Review by K.Preston on 5 Aug 2020

This is a fabulous little motor/gearbox combo. Super smooth operation, relatively light weight, and excellent value. This is perfect for retrofitting a narrow nose glider to electric power. Shipping to USA from Hyperflight was hyper-fast. All around great.

1.5mm Carbon Rod
 
Review by Gavin on 3 Aug 2020

First time I've used Hyperflight, a good price once you buy enough to make the p&p sensible. So I ordered 1.5m lengths and I had some 1mm rod as well. Arrived rolled up in a "pizza box" (and well warned on the package!). Quality is excellent and interesting that it's epoxy bonded not the polyester bond of most putruded rod. All round very satisfied and sure to use Hyperflight again.

Review by Richard Edmunds on 3 Aug 2020

Bought two of these to replace MKS 6125s, one of which had a potentiometer failure. I changed over to KSTs years ago, and have never had problems with them ( unlike the vastly overrated MKSs). Delivery was the following day.

 Servo Frames
Review by Richard Edmunds on 3 Aug 2020

I have bought these frames before and they a big advance over gluing servos in place and then trying to prise them out if a gear fails. The latest version does not seem quite such good quality - in particular softer screws which you have to be careful not to ruin the heads. Also the plastic is very hard whereas the yellow versions were a good compromise avoiding the screw issue. Overall though, still a good buy. Neil's service is just brilliant.

Beautifully designed and constructed. Flying weight 111g with no ballast required, FrSKy Rx, Blue Bird Servos and the Radient 400mAh LiPo. (Carbon version.) cg 55mm. It is all a tight fit that needs planning, but it can be made to work.

Ordered at 14:30 hrs and received them first thing the next day. Thanks Neil for your excellent service.


Dream-Flight Alula-Trek 90cm
 Dream-Flight Alula-Trek 90cm
Review by Michael on 1 Aug 2020

Service from Hyperflight very good.
Dream-Flight Alula-Trek: canopy magnet dropped out and had to be re-glued. The Dreamflight battery pack didn't fit on my plane without removal of some polystyrene from the fuselage and the canopy. A small piece of lead was required in front of the battery to achieve recommended C of G. However, initial flights quite promising and I think the model could be deceptively robust.

Review by masaharu Tsuchiy on 31 Jul 2020

Installed as a tail servo for INFINITY Evo. At first, I was thinking of the MKS HV6110, but I installed it on a trial basis because it can be purchased at a low price with the same or better specifications, but I am fully satisfied. I will continue to use it as long as I continue to fly and it is durable and reliable.

VM Composite Model Repair Kit

A must for any modeller not just useful for composite gliders, already used it to repair a ply battery tray in my Acromaster Pro. Would be perfect if they could get price under £30.


Dream-Flight Alula-Trek 90cm
 
Review by Jim Newberry on 28 Jul 2020

Usual excellent service from Hyperflight, within minutes of asking for a recommended glider and all necessary parts to take away for a last minute trip away, Neil had put together a bundle including the Alula Trek, servos and battery. The glider went together very easily - the instructions are the clearest and simplest I have ever seen and the glider was ready in no time. Trimming takes a little time as, being a small flying wing, it is sensitive to even the tiniest change, but once sorted the performance is excellent. I have now flown it in a range of wind strengths and it never disappoints. Highly recommended.

14mm OD 12mm ID Wound Carbon Tube
 
Review by Ricky on 22 Jul 2020

I've used the 14mm carbon fibre tube for a tail boom in a 2.5 metre glider and I'm very happy with the result. It's more than stiff enough for the job and the high gloss finish looks great. It arrived promptly well packed and although it is 750mm long I didn't have to pay any extra postage.
Another satisfied customer.

2.4Ghz Antenna Supports - Guides (2) - Special Offer
 2.4 Ghz antenna supports
Review by Tony Butterworth on 21 Jul 2020

Fitting 2.4 Ghz receivers into slim fuselages always poses the problem of supporting receiver antennas in the correct orientation for max reception. My instance involved my Mini graphite with receiver placed within the fuselarge behind the wing . I purchased these Antenna supports and have to say they made the job very easy . I drilled a suitably large hole in fuselage side and then sanded the base of of the antenna supports to provide correct antenna orientation . The antenna supports were then glued directly to the fuselage side covering the hole ( (using cyan re-inforced with epoxy fillet ) , job done. I also found it very easy to thread the antenna into these antenna guides from inside the fuse making receiver installation easy to complete . They looked professional once in place also . Would also like to say have been dealing with Hyperflight for many years now and have always received excellent service - no need to shop elsewhere in my book .

