The Vladimir's Models Sprite Hot Electric is a 2m very efficient fully molded e-glider for thermal and aerobatics. The advanced design by Dr Mark Drela makes it a competitive 2m thermal soarer while the low drag, low dihedral and large controls make it a great hot dog plane too.

The Hot version has 2 degrees of dihedral, making it especially suitable for aerobatics and thermalling in windier, more turbulent conditions. The AG40/41/42/43 section hollow molded wings have carbon spars and large ailerons and flaps, extending the speed range at the low and high speed ends of the polar.

The attractive Kevlar fuselage and removable carbon canopy hatch are highly streamlined producing an extremely low drag and sleek pod. The molded-in wing pylon reduces interference drag and the long high modulus carbon tail boom and conventional cruciform tail ensure excellent handling. The molded tail assembly holds the superbly engineered all flying tail mount. The model is easily transported with its two-piece wings and removable tail.

In addition to the exceptional design the other outstanding characteristic of the Sprite is the very, very, very complete build done at the factory, with the following items already fitted to perfection: canopy, tailboom, tailplane mount. The only work required is gluing the fin and fitting the RC and motor.

These are available in glass or spread carbon layup. The delivery received included some lovely spread carbon Sprite Hot-e models. These are very strong and very light.

A marvelous plane. One of the more import things I want to let know everybody. The after sale support by 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.

Sprite Hot Electric

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!!!!!
