (886m high) and then off to Rhossili. The model is fabulous. Goes together in minutes and you are ready to fly in a jiffy. I flew mine in 5 mph winds and also in 20mph winds. It floats along in light lift but up on Rhossili with the stronger winds it penetrated well (without any ballast) and proved itself to be a superb all rounder. I purchased the stock servo's and battery from the here and as usual the service from the Hyperflight guys was 1st rate.
I am a big fan of this little model and It will open up a lot more flying sites to me in the future.
If you are Interested then I have some video of my Weasel Trek flying in Wales for you to watch on my blog: http://slopesoaringsussex.blogspot.co.uk/ or my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOI88Pb9F9sJAvKBbKzSKXw

Review by: Ian

As I hadn't flown any RC for many years let alone a DLG glider I called Hyperflight for some advice. Neil was extremely helpful over the phone and I decided to go ahead with the Elf which arrived a couple of days later.The model was packed to a very high standard and arrived in perfect condition.

Read the clear instructions through carefully a couple of times to make sure I understood everything but most of the work is already done for you and assembly is straightforward. Everything is of very high quality, especially the wings which are almost like works of art.

C of G was set per the instructions, first test glide was surprisingly long and flat, only a small amount of rudder trim needed. Tried a few gentle launches at first and was surprised by the height achieved. The Elf is very easy and forgiving to fly but responds well to control inputs.

To sum up the service from Hyperflight is first rate as is the quality of the products they sell. Highly recommended !

Sapphire 2m
31 Jul 2016
Review by: Phil Stevenson

A follow up on my earlier review when I first got the model. I am still impressed with this little glider, It is amazingly light and performs a lot light a bigger model, until it gets far enough up or away to be too hard to see. I was impressed enough with the build to also recently buy the bigger Geronimo.

I now have two different Sapphire fuselages for two different purposes, using the one wing and tail.

The lighter carbon fuse set up with a very light motor, using 3s450 cells and weighing only 460g, Its a delight to fly for fun, and for informal HL competition.

The second fuse is the heavier glass version which is set up for our AUS Limited Energy even. This is a 5min event with all motor time deducted from the score. So it needs a fast climbing glider with heaps of power. I have a longer outrunner with 3s850 HV battery, running at about 70amps. Only half the power of some competitors with old F5B gear, but the model weighs only 650g so it still goes up very quickly. The 5min task can be done with as little as 2 secs motor.

The light structure has no problem with the rapid climb, I did have to change the wing servos for some stronger ones, but my first batch were very light and cheap to suit the ultra light set up.

There are a few other Sapphires owners on our glider circuit and all the owners are very impressed with this little model.

Geronimo 2.5m F5J
31 Jul 2016
Review by: Phil Stevenson

I have had the Geronimo for a month or so. I bought it after being very impressed with my Sapphire. The Geronimo is the same style and manufacture in a larger size. Same high quality, beautiful fuselage molding, nice light boom, and flying surfaces are vac bagged glass skins on fine grain white foam. Not molded quality, the LE and spar skin reinforcements can be felt, but not molded model price either. Very light.

My initial plan was to extend the model to over 3m. I built an extra centre wing panel and larger tail surfaces, as well as moving the tail surfaces as far aft on the boom as possible, with a slightly larger motor this brought the weight up from 860g to 1.2kg. I flew the model this way several times, trying different tail combinations with the new and kit surfaces, but was not really happy. So I reassembled it with the original kit wing and tail panels and flew it again. I was so impressed that the model will now remain in this configuration. I have now put in a smaller motor and weight is down to the advertised number.

Very impressive model. It flies almost as well as my larger molded Kappa 35, at half the price.

After lots of researching, it was pretty clear that the guys at Hyperflight were the people to speak to.....
...which I did! In particular, Paul was incredibly helpful, going well beyond the extra mile. What a great glider - there's plenty of advice within the instructions and numerous stuff online. Not an ARTF model, the main components are manufactured to a very high standard, it will require some careful consideration and application. My advice is to take time to speak to Hyperflight - they will advise on all the additional hardware.
The Blaster is a great performer - get it close to weight/cg/control throws - and fine tune it from there to ensure maximum fun!
I strongly recommend listening to these guys - they walk the walk!

I was searching for a suitable push rod system for use on a carbon tube tailboom when I came across this PTFE tubing which when combined with a 1.5mm carbon rod is the most friction free "snake" system I have ever fitted. As the site details suggest the outter tube can be secured to of the fuzelage using low- viscocity cyano which I ran (poured)down the etched outter wall of the tube and wherel adhered to the walls of the carbon tail boom where it touched. This system is far superior to any commercial product where is is suitable to use a carbon rod as the push rod

Blaster 2e
Pink is great for visibility
21 Jul 2016
Review by: David

I've had my Blaster for a couple of years and thought I had reviewed it! Obviously not so here goes. This model is gorgeous even in pink. It flies superbly and climbs so well on the cheap motor set up although a 3S 450 performs far better than the 2S i started out with. It handles beautifully and will all too easily hook thermals and become a dot needing determined full spoilerons and dive to escape ~ pink's a good visible colour! I don't disassemble it as it goes in the boot relatively easily hence it's the model of choice in less windy conditions. Build quality is excellent and hinging is neat.

Review by: Anonymous

If you are not really computer savvy you will be wondering why this unit doesn't have a set of simple step by step instructions. I should point out that there is no shortage of instructions but this doesn't mean they are easy to understand. Someone should write a do this, now do this and then do this procedure - then perhaps I would have known to download the setup application right from the start.

It was a struggle (maybe it's just me) but eventually everything was up and running and, to be fair, it all works well. Without a laptop field adjustments are impossible which meant half an hour to the flying field then back home to make adjustments. Same thing next day and the day after. It would be good if the unit was supplied with a basic setup which could be refined but that was not the case.

The vario does work and it works well and no doubt will grow on me as I use it but I did have a lot of trouble setting it up. Great service from Hyperflight, as with everything else I've bought from them, and the price runs rings around everyone else.

Elf Mini DLG
Fantastic DLG
20 Jul 2016
Review by: Steve

What a fantastic little DLG glider. I ordered the Elf with two Ripmax SD100 servos and was amazed how fast I received them.
There is not much work to do on this model to get it ready, but I would advise just taking your time and being careful as it is just small and fiddly, especially if you have big awkward fingers like mine! The wing is absolutely beautifully made and all complete apart from intalling the throwing peg into the wing tip. I put a peg in each tip (2 are supplied) just keep the wings balanced. I did get a small amount of cyano which ran inside the tip of the wing but it hardly shows, so just be careful here.
The most difficult thing is making sure all the radio gear fits neatly in the nose area so that the nose cone can slip on properly. I fiddled with this for a little while to get it in neatly. I used a 120 mah Turnigy 2s lipo that has an Eflite ultra micro plug fitted as this battery is just thin enough to fit in and only has the one connector lead which balances and charges. The RX I used is a Lemon feather light receiver that is dsm2 compatible and fits in neatly.
The fuselage now comes with all the tiny pushrod guides and the tailplane mount already fitted, which is a couple of fiddly jobs less to do. For connecting up the pushrods I used a small about 5mm long piece of heatshrink to hold the z bend and carbon rod together which allows you to slide the two about until it is in the right position and then apply a drop of cyano to hold it. The small piece of heat shrink can then be cut away and more cyano added. After that the proper length of heatshrink can be fitted over the joint ( make sure this was slid along the rod before you do all this).
My model came out with the correct CofG and was very light.
This model is definitely for a zero wind or almost zero wind day as it is so light it floats and floats. It is lovely and responsive to the controls an reacts to every air movement. I have a Blaster 2 DLG as well but this glider is so relxing and rewarding as you just have to chuck it and fly it, with no wing camber settings to worry about. I did mix in a small (10%) mix of down elevator on the throttle stick just for launch which is then taken off at the top of the climb.
I thoroughly recommend this model to anyone who fancies having a go at this sort of flying. You dont have to have a fantastic lanching technique to get useful height, so you dont need to go running and spinning along to get it airborne, it is easier and seems better to just stand there and fling it not too hard from your side.
You wont find many shops these days with a fantastic service like Hyperflight, so go on, take the plunge and give it a go!

