The Vortex 3 DLG is a superb top level DLG for people who enjoy the best. It has excellent performance but also great handling characteristics that endear it to sports and competition pilots world wide.

The build quality is first rate and the engineering is very impressive. Apart from of course perfectly molded carbon parts the kit comes with a very nicely engineered system for automatic connection of the aileron controls when the wing is attached. This is a different level of convenience and functionality to any other DLG we sell.

Supplied with a complete accessory bag including all the items necessary to complete the model. Two servo trays are included, for KST X08 and MKS DS65K servos. Lots more info in this RCGroups Vortex 3 thread and this Vortex official build thread. We are stocking the two piece wing version (2pw) with a bottom mounted tailplane, in various layups.

Gorgeous DLG, superb build quality and hardwares. Construction is straight forward with all the online resources available.
I have several DLGs and this is my favorite. It's so floaty, retains it's energy in my sloppy turns without loosing altitude. Love this plane!

well worth the wait

having had several DLG models from Hyperflight in the past, I decided to order a Vortex 3 from Neil last September, it arrived the week before Xmas, packaged as always in a really strong box . I wasnt disappointed , super fit & finish all the necessary parts included, Using KST08 servos the build was easy because everything is on top & there is loads of room in the nose, the only criticism I would make is ,the horrid printed plastic servo trays in the kit , they are hard to trim & very brittle, ply would be better & easier to work. all built up with a2s 300 lipo connected to a micro pico switch & 5v ubec & rx all easily fitted in the nose, CG came out at 64 mm back, all up weight of 220 gr, build was made easy by watching Roy Dors excellent vids on youtube. test flew new years day, bit windy ,but all was well, needed 30gr ballast to get enough energy into the model to fly well. . it seems to me that 220gr is too light for all but dead calm days, flys best at around 235 -245 gr .I did purchase the Vortex ballast & wing bags at the same time ,worth doing I believe, quite expensive overall but an excellent very strong glider made to a very high standard , thanks again to Neil at Hyperflight for a first class service.
