These spoilers are a dream come true for those looking for an easy to install and set-up spoiler system for larger scale gliders.
They are single sided scissor action spoilers just like the full scale versions.
These fit flush to the wings surface when closed and proportionally open to their fully deployed height.
The working 'blade' length is 255mm and stands 20mm above the wing skin fully deployed.
• Alloy Construction
• Scale Scissor action
• Plug and Play electronics
• Open and Close limit switches
Overall length: 300mm
Installation Depth: 10mm
Height Deployed: 20mm
Plug: JR Style
Note: This is one Right Hand (Starboard) Spoiler only
A must if into gliders better than flaps or use in conjunction with flaps cheaper to buy individually rather than a pairI ordered a left & a right e-spoiler. The right one works as advertised. The left one was all sorts of screwed up, glitchy & obviously defective. Let's talk about the one that did work though. I noticed the HK e-spoiler only requires a very small range of stick movement to go from 0 to 100pcnt deployed. This means you don't get much resolution. Unlike other e-spoilers these are setup so you can't bottom-out the endpoints & fry the motor. They just stop once they reach either end of the travel. That's actually pretty nice. There is a LOT of slop in the mechanical linkages between the motor & the blade once it's deployed. That is not so good. Thankfully theyre pretty solid when retracted so I expect the blade wouldnt tend to get sucked up when in flight. I think these would work great for a budget foamy sailplane but I wouldnt recommend you install these in a $1000 composite ship.
