Description
Size matters no matter what they say.....and that also applies to trainers! The Discovery fits very nicely into the "club" trainer catagory and ticks all the right boxes in terms of good looks, practicality & durability.
 
Construction is traditional semi sheeted light-ply/balsa which offers a combination of low weight and high strength. The expertly applied, glossy & easy to wipe-down covering is printed in an attractive colour scheme that is ideal for orientation. The Discovery is supplied with a very comprehensive, good quality hardware kit that includes a fuel tank & engine mount for those wishing to go for glow power and also a ply motor mount for those wishing to go electric, the hardware kit also includes an alloy spinner, heavy duty & anodised clevis and pushrods, etc. The Discovery is very practical & features a 2pc wing for easy transportation and field assembly as well as a bolt on tail assembly, the model also features a quick release battery hatch with cooling vents, tricycle under-carriage for excellent ground handling, hard wearing rubber tires and of course a steerable nose wheel.
 
Any experienced pilot will tell you that the bigger they are, the better they fly, this is why this is the perfect club trainer size, the Discovery is managable both in terms of transport and at the airfield, can handle some wind, flies slowly and predictably enough to inspire confidence, is cheap to assemble and being a quick build balsa ARF, the Hornet gives the new pilot a feeling of satisfaction & confidence that can only come from "building" and setting up a new model of this size and type. There is much to be said for starting the hobby of aeromodelling from a more traditional path and the good looking Discovery is a model any RC pilot would be proud to own!

Sehr schnes Modell, bis auf paar kleine Details gut verarbeitet. Einige Verklebungen sind nicht so 100pcnt und sollten nachgearbeitet werden. Die Rder sollte man auch durch grere ersetzen wenn man von einer Rasenpiste startet und landet. Die Ruder sind leider recht dicht an in die Tragflchen geklebt sodas man hier nacharbeiten sollte um genug Freigngigkeit der Ruderscharniere zu erreichen.

Was mir sehr gut gefllt sind die beiden abnehmbaren Klappen, dadurch kommt man sehr gut an z.B. Tank/Akku und Empfnger. Genail auch die 2 geteile Tragflche, somit ist auch ein Transport in kleineren Autos mglich.

Wie auch schon bei einigen anderen Modellen hier bei HK fehlte auch bei mir der Motortrger fr E-Antrieb. Strte mich aber nicht weiter da bei mir ein Evolution 10GX zum Einsatz kommt. Vollgetankt hatte ich ein Abfluggewicht von ca 2800g.

Zu den Flugeigenschaften kann ich als Anfnger recht wenig sagen, aber ich habe mit diesem Modell dass Verbrennerfliegen gelernt und wenn man die Ruderausschlge etwas ruduziert und Expo gibt fliegt es sehr ruhig und gutmtig.

Wrde es mit jederzeit wieder kaufen, fr das Geld kann man mit diesem Modell nicht viel falsch machen.

Sehr gutes model.
Die fliegt absolut gutmtig! Die Angaben von Schwerpunkt und Ruderausschlge passen sehr gut zum model. Ich fliege den Trainer mit 6 S 2700 mh/h der Motor dreht ca. 580 umin/V und habe eine 117 Latte.

For me this model is a perceft model, easy to fix, easy to fly, perceft for beginner and intermediate level, can fly easy using ASP .46 or ASP .52, only normal 4.6kg normal servo can handle easly. Easy to landing. I bought more than 8 this model and still good until now. If broken it easy to repair and stable. You all must try

Being an instructor at the local club, i was looking for a plane to use when the students didn't have a plane of their own. This air frame doesn't break the bank and has great handling characteristics for a club trainer. There are some weaker areas that do need some work. Where the wing tube goes through the fuse I'll reinforce, and also where the landing gear is attached the fuse it's pretty weak. We'll wait till a student damages it first before going through he trouble.
