Pulsar Pro 4e  Compact
 Excellent Model and Prompt Service
Review by John on 17 Oct 2018

The 4m Pulsar arrived today. What a beautiful model. Everything is perfect on this model. I like the carbon D-Box better than the Kevlar/carbon as it is smoother.
Makes my other Pulsars look a bit faded, but that's fine as I have six years on one and 8 years on the other. Expect to get the same service from the 4m Pulsar.
Many thanks,

Hawk / Light Hawk 1m DLG
 Hawk DLG
Review by Philippe on 16 Oct 2018

The shipment was very fast (even on French Post side !!!). The packaging seems to be able to resist severe events. All the hardware inside was in perfect condition. The assembly of the Hawk is in progress, it is definitely not for a beginner. Lot of help to be found in the links proposed by Hyperflight. A building manual would however be welcome, even a very simple one.

AndREaS Elektro RES
Review by Ken on 16 Oct 2018

Re Andreas:

I have built fuse & tail feathers. & 1 wing panel.
Most of my building in the past has been scratch building from plans- very time consuming.
The Andreas kit is a pleasure to build. The laser cutting & the interlocking parts make the process so easy.
In contrast to another reviewer's experience my kit is very accurately cut & parts do match the plans.

I am wary re fitting magnets to both fuse & inner wing panels. The magnets are super strong & separating wings and fuse may be difficult without damaging wing.
Maybe thin steel discs in wing panels will be quite adequate.

I am making this model for a flying class in NSW , Australia- which allows only 2 control functions.

So - I will not be fitting the spoilers.

Span is limited to 2 m. & motor output to 180 W ( matches a Radian).


Sydney, Australia.

Tango F5J
 another great kit by CAD2CNC
Review by bruce on 14 Oct 2018

This is a high quality kit, especially the CF tubes employed. building the Tango was as much fun as flying it. If you have built the Samba (my favorite 2M RES), you will be familiar with the building techniques used for this bird. Instructions are in German and the Plans are not fully self explanatory. Flight characteristics are quite pleasant---very wide speed range, hard to stall with easy recovery. Highly recommend, but would use the most powerful motor that will fit in the space, i used an AXi 550 2220/20 with 14x7 GM props, which is just barely adequate .

Blue Bird BMS-101HV Servo - 0.06s 4.5g 7.6mm
 Reliable servo.
Review by Mark on 13 Oct 2018

Have used these servos for over 2 years. They are great. I’ve used them in 1m and 1.5m scratch built DLG’s on all control surfaces. Also used them on 1.3-1.5m eRES. Reliable, good centering, precise and with ample torque. Light and small with high voltage capability. Would be a good addition if Blue Bird decided to manufacture an all metal gear, high voltage 101. ???

 Thermal hunter
Review by Richard Edmunds on 5 Oct 2018

Bought to replace very old rudder/elevator model. Superb quality materials and beautifully laser cut. Very simple and quick build but enjoyable nonetheless. Decided to go for the removable tail to minimise transport damage. When I came to fit the fin, I realised that with two nylon bolts straight through the fuselage and fin I could modify to make the fin removable as well. Just about to start the wing construction and am considering whether the outer panels could be made in two halves as lightweight wings with dihedral are always tricky to transport. Planning to fit Corona DS843MG servos. Can’t wait to get it in the air

Integrated Drive System/Mono for the KST X10 and X10 Mini
Review by Peter Gunning on 2 Oct 2018

A really well thought out system. The two piece horn going into the control surface works well and the two little tags help to ensure that the horn is glued to the top surface and each one sits on the same line relative to the hinge. It took a while to get the first one fettled correctly but the following 3 were easy once the system was understood.

Dream-Flight Ahi
 Quality Model
Review by Pete on 1 Oct 2018

I have yet to fly my Ahi as I am still setting it up. I am a slow precise builder/assembler and have just completed increasing the depth of the wing servo cut-outs to suit the servos I decided to use, adjusting the length of the servo leads, and enlarging the cut-outs in the servo tray.
I will be adding a small carbon rod to the leading edges and also to the tail skid.
I am impressed with the quality of the finish and design. It all fits together very well. I am looking forward to taking the Ahi to the slope where I am sure it will perform perfectly.

Review by Brian Rivas on 16 Sep 2018

Like many others, I was attracted by the very thin solid balsa wing and found the MadRES a straightforward and satisfying build. The quality and fit of all the parts was generally excellent.

I decided to build the wing as one piece rather than having detachable tips, and I reinforced all the joins with strips of thin carbon cloth. Apart from the tail feathers, which I covered in transparent Oracover, I went for a completely natural finish and gave the wings and fuselage two thin coats of Epifanes clear high gloss varnish. The model is waterproof and looks good.

