The Circle Dancer 2000 RES is a great build it yourself 2m F3-RES kit model with an excellent pedigree. The model is supplied as a kit of CNC cut balsa, ply and carbon parts. The nicely drawn large full size plan includes English translations of all text. A brief photo-illustrated manual is avalable, but as the text is in Czech only the kit is more suitable for seasoned builders.

The fuselage consists of a wooden pod with a large access hatch ready-fitted with securing magnets. At the font a large nose block is hollow to take lead shot nose weight. Inside the pod a plywood tray is used for mounting the rudder and elevator servos. The servos can be up to 24 mm long by 12 mm wide. The pod includes nuts to take the wing mounting screw and fittings to take the supplied adjustable tow hook. The carbon tailboom cleverly slides into the read of the pod and locates into a rear bulkhead. A pylon for mounting the tailplane is molded into the rear of the tailboom, together with flats for the fin to be glued to. The tailboom also has been fitted with low friction plastic pushrod outer tubes and wire pushrods.

Although the fuselage is mainly intended for pure glider use the pod is quite large and it can easily be built as an electric glider, with a 30 mm or 32 mm spinner.

The all balsa fin includes a large rudder for good directional control. The tailplane is similarly constructed and both are attractively shaped, giving the model a charming look.

The wing centre panel incorporates a substantial spruce spar and top surface forward sheeting to minimise drag. The centre panel incorporates a large spoiler for accurate landing and safely exiting strong thermals. The spoiler servo can be up to 10 mm thick. The ends of the centre panel have magnets built in to keep the tip panels in place. The tip panels are more lightly built and use front riblets to help maintain the correct forward airfloil shape. The tip panels are attached to the centre panel with a beautifully molded carbon dihedral brace.

The accessory pack includes the adjustable tow hook, control surface horns and other small fittings. The spoiler is designed to be actuated by a long spoiler servo output arm. The tail surfaces are intended to be connected directly to the wire pushrods with L bends. No clevises are supplied or needed in our opinion, but a keeper will be required to ensure the L bends don't become detached. The carbon tailboom fairing visible in some photos is not included in the current kit, as it contravened the German F3-RES rules. The current fuserlage is longer and does not need this part.

First impression on opening kit that this is another superb example of an F3 RES kit, without the unnecessary frills. A well laid out plan and good quality components. Can't wait to get started

Update to previous review

Following lockdown I had the first chance to fly the circle dancer a couple of weeks ago.
First bungee flight for 40 years, went up like a dream, caught some late evening lift and maxed out at 8 minutes landing in the circle. Came second in that evening's club competition after 3 more shorter flights. All in all very impressed as were other club members.

Can't fault Hyperflight's customer service, kit received within 48 hours of ordering, also I had a few questions regarding the instructions which are in Czech and again I had an answer within 48 hours not only from Hyperflight but also the manufacturers.
Now to the kit, the components are very good quality, I was very pleased when opening the package.
The fuselage goes together nicely, its a jigsaw in balsa and ply that doesn't need a jig for assembly.
The carbon tail boom is really good too.
The wings will take up most of the assembly time, the main spar alone comprises 21 parts but I'm sure there must be a weight related reason for this.
So, if you have some previous experience of balsa construction then you will probably be very pleased with the kit. Personally, this is my first kit build for 40 years so the wings are a bit of a challenge and I might have been better choosing something a little less complicated and not so lightly built but I will persevere and hopefully it will go together OK despite my lack of recent building experience.
