Review by: Dave WebbAmazing little ship!
Ordered this and had it in hand in just over a week. The larger high performance 1.5m birds were just a little out of my price range so this fit the bill. You definitely need to have a grasp on building models before you attempt to put this one together. The quality of this plane is amazing. The fuselage is designed to be just big enough to hold the required equipment, so be prepared to dry fit everything to make sure you get the layout and CG right. Enough about the technicalities, she flys great. It signals lift very well and has a broad speed range. Time to land just drop the flaperons and she’ll float right into your hand. Would love to get the all carbon version soon.

A super lightwight small DLG in excellent quality. There is limited space in the nose, so it is a good idea to check the RC groups forum for details.

I ordered it on Friday last week and got it on Tuesday. I live in Colorado. Quick shipping and well packed.

Review by: Robert BeswetherickHawk 1 meter
Outstanding craftsmanship, fantastic price. Research it BEFORE buying electronics as there is VERY limited space. 5 Stars.
Review by: PhilippeHawk 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.
Review by: JustinExcellent 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.

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.
Review by: Andreas MuellerLovely 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.
Review by: taanasHawk 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.
