A marvelous plane. One of the more import things I want to let know everybody. The after sale support by hyperflight.co.uk is great. Especially if some thing goes wrong with the parcel supplier. The parcel delivery was able to crush the really strong box supplied by Hyperflight. Neil solved all problems with the broken plane. I am a happy customer. I will spend more money on this shop. Thank you very much for all your effort.

As with another fellow purchaser of this model, my review is a little premature as I have yet to give the craft it's maiden flight.
Have spent all the bad weather period in February acquiring all new kit to fit out this extremely precise and well made machine.
The much awaited delivery was very well packaged and protected. An art-form in itself.
I feel sure that as the better weather approaches I too will be very pleased to get into the air.

This review is a little previous as I have not had a chance to fly this beautiful little glider. The model is nicely built and is very light with kevlar and carbon where needed. It comes almost ready to go. It's looks.... the Ferrari of the species!! Just stunning.
Just a little work and install the electrics. I enjoy soaring in marginal to moderate winds with a little aerobatics thrown in. Neil @ Hyperflight was exceptionally helpful in my model selection and I can see this is my ultimate dream glider for my flying.
I look forward to adding its flight characteristics soon. I am certain it will put a grin of my face!!!!!