First flight off the hi-start was made in worryingly gusty conditions. My head said don't do it, my heart said go on, so I did. I was surprised and pleased with how it handled this far-from-ideal weather, the rudder response being instant. However, the rudder fluttered like a flag in a gale during the launch, and I wondered whether a larger control horn would work better with the pull-spring system, as the ones with the kit are very small. As I had a spare Snipe elevator horn, I fitted that instead. I would recommend considering a larger rudder horn on the MadRES, as it not only eliminated the flutter but gave a smoother response.

Subsequent flights have shown this glider to be a great performer, capable of very tight circling in a thermal and responding instantly to the slightest bit of lift. It also has a good turn of speed when needed and the spoiler is effective. Very satisfying. Love it!

Vladimir's Models Blaster Wing Bags
 Keep your wings in perfect condition
Review by NickP on 15 Sep 2018

These wing bags are great value and will keep your wings and horizontal tail free from incidental knocks and bumps. Not being a rigid box the wing bags will not prevent crushing or puncture damage if you don’t take reasonable care but they will keep minor scratches and dings away from those fragile wings. I really like the Velcro fastening and natty idea of having the horizontal all-flying stabiliser in with the wings in its own little sleeve.

 X-RES RES Sailplane
Review by John Witteman on 3 Sep 2018

The materials for this kit are all of excellent quality and are CNC cut. Only problem I have is that even the English translation is of poor writing and should have much more time put into the instructions with pictures. It has taken much time to go online at RCGroups to see where others have showed their build so that I did not make any mistakes. The actual plans are of excellent quality, but are small sheets of paper that have to be matched up to each other with the help of cross marks at the top and bottom of each sheet so as to keep everything in line. This works very well and keeps the plans small so as to be shipped without being rolled up. The plans have all German words for the parts and sizes of each, which would have been nice to have it in English. Overall the build is going great and I anticipate it will be a great flyer.

Frame with bearing for the KST X08 (pair)
Review by CJ Stone on 2 Sep 2018

I have to a to agree with Roger Sanders, a poor design, the jigsaw puzel of bits to mount the ervo took time to sort. A nylon to nylon bearing does not instill confidence. putting these mounts in a £1700 composit glider is like using cheap servos. I will make the best of a bad job as it is the flaps we are dealing with so perhaps not quite so chritcial?

I chose a different servo for the ailerons, no plastic cradle avaliable, so made my own lite ply version of an IDS frame. Just as good, quick to change a servo, even has a removable wing skin/servo torsion bar.

The product is fuctional but poorly conceived trying to cover to many servo designs? That is the only reason I can see for the large amount of redundent parts, a plain plastic bearing is 'cheap'.

Terrific piece of kit that is very accurate and shows the weight of the model and CofG at the same time. Also handy for seeing the effect varying amounts of ballast has on the CofG allowing you to set this up optimally. The cradle on this one is slightly bigger than that found on similar items available elsewhere allowing for slightly larger fuselages to be accomodated easily. Recommended.

Samba RES Evo
Review by STEVE WATTS on 20 Aug 2018

Firstly why did I choose the SAMBA RES EVO, basically I wanted to return to building again and to build something different. I fly slopes mostly on Dartmoor where there are few flat sites to use but on those light lift days needed a lighter model.
The kit arrived very quickly from Hyperflight and was well packaged in two boxes with the parts logically bagged or in a smaller box with strips contained within the full size plan. I did not check the parts initially against the plan which i would recommend, because i found later that a tail plane part was missing. After talking to Neil i decided to make the part myself to speed up the build process, mistakes do happen of course and with the considerable number of parts in the kit involved it is unrealistic to expect Hyperflight to check a kits contents. I would recommend that a download and print off of the guide written by Leonard Mackey is also made as it has proved invaluable throughout the build. I have built in sequence as the guide suggested finding all of the parts to be incredibly accurate and very cleverly designed. I have not previously used CA extensively in kit building but it works really well and certainly quickens the build process. I did find that removing the char burning has to be done really carefully because if done too much results in loose joints. I have taken my time with the build paying particular attention to accuracy and weight of the tailplane structure and fuselage which i have really enjoyed doing. As this is not a competition model i have chosen to cover the pod with lightweight cloth and epoxy (1 coat ) and to install carbon snakes and guides (from Hyperflight). I am very pleased with the result and with just the wings (recently completed) to cover eagerly await its first outing.
Would i build another one or recommend the kit to others? Yes i would this is a quality builders kit which has given many hours of enjoyment in its build phase and i am sure will give hours of flying pleasure in the future.

