The Hawk and Light Hawk and are great new 1m mini DLGs from Ukraine that fly excellently, especially when considering their very competitive prices. These models launch high and have a good speed range.

The standard Hawk DLG model is supplied with a strong and brightly coloured glass layup wing, which weighs approx 60 g. The Light Hawk DLG version is supplied with a lighter Carboline spread carbon wing weighing 52 g. The SC model especially is exceptionally light, while also being strong and very rigid, allowing high launches. Still air times of 1:30 to 2 minutes can be obtained by strong launchers, and thermal performance and stability is good.

The Light Hawk's fuselage is a one piece (not pod and boom) design of oval cross section, with the front part made from 2.4GHz friendly glass, and the rear from spread carbon. The Hawk version's fuselage is all glass construction. There is an good sized access hatch on the top giving access to the RC installation. The aileron and tail servos are installed in the pod to minimise nose weight and yaw inertia. This does make for a cramped installation, and as only instructions available are various online build logs we don't recommend the Hawk or Light Hawk to inexperienced builders.

The tailplane (horizontal stabiliser) is bolted onto a small pylon molded into the underside of the boom, and the fin (vertical stabiliser) has a perfectly matching hole molded into it, enabling easy mounting onto the end of the tailboom.

The Hawk and Light Hawk wing is solid molded with a glass or spread carbon skin over a CNC cut foam core. The wing has a good surface finish ensuring low drag and longevity. The ailerons are fabricated with a living hinge. The only work required to finish the wings is installing the throwing blade and control horns.

The model is supplied with a very complete accessory pack which includes all control horns, pushrod wires, tail torque springs, tail pull cord, pull cord ferrules, a nice throwing blade and a small glass plate for mounting the servos.

If you have any questions please ask on the RCGroups Hawk 1m DLG from HyperFlight thread. Also see this thread for build info.

Hawk 1 meter

Outstanding craftsmanship, fantastic price. Research it BEFORE buying electronics as there is VERY limited space. 5 Stars.

Hawk DLG

The shipment was very fast (even on French Post side !!!). The packaging seems to be able to resist severe events. All the hardware inside was in perfect condition. The assembly of the Hawk is in progress, it is definitely not for a beginner. Lot of help to be found in the links proposed by Hyperflight. A building manual would however be welcome, even a very simple one.

Excellent DLG

I ordered the glass version as my first DLG and assembly was relatively straightforward. I found that 2/1mm carbon tube and 0.7mm piano wire made much smoother push-rods than those supplied in the kit so probably best to order these items along with the kit. I used 4x BMB-101DMG servos, an FrSky RX4R and 1S 260mah lipo. All up weight around 116g.

She flies very well, I've had a couple of afternoons in the park and several good flights despite my lack of experience.

I've been informed that Hyperflight do have spare parts available which is reassuring to know as the fin/stab are quite delicate.

Fantastic flyer

Great 1m class DLG. Glider flies fast when it needs to, and good energy retention.
Bought the glass (not carbon) version, came in just under 118g with 4 Dymond D47's, Frsky G-RX6 and 2S 240mAh battery. Could shave a couple grams by removing servo connectors and Rx pins, plus switching to carbon should get well under 110g. Fuselage is a little tight so it takes a bit of planning to get everything in right.

Lovely DLG-no spares

Just started building the Hawk enjoying part quality and fitting. For month I have tried to first get some spares e.g. fins, rudder to stock for some potential damages. Sadly this bird seems not supported with spares ...worldwide! Consequently you may have to consider buying a second one which, considering price, may make sense the most.

Hawk miniDLG

I was able to get a thermal immediately after adjustment. As the center of gravity got in front, we are planning to re-adjust the lipo.
I liked the design and bought it, but the quality of painting may be low somewhat.
