The Hot Shot 2 is a well regarded glass and carbon electric 1.5m DLG with a flying weight of about 370g. The Hot shot is very tough and easy to fly, making it a great F5K trainer. The model uses solid molded DLG construction methods, and a modern Drela airfoil, which keeps it light and gives it excellent performance.

The Hotshot 2 is based on the Longshot DLG with excellent aerodynamics and a nice molded glass / foam / glass wing, with lots of carbon in the right places. The Hotshot’s fuselage is a glass molding with a lightweight rolled carbon tailboom. The R/C is accessed though a handy canopy hatch, and the wings are bolted onto the low pod, keeping the frontal area to a minimum. The pod is supplied with the nosecone in place, and a 32mm firewall is supplied. However a smaller recessed firewall could alternatively be fitted allowing one of our modern lightweight 25mm F5K powertrains to be used. Thus the modeller has total flexibility about motor choices. The tail and fin are lightweight balsa surfaces that will need a little shaping and covering in film. The tailplane is conveniently removable for easy transportation. It is mounted on a prefabricated pylon that is glued to the boom. The Hotshot’s very smooth low drag wing is supplied in two pieces and is easily joined using the supplied carbon reinforcements, and is painted with flashes of colour on the tips. All the linkages are provided, only glue, powertrain and the RC gear needs to be supplied by the builder.

The easy build, benevolent flying characteristics, and tough construction all make the Hotshot an excellent introduction to F5J type electric gliders. See some build photos of the very similar Longshot DLGhere.