Stiletto Lift 1.2m DLG
 Good Value, but not the best first build
Review by RayD on 16 Aug 2018

Hyperflight packing was superb. Strongest box I have encountered.
I purchased the Lift spread carbon version, the four Ripmax SD100 servos and the HyperLipo 2S 300 mAh LiPo, to obtain best power from these lightweight servos.
The Stiletto surface finish is great.
The rear wing bolt hole was very slghtly off centre... sorted.
The rudder hinge line needed a bit of sanding to improve the movement available.
Instructions are limited to a series of small photos, which seemed aimed at an experienced DLG builder. Next to nothing about building this model elsewhere. Only after finishing did I discover a review in French has a speed build in the second half of the YouTube view. This gives an idea for a servo frame, but then uses spring pulls on the rudder and elevator, rather than the 0.3mm inner steel rods supplied. I tried installing the supplied rudder cable with magnets, as per the official photos. This will work, if you first position the front end of the cable, where you intend it to connect to the servo arm. Having glued mine firmly to the fuselage wall all the way into the pod, the rod would not bend away from the wall enough for a friction free connection to a servo. With hindsight I'd also use the spring pull for the rudder and elevator.
My final build used carbon rods secured only at each end for these. This seems to be working.
I have had five flying sessions so far, with highest launch only 61 feet, so some learning involved to achieve the reported heights.
As a first carbon fibre DLG, I found the response of the flaps to be incredible. In a light breeze, one can bring the ground speed to zero and drop it the last few inches for a grass landing.
I am really enjoying flying the Stiletto.

Great tubing, works well as the sheath for pushrods, attached with thin CA and magnets inside long fuselages (do not forget to purchase a 0.8mm steel wire also to use for magnets during gluing). Used with the 1.0mm carbon rods, makes awesome light pushrods for light 4m F5J planes.
Neil's service is second to none. Shipped on the same day (Friday, late afternoon!) and Royal Mail dispatched it to the USA within a couple days. Amazing that you can get a shipment from UK to the USA for not a lot more money and time than within the USA.

Great rods and not easy to find in longer lengths (1.5m). When used with the 1.34mm teflon tubing, makes awesome light pushrods for light 4m F5J planes.
Neil's service is second to none. Shipped on the same day (Friday, late afternoon!) and Royal Mail dispatched it to the USA within a couple days. Amazing that you can get a shipment from UK to the USA for not a lot more money and time than within the USA.

Blue Bird BMS-105HV Servo - 0.09s 10.9g 10mm
 Very good at first, very bad at the end
Review by Rafael Jiménez on 13 Aug 2018

I purchased 7 of these servos here at Hyperflight and installed six of them in my new home-made F5J-FAI glider. I was really satisfied with them at first and thought they were a very good alternative to the more expensive 6100. The servos worked really nice for 8-10 months (4-6 flights per week) but one by one, they began to show
centering failure and became completely useless in a few weeks. It seems that the potentiometers get ruined with time. Finally, I had to substitute all of them. I understand that most of the reviews posted here are very possitive, as the servos work perfect initially, but it would be nice if the same reviewers share their opinions again after several months of use.

HyperFlight 1/1.7 Pushrod Set
Review by RayD on 12 Aug 2018

Light, rigid and nicely friction free, but keep checking during the install, as very little cable bend required to start binding. Need good long slots in the fuselage exit point.

Exact length wire fittings for rudder and elevator are tricky, so I replaced some 0.3mm wire cables in a DLG kit with these, so I could add end fittings and adjust the length. As not much end space for the standard fittings, I bent a couple of short pieces of wire and whipped to the side of the rod end with fine sewing thread. Slid the wire for exact length then thread soaked in superglue.

Dream-Flight Libelle Sticker Set
Review by RayD on 12 Aug 2018

Certainly stiffens and protect the wing. Improving launch height? I'm not sure, there should be reduced friction.
Note there are holes for the wing servos, so there is a top and bottom pair.

Intek MT-3030 Vario Receiver
 Intel MT3030 vario receiver
Review by Brian S on 12 Aug 2018

Bought to work with my SkyAssistant vario, as a direct replacement for my previous receiver which had died. It is fairly easy to programme and use and the ear bud is quite comfortable but even the lowest volume setting is a bit too loud.

Ripmax SD100 Servo - 8.1mm 4.7g
Review by RayD on 9 Aug 2018

Fitted four in my Stiletto Lift.
Impressive quiet servo with no buzz, when new control surfaces are a little stiff, so should suit spring return rudder/elevator use.
Worth buying a spare set of gears and making servos removable for DLG aileron+flap use, as nylon gears.
Telemetry buzz is just possible with the new Frsky longer range receivers like G-RX6, but fine for most aerial positions.

 Hitec alternative
Review by Elliot on 8 Aug 2018

Half the price of the carbonite hitec equivalent, this is a great little metal geared servo, in the tail of my funray they fit perfectly, well pleased.
