Quality.

A great quality kit, beautiful wood and really accurate cutting. Assembly requires care as some of the parts are delicate until firmly glued. I'm currently halfway through building so I cannot comment on flying, but from experience I have no fears in that area. All in all, well produced, well presented and a pleasure to put together.

Great dlg ki

Super kit. In the 70's I remember cutting out ribs from poor quality balsa in kits. This lazer cut stuff is great. This wing design of the Alt is amazing. Fits together like a jigsaw. Brill

Alt dlg

Purchased 2 Vick Alta from Neil @ Hyperflight. DLG kits are virtually non existent in the US. Neil so kindly put both kits in one box and saved me half the shipping.
The quality of the kits is amazing. The first wing half was a little fidgety to assemble took about two hours. The next three I got better on each one. The last one took about 45 minutes. The build log on referenced on the Hyperflight website is great, my only wish is they had taken fewer pics of each step of each wing rib assembly and givenore pics of final setup. Fuselage is very small and I could not get micro servos to fit any way I tried so I modified it by widening it by about 1 cm, now plenty of room. 2 micro servos, 6 ch Radiolink rec the heat shrink Ed model, and a Spectrum 300 mah 2s life battery all fit find. These are my retirement project planes. Hoping to get restarted in the rc hobby.
Overall great kits and Super service from Neil @ Hyperflight

Return to Silent Flight

What a great little kit. It has been a pleasure to build and I cant wait to get it in the sky.
There is alot of information available online so I could check my progress at each stage.
The frame has gone together straight and true and is bang on the nose at 148g though I may need a touch of trim weight.
A really cost effective way of getting back into this lovely hobby.

Alt DLG build

Great kit and overseas shipping was fast. This glider has a nice, rigid wing structure. Still finishing covering, my iron broke so I had to get a new one. A little confused by control string tensioner? Iím used to building models with conventional push-rods

It looks like a very nicely put together kit.
The build log looks good - hoping to get the time to put the model together soon.

Alt 1m DLG

Superb laser cutting of balsa parts. The build log is a bit long winded in places however most of the build is shown. Ideally I would have prefered instructions and a wing plan rather than have to download and print the A4 sheets to the correct scale and then tape them together.

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.
