Sticky: Flyflyhobby dg808s-build
Awaiting delvery from korea to australia-tracking number confirmed by email-its on its way, via ems speed-post airfreight cargo.estimated eta-3-5 working days,but can take up to 10 days for delivery.ITS ARRIVED CHECK OUT THESE PHOTOS OF THE DG808S JUST UNPACKED-
Well its been ordered and eta is 5-10 days time from this posting,shes a big ship-the biggest of the fleet,and it will keep me busy fitting out with radio-i shall post photos of this latest edition, not to far away
This model flies well,and l use a y-lead coupled with ailerons and rudder to make it turn better.Light as a feather-750 grams total with lipol 1300 mah 11.1 volt battery,used for thermal mainly but have used it on the slope and its a real joy-just add extra ballast-handles 15-20 knots no problem.Looks good in the air,after all it is made entirely of foam,so doesnt look as good as the flyflyhobby Dg 1000-2.6 metre on the ground.Wingspan is 2 metres.Have flown this model many times,and have had no problems with it.
Condor successsfully maidened-January 2011
Odd supplied tailplane-will be keeping it though, as the model has cost a fair sum of money to complete.
Wide wing and wing tip shot-eppler 205 flat bottom airfoil,strong wings-built up not foam core
fueslage & flaps showing-rigged to 70 degrees down-initially set to 90 degrees,but noticed strain on servos at 90 degrees,will leave at 70
canopy & wing close-up,canopy base is weak plastic mould,and l had a problem with that.Painted white to reflect hot sun baking it.
flaps added-its too fast without them