Kappa 20
19 Jul 2016
Review by: Ian

Received my Kappa 20 very promptly, and well packaged as one would expect from Hyperflight.
Assembly was pretty straightforward if a little fiddly. The quality, and fit of the various parts was excellent, with one minor exception; that being that the 2 bolt holes to fix the stab to its pylon were slightly offset each side of the center-line, so the stab is a few degrees off perpendicular to the boom. Unfortunately, I didn't notice this until I was admiring the completed model, and i'm sure it has no effect on the model's flight.
I also feel that a slight crank in the aileron pushrods would have been helpful to the assembly.
In flight it is fairly similar to my old Sprite it has replaced, fairly fast for a thermal glider, and requiring full concentration as its slim profile leaves it prone to disappear at height! It sniffs out lift very well, and circles tightly. An excellent model.

If you want lightweight and reliable control you need this along with SS wire or a thin carbon rod. For DLG, you can use it with thinner wire like 24, 25 or 26SWG but you have to stretch the tube for a tighter fit.

Review by: Ian Sant

I got the Weasel-Trek to replace an ancient and much battered Weasel-Evo. The new magnet construction system makes it a lot easier and faster to put together but, as on the Evo version, the CG position is critical. I balanced it as recommended, on the two marks under the centre section and it was as twitchy as hell! I was getting quite frustrated with bouncing it off the hillside and trying less and less control inputs until I added about 15g of lead in front of the battery. It then behaved as good as the Evo version. Funny in the at the Trek has the CG about 5mm in front of the recommended position whilst my Evo has it 5mm behind. Control throws are now as recommended on both versions and I can throw them around the slope with abandon!

Dream-Flight Weasel-Trek
Another Dreamflight Success
13 Jul 2016
Review by: Gordon Bayles

Having "built" and flown the other Dreamflight models the Weasel Trek is another very easy to build and enjoyable to fly model. My model balanced on the recommended CG marks without adding any ballast, the flying was very easy and smooth with loops and rolls no problem. The model flys quite fast downwind and when positioned into wind it will just hang in the sky on the prevailing wind. My only gripe is as mentioned by others I wish Dreamflight would include some more decorative decals just to brighten the sterile white foam. I used Solartrim sticky film to add a bit of colour and this also helps aid orientation. In a nutshell recommended.

Never had a flying wing before. Very easy to put together, used dream flights recommended servos and battery which no doubt helped. Maiden flight was uneventful set up on the high rates as per the manual, in fact (just my personal preference) I dialled in more elevator. I found I preferred a rearward CG. Next flight was literally a hoot, this thing will do ridiculous manoeuvres and its great fun to fly. I was curious to see if this was "For all levels of pilot" I have a friend who's interested in taking up flying, on low rates granted he crashed and burned a few times he can now do a few circuits on the local slope. Highly recommended.

Really worth the money (even though it is just a slab of foam). Fantasic low wind performance. Californian excellence for those lazy summer days. (And I suspect winter days with ballast).

Tip: You can use any aerosols to paint, just keep the nozzle about two feet away and do several light coats. This allows the solvent to evaporate before it hits the foam. Too close / heavy and it will melt, so less is more.

Cracking little kit

Review by: Brett

The Weasel goes together very quickly and easily indeed. Adding the recommended servos and NiMH battery, along with your own favourite 4ch rx, is straightforward. The magnetic latching arrangement on the airframe works a treat, simplifying assembly no end.

How does it fly? Pretty darn good straight out of the box. I needed to add around 3gms to bring the CG back to where I preferred it, but that took only a few seconds to organise. The Weasel is extremely manouverable, but will still hang in there on only a sniff of an updraft. Haven't tried ballasting it yet for windier days.

Overall I'm very pleased with this little flying wing, but wish there'd been a little more by way of decorative trim available - white foam isn't that visually appealing, is it?

Review by: Nigel Bennett

I can't comment on the flying abilities of this E/S because I decided not to buy it after inspecting the parts.

All the moulding were of a very high quality, the fuselage being excellent.

However the tail plane and rudder were not as well made as the wing, and I thought rather too flexible. The wing was 42 gms heavier than advertised.

Probably quite a good model for sport flying but not of the same quality of detail design or construction as say an Ava or Pulsar. But the price reflects that.

First class service as usual from Hyperflight, with no quibbling about me cancelling the order.

Dream-Flight Weasel-Trek
20 Jun 2016
Review by: John Bennett

The new Weasel Trek was definitely worth waiting for, although when you open the box it doesn’t seem much for your hundred quid. Having said that, the finish is superb, everything fits together perfectly and it’s all assembled (bar the electric bits) in about ten seconds.
When I ordered at the beginning of May, Hyperflight’s original estimated dispatch date was 10th May but that slipped to 31st. It arrived on 2nd June (Thursday) and by that time I’d ordered two Gening D90 digital metal geared servos (£7.50 each – how do they do that?), a Frsky 4 channel receiver and a four-square pack of AAA Eneloops. The servos didn’t quite fit the recesses but it’s an easy job to deepen them a bit and widen the grooves for the lugs. There’s plenty of room for the receiver and the rest of the installation is dead easy. Dreamflight supply some decals but it comes all white: the colour is added with parcel tape (left over from Zagis) and/or spray paint – Humbrol acrylic worked well, but do as they say and clean the surface well with meths first. The servos arrived on Saturday lunchtime, and it was all done by the afternoon. I used the control throws recommended in the instructions, with dual rates on the elevator and ailerons.
One minor problem I did find was that a couple of the magnets that hold things together fell off. I fixed them back on with epoxy rather than cyano, hoping that would give a better bond: so far, so good.
Installation complete, the test flight was on the Sunday, but the wind was light and swinging around easterly, which in this part of the world means a small slope at Rodborough Common, near Stroud. The c.g. was set on the two moulded-in markers, which needed about a 10 mm square of lead flashing beside the battery. It flew straight off the launch with just a touch of down trim, but not for long as the lift was not really up to it. I’ve flown it in much better conditions since then, and taken out some of the lead, and it’s now about neutral, which means it flies inverted with almost no down elevator. I never owned the previous version but I’ve flown other people’s, and the new one flies like any Weasel but better (have to say that). The roll rate is snappy and it will loop, bunt and all the other things you can do without a rudder.
If you like to experiment, I would recommend increasing the elevator throws from 10 mm (Dreamflight’s high setting) to about 25 mm, or the maximum the servos will allow. I now have that on a third rate switch position so it’s low, high and stupid. With that, it will stop in mid-air, or if applied slowly it will enter a deep stall and come down like a parachute. You can keep it straight with aileron, but it will spin if you let it. More experiments will no doubt follow. 40% exponential on elevator and ailerons seems to work with all the rates.
Conclusion: highly recommended, great fun but a bit pricey. We pay the same number of pounds as the Americans do dollars.

Ultima F5J
Ultimate eSoarer / F5J Model
2 Jun 2016
Review by: Barry Purslow

After several years of "building" and flying a series of large eGliders I thought that the pace of development was tapering off and that my Euphoria would keep me satisfied for some time. Imagine my surprise when, whilst perusing Neil's Hyperflight website, I stumbled across a new 4 metre eGlider claiming to fly at almost half the weight of said Euphoria!..... I had to have one.

Being of a deeply suspicious nature I was concerned that this new machine would be rather too delicate or would fly like a paper bag or both. First impressions were that it was incredibly light, so light that I was frequently caught out by a failure to realise how large the component parts were as I moved them around the workshop. This led to a number of contacts with solid workshop parts. However the all carbon skins are very hard and well supported by the underlying foam such that almost no damage was caused. The elevator and rudder are operated by long closed loop systems with the final few inches at the rear being piano wire pushrods. This system is rather fiddly to set up but, once sorted, works well.

The small diameter of the Ultima's nose makes it almost impossible to squeeze a direct drive motor in there. Since my competition days are in the dim and distant past I avoid gearbox motor drives as an unnecessary and expensive complication but I ended up fitting a Powerline Micro 1015. With a fairly modest 11"x6" prop. this produced 235 watts . If I achieved my target weight of 2lbs 12 oz (1240g) this would give 85 watts per pound (190 W/Kg), perfectly adequate for my purposes.