Shinto F3F Racer Glider 3m
 Shinto
Review by Steve Hart on 19 Jul 2020

I have been looking at this model for sometime now, well over 3 years. The time had come, along with price drop and the added extra's.
I have just finishing installing the radio gear into the Shinto, the aileron servos were difficult to fit due the lack of room to push the servo onto the LDS horn, but managed to succeed.
The quality of the model is unbelievable, paint lines are very crisp along with moulding lines with those funky colours.
Just can't wait to fly the model next week.

Dream-Flight Alula-Trek 90cm
 HOT
Review by Gerasimos on 13 Jul 2020

I have followed the manual and all worked fine! 3mm for the elevator and 10mm for the ailerons with 70% exponential. High Rates are too high for me. CG was easy to set. added around 15gr on the nose. Servos require glue cause the provided stickers are not safe enough.
Both elevons arrived a bit bended but with some hand pressure I put them back to position
Tail requires tape as after the first flight I found it loose and shifted back by 5mm

I had first flight on a 10m height sand dune with 18knots wind without a test flight and I prayed not to crash it! But surprisingly it just needed some up elevator and all went smooth

Delivered super fast by Hyperflight, so great service!

Very happy with this plane looking forward to try side-arm launch and catch a thermal


Falcon 1.5m DLG
 Excellent DLG
Review by Andrew on 12 Jul 2020

A quick and safe arrival to Australia, my thanks to Neil Stainton, the quality of this kit is very impressive. I know there is not much to build but as I've not assembled a DLG before (or anything else for a very long time) I read RC Groups Falcon thread which was very helpful and I took my time and overall I'm very pleased with the result. Only a couple of flights so far but so rewarding, it adds another dimension to nearly 40 years of my RC glider experiences!

Auri 1.5m DLG
 Auri DLG
Review by R Holmes on 9 Jul 2020

I bought the Auri in early June and it arrived in California approximately 7 days later in large cardboard box. The build quality is excellent and the surface finish is extremely smooth. Assembly was straightforward with the help of online videos and threads. I completed the build start to finish in one 8 hour block of time. The plane thermals really well on calm days and is a capable ridge soaring plane on windy days. Im using a spektrum receiver with an internal antenna and I haven't had any issues with signal loss through the pod.

As usual from Hyperflight, good service and quick delivery. I pre ordered the Samba and was quickly informed of the estimated delivery date. It arrived on that date, in the usual bomb proof packaging from Hyperflight. Kit looks great, parts separately backed and taped to board to protect longer parts. I have been through the kit and identified all the parts. Full set of plans included. Instructions are in German, but the Hyperflight website has a download of some excellent English instructions from Pikes Peak Soaring, there are some great build logs on the web as well.
Looking forward to building.

Elf 1m DLG
 
Review by Philip on 4 Jul 2020

Super fun small DLG! As has been said in many other reviews, service, packaging, and delivery time are superb. Having recently moved to Germany from Southern California and I was in need of something fun to fly at the nearby sloping pasture. I'm happy with the Elf. It can take some breeze, but not too much if the air becomes turbulent (although i think it's fun because of the Elf's maneuverability!). I've been flying RC sailplanes for about 40 years now (Slope and Thermal...mostly Slope) and can recommend the Elf to anyone looking for an easy to transport, great flying, affordable (comparatively speaking for what you get) and good looking DLG. Build quality is super and assembly is very straightforward. Glad I chose the Elf. Like George says (recent review)..."Everybody should have one"!...

150 mAh 4.8V NiMH Battery
 Elf Battery
Review by Stephen Hill on 3 Jul 2020

Following the instructions on charging this battery with direct 12v dc with a resistor to drop it down to 15mh I got about 5 minutes of radio time. So I swapped over to a 1 cell Lipo which also only gave about 5 minutes on my Lemon rx. The lemon rx should run on 3.45v so not sure what happened. Anyway I have got it solved by adding a 3.7v to 5v booster to my Lipo. May be my rx is more volts hungry than it should be but a 1 cell and voltage booster might be a better bet for the Elf. Sorry to be negative but there is no point in reviews if they are not honest.

