I will be buying a third.
Review by: AdrianGood quality and smart
I like to have my models protected against general knocks for carriage and storage. The 125cm bag is very smart and nicely made and befits any model that is one’s pride and joy - it certainly adds to the feel-good factor! It has a sturdy long-lasting feel and smooth operating zips. The internal dividers have a light-weight soft-foam padding material. It all feels very secure and I am happy with my choice.
Do check your model size against the internal dimensions of these bags - my own electric glider model is quite a tight fit in length because the inside length of the bag is less than the external size and my fuselage+rudder is just on 125cm. The product specifications in fairness do state external 125cm and internal 122cm. I would say, if your longest item is 125cm, consider the next bag-size up.

Great glider bag and Excellent service as usual from hyperflight
Review by: John Clarke
I bought this for my Inside F5J. The extra length suits this model well with its wingtips, polyhedral and glued in joiner rod.
The bag is very well made, looks great and is well worth the price. I am so glad that I bought this bag rather than making my own from bubblewrap!
Review by: IM
Ideal for my Blaster 2, fuselage with fin just fits inside , these bags are high quality & worth every penny , I have larger version for my Circle dancer 3000 , only criticism I found is that they need too be made ridged by adding very stiff cardboard to the back section inside , excellent service as usual from Neil at Hyperflight,

Just the job for my new Graphite 2 electric model instead of a home brew carry/protection bag, and quick service.

Review by: Pete Watson125cm Glider Bag
After splashing out on a 2m all molded glider I began to look for a good carry/storage bag. I had seen bags at our club field that were well priced. However the quality looked like the bag would not last long and the dividers would not give adequate protection to the components within. The Fuselage was also fully exposed on the outside of the bag all but for 1/10th of the fuselage that sat in a pocket that is far too big for my model.
I decided to look on the Hyperflight web site and found an extensive range of bags covering all sizes of models possible. The price seemed a little high at the time of looking but the bag fitted the bill perfectly and I ordered a 125cm glider bag. The bag arrived within 36 hours which I felt was excellent service.
First impressions were very positive and I could soon see why the bags were slightly higher priced then others on the market. The quality of the bag is excellent.
The outer material is a good strong quality material which is well-padded offering good protection to the models components within. The full length zip is substantial and allows easy access into the bag. On the outside of the bag there is a loop for hanging the bag and a convenient carry handle.
The outer fuselage pocket runs full length of the bag leaving only the fin exposed. The bottom end of this packet has a zip for access in case the pod would come of the fuselage in the pocket.
Inside the bag there are 2 well-padded inner dividers to create independent storage space for two wing panels. There are three pockets on the inside of the bag for housing elevators spars etc, one pocket runs 50% of the length of the bag and the other two are split equally over the remaining 50% of the bag. All three pockets give adequate storage space for the gliders components.
My only negative of the bag is with these pockets. The pockets are held closed with Velcro, however the Velcro fastener is only around 2cm long. After a recent flying session I wanted to give my model a check over, whilst the bag was hanging on the wall I opened the main zip to remove a wing panel for inspection when elevator half fell from one of the side pockets. I would have liked the Velcro to have been longer on the pocket openings to prevent items falling out while the bag is hung.
Is it worth the money? Will it protect models for years to come? Would I recommend this product? Most definitely yes.
Review by: JRH125 cm (49") Glider Bag
This bag Is worth every penny if you want to protect your precious gliders. Ample space and protection, I would only add that to make them even better a shoulder strap would help. I am 5' 11" and the bag can get a bit wayward in the wind.
Review by: John YatesNeed some protection for your pride and joy?
I am not new to these superb quality glider bags having bought one quite a while ago for my mini graphite, so when I recently bought Libelle, I already knew that these bags are just the job.
I do have just one criticism though, it would be nice to have a suitable lightweight stiffener available for the more delicate wings like Libelle, as the bag can hint at a false sense of security which is not such an issue with the stiffer fully glassed/carbon wings of the more expensive gliders.
Now as for HyperFlight's service, exemplary as ever, thank you.
Review by: AnonymousHyper service
Bag ordered 14.30 arrived next day at 10.30. Very high quality bag, makes traveling to slope so much easier. I ordered a size bigger so the fuse can go inside for travel and storage as the fin overhangs the bag when using the outside pocket. Only problem is the bag makes my models look a bit tatty, um, Dear Santa...
Review by: AnonymousGlider bag
Great bag, good secure storage for wings an fus, however most slope nutters take more than one model, would be nice to see this bag with two fus pockets an one more divider inside, and a shoulder strap. Overall thou a good buy.
Review by: Chef_bikesIt's good....
I bought one of these. The first thing to mention is the delivery - it arrived next day!
As for the bag, it was better than I expected - there are actually three compartments inside, it's made from sturdy fabric, has good padding and a series of pockets to keep bits 'n bobs in too. It has a tag on the back too so it can be hung on a coat hook.
On the down side, the fuse tube on the outside is a bit on the tight side and it would really benefit from having some sown in loops so you could add a shoulder strap.
Overall, a great bit of kit. I haven't regretted buying mine!

I brought this expecting it to be good and was blown away
by how good it was. Excellent padding for the wings and
handy external compartment for fuselage.
Review by: RGPukA Bag For My First Moulded Glider
Well, this is a review AND comment. A review of the Glider Bag - plus a comment about the service I received from Hyperflight.
I bought the bag for my new Luna 2. The bag is EXCELLENT! In fact far better than I thought it would be, as it's description only mentions one divider and two compartments, whereas it has TWO dividers and therefore THREE compartments, able to INTERNALLY house my wings AND fuselage (with the all-moving elevators removed). The outer housing, although perfect for the fuz with tail feathers intact, will be great for my umbrella!
The construction is damn sturdy, has excellent padding and is really well finished, perfect for next week's lugging around the mountains in Skye.
One slight disappointment - my bag doesn't have the groovy Vladimir's Models logo. No big deal though.
Hyperflight's info on the phone and delivery service was ace!
Next-day delivery. All round brilliant stuff.
