The Hobbyking™ 1.0M Mini DLG V2 is a development of the already hugely popular Mini DLG composite glider.
Just like it's elder sibling, this latest development is a great looking and competitive DLG with an equally competitive price tag, superb composite construction and a flight performance to match!
Molded from carbon, aramid and fiber glass cloth, this model serves as a fantastic introduction to this fascinating branch of the hobby as well as being highly competitive in the popular "Mosquito" DLG class. Also, with rudder, elevator, aileron and flap control this high performance DLG is just as at home as a light wind slope soarer, where its aerobatic capability is enhanced by the rigid structure.
Opening the box reveals the 1 piece vacuum bagged blue foam core wing finished with carbon/kevlar cloth, laid on a 45 degree bias for a torisionally rigid wing, while carbon spar caps give longitudal strength. The CNC cut carbon launch peg is provided as a separate item in the kit, allowing you to install it for either left or the right handed throwing.
Live hinged, full-span size ailerons are set up for two servos allowing you to use them as flaps for camber adjustment for maximum flight versatility. With a suitable radio system these can be set for launch, cruise, thermal, speed and landing modes.
The tail surfaces of the Mini DLG V2 are made from a rigid Rohacell foam core laminated between glass cloth skins. Both the upright and horizontal surfaces incorporate carbon fiber spars for strength and rigidity during maximum effort throws, along with kevlar tape hinges and local reinforcement.
The Kevlar aramid cloth fuselage pod is reinforced with a longditudinal carbon spar and incorporates the wing fairing to reduce drag, as well as a carbon molded canopy for access. Control rods for the tail surfaces are ready fitted along the top of the carbon boom.
Available as a plug and fly model with servos pre-installed, or an almost ready to fly version allowing you to fully customize your setup.

Great value and flies well. Only problem I have is getting anything bigger than a 120 mAh NiMH to fit. Anny sugestions out there?Whoa! This is nice! This is the first composite foam core plane I have ever had so I was surprised with how nice it looks. I am not aware of anybody at the club having foam composite planes, so I haven't seen any in person before. The only thing I don't like is the hinge are is raw foam without any spacer sealing the edge. I don't know if this is "normal". I expected it to be filled with some "contest" balsa or similar. I will treat the raw edges to some blenderm tape before I assemble. I really want to prevent water absorption from frequently damp grass.
Test fitting is 100pcnt perfect. Bolt holes line up nice. Very nicely done. The rudder lines up nicely with the main wing.
The included instructions recommend a 1/3 AAA NiMH battery which is practically impossible to find. I have been forced to order tab cells from ebay to make my own pack. (It really is an easy task I have taken apart cordless phone batteries in the past but can't get the right cell size that way either!)
I have the 2 channel balsa version of this and have had excellent performance out of it. I look forward to full house controls.
I would have preferred if the wood pro wing were available with rudder and elevator as full house, but decided to go this route instead of kit bashing what I wanted from 2 planes. I think I made a good choice.Ich habe mir den Kleinen gegnnt. Kann die Angaben meiner Vorredner nicht besttigen. Mein PDF hatte keine Mngel, es war alles zusammen gebaut, wie es sein soll. Er hat eine gute Fluggeschwindigkeit und lsst sich schn werfen.
Am Hang als Soaren hat er mir sehr gut gefallen, lsst sich direkt und sauber fliegen. Insgesamt, sehr zufrieden.
Daumen hoch.love this dlg and a great price thanks hobby king keep it up guys