A brief alert from Neil indicated that this glider was likely to turn out nose heavy. A quick assembly of the bits still to be fitted showed that this was indeed the case. A quick calculation indicated that the removal of 30 mm from the nose should put matters right. Well, it didn't quite but, thanks to the long tail moment, half an ounce of lead in the tail brought the C.G. bang into the middle of the specified range.

Although there were no instructions whatsoever with the as bought bits Neil had produced some figures for control surface movements by now and I set the surface movements accordingly.

With a 1000 mAhr 3S Lipo the target weight of 2 lbs 12 oz was achieved and all that remained was to wait for a calm evening and fly it.

The calm evening eventually arrived and away it went, climbing straight ahead with almost no control inputs. Cutting the power showed the glider to be very docile, pleasantly responsive despite the low flying speed and no sign of any paper bag tendencies. It's one of those gliders that likes to turn and these first few flights were very impressive. Hopefully some experimenting with C.G. and surface movements will improve matters even further. Stalls were docile and the huge flaps made very effective airbrakes although it is clearly essential to retract them before the glider contacts terra firma.

Finally, the Ultima comes with two sets of wing joiners for the tip panels, one pair at 5 degrees and the other 7 degrees. Now, if your flying buddy comments that your latest pride and joy looks "a bit skew whiff" on it's first flight, take a tip from me and check that you are using a matching pair of joiners!

Blaster 2 21mm-8mm x 0.93m Carbon Tail Boom
Alternative use
1 Jun 2016
Review by: Gavin Davies

I purchased a full length boom in March to use as the main shaft in a carbon-fibre cane for me to use at my wedding, to accompany my top hat and tails.

The boom came securely packaged and arrived quickly. Regarding quality, I was amazed at how light and stiff it was, despite the incredibly thin wall section. I work professionally with CF as a laminator, albeit with much heavier grades, so believe me when I say this is excellent quality stuff here.

Regarding it's unusual use, I filled it with expanding polyurethane foam to create a stiff but light core to prevent buckling from lateral and 'squeezing' loads not normal encountered in gliders I imagine. I then fitted an 8mm brass ferule to the end, and added a large stainless steel knob on the top, a bit larger than a golf ball and a lot heavier.

On the wedding day the stick performed excellently, and looks great in the photos. It also proved very durable... during the speeches rather than tapping a glass, I simply thumped it (HARD) many times on the wooden floor in the rustic barn conversion hall where we were holding our wedding breakfast. The boom didn't bat an eyelid. Really impressed

As a practical cane, the boom provided enough strength to bear a considerable portion of my weight, hence it would serve well (perhaps with a lighter knob!) as a daily use item, where it's light weight would suit it to those who might struggle carting a thick wooden item or modern metal cane around.

All in all, an unusual use, but an excellent product!

About 2 years ago I bought a Maxa 4E from Hyperflight. It's taken me that long to get it finished - and I was very careful. I maidened it about 4 weeks ago and am entranced by it. As many say, Vladimir makes beautiful models and this is no exception. It flies perfectly using the recommended set-up. It can fly amazingly slowly with zero tendency to tip stall - it is a very forgiving plane to fly. It picks up even gentle thermals well. It's not cheap but it's a brilliant model, thanks!

Scorpion 2.3m Cross Tail (discontinued)
Scorpion 2.3m Cross Tail
25 May 2016
Review by: Roland Alder

One year ago, I ordered a Scorpion from Hyperflight. The shipping to Switzerland was fast and for reasonable cost. All parts were well packed, without any damage and of excellent appearance.
I realized a light setup with 610gr, based on a direct drive outrunner (42gr) and a 2s1200mAh battery. The climbing rate of approx 6m/s is fine for me while the drive certainly runs in a comfortable, quiet mode.
After assembling, I discovered one critical deviation. The ailerons were slightly twisted, leading to an offset of 1 to 1.5mm at the trailing edge. Fortunately, it was rather easy to correct that deviation by covering the elevators with a wet, hot towel and twisting the elevators in the opposite direction during a few minutes. Since the Scorpion shows an impressive flight performance, I still rate the product with 5 stars.

The Scorpion flies great in calm and moderate wind conditions. It can fly efficiently in slow and narrow circles while still keeping a certain dynamics. And it also can cross the sky efficiently with increased speed, in relation to its size. The Scorpion likes precise control in the narrow circles, without being over-demanding. Tip stalling is uncritical, as long as the ailerons are lowered only 1mm while the flaps are lowered 2mm. More camber does not improve the performance, I think.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the Scorpion.

E-flite UMX Whipit BNF DLG
16 May 2016
Review by: Brian Rivas

The Whipit looks more like a toy than a serious glider, and some of the online videos of it bobbing and flopping about only reinforce that impression.
But the Whipit is far from a toy and is the perfect introduction to the delights of DLGs : it isn't going to break the bank, you can learn the basic techniques of launching, and it is capable of putting in a very satisfying performance, while for experienced fliers this little glider is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Mine arrived by return post - another example of Hyperflight's legendary service.It comes securely packed in a colourful box and is ready to fly literally within minutes. All you will need is your transmitter, an Eflight 3.7 volt 150mah 1-cell 25C LiPo and a USB charger.
The upper flying surfaces are decorated with colourful stickers, but the ones on the wings have a lot of trapped air bubbles, so if you don't want the airfoil to resemble a ploughed field it's best to remove these - carefully. The tailplane and fin stickers aren't such a problem, and any minor bubbles can be removed by gently pricking with a pin or 10A scalpel blade.
The CG position is critical, and a small blob of white tack at the front of the battery housing does the trick. Without that, the Whipit will fly in a series of weak stalls, as seen on some videos.
When trimmed out, this is a delightful little model, capable of achieving a surprising launch height and strong enough to withstand a hard throw (there is no throwing peg, you just hold the wingtip - but the AUW is only 1.5oz).
As others have found, the nosecone can work loose and on one launch it parted company from the nose with the result that the battery and top hatch detached. No damage was done.
Perfect for calm weather in small spaces, the Whipit is very alive to the slightest thermal and, although it is no Elf, it delivers a lot more than you might expect. Thoroughly recommended.

Review by: Glen Cowan

My order of the 32mm HyperSpinner + optional white cone arrived swiftly considering that it had to come from the UK to Australia. I am very pleased with the quality of the spinner and the nifty way that the prop pins are held in. I had to do a little modification to get the prop to fold fully out, but this was no issue at all for me. Overall a very good spinner at a very reasonable price. Thanks Hyperflight

Review by: Ian

About 2 years ago I bought a Maxa4E from Hyperflight. It's taken me that long to get it finished - and I was very careful.

I maidened it about 4 weeks ago and am entranced by it. As many say, Vladimir makes beautiful models and this is no exception. It flies perfectly using the recommended set-up. It can fly amazingly slowly with zero tendency to tip stall - it is a very forgiving plane to fly. It picks up even gentle thermals well. It's not cheap but it's a brilliant model, thanks!

Blaster 3 DLG
8 May 2016
Review by: Henrik

The kit arrived at my door step after only a few days. Very well packed and protected in a huge sturdy cardboard box.
It's my first DLG, and also my first build of this kind, so I took my time and built/assembled the Blaster carefully and slowly over a couple of evenings, after having read through the Blaster3 build thread over at rcgroups.com.
It went together easily and as planned. Very impressed with the precision and build quality of this glider! Mr Vladimir sure seems to know what he's doing! Very light and at the same time stiff and strong.
KSTX08's for flaperons and Ripmax SD100's for the tail feathers. Fit easily inside the nose cone with unregulated 2s400mAh lipo. CoG at 85 mm without ballast, total weight 256g.
I set it up according to the manual with 4 flight modes.
Maidened it today, with no drama whatsoever. First a couple of light tosses, and then I tried some discus launches. The Blaster is a very docile and gentle flier, but at the same time highly maneuvrable! Caught a thermal on my 7th (or so) launch, what a Blast (pun intended) :-) :-)

6 May 2016
Review by: Steve Machin

Spotted this on the Hyperflight Web Site in the sale items with a good 25% discount. Arrived promptly and well packaged with no damage , not always the case with models sent via Parcel Post / Royal Mail.
Fuselage I found a little large for what is a light weight Electric thermal soarer and is too heavy really for what it is , that said I managed to balance mine with a Hacker A20 and a 1300 3 cell LiPo attached to a battery tray I fitted as far forward as possible.One criticism the factory fitted snakes are too narrow and both had kinks meaning the piano wires were binding , I had to use expanding foam at the tail end to stop the elevator snake bowing due to lack of internal anchorage

Wings Very nice light but strong with a good finish they fitted well to the fuselage no misalignment ect.

