Review by: ChrisFantastic Plane, first flight
Purchased this plane with Powerline Turbo 1010, YGE-35LVT and having just flown it off a slope can't tell you how impressed I am with both ballast and without. The flaps and control and landing is incredible, the rudder control is awesome. It is incredibly sensitive to camber / reflex changes. All in all very very pleased. With the motor it goes vertical with a 850mah and the telemetry from the esc is just what i wanted. Will be interested how it thermals but off a slope it worked wonders.

As always great service, a beautifully packed box and a perfect model which emerged. The Sprite is Vladimir's usual impeccable finish and fit. The only negative is that although there is good information on control surface settings, there is little advice or guidance on the best ways of getting them there through the fitting of servos, linkages etc. I fly these models for fun, not competition, and therefore I am not as up-to-speed as others may be on the best way of doing everything. These are such beautiful models that I really don't want to make a mistake and curse myself afterwards. Some guidance, however brief, would be welcome!

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!!!!!
