Do you like fast planes? Then you will love the HobbyKing GL-Speedy Hotliner! Constructed from ultra smooth Fiberglass, laser cut plywood and balsa for a ridgid, slippery, high performace model. The HobbyKing GL-Speedy takes a variety of 28mm diameter motors for extreme prop driven airspeed, throttle down and prepare to get addicted to those high speed silent passes!
You will require a 28XX 2800~3300kv brushless motor, three slimline wing servos, a 3~4S 2200mah lipoly battery, a 40~70amp ESC and your own transmitter and receiver (Tx/Rx) to complete this model.
Wing Span : 1600mm
Length : 970mm
Flying Weight: 910~1340g
3 Channel (throttle, aileron, elevator)
Glass-fibre fuselage with ply
Fully Sheeted Balsa/ply wing
Your own 4ch TX &
3 x Low Profile wing servo/Mini servo
High 28mm Diameter Motor
Lipoly Battery 2200mAh~3300mAh 3s~4s
Der Speedy ist kein echter Hotliner, dazu fehlt die Möglichkeit einen entsprechenden Antrieb einzubauen. Des Weiteren ist der Rumpf sehr "weich", der Motorspant schlecht eingeklebt und muss unbedingt vorher stabilisiert und nachgeklebt werden. Wer in die Welt der Hotliner hineinschnuppern möchte, kann sich den Speedy antun. Leider vermittelt der Speedy nicht annähernd, was für einen Spaß ein echter Hotliner macht.This kit is rubbish.Needs a lot of work to get right.Wing fixing is inadequate.No wing spar supplied in kit.Having joined wing panels found one panel needed 18grams to balance.One panel must have used heavy wood.Only plus side is fuselage nicely moulded if a little heavy.
I dont advise putting servo in tail,but to use a snake and fit as far forward as possible.Compared to this one (my buddy owns it) my "Speedy composite EP Performance Glider" is much more durable (use of plywood reinforcements inside of fuselage also aft of wings, wing joiner made of GFK instead of ply, better servo covers and some more).
And all for 10,- less than this!
But still there is a bit of work to be done to make it a real hotliner (if possible at all)...
Mine didn't really last long enough to give a proper feedback on it. The GF fuselage is just a little too brittle to take a hard landing, which of course is the pilot's fault :) Part of a learning experience. However, having taken the wings (fuse gone) and mounted them on my Phoenix 2000 fuselage I now have a most enjoyable fast plane that flies like on rails, with no vices, 500W of a 3000kv 2836 propdrive 6x3 prop and 3s2200mAh. In fact right now it's my favourite plane (out of 20). I don't think she deserves 1 star. The speedy wings on a phoenix fuse would get 5 stars from me :)Bin sehr zufrieden damit,

But if you invest a couple of hours it will not disappoint you - and you will fly it with a smile! This are the improvements I made (3548/1100kV, ESC 80A, 2700mAh/4s). Wing: Replace the wooden wing joiner by a carbon and the wooden eperon holding the wing on the fuselage by a epoxy one. Laminate a glass tape (100mm wide) as an extra wing joiner over the two wing parts (take off the cover sheet) with Epoxy L (40min). Fuselage: Reinforce the saddle between the cockpit and the wing with two braided glass cords (200x6mm): Put one on cockpit- and the other on wingside. Put a glass tape on the eperon holder as well as on the wing's endpiece. Laminate. Then for motor cooling purposes make at least 3 holes on the fuselage front and don't forget to make 1 at the rear. A lot of work for such a cheap plane. I wonder why the manufacturer does not do this reinforcements by itself and sell the plane for 10$ more.
A great flying plane. My speed record is 146.7 mph with the following setup: 3126 heli motor 1300 kv, 70 amp red brick ESC, 10x8 folding prop, 5 cell 1800 40C lipo. It pulls 1200 watts, 80 amps static, and wieghs 3 lbs. Reinforcing is required of the wing and wing saddle. See my review with flight footage on youtube 'hobbyking gl speedy hotliner arf 147mph REVIEW' (or under videos (if HK posts it).VERY happy with the gl goes like the clappers . flies out of your hand and up at great speed,lands easily with flapperons . love it . 1400 kv with 2200 3s 3536 turnighy, would get another one if I lost this one.Hi everyone .
Today using a 2580 kv with 4.75/4.75 prop and a 4s batt i clocked it a 248 km/ hour.
AMAZING.... nothing broke.
I read all the reviews and to tell u the truth i did not do any changes on the plane nor did i strengthen the wing or the fuselage.
Hope you gys out there can time yours and get some speed reading
