Review by: AnonymousNice Project
This is a nice glider to tinker with. I oriented myself on the manual of the Slingshot V5 to add some elevons to the build. It still has a good glideslope with 180g flightweight (and a 5g screw in the news).
The manual could be clearer with how to attatch the string to the servos and wing attatchment.
I recommend buying two. One to train building on and one to build right.

Very nice little model!
A delight to assemble. Finished structure is heavier than stated in the specs above, but sill feather-feeling.

Excellent little plane, ideal introduction to DLG.
Review by: Sture, from sweden.Big Vick Build
Just finished the build. Maiden flight remains. Definetely not for beginners, but I'm not.( I am 70 now, built models since 10)
You learn a lot about different glue types, and about tape covering.
I have a very small 4ch receiver, two 4,3 g servos, a 5V boost converter (saved from a powerbank). With a 750mAh 1S (AA cell) total weight is 127 g and CG is about right.
Looking forward to the maiden, Fun to build, tricky to install pull-string control though. Recommend the kit. Good starting model to learn DLG before you take next step in the hobby.
Review by: PeterGood entry level plane
Nice plane. Easy and fun to build. Instructions could be better but there is a lot to find on the web.
I highly recoomend this plane.
Review by: Sean SimmsQuality, Fun and a bargain!
Perfect for me to try DLG, the quality of the wire cut parts is great. Fast assembly and surprising flying capabilities. Will probably buy another before investing in an Elf.