Rudder and Tailplane again well made and true when offered up.

I flew mine without a rudder I don`t think the 1.8 mtre span requires one for smooth turns.Good height retention and the MH32 section penetrates well . I opted for yellow and violet which probably doesn`t show as well as red but never the less is clearly visible at altitude.
All in all a nice model worth £200 probably not but good at £150.

Dream-Flight Alula-Trek

6 May 2016
Review by: Anonymous

My second Alula (the first is probably still floating in the sea after I accidentally launched inverted!). The new version is even more delightful to build, taking about 45 minutes from start to finish. The only problem was the supplied 4.3g servos jittered like crazy with various FrSky X-series receivers I tried. In the end I reverted to an MPX RX-5 Light which is in any case a much easier install than the FrSky X4R. I have yet to fly it but if it's anything like my first, I don't anticipate any issues.

Amazing discovery
3 May 2016
Review by: Simon

I only recently discovered this product. I've used it now on three homebuilds. Two 2.3m and one 1.5m gliders.
It is so easy to route through the fuselage/pod and lay along the boom and then just tack in place with super glue. I use a 22 SWG s/s wire pushrod. Works very smoothly and slop free, even with some curves in the run.
I didn't stretch the tube as it didn't seem necessary.

Supra Expert Electric F5J
Spring an many flying hours on . . .
1 May 2016
Review by: Anonymous

OK . . . its spring, my flying review. I was not to impressed with the Supras fusalarge arangement cockpit size etc, I made a number of mods including a replacement AVA pod/boom. At the end of the day I have finished up with the original fusalarge modified with a second cockpit cut between the original and the wing mount pylon, not priety but functional.

So how does Supra perform. I love the wing servo arangement, servoes can be replaced in just a few minuets, on the field if necisary! The 6100 servoes are a little delicate and vunerable on landing if you dont get the flaps up in time, I have done two since January!

Despite my inadequacies what about the flying ability of Supra. Frankly it is briliant, as I get used to it and adjusted the trim more to my liking, I prefer the CG a few more mm further forward than that recomended, a personal preferance.

The speed range is remarkably wide. Into wind, she can be held as though she were a bigger span, lighter loaded machine, that extra few mm of CG is helpfull.

Low level thermal sniffing is excelent, get the wing tip up, and keep the speed on, she flies away, doubling your height in no time. I have found no issues with tip stalling or nose droping that cant be anticipated. One is also impressed with Superas thermal indication, fly into a thermal and the nose lifts, even the lightest of thermals are visable, the same for wing tip and side slip indication, streight into a turn and away you go!

Flying gets 5+ stars in my book, just a poor fusalarge arangement . . . in my humble opinion?

The flying is so good, the envelope so wide, my 4m Pulsar and 4m Ava have stayed in the car.

Was looking for a 2m full works glider that would break the bank . Something that could be kept in the van those days you wish you had something to fly . The kit is basic but very well made the wing and tail have been finished to a high standard. The fuselage is very well molded and need very little finishing .The instruction are good but could do with a few more illustrations you will need to get control rods for the v tail as there where none in my kit ,and push rods for the wings again there here non .I set up the model as in the instruction and needed very little adjustment to get the model to fly as I like. In all I am very happy with the glider and it will be one I regularly fly .

Fabulous. Half the mass of equivalents, with better performance, and the neatest tuck along the fuselage in most models. Drag is much reduced, my Supra is virtually silent on glide.

I am disappointed that they do not suit my Kappa, but that is because of the peculiar shape of the plane at the nose of the fuselage. Perfect on my other models, though.

And they look cool!

Lovely DLG once i fix all the problems. Not just cosmetic. The rudder had a slot for the boom that had not made its way out of the glassing process well and had to have some major repair work.

Wing roots were 1mm thicker so the joining and glassing was fun...

Loads of other issues.

The actual design of the DLG is great and I hear it flies fantastic. :)

I have used several of the SD100 (also a couple of 150s) servos from Neil and found them great. They seem very reliable, centre well, are slop free and are ideal in lightweight models. Two points in their favour are that they can be fitted in a glider tail without the need for church roof to get CofG right and they will operate off 2S LiPos.

Just a little update. Still really happy with these fuselages. On my latest builds I've used Kevlar tape for reinforcement, although I've had no radio signal problems using carbon tape.
This fuse combined with the 18 - 8mm tapered carbon boom makes a perfect base for various set-ups.
So far I've used the fuse for a Super Gee 1.5m and a 2.3m version of the Allegro.

Dream-Flight Libelle
Very nice.
19 Apr 2016
Review by: Bruce

Arrived quickly. Easy to build with very few issues. Flies and floats very well with some flaperon active. After some some flat field thermalling I had my firsat sessiion with it on a slope where it penetrated the wind easily and was fairly agile. I shall increase the max aileron for faster roll I think.
Main issue is that the wings on mine as supplied are curved upwards, it flies well never the less but the servos need to work harder to work the ailerons because the hinge line is not straight. That sloping day ended for me when another flier belting around while I was floating, hit my Libelle which then appeard to just explode in front of my eyes. That now gives me the reason to rebuild the wing pieces and try to set them straight and with lesser dihedral, seems to have more than necessary as standard. Dream Flight put a great deal of thought and effort into producing efficient gliders and Hyperflight in the UK give very good service.

Review by: Bruce

I have used several of these now because with a hard nose in on the Alula the servos strip teeth both sides. I would think metal gears would be preeferable but have not tried any yet. I would like to try Ripmax SD100's because althought the Genings 531BB seem adequate in all respects they do chirp a lot and can be a little jerky. The SD100's I gather are extremely smooth which is a good thing for a finely set up Alula or Libelle.

SkyLite Veloce Electric Glider
aerobatic, but can float too
19 Apr 2016
Review by: Anonymous

This is the tailed version of the Speed-E (V tail). They fly well, roll rate is very good thanks to the fairly flat dihedral, stiff wing and decent amount of throw available using aileron and flaps coupled. Its a decent wing you will see on other models if you look around enough. Hyperion motor HPZ3013-14 fits..just, and is a wee bit heavy for this glider, but will balance with a 3s 2200 lipo beneath the wing bolts, leaving plenty of space for ESC and reciever. The glider floats well too, when some thermal flap is deployed, i've thermalled mine plenty. It's fairly light, so dont expect to be able to do big air aerobatics linking multiple manouvers using energy retention, this glider is best suited to climb and dive aero's, or making the most of slopes with marginal / intermittent lift, "slermalling", or floaty "warmlinering" etc !

These are great devices for the use in gliders where the batteries, receiver and important servos are HV, but other servos are classical and/or cheap ones, like retract, tow hook, or airbrakes.
In my large scale glider I have exactly this configuration. HV servos on the important "positions", like elevator and ailerons, and cheaper but reliable 5V servos on the airbrakes and the towhook...

Snipe & Blaster 3.5 fin and rudder
Snipe and Blaster 3.5 fin and rudder
31 Mar 2016
Review by: Brian Rivas

With a second Blaster 2 that has been waiting for several years to be built, I began to wonder how it might benefit from a Snipe and Blaster 3.5 tailplane, fin and rudder.
With Neil's customary superb service, the parts arrived the day after I ordered them, together with a tailplane mount and pull wire control runs. As the fin is asymmetric, I needed to rework the fin cut-out on the boom, but this was not difficult, while the rest of the conversion - with some forethought - was straightforward.
The model turned out to be a little lighter than a standard B2 and the first flights proved to be quite a revelation. I have been flying a B2 for about seven years, latterly with the smaller B3 tailplane, and am very familiar with its satisfying performance and forgiving characteristics. It's early days yet, and there's still some final trimming to be done, but launch height is superior to the B2 and the performance is much livelier, with a greater speed range and response to lift. I sense that good things are to come.
This has been a very worthwhile upgrade, and if you want to give your B2 a new lease of life, this is a satisfying way to go.
Even before I completed this model I ordered a B3.5 to complete my long-standing love affair with the Blaster, and the results on my modded B2 make me glad that I did.

balanced spot on at 82mm and 261g no ballast needed Looking forward to flying it.

