Anyone here flying the modified Mini DLG yet?

Group,

I found this while searching for another plane on Aliexpress:

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2013-...315831926.html

Its the HK DLG with Aileron and Elevator only. Very nice looking and from the videos, it has performance.

Before I order, I was wondering if anyone else has this and what they think, and if there is a better price on the plane with shipping?

Thank you in advance!

Lunch break with Mr Mong! (1 min 47 sec)

I bet it would fly just fine. I read some comments about the weak pod construction on the 2-channel version. this one looks similar.

At $125 it is in the same price category as the foam core/fiberglass winged Super Mini Topsky.
Might be worth considering if you can get your hands on one.

some like wood construction, some like composites.... you choose.

I was hoping Hobby King would get this in their US warehouse. They had a video presenting it and then......squat. I like it, but the shipping is more than I want to spend.

Dave,

I got an Elf a couple of weeks ago I will let you try. Also have a 4ch 30" one that is fun. It checks in at 3.0 oz.

Buy 2 and the shipping drops to $30 each which is about what HK would charge; then you could sell the 2nd model to get your money back out if it including the shipping.

Hi Dick, I've got a mini 950 which I've been having a ball with and the aileron version is cool. However I broke the boom on the mini and I've just ordered a new boom from a dealer in China. That'll take a while to get here. I also just ordered the HK 1.5 meter composite dlg ARF (less building than many of the kits out there) from the US warehouse, so no aileron mini for me.

I flew some ALES type practice flights with the Solius today. I'd like to fly with you at the DESS field some day. I'm retired now so I've got lots of free time. Let me know when you're going out.

Is there a "real" Name for this glider other than Mini-DLG?

I once was in China (of about 5 business trips) and while eating with colleagues I asked what the dish consisted of? They said taste it, and I did. Then I re-asked, and their answer was "meat".

So is this Mini-DLG called ""plane"?

Chris

Or should I say "Copy" ? LOLOLOLOL
