DG1000 2.6 meter

This is a very well made cheap scaley from HK...well worth it..
Glas fuz, sheeted balsa rib wings molded winglets..
I got mine electricfied to get more flying done at my local
club instead of going to the slopes..maybe once a month if I am lucky

Flys fast, thermal well and the wings really flexes..especially speed run.

Got it from..

More more, more info!!

Can you provide us with more in depth information about the plane. It looks very attractive indeed. Total weight, handling characteristics, strength, quality of the kit, etc.

I have been looking for a smaller DG-500/1000 to electrify. Very scale in appearance for it's small size!

Glad to know about the Aero Fever website! I was wondering if individual parts are available (for the inevitable ground impact)!

HF Modell website is http://web.telecom.cz/hfmodell/dg1000.html

I believe this is a 3.6 meter craft?

Miles of smiles....

The ARF is of very good quality..I cannot fault it except with a few small bumps on the fuz molding..u will have to look hard. Mine is V1 was a pain to install the elevator properly, V2 fixed that. The hardware is complete and is very good. It rolls and loop with ease and made a fantastic sound(like F3b) on speed run. Watch those wings, it goes anti- hidral. I had a midair down the strip with a Sp400 GWS Tigermoth Only a minor damage to the LE, needed a bag for the Tiger, the DG was easily fixed being balsa construction. I would recommend a spare wing when u buy one. My canopy is very brittle..handle with care... they gave me a replacement and and the new ones has better material..I was told!!

Just ordered mine.

Do that!

I can't decide between "1000" or the 110" span ASW-22 BL from Icare

Both are my favorites!

I plan to fly mine of a slope, is the basic aileron setup enough for turns, or do i need to do ail-rudder mixing?

Hi G.P.,

The shipping to Canada for one DG-1000 is at US$50.63 for EMS or US$39.63 by Air Parcel (7-14 days). If it send to the US, the shippign will be $48.75 & $38.13 respectively.

Moreover, there is a simple mod. to this DG-1000 to min. the V or /\ shape due to its flex wing joint. After this simply mod. the wing will not as "V-shape" as before for loop and fast speed approaching. It is quit simple and no need to break the main wing up. I will show the pictures when I mod. mine in this week.

Thanks ^^
