334usd for a GFK glider is a really god price and when i got it deliverd I quickly understod why, It is not a quality built glider and among several things I did need to do lots of sanding just to get the some throw on all the rudders and specially on the side rudder that only could move a couple of mm and as it was already glued in place it took some extra time to fix it. The surface finish is painted and not gelocote which not automaticly mean it is bad but in this case it does. The wing joiner system is just a bad construction that causes frustation. It states the wings are Hollow mould but it is way to much wood in the wings to call them that and as they had mounted the aileron cables wrong I needed to fix that but due to all wood in the wing it was almost impossible to get the cables out and even worse to put them in again. In my case I will convert it to a electric glider and just have it as easy to bring along glider and hopefully it will fly ok but if you have high expectations and are looking for a quality scale glider to be proud of this is not the one.Cannot be bothered to continue and its going into the loft for hibernation.
I suppose in about ten years it will be taken very quietly one night to the local tip.Such a strange offering and although very good value the quality is very poor and of no comparison to European offering.
The wing joiner mechanism is the most ridiculous piece of kit i have seen in over 58 years of model aircraft building and flying.
The tail plane assembly is awful as is the method of fitting the servo and unbelievably heavy to boot with ultra thick glass fiber and I have made a new tail assembly from balsa sheet covered with Oracover and the servo mounted in the rudder area as usual rather than in the tailplane itself.
I also seem to have two separate wings which are not a pair, one has good hinging and the other awful.
I never give up but this was nearly a bin item on a couple of occasions.
Its a very pretty airframe and I think it will fly quite nicely in the very near future but be warned if you expect decent quality.
