Many pilots who took our two axis DLG Spinnin' Birdy with them when travelling the world wished for a DLG that glided as well, but was even better against a stronger wind. Spot landings were also high on the wish list. :-)

OK, so we proudly present you our new "Birdy-Baby", a Spinnin’ Birdy with ailerons. But this is not even the most striking difference to his two axis brother: For the first time, there is a Birdy with a completely sheeted wings. For two reasons: first, it looks impertinently good, and secondly, this construction cannot be beaten for torsional stiffness.

Honestly, without our laser system sheeting would be a pain, but thanks to the precise laser parts - and thin CA with a cannula the planking is a children's game. You'll see!

Since the achievable DLG throwing heights do not really have much to do with the ailerons, every Spinnin 'Birdy has launches about the same. However, as the aileron Birdy is somewhat heavier it is better off against the wind and can search further for a thermal.

Also if you add camber (droop the ailerons 2 mm) the flying speed and sink rate is reduced, allowing faster climbs in a thermal and a longer hang time.

When landing deflect the full span ailerons fully down and you will be amazed how well the model slows down.

You aren’t interested in discus launching? What are you looking for is a great model for a small slope? Then the Aileron Birdy is definitely a hit! Thanks to its take-off weight of about 200 g, the Birdy flies even in mild conditions early in the morning or in the evening. If your buddies have long since given up you can carry on flying because the single cell LiPo will fly it for hours, with approx 60 mAh consumed every hour (average current 60 mA).

Flies very well indeed

Mine came out about 25g overweight mostly I think because I stuffed in a 300mAH nimh & AR620 rx, but despite that the performance seems very good. I spent a decent amount of time on the wing - the full sheeting and careful shaping for an accurate aerofoil pays off I think. Build was straightforward once i'd scanned the manual and uploaded to google translate, but do check which end of your aileron servos the cable exits from, you may consider changing the default cable routing in the wing for a straight run and to avoid awkwardly bunched cables (v tight space) and/or stress on the cable exit from the servo from tight bends. Other than that, it's a super little model.
Brilliant service from hyperflight too.

Spinnin Birdy

Received this small very well packet parcel from Hyperflight, first class kit first class service.
This kit has all balsa lazer cut precise pieces with very little or no sanding to fit.
Still to finish the kit as work tends to get in the way.
Would i buy from Hyperflight again YES
Hyperflight Thank you

as usual, Neil provides a first class service. great communication and excellent packaging. if anyone can help with a build log thread that would be great. this is my first foray into ailerons, having only ever built RE previously

Fantastic service to Melbourne, Australia , thanks hyperflight.
I bought this cuz I have an old Callistic that is still a great plane to fly.....
Researching the build, the manual is in German with the kit, but between photos on the German rc forums and the DS Birdy English manual and very good plans it looks like a straight forward if a little unconventional build, will report back.....
