Review by: Peter Ward
Good quality kit with good wood selection, CNC cutting and very clear and precise CAD drawings. I particularly liked the parts index sketches on the main plan which provide an indication of the shape of the various bits.
Yet to be built so I can't comment on that but so far it all points to a clean and accurate build.
The manual and 'Long Ear' supplement are well illustrated but are in German and even using Google Translate they took a long time to decipher. I had to use a technical German on-line translator for some of the wording as might be expected.
The item was out of stock when I ordered and I was offered notification of stock arrival. This was duly done after about a week and my delivery instructions were met without problems.
First class service from Hyperflight!

This is a top division kit and top division service from Hyperflight. As someone else commented a build sequence manual would be useful though the plans are pretty well self explanatory

Top quality kit, and great service from Neil. Kit was very well packed and survived the journey to New Zealand. Highly recommended.

I just opened the box and the quality of this German kit is amazing. Very happy with the purchase and with Hyperflight.

Great model but could do with a English build manual.
