Alt 1m

I just finished building all the structure( wing,elev/stab,fin,rudder,and fues).It took about 3 days to build,a few hours a day.The wood is good and the laser cutting excellent.All the parts fit perfectly,very nice to build.Take your time lining up the wing ribs to avoid having to undo them.I fiberglassed the bottom of the fues and around the rear where the carbon boom exits.I also put carbon fiber on the rudder,fin,elevator and stab.I hope it flies as well as it was to build.Great bargain.

Alt 1m

The kit arrived very quickly, 4days to the US in perfect condition. I have been building model airplanes for 70 yrs and am very impressed with the kit. It was in a nice box, good looking laser cut balsa and hardware.This is the 3rd kit I purchased from Hyperflight and all the transactions were perfect. Thank you Hyperflight.

Great DLG

Great glider and easy to build following the step by step instructions from the photo album. Very fast delivery and great experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enter in the DLG world.

All Built

Finnally got round to building the Alt Dlg. With help of build log, easy to build and almost perfect laser cutting. Trailing edge needed thin cyno to stiffen it up, everything else good. Perfect intro to DLG and building. Emax 4 gram servos are a squeeze and need lower cases removed to fit. AUW of 142 grams using a 2S 300 lipo and 2 gram regulator stock Lemon 6 ch RX... but it sadly needs 5 grams in the nose to balance, so 147 grams.

Hope this helps :-)

Alt DLG kit

Not a bad kit to build and OK flyer, had to put the servos under the wing to get a NiMH battery in and CG in right place. Some of the wood choices were odd - quarter grain for the trailing edge? The carbon boom on mine was split which I didn't notice until after I'd built it, Neil sent me some SC to repair it but it simply splits somewhere else next launch so will probably need to replace it at some point. But for this would have given it 4 stars.

Quick Delivery

Very quick delivery and yes it does come in a nice box.. with an interesting twist printed inside. I don't expect this model to be competitive, but it is good quality at a very good price. Build looks easy wirh lots of info on web. A great introduction to DLG or the art of balsa construction.
