The Mini DLG is a great looking discus launch glider with an attractive price tag, excellent construction quality and flight performance to match! 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.
The lightweight construction of the Mini DLG has been achieved through extensive use of carbon fiber, glass fiber, and Kevlar. Vacuum bagged blue foam core wings are skinned with kevlar cloth laid on a 45 degree bias. This gives excellent torsional rigidity even during the most aggressive of launches. Carbon fiber leading edge and wing tips gives added durability whilst carbon spar caps stiffen the wing.
The fuselage pod is Kevlar aramid cloth, transitioning to a spiral wrapped tapered carbon boom, topped off with a access hatch also of carbon. The tailplane is carbon matte cloth bagged over foam cores for stength and minimal weight. Premium hardware is included giving positive control response, while keeping the weight penalty low. The launch peg is CNC cut carbon plate.
The Mini DLG is perfect for those pilots wanting to have a go at discus launch gliders but are put off by the big bucks Euro designs. Thankfully for you, the Mini DLG is superb quality, thoughtful design which results in its excellent performance. Its small size is great for keeping in the car for those impromptu flying sessions. Being a DLG, attaining massive height, with minimal effort on launch is easy. The extreme light weight means the Mini DLG will thermal in even the lightest of wind conditions.

Just got mines in today , great qaulity very strong material but the only downside was there isnt too much room for the reciver or battery however you can make it work and fit fine. Id recommend a 1S lipo lets say anything under 500 mah. Flight performance is great definitely a floater in thermals , better than hk 950mm dlg for sure. Id recommend this one if you want a more strong/better floating dlg.Great evening . This is my first dlg , great fun , tough construction . I have had a few tough landings . but gliders all good . usually test all components before flight . over all great glider ,wish i could get replacement rudder and or elevator . I ll just have to make oneThis is my first dlg great fun good value . had some great flights and many more to come . very tough glider, good flight times ,loving my new dlgThe quality is good. Only problem is that the holes in the servo arms are to large so the neutral is not very good, it is not an issue for the rudder but I will have to fix that for the elevator.
Impossible to fit a 2s 180mAh and a UBEC in this small fuselage, so I fit a 240mAh smartlipo (11g). Receiver is a hk orange rx400
143g with 18g of additional weight in the nose to balance it as in the manual
The cg is a little to forward but ok for the firsts flights.
No thermals for the firsts flights but it flies good!Mine arrived with the servo plate detached from the fusolage... will have to unmount it and work on it. almost plugh and play. The glider looks awesome by the way, very well done and precise.my dlg delivered with crack in main wing and pressed. I asked for compensation HK specialist said that it not major problem and will give me only $15. this is DLG not just plane add weight to fix problem will affect fly ability. I 'm thinking about replacement but they don't have in stock.
