Blaster and Other DLG Opinions

Hello All,

I'm looking to get a DLG and wanted some opinions from people that own the
Blaster. I would like to get an XP-4, but I'm not willing to pay $390 for a
bare airframe. But I have heard good things about the Blaster so that seems
to be my next option.



So, how do you Blaster owners like your Blaster?



Any competitive DLG for under or around $350 is within my price range, so if
you know of a good one that fits this please chime in!



Thanks!

Jared

Re: Blaster and Other DLG Opinions

How about the Photon II? I have one and like it. I only fun fly it, but have heard it may be a competitive DLG. Right now, I enjoy flying it more than any of my other planes. That DLG stuff
is really addiciting.

RE: Blaster and Other DLG Opinions

Thanks for the reply.

Photon II looks nice but not exactly what I'm looking for.



It needs to be under 13ozs AUW (preferably under 11 or 12) and an aileron
model.



Anyone have any experience with the Absolut? I have heard it is heavy
(13+ozs) can anyone confirm the AUW?



The models I'm considering are:

Blaster (looks the best so far)

Absolut

Fireworks III (not sure how VAT works but I'm guessing this will probably be
out of my price range.)



It doesn't have to be a moldie.all these 3 just happen to be.



Thanks again!

Jared

RE: Blaster and Other DLG Opinions

Hey All,
Just wanted to say thanks for all the info about DLGs.

I ended up getting a Blaster. Price and availability are the 2 main factors
that decided it for me, but in retrospect it was definitely the right
decision.

The AUW on mine is 10.5ozthats flying weight, with .75oz in the nose for
balance. I used a JR610, 300mAh 1/3AA pack, and the new Dymond D4.7 servos.
The servos are pretty impressive! They weigh 4.7grams and have 20oz/in
torque!

A friend and I took it out on Wednesday and it flew VERY well. Fast,
responsive, and it showed even the lightest lift instantly. We didn't fly
too long, I had other obligations, and the range check was pretty bad
(antenna inside of the carbon boom.) The antenna is now fixed and the plane
will receive a new range check and more flight time tomorrow. Other than
the range issue it flew great, the plane indicated lift multiple times but
b/c of the range issue we decided to keep it close! It even looked decent
in sink. I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering a
competitive DLG in the future.

Anyways, thanks to everyone that replied.


Jared