26 Mar 2016
Review by: Brian Austin

As I have come to expect, the service from Hyperflight is first class, with a replacement for the MKS 6125 Mini, arriving next day from being ordered*****
However I do think these servo's have issues, that talking to other flyers have come to light. I had to replace this one that suddenly decided to behave in a very un-flyable way, by losing it's neutral position from when last flown coupled with a lot of jittering around neutral position.
Had to buy another due to it being fitted to a built up wing that means being able to fit between the rib spacing.

Carboline SC26/2/45 Spread Carbon Fabric +/- 45° 26g/m²
23 Mar 2016
Review by: John

This fabric is fantastic stuff. Super light almost like tissue but when laminated in resin on a wing or part of a molded boom, it becomes incredibly strong. It is expensive but there is nothing else like it on the market. The product is much better than the picture suggests. Recommended for wings of 1.5mtr span or less. Also, there is nothing better for tailplanes and fins etc.

A jewel of a machine,very easy to build and fly. Me second DLG after a super mini topsky ( which is great) and worth every penny.
I used Mks 6100 on the ailerons and KST x08' on the tail surfaces.
I chose to run the .8mm carbon push rod to the all moving stab inside the boom and a pull/ spring actuation,like wise through the boom, for the rudder. Very easy, looks so much better and nothing can catch.

A highly recomended aircraft! Of course hyperflights usual exemplary service.

This prop is a great product. The profile is very slim and it sure aids minimizing parasite drag on your glider.
It is also about half the weight of other similar size props!
I was expecting to get higher amperage out of this prop so perhaps it is a good idea to buy one with a coarser pitch that the one you are already using.
Overall, very satisfied!

This was my first glider kit, and I took my time to build it. I used a motor/ESC combo from another build, with the 9x5 prop it pulls about 18A. Not the most efficient, but it has a ton of power and easy vertical.

I followed the excellent manual regarding CG & deflections, and it flew perfectly on its maiden. At 415g AUW, the CG was perfect with a 1300 2S lipo. Total powertrain weight with prop & firewall was just under 60g.

HyperFlight's service was top notch, and ploof's RCGroups build log was very helpful, especially the discussion with Neil and other forum members.

The build if you are used to ARTF models may be a little more intimidating than anticipated however there are many building threads on the internet available for this model which I found a great help. If you are looking for your first proper DLG I would recommend the Longshot -4 the quality is excellent and it was a pleasure to build. Highly recommended for newcomers to DLG. Thanks to BARCS members for all the advice and help in choosing this model.

Red Fox RF300 (discontinued)
Red Fox RF300
Red Fox RF300 motor/gearbox 3:1
15 Feb 2016
Review by: Nigel

This unit as advertised suggests using a 3s LiPo for F5J applications and is probably a great choice for this discipline, but my intention was to use it in a mini Hotliner using 4s. My hardware installation comprises of a 1600mAh 4s LiPo, 40A ESC and RF 13" x 9" Carbon blades mounted on a 32mm HyperSpinner with cranked yolk. This combination is providing 433 Watts of power (in) whilst drawing 29.7A, which I suspect would be much too high for sustained full throttle use. As yet I haven't noticed any overheating problems with the Turnigy motor or the gearbox because I'm only using short throttle bursts coupled with the fact that the airframe and spinner offer excellent cooling. The AUW weight of my 1.4m span glider is 1.87Lbs. (851g) with a PWR of 230W/Lb. and this gives excellent vertical performance in true Hotliner style.
I rate this product highly as it appears nicely constructed and does exactly what I want it to at a very reasonable cost, but be warned that no instructions are provided to explain how the gearbox is uncoupled from the motor. This information is vital as gearboxes periodically require cleaning and re-greasing to ensure their longevity. However, having had other gearboxes it didn't take me long to work out how to disassemble the unit. Here's how it's done: On the front face of the gearbox there appear to be 4 mounting holes, but two of them house small hex drive grub screws which bear onto the motor adaptor thus preventing the gearbox from accidentally unscrewing. Simply slacken off the two grub screws and the gearbox can be unscrewed off the motor's adaptor for servicing. When reassembling be very careful not to over tighten the screws as they only need a slight nip to their job. One other, and perhaps obvious, point to note is with this motor being an outrunner, care has to be taken to keep the three wires clear of the rotating casing to avoid the obvious problems that will otherwise occur!
Finally, thanks to Neil for his usual excellent service.

Review by: Anonymous

This is one fine aeroplane. It is capable in more wind than I expected.

Assembly was straight forward, although care is necessary to ensure slop free servo set up in the wings. I used balsa wedges to best locate the push rods to prevent them moving in and out in the servo arm holes.

Finish on the carbon D box section on the wing tips is disappointing, with roughness where the fabric weave is partially proud. Some paint has come away from the wing tip when joining tape is removed.

Gripes aside, I am delighted with the plane, and give it 5 Stars on its performance!

Received two Altis Micros with Hyperflight's usual rapid service, downloaded the Flight Manager software and set about programming the units. Suitably confusing for an old brain but persistence paid off and I eventually found the process to be quite straightforward.

I checked the time accuracy on the bench then test flew both units which work flawlessly at any settings I program. I use them for ALES competition where small size and accurate operation is important. The recording capability is of limited value to me at the moment.

The Altis Micro does everything I want it to and seems to be a better quality item than the switches I was using previously. I'll probably buy a third plus a Device Terminal.

Supra Expert Electric F5J
Experience needed . . .
20 Jan 2016
Review by: Anonymous

‘Supra has been around a long while, in various modification upgrades, currently I love the way she flies. If there is lift about she will find it and show you where it is. I have found that she will scratch on a gnats **rt at 20ft, producing tight thermal turns without the hint of a stall. I am currently investigating why she will do this and think I have worked it out.

. . . On last approach 30 seconds to go, another model on the same time and in the same air, throw a tight thermal turn with confidence and you have the ‘time’, just make sure you have the spot. As I say after todays session I think I know why Supra can do this . . .

However, when one pays £1000 for a moulded e-glider kit one expects things to be right, the wings are right, the tail is OK, but the bit that holds them together as a flying machine needs a serious revamp on dimension and better use of available space and access in view of modern and recent component availability . . . ? Experience stepped in and ‘I made what I had, work’. As a first moulded composite F5J, one would have been asking questions.

. . . that said, I cant wait for some warm weather so that I can get the trim spot on and really see what I can squeeze out of Supra, despite the difficulties and unsightly surgery that had to be done.’

Flying performance is worth 5 stars, the present fuselage can only rate at 4 stars.

Kit looks very well manufactured. I have the mini graphite, the graphite, super ava etc and this Supra kit is also designed very well.

Unfortunately it arrived damaged and incomplete. The damage was not caused by transport, because for/during transport it was packaged very well. One of the corners of the flaps was broken/damaged and also the tailboom had a tear of 3,5 cm at the beginning.

Some parts for the battery-tray were missing.

This is going to fit the bill perfectly and takes care of the motor, electrics, wing seat and boom, which will make the build so much easier.

Blaster 2 DLG F3K
Great
2 Jan 2016
Review by: Olaf

The kit came faster than expected. Planned as a Christmas gift it had its maiden 2 weeks before the holiday. I could not resist :)

The kit is of very good quality, assembly went fast without any problems. I used HV components, so I can use a 2s lipo without BEC. To get the CoG to where it should be, I put all servos into the pod and used a 450 mAH battery, no extra ballast needed and endless flight time.

It glides really great. Even when the conditions aren't that good, it is fun watching it floating around as if it is weightless.

