I am new to this dlg thing and would sure like to see the flight review of this plane. It looks like a fun beginner tbh.

Well biggest problem with flight reviews is its brand new n most of the US is in winter season. But I would venture to say if you wait a month or two there will be reviews

Tell you wife inquiring minds what to know how this thing fly's. Tell her you've been a good boy and need to give us a flight report.

Hey mike Let me give ya a little tip Scotch tape and a magazine for weight. Carefully knife open box while wife is sleeping remove model and add magazine for weight tape box closed and wrap with paper move model to hanger/ work space and get it Rtf. But dont fly it. Wait till xmas, If you get caught tell her you wanted to be able to test fly on xmas. and you didnt want to take time away from her and or family to build and assemble on xmas

You guy's are too funny. I am considering this model or an Art Hobbies Momentum, any compare and contrast between these DLG's?

Judging by the size of the box, did the wing come in one piece or two pieces? I'm looking for something that will fit in my suitcase, even if that means gluing it together after I get there and leaving it there.

Thanks!



Edit: Takes a bit more than 30 minutes to assemble like the web page says. Joining the wings alone says allow to dry for 24 hours....

I finished building mine this afternoon and took it out for some soft launches. I'm a DLG noob so keep that in mind. The plane fit together quite well. The quality was honestly better than I expected. I did replace the supplied string with .012 beading wire.

It was completely dead air this evening but the plane still flew well. It's easy to launch and basically taught me how to use the AD DLG 4.1 eepe. I'm running the recommended 1s 500mAh battery and a FrSky D4R-II. CG seemed good with everything placed as far up toward nose as possible.

The plane is also quite durable. Don't ask me how I know. '

Edit: Also used 15 min epoxy on the critical parts. The manual calls for CA on the peg installation but that seemed pretty suspect so I used epoxy.

The instructions look to be very clear and good. If lunching withthe right hand which side of the rudder does the clives go on?

My understanding is that it should always go to the opposite side that the launch peg is on. That's what I did.
