My Visit to Peak Hobby - Home of the Binary-900


Over the last little while, I've been reading the thread about the Binary-900 with interest. Since I'm in Shanghai on business, I decided to get in touch with the maker, Harry Ha of Peak Hobby. After a long, and not so direct cab ride, I arrived at the factory.

Attached are some pics of my factory tour. I'm the happy owner to two Binary-900's, and Harry is (I hope) the happy owner of a lightly use 2007 Polecat T-shirt.

Hello!

I'm very new to DHL Gliders, in fact I haven't purchased one yet but I think the models that Peak-Hobby is offering are looking like a good value and good quality. I found a number of kits under $100 but coming from building scratch EP planes (and Kit planes) for a while I think I'm ready to give an ARF model a try.

I ran across Harry's internet site while searching for info on the DHL Gliders. My first thought was how nice his planes look. I was thinking of buying the Ice-Fire II but my gear may be a little light as I've been flying 4oz EPP planes with pretty light gear/batteries. And this model has ailerons that may be a bit much for me to cope with, (Just concentrating on the DHL technique may cause my brain to forget I am flying a plane! Soooooo, I am now considering the Binary-900. Has anyone flown one? If so are they fast/slow, will they catch low thermals? I didn't see anything on wing loading but at an AUW of 5oz I'm hoping for something in the high 3's to low 4's. I have been in contact with Harry and I will say he replies pretty quick to questions.

Thanks in advance for your input and advice.

Harry told me he's already sold 100 Binary-900's, so hopefully someone will chime in. If not, when I get back home I'll start a build thread.

Well, if everything went right with paypal I ordered the Binary-900. Harry responded to an earlier email that answered most of my questions. My thought was if this plane catches on they'll be on back order before you know it. If it doesn't or it is just too fast....Well, it wouldn't be the first (Or last) plane I have bought thinking it was the the perfect one.

This one I can help with... https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=835469

Build as per the plans, the plane has enough dihedral to turn well with only the rudder. But, you could easily go all out and put ailerons on it (a la Apogee elite).