Thumbs up ;)

Sapphire Fuselage-suitable for 1.5m-3m gliders & eSoarers
Perfect for my home builds
30 Dec 2015
Review by: Simon

I've bought two of these fuselages, one normal and one with the nosecone cut and firewall fitted, which for the extra £3.00 is more than worth the money and effort.
I'm scratch building a 1500 (60") DLG and an electric version too, along the lines of the SuperGee II. Originally I was going to make my own fuse but this Sapphire fuse takes care of everything, "why reinvent the wheel?"
The wing position and wing seating are taken care of along with the tapered spigot which the 18-8mm boom just fits right on to. The Blaster 2 & 3 V mount fits the boom giving you an 'all moving tail'
On the 'cut nose' version it looks like the guys have already taken care of the 'down' and 'right' thrust fitting the firewall. I've fitted a little D2822-14 1450kv outrunner motor which slots straight in perfectly. I'm going to be using a 8x6 folding prop, 2s Lipo with a 30A ESC. It's only for initial altitude.
The 'cut nose' fuse also came with pre-drilled plywood wing mounts already fitted. The fuse is super light but I felt it could with a little stiffening and added a carbon tape on the inside along the bottom and both sides. This stiffened the fuse significantly and added very little weight. (in hindsight I probably should have used Kevlar for radio purposes)
The fuse already comes with stiffening around the top edge at the canopy opening, wing seat and down through the inside of the spigot where the boom fits.

All in all, I'm really pleased with the Sapphire fuse and am planning to use it as my base pod for gliders up to 3m.

The service from Hyperflight was superb and they were very helpful with their aftersales information over the telephone.

Maxa Pro 4 F3J

29 Dec 2015
Review by: ian duff

This is my second Maxa pro 4m F3j plane. The finish is up there with the best and I have opted again to go with the windy lay-up. A very competitive and easy model to fly.

The latest model has picked up on earlier customer feedback and goes together very easily. One tip though. When fixing the boom to fuz do check the fit first with the spigot on the pod. The pro has a long boom and the fit needs to be tight to avoid the glue joint subsequently failing.

Highly recommend the model.

Good quality, but beware- it does not fit into the 6mm internal diameter tube. Way too tight. Hyperflight's solution is to 'sand it down with wet and dry'. Great pity.
The 3mm does fit its respective tube. Cannot comment on other sizes, do not want to be caught again...

Wish I could select the color spinner I want instead of buying the black one with the hub and then having to spend more money to purchase the yellow spinner . Had to scrape some yellow overspray in the notches to get the spinner to fit the hub without having to force it into position . It can be difficult to get the cone onto the hub correctly but if you persist it will go on .

32mm HyperSpinner Power for 6mm shafts
Hyperspinner
8 Dec 2015
Review by: Nigel

I already have one of these spinners with a 4mm shaft, but due to the larger output shaft on my new motor/gearbox assembly this 6mm variant was required. This really is a top quality unit, but as another reviewer said the spinner needs relieving slightly to allow larger propellers to deploy fully. A Graupner Cam Folding 13" x 7" in my case.
As ever I received an extremely fast service from Hyperflight, so many thanks to all concerned.

This spinner is very light and nicely made, the offset pivots definitely allow the blades to sit closer to the fuse when the motor is off (providing you have the brake enabled on your esc)
The pins are very smooth and allow the prop to open with very little power input.
A great product with the usual excellent service from Hyperflight

MKS HV737 High Speed Servo - 15mm 38g 10.2Kg.cm
6 Dec 2015
Review by: Hughw

I bought one of these to replace the elevator servo on a Sebart Su29 e50 v2 ; its a big elevator and to fly nicely needs accurate servo response and minimal dead-band width. I was so impressed with it, I purchased 3 more to replace the rest. The only thing to be careful with is the servo arms (25t) are far too tight and require careful handling. I used a spare 25t servo to wear them in before fitting to the HV737
and used a spare M3 cap head bolt to draw them in as per recommendations on various forums.

F5D folding prop
4 Dec 2015
Review by: Nigel

I have a Voodoo which seems to break conventional props at an alarming rate upon landing, so I decided to try one of these folding assemblies to cut my losses. The unit is exquisitely made, extremely light and is a perfect fit on a Mega 16/15/3 shaft. I wasn't sure how to check the balance of the unit because the blades are riveted in place with yolk and spinner bonded as one unit, so disassembly is a none starter. I decided to gently run it up to check for balance, but it proved to be perfectly ok so I assume they're dynamically balanced at the factory. Using a freshly charged 1400mAh 3s 30C pack I recorded a steady 29.3A, which is somewhat lower than the 34.4A of the Graupner Cam Speed 4.74" x 4.75" props which I have been using. Also, this folding prop is quieter than Graupner's offerings which is an added bonus. As yet I haven't flown the Voodoo with this prop so it would be unfair to comment on its performance, but I suspect it'll be very efficient.
One final note; Many thanks to Neil for his usual excellent speedy service.

Bought one of these to use with my Multiplex M Link system, unfortunately the 1st one would stop randomly, I sent it back to Hyperflight and they not only had a new one back to me straight away, but also copied me on correspondence with the factory re the faulty unit. Replacement unit has been fine and links well with M Link telemetry system although speed is incorrect in the telemetry readout, but reads correctly on the data explorer, Aerobtec are aware of this and there should be a firmware fix soon. Data is very easy to download and analyse. Note the addresses on the M Link system are fixed and as follows
2 - Altitude [m]
3 - Vario [m/s]
4 - Ground Speed [km/h]
5 - Distance from first fix [km]
6 - Bearing angle [°]
7 - Maximal altitude [m]
8 - Odometer [km]
9 - Maximal distance form start [m]
10 - Temperature v [°C]

Overall a great little unit.

The battery you need for the Libelle. I did order a 2s LiPo- but the KS HD47MG servos are NOT (despite being sold as) high voltage. This is actually a better bet, as you need weight in the nose anyway, so the fact it is heavier than LiPo is not important.

Review by: Tony Butterworth

i bought these to use in a 3D model (using a 4S power system) that had large surfaces that moved to extreme positions - hence i needed servos that would provide power , speed and high resolution . I was dubious that a £25 servo could meet my reqts however reviews from other pilots advised they were worth a look. Having now fitted these servos to the model i can advise that they meet all my reqts and even with extended arms on servos there centering is spot on . There is no servo hum at neutral , speed is superb and they provide a really tight link to all control surfaces . i have used the metal servo arms supplied , these ensuring a solid link to all control surfaces . torque more than adequate for my model , in future i will use these on larger model (6s ) - highly recommended

A short time ago, I purchased the Leomotion 3013 for my Supra. I wanted to let you know how happy I am with the purchase. I now have my power set up with a:

14 x 9 prop
3S 1300 mah Lipo
50 Amp ESC

My 64 oz supra (I have a couple of telemetry sensors on board for my Jeti radio) climbs between 8.8 and 10 m/s (depending on how fresh the battery is). Neither the motor, battery, or ESC gets warm. With this set up, I can get 3 power on's and I'll use up less than 750mah of the battery.

Thanks again for your help and patients with me! I'm a VERY happy customer!

Best Regards, Jeff

Dream-Flight Libelle
good for slope too...
15 Nov 2015
Review by: MikeM

Fast delivery, as always from Hyperflight. Goes together quickly, although fitting gear is tight- I am using a Spektrum AR400, and this fitted best in front of the servos. Needed around 25g of lead in the nose- I could not get close to the advertised AUW but I did use the wing strengthening stickers which must add some extra weight.
Only two outings so far (weather...) both to the slope. Performs well, even in quite gusty conditions.I feel this is more of a slope machine than a DLG, but it will be a good introduction to this when weather permits.
Well thought out design, and value for money - lets you try DLG without spending a fortune, and is a useful sloper even if you find DLG is not for you.

Beautifully engineered motor. The substantial front bearing requires an unacceptably large clearance hole in the firewall if a normal fibre glass plate is used. I made up a nylon spacer on the lathe but soon changed it for the PNC Innovations motor mount. Worth every penny and gives a very secure and attractive mounting.
The claimed outputs seem a bit optimistic considering the manufacturers 45A rating. However I got 470W on the bench on a 14x10 using a good 3S which I hope will be sufficient in my ALES Optimus EL.

I am so impressed with this servo that so far I have bought 8 of them and have decided to make the DSM44 my standard choice for small gliders and electro gliders. I cannot find a better servo at the price. I decided to mark harshly and give 4 stars, dropping a star for the slop.

