I received this plane last autumn but, for various reasons, I've only just got round to building and flying.
I'm a re-entrant to rc flying and thermal gliders has always been my main interest. DLG is completely new to me so I did plenty of research before I settled on a Strike 3.
The model was received quickly, perfectly packed and the build quality lived up to others reviews.
I really took my time but there's plenty of info available online even though there's no instructions with it. Neil was quite happy to give advice on a little problem I had.
I fitted it with Bluebird 101 DMG servos, 1s 600mah lipo and MPX 5ch uncased rx.
There was the perfect amount of room for everything to fit. With the 600mah acc I had to add a bit of tailweight to get the cg at 57mm but it's come out at 129gms, bit heavier than I wanted but still an acceptable wing loading.
Today I gave it, and me, the first workout and I've still got a big smile on my face. I'm knocking on a bit so my launches were only to a modest 50-60ft so far but I still managed to get a couple of areas of lift that spun the flights out. As my confidence grew then I was able to get a consistent height and, eventually, I contacted a good thermal and up it went like a homesick Angel.
It is a very agile glider and I know it exceeds my abilities but I'm so glad I went for it because it flies beautifully. Full flap, combi-switch, thermal, speed, snapflap and cruise, it's still perfectly manageable.
Thanks to Strike 3 I'm definitely addicted to DLG.

Very nicely build mode. Excellent service from Neil and company. Had some shipping time limitations which Hyperflight met for me.

This is a magnificent DLG. Quality and performance are ahead of strike 2 (which was already great).
It does launch higher than the strike 2, and it floats more.

The quality of the strike 3 is amazing 😀