Excellent service from hyperflight. 1st time I had purchased and I must say I was impressed. Items were dispatched very quickly and were very well boxed.

I will definitely be using hyperflight services again, kepp up the great work guys, thank you.

Total weight RTF...............................................................................1532g + 70g ballast

But CG was in my case 127 mm behind LE and it was to much for me. I had to adjust the CG to 115 mm behind the LE wing using about 70 g of lead in front of the fuselage.

Alteration against kit:
Rudder fastening -
In original design rudder steven has not secure fastening on the fuselage. For fix it steven CFK pipe has been added by an Alu insert with M3 thread at the lower end.This Alu insert ( 10mm lenght, 5mm diam.) was glued to CFK pipe by epoxy resin.The upper end of the pipe was secure glued to pipe housing in rudder steven.A hole for the M3 screw was drilled from the bottom of the fuselage against the CFK pipe. Now the steven with rudder is secured with an M3 screw 11mm long.

Receiver location -
After a good experience with this solution from AVA Pro glider I again placed the receiver on top of the wing carrier, directly below the center of the wing between the two mounting screws. The receiver is fixed in place with Velcro. I just have to make a small cave from the bottom of the wing (20x50mm in case of Futaba 7006SB receiver). Benefits of this solution :
-All cables from the fuselage (ECS, Vario, Rudder and Ele servo) are permanently connected with their original connectors to the receiver- without the need for any soldering. Before attaching the wing, I must connect only one original Futaba servo connector from the wing to the S-BUS receiver socket. This connector is attached to the SVi cables in the wing and supplies the signal for all 4 servos over only one single wire (S-BUS is awesome).

Elevator throw extension -
Simitri has about 30 mm control "horn" for elevator.With this 30mm control horn I was not able to achieve sufficient deviation of elevator. I didn't want to extremely extend the servo lever for loss of servo power. In order to get a full throw of elevator (both ways) I have to reduce lenght of that horn to approx.20mm. I removed the brass horn from the fuselage and cut off the lower end with link eye. Then I tapped the new end and after that I drilled a new link eye for attach the control rod.

Other work was standard, nothing new, thanks to the equipped LDS rods, the installation of servos in the wings is greatly simplified.

The first flight took place on June 16 and Simitri flies great as I expected.

Superb laser cutting of balsa parts. The build log is a bit long winded in places however most of the build is shown. Ideally I would have prefered instructions and a wing plan rather than have to download and print the A4 sheets to the correct scale and then tape them together.

Much better than other film covering adhesives that I have tried. leaves a slightly tacky surface when dry which holds the film in place before applying heat

The mold quality is low, the model I received has several flaws, too bad because the model deserves a higher quality.

 not as aspected.
Review by Nuno Duarte on 26 Jun 2020

the servo looks strong as expected but makes continuous noise. even at the neutral point. I hope it lasts long enough


Foxtrott 2.7
 Very good kit, but .....
Review by Max on 26 Jun 2020

Perfectly model to build. Unfortunately, the kit only includes an illustrated building manual in German. For model builders who do not speak the German language, the not always easy structure should cause some problems. (I was born in Switzerland and went to school, the German language is not a problem for me.)

I have used these blades before. They are excellent 12 x8 on a hacker A10 7l with a 500mah 3cell only pulling 9 amps very impressive


Yellow Wing Attachment Tape
 Holds well and removes cleanly
Review by Pete on 26 Jun 2020

Using it on joins in a 10" chord bungee launched glider wing covered on doped lightweight Solarfilm Airspan. Holds very well even on hot days and, importantly, removes cleanly when doubled back on itself without harm to the covering. Much better in both regards than the electrical insulating tape I was using before. Will be back for more.

KST MS320 HV Contactless Servo - 6.2Kg.cm 0.07s 21g 12mm
 KST MS-320 - small piece of art.
Review by Adam on 25 Jun 2020

It's really difficult to add something more positive than was written by others modellers.
Simply this servo is fantastic - small piece of art.
I think that contactless technology will be implemented by KST soon to all servos produced by them :-)
Many thanks for quick delivery to France - even when Covid19 stopped all Europe I received my servos in 5 days.
Thank you!