Review by: Alex Eremenko

I've got Circle Dancer 3000 RES plane from Hyperflight as an optional entry into "woody" contests. Usually, I am flying high end open, RES, ALES planes. So, the following is my feedback for Circle Dancer 3000 RES plane:
- Hyperflight did an excellent job of the packing and shipment. Plane arrived to California quickly and safe.
- Airframe quality and finish are very good. No complains here.
- I've made some modifications during assembly process. I've replaced push roads by carbon push roads. Replaced steel tips joiners by titanium. Used both of them at the initial flights. Better dynamics with Ti joiners. Modified spoiler actuation by using pin on the servo arm and slot on the spoiler. Installed spoiler servo in the frame for easy servicing if required. Added supporting pin for the rudder at the bottom of the fuselage. Added Vladimir's tow hook (no tow hook provided with the kit)
- Shortened all four plastic mounting bolts.
One note - if I will assemble this plane again, I would change stab control horn to a straight one. Would help with stab at-the-field assembly process.
Also, bolted wing and stab interfaces could be improved in structural and aerodynamics aspects.
Plane ended up very light. Thermals well. Almost as a HGL.
What I wish to have is more strong tips to center panel interface. It will be good to know if builder wrapped tube spare at the joiners interfaces (cannot see that, hidden by shear webs). Plane is very sensitive to tow loads, cannot take any error in applied launch loads. Launch is challenging and week aspect of this plane.
Other then that very good soaring machine.

Great price, speed and power is good. Centering could be better, but just good enough to be acceptable. Looking at about 7-8 Usec dead-band on a servo tester.

Had several of these from various sources. They seem to either get the twitches and fail within an hour, or last for hundreds of flights. This particular one was bought to replace a 300 plus good flight one.... but it failed within an hour! As I cut the plug off to solder straight onto lightweight RX... can hardly return it ;-(

Review by: Richard

After much deliberation I bought a blaster e. The quality of the model is higher than anything I have seen before and the delivery from hyperflight excellent.
I went against the advice of Neil and tried to use an sd100 for the elevator and a cheaper alternative for the rudder. Beware alternatives do not fit.
The build was ok, the only problem being that one of the Dsm44 servo was faulty and was only obvious once installed. To Hyperflight's credit they sent a replacement the following day. With an incredibly low built weight the performance of the Blaster is sublime in light winds. I have yet to try it in something stronger. Unfortunately I flew it into a goalpost on my local field resulting in some damage to the wing. Although sadly it is no longer as pretty as it was it still flies very well after a repair. Definitely recommended.

After smashing the boom through not checking the rx battery, this part and the wing did survive. 160mAh and a booster = a lot less capacity than I thought!

The carbon rod is a bit tricky to extract so I had to order a new stab. This means I have a spare tail. Not worried as a carbon fishing pole tip fits. So I now have a spare fuz.

But the price of the complete replacement boom is so good, that it's hardly worth it.

Top quality product, delivered very quickly!

Review by: Martin Church

Bought to house my Willow 2 this bag is perfect for
safe storage of its wing fuselage carbon joiner & tail panels.
I was a little concerned initially on cost but when it turned up
it was obvious to see this is a high quality item.
The fuselage compartment has two zip'sat the nose end so you can simply unzip & charge the model whilst still in the bag.
I'd liked to have seen some Velcro straps for securing a vee tailed model with its tails left on as sometimes I need to quickly swap slope sites & removing vee tail panels is a pain if left on in the bag the fuselage can spin round & catch a tail panel on gates etc. It's something I could do myself in fairness.
The inner baffles help keep expensive moulded model wings apart.
There are three of them for a three piece wing.
All in all very good value for the money 5 stars.

Fireworks Mini-Q and Mini-Q Carbon
Mini-Q
15 Sep 2015
Review by: Peter Mitchell

Like every other model I have bought from Hyperflight, my Mini-Q arrived safe and sound along with a few SD100 servos and a 2s lipo. for the model all packed securely in a big carton.
All the moulded parts of the model are of an excellent standard, and fit perfectly. There are a number of wood components which require careful attention, but the instructions detail exactly how to prepare and install these. It made a nice change to be sanding balsa wood to an airfoil section again, just like the old days. Although I do have experience building dlg’s, I followed the instructions as near as I could and found them very helpful.
First flights (and only flights so far) were on a still evening and I found the model had a surprising glide angle. It floated so well. With practice I was able to gradually increase launch height so that a reasonable glide could follow, but had to stop when the tailplane popped off on a hard landing.
One thing I found that I really missed during my evening testing was a rudder. The controls detailed in the instructions are for aileron and elevator only and they work very well. But I thought the model would be better with a rudder and have now modified the tailfin to have a rudder and installed another SD100 to control it. Not yet had a chance to try this new configuration, but I am hopefull that it will be a success.
Care is needed to keep all additional weight to a minimum. But I chose durability over weight saving for the tail end of the model and used lightweight Oracover for the tailplane and fin. With three servos and 8g of nose weight my models flying weight was 158g. Now with an extra servo and only 5g of nose weight, the total flying weight is still only 163g.
I am unable to launch a normal size dlg these days, but I am now looking forward to hand launch flying again with this super little model.

I went through a number of dlg planes (hk mini, dreamflight libelle) but Alula Trek (after few hours of getting used to) proven to be the most reliable, the most roughbust plane I ever had. Can take a lot of beating, can survive adding more and more pennies to the nose as a balast (i noticed that the CoG is actually a bit further to the nose than recommended -takes 3 pennies to balance right with HiTec Minima receiver on board :)).

I was amazed at the beautifull finish of the aluminium part of the spinner. Really nice and tight fit of the propeller to the fuselage.
I also like the set screws to the propeller shaft. But the spinner is only OK, it is very well connected to the aluminiun parts, but it deformed easily when the propeller was bent forward, and I expect that it will not take many unscrewings.

All in all I will buy this product again and recommend it for the incredible fit and aluminium workmanship.

Elf Mini DLG
7 Sep 2015
Review by: Brian Rivas

I've been flying DLGs for about eight years, mainly the Blaster 2 and what I call the Blaster 2.5, which is the 2 with the smaller tailplane of the Blaster 3. Terrific gliders; I love them.
But for a spot of extra fun, I decided to get an Elf. Fun? It's certainly that - and a whole lot more besides.
The stunning build quality is matched only by the sensational performance. The launch is fast, high and satisfying and things just go on getting better, the Elf reacting instantly to the slightest lift, while response to control inputs is immediate and precise.
It has a surprisingly wide speed range, and is very sensitive to set-up of the all-moving tailplane.
Things are a tight fit in the nose cone, and the Shread battery, although quite expensive, is the way to go, both for its user-friendly qualities and its on-off switching facility which can be accessed by cutting a small hole in the cone. You shouldn't need any extra nose weight.
The Elf performs way beyond its size and price, so is it a beginner's model? It could be, but it's so beautiful you wouldn't want to risk damaging it, so maybe better to go for something cheaper and more expendable as a first DLG.
For me, this lovely glider is a revelation and an absolute delight to fly.
Dealing with Hyperflight is always a pleasure, and if everyone gave the kind of service that Neil provides, the world would be a better place.

Review by: Geoff

I live only a few miles from Hyperflight, so I was able to collect the ELF in person. Neil was very helpful, he showed me his ELF and gave me some building tips. I'm used to foamies, the ELF is in a totally different league. The quality of this model is exceptional. This model is not difficult to assemble as long as you take care and have patience. I added a Spektrum AR6115e (minus case) , two SD100 servos and a smart Lipo. The flying weight came out at 100g. It balanced perfectly at 75mm without any ballast. The morning after I finished the model turned out to be ideal for a first test flight, almost no wind. Initial test glide was uneventful, straight and level with no radio input. That must be a fluke I thought, so I tried a couple more. The subsequent flights were carbon copies of the first. I have never flown DLG's before so it was a learning experience for me. For the launch a little down elevator is helpful. This is quite easy to set up on a programmable radio. As well as no wind, there was no sun, so thermal activity was absent. The best unassisted flight I had was 29 secs. I was quite happy with that for a first attempt.

