Review by: Charles Caswellspinthing
The build materials are excellent, the build was straight forward but it was all in German so it was of no help. Over all I was very disappointed in this kit. While it makes a pretty little dlg glider it does not fly well at all. It was over priced for something that flies this poorly. If you are going to produce a glider it should at least fly well otherwise what is the point. 2 stars only because of the quality of the materials.

Great value kit. A really good route, albeit self build, to get into DLG without spending a premium. The kiy parts are of high quality as are the plans. As usual great packaging from Neil. Merry Chrimbo.
Review by: Jean DoraisGreat buy!!!
Received from Neil in 4 days (to Canada!) in box-in-a-box packaging- absolutely no damage.
The model goes together very quickly, but be prepared to sand the wing to proper shape. The included wing sanding tool was cool, but it was just easier to use a sanding block- your mileage may vary. I did use the tool to verify the wing profile , just not for sanding.
Also be prepared for absolutely no instructions being included- if this is your first kit, it might be a little difficult, otherwise it goes together very quickly. The links that Neil posted are very helpful. The full-size plans are great and include the 3 wing options.
I've just completed the kit (120cm version) but have not flown it yet- the weather has been dreadful in Ottawa. I will update with a flight report when able.
I don't think you can go wrong with this kit- great value for your money!
