Description

The Stiletto Hot is a nicely designed and superbly constructed 1.2 m all molded slope soarer / discus launched glider. It has a wing with less dihedral than the Lift version, making it better when flying at speed and improving its aerobatic performance. It is a very convenient size - large enough to give nearly the same performance as a 1.5m (60") model but able to be transported and stored more easily.

The Stiletto Hot has a goods speed range, is easy to fly, and has excellent performance or its size. It can be tip thrown like all DLGs or even bungee launched. It is equally happy on a slope as on the flat.

The fuselage is a generous carbon molding with as good sized hatch for easy installation of the RC. It is recommended that all four servos are installed in the pod, to eliminate the need for noseweight. The fuselage is a one piece design

The flying surfaces are all solid core molded, with workmanship of the highest standard. The fin is glass over foam, with carbon reinforcements. The fin incorporates a tubular front part, to mate with the fuselage tailboom, for easy and accurate construction. The tailplane (horizontal stabiliser) is of similar construction to the fin, and is mounted on a short pylon above the tailboom. The wing especially is wonderfully made, with a high gloss finish and attractive very visible colour schemes. The supplied accessories include a throwing blade, all control horns, and pushrods.

The model is made with two wing layups Carbon Dbox, and all Spread Carbon. The all spread carbon wing costs 15% more and is lighter and more rigid - and looks a lot sexier! Some of the photos show the Stiletto Lift - the Stiletto Hot is identical except for reduced wing dihedral.

Although a ballast system is not included space under the wing is vacant and will a little ingenuity substantial lead could be mounted to incease the flying speed and wind speed range the model can cope with.

Stiletto Hot Pre-Build Review

Stiletto Hot Pre-Build Review
I was delighted opening the Stiletto Hot box to find everything well protected and the full carbon wings look just fantastic. Very nice finish and all the bits fit together perfectly.
I have been hankering for a light DLG to fly off the slope when everyone else is moaning the lack of wind since my 1m Mini TopSky suffered a mid-air with a RCRCM Typhoon at some speed. The Typhoon was unmarked!
The carbon fuselage has a hexagon (6 sided) section, wider than it’s tall in front of the wing (40mm x 30mm), tapering to closer to square (10mm x 8mm) at the tail. This gives a nice flat section under the canopy of about 27mm x 110mm to install the servos.
The assembly guide show BMS21HV servos mounted on their side, which seem to be excessive for what I am after at 15g each. Neil sent me 4 x BMS-101HV (less than 5g each) and they can be mounted standing up and screwed down to a standard ply mounting board side by side 2x2. These BMS-101 servos are only 21mm tall overall including the arm. I am very pleased by the lack of gear noise and slop.
The other advantage of the hexagon section is the elevator / rudder snakes have a natural channel down the inside of the fuselage to follow when they are glued in.
The Stiletto assemble instructions show the tail post fixed to the fuselage, whereas the design has changed, for the better, to have it separate (see the Boom assembly guide https://www.jimaero.com/customer-service). This means you can make the push rod Z bends and then finally glue the post to the fuselage to end up with a perfect neutral.
I plan to install the FrSky Rx under the wing so the antenna exit behind the wing TE away from as much carbon as possible. A trail CofG balance with the main components taped together suggests I can get 650mA 2S LiPo up front which will last for days.
I am enjoying having that ‘new toy’ feeling so much, and the good flying weather, I seem to be putting off making a start. I have every expectation it will come together easily and fly great to keep out of the path of speedy Typhoons.
