The Spin Mini DLG is a new molded 1m discus launched glider from Vladimir's Models. The Spin is supplied with Spin Wing Bags. The Spin is a great intro to DLGs and is probably the easiest aileron DLG to get airborne. In addition to a very quick and easy build the model excels in the air, with a high launch, a good glide angle, and brilliant manoeuvrability allowing it to be flown and aerobatted, from the smallest flying site.

The Spin's wing is a fabulously light all molded carbon fibre miracle of construction. Despite its excellent ultra smooth finish and extreme stiffness it only weighs 54 g, just 2 g more than the Elf's film covered wing. The great finish and low drag section provide a great all round performance improvement. The ailerons/flapperons allow better control and camber adjustments vastly improve the speed range. The specified aileron servos fit in a beautifully engineered pocket in the root underside of the wing.

The Spin's pod and boom fuselage is uses attractive plastic moldings for the pod and removable nosecone. These are an excellent fit and follow the wing underside contour for a gap free fit. The tailboom is a tapered wrapped carbon tube with a pre-cut slot for the fin, and has a flattened front section for mounting the R/C equipment. The fin is made from rigid foam with carbon spars and has smooth vac-bagged glass covering, and incorporates the rudder with a very free living hinge. The foam/carbon/glass tailplane has a separate elevator and is mounted above the boom using a tiny standoffs to minimise interference drag. All pushrods and control horns are included.

The model comes with a complete accessory pack and servo trays designed for Ripmax SD100, Dymond D47, Hepf H47, KST X06, Blue Bird 101DMG or Blue Bird 101HV servos. We do not recommend different servos are fitted. An instruction manual is not available but there is some useful info here. Please don't try to order direct from VM, they will refer you back to us. The model comes with a complete accessory pack including even special extension leads for the wing servos.

The wing bags are supplied with the model and included in the price shown. Note the colour option images are indicative only and may not be identical to the actual model supplied.

Easy to build

Very well packaged, thank's to Hyperflight.
Easy to assemble and very fast, it comes very well prepared to install the servos.
The plane flies very well, turns very closed and you can catch the thermals easily.
It is easy to repair and very fun to fly