Review by: Iain Glithero

I purchased this model from Neil for several reasons: I have always like Drela's design philosopy. It is the right size for ALES/F5J. It has the control surface configuration I prefer, REF, and the price is very reasonable for the size and type of model.
I bought this model in the UK and carried it back home to the USA on a comercial flight. With correct packing it survived the baggage handling process!!
When I examined the model it became obvious the this is a very well designed and executed model. All parts fit well, the wing joiners are MASSIVE but not heavy. The fiberglass work is superb and the covering is very well done. Such items as threaded inserts for wing, horizontal and vertical tails are all in place and my only comment here is that the bolts for the wing are too long! (Easy to fix).
It is refreshing to have servo covers for the flaps which auctally clear the servo arms easily.
I located the servos for Rudder and elevator under the canopy, and installed a geared Redfox Eco 400 motor with a 13X7 A-M folding prop, but the CG is 10mm too far forward. ( how often does that happen?) I am using a Hyperion 3S 1400mAh HV battery and I don't think I can go much lighter here.
I hope I do not need to add weight to the tail.
I intend to fly with the slightly forward CG and see how it handles to begin with.

AUW is 55oz.

To start with a great service form Hyperflight and speedy delivery. What a brilliant little glider, easy to put together and very portable with the wings and tail simply disconnecting. But the best thing is how unbelievably tough it is. Had a couple of very hard nose first landings and it shakes them off without any damage. That plastic skid/reinforcement was an inspired piece of design. Gives you great confidence and means you can fly virtually anywhere. Flying is a joy, on a flat field with a slight breeze it just floats, with a bit of ballast on a slope it can handle a decent breeze and stays up forever. Has completely sold me on DLG.

Review by: Paul

The Longshot 4 built quickly and easily. Almost all parts needed were included (missed the aileron pushrods). I used a large battery (820 mAHr, 4 triple A NiMH) and a large(ish) 6 channel receiver and was able to balance it with no problem at the recommended 80mm location with no additional weights. Once flown, I chose to move the CG forward about 6mm with a small additional weight in the nose. All up, about 320 grams. In my testing, it launches well and floats well, even though over weight as built. Speed with a slight reflex is great for thermal hunting or exiting sink. All this and much tougher than hollow construction.

Review by: Cliff Stone

Most of the time I fly large competive 3.6m to 4m span gliders. The same as in the 80's and 90's flying ic pylon racers most of the time, I wanted something to relax with. In those days it was a 'Super 60', that lasted me 6 or 7 years befor I passed it on to new pilot to learn on.

I wated something that was cheap'ish, different with a fun elliment and that could be flown on the club field and off the nearby 'cliffs' over looking the promanard and a handalable size, putting 4m competition gliders together in windy conditions can be a fag! Ticking boxes was not easy, always one or two were debatable, especialy price.

Sixmonths on, I was drawing a blank, feeling hedged in to a corner to compromise. A friend asked me,'could I sugest a model that he could take trecking up big hills to slope soar' . . . Deep thought, a bit of webb searching, looking in corners of web sites I would not normaly visit.

Zulu poped out, not only does it fit my friends needs, but with an electric motor fitted, it ticked all my boxes too.

That was last week, it arived on Wednesday, ARTF, meanes there was not much to do . . . Moldings are excelent quality, plenty of carbon stiffening, the motor firewall was fitter as were the servoes, not much to do then?

Not quite as simple as it seemed, the fire wall was in on the cant, the carbon wing joiner was to tight a fit and because I was fitting a motor, getting the battery far enough back was a problem.

I have headed this as 'value for money' . . . the problems are not serious for a modeller with some experiance and a stock of bits and pieces. This is not a novices model so we assume first hurdle over. The fire wall was cut free half way round, pushed a bit with an 8mm, 70mm long bolt installed as a sighting post, foam friendly SG applied and that was fixed. Ten minutes with some very fine silicon glass paper had the carbon wing joiner fitting like a glove.

That was Wendesday sorted, Thursday we installed the motor, and fitted the radio. To get the battery far enough back required a little sugery making an extra hatch, made easy with a 'new' scalpe blade. Pluging the wings in and temporary fit the tail to get the CG right, spot on with a little extra lead. I dont like carry lead but as I had used a slightly heavier motor than recomended, I took the hit on the chin, it was a motor I had in stock . . .

Unpluged everything, epoxied the fin in place and shut the shed door, end of Thursday.

Friday morning, up sharp, perfect flying weather, the one thing I had not checked, will the servo cables fit the holes provided in the wing and would they be long enough . . . not a problem. Half an hour and Zulu was ready to go.

Arived at the field, friends were there already. Zulu was admired, we all were wondering the same question, 'how will the Drooperons affect the flying'? I had seen the video so I new she would fly but where not to sure of the control throws? Earring on the conservative side, 50% looked good . . . Range check, cup off tea, cant find any other excusess. The lanch was a bit of a non event, Zulu climbed away, I did not touch the stick for some seconds and the trims were not alterd for a minute or so.

Problem . . . she was very tame . . . ??? Just flew sedatly around, we found the speed envelope was low'ish, half throttle, above that it was easy to induce wing flutter? She is a clean machine, weighs 200 grams more that the pure glider version, so builds up kernetic energy easily in sharp turns.

It was easy to get used to the speed envelope Zulu liked, it suited me to, remeber this was an exersize in relaxation. However I'm not a total misery. Therefore, I went to 100% movement, those are 'very big' control surfaces, introduced some expotential to smooth things out. Worked a treat, now she was beginning to show what she was made off, fun, fun, fun.

The next flight I put in some aielron diferential, things were realy coming together . . . As I say 'value for money', its going to take me a while to explore the abilities of Zulu. I wont get chance to try the local cliffs untill autum, it is a winter site, to many holiday makers, children, kites and dog walkers!

Zulu gets my thumbs up at a fair price too.

A large box arrived next working day after order. Inside all was beautifully packed. All parts were of the highest build quality, but there were no instructions of any kind. Not critical: if you are building a model such as a Hyper it won’t be the first model of this type you have built but having to check the Hyperflight web site for control throws and CG is a nuisance and even on the site no values to set neutral for the all-flying tail are published.

One disappointment was the lack of lightweight servo covers which I had expected with a model at this price.

The Build.

I started with the wing. Originally I planned to use 5g servos for the ailerons and a 9g servo for the flap. Unfortunately a bad batch of 5g servos meant a change to 7.5g. I had to polish one of the wing joiners to get it to fit but otherwise all went easily.

I then taped the fin to the boom and bolted on the tailplane, positioned the rest of the hardware in the pod and did a trial balance to determine whether I could fit a 7.5g servo in the fin or whether it would be necessary to fit it beneath the wing beside the elevator servo. I planned to use a 950KV 72g 28mm diameter outrunner rated at 200-220W and this required 4mm to be cut from the nose to allow clearance for the wires. With an 850mA 3S battery, the balance point was perfect with the servo in the tail. If necessary I could move the battery 20mm either way for a final balance.

The fuselage build was straightforward even given the need to make a new firewall and fit it into the trimmed nose. The fin was lined up using the tail as a reference and once the glue had set, the boom was glued to the pod using the wing centre section as a reference. The fit of the boom to the pod was probably the best I have seen requiring no special jig to produce a true fit.

So, all that remained was to set the control throws to the published values on the web site and at this point I hit a problem with the all moving tailplane. The horns supplied were a set of three short horns for the wing and two long horns for the rudder and tailplane. With the tail mount holding the tailplane well above the boom it was obvious that it would be necessary to bend the pushrod upwards as the horn was well above the exit point from the boom. I found a couple of pictures on the web that confirmed this and, although mechanically this seemed wrong, I made a bent pushrod, dry fitted the horn, connected the servo to a servo tester and measured the movement. The recommended throws are 10mm up and down. I was getting only 2-3mm up: down exceeded the spec.

I then made a longer horn so that the hole was level with the exit from the boom and inserted a straight pushrod. This gave a couple of mm more movement but still not 10mm.

At this point it was obvious that something had to be done. After disconnecting the pushrod from the servo, manually pushing the wire revealed that on the up stroke it was binding at the rear exit point. When installing the pushrod wire and outer, I had glued the outer at the start of the boom, where the rudder servo wires entered the boom, and at the rear. The exit needed a slot (or at least a larger hole) rather than the existing one. With the model completed the only way to progress appeared to be to remove the pushrod wire and drill out the exit point from the rear. The worry was that I might never be able to get the wire back into the outer and would then have to somehow dissemble the boom.

As it turned out my fears were unfounded. I drilled and even with the outer now free of the rear exit point I was able to thread the pushrod from the re
