Well built glider with very nice finnish,just a bit weak at the front of the fuselage so I would recommend adding some glass or carbon to this
At this price why buy a foamie from m....plex have a real glider made of glass
Hope it flies as good as it looks , so will be building it very soon
The maiden flight with the Riot was just perfect. It took some time to build it. Yes there is no construction manual, that's a pity. But you'll find out how to assemble the horns for the V-tail. And yes, the Riot is extremly nose heavy. I glued 20g of fischermans lead right on the edge of the fuselage below the V-tail to get the center of gravity. The cg is about 8cm from the front edge of the wing.
I'm using the DT38 Turnigy Hotliner High Performance Brushless Inrunner Motor. I is actually to big for the fuselage with a 39mm diameter. So i just shortened the nose by 1cm. That gave me enough space to mount the DT38. The motor it's self is very powerfull even with 4 Cells an a 15*10 inch prop it pulls right in to the sky.
There is not much space for the battery and now with the second try i've hopefully found the right one. Turnigy nano-tech A-SPEC 2200mah 5S 65~130C Lipo Pack.
For ailerons and flaps i mounted Turnigy TGY-777MG servos. They are extremly noisy but i hope it gets better with time. The servos for the V-tail (i used TGY-306G) have to be mounted as far back as possible. I can't reach them anymore.
The plane is realy not a hotliner it is more a very sporty glider flying like on tracks.
And with the flaps you can slow it down perfectly for landings.
My opinion, the Riot is very well built it flies very friendly. But it needs a construction manual an HK should sell Inrulease be carefully. The joint tube for wings has light V bent and you should twist it a bit to make the wings as tight at possiable then you bolts and hole match each at the fuse. The rest till now OK. And it looks like a masterpeace? It is a pity no manuals for the product 300 $.Hello. Boys and girls. Just flew mine this morning. Flies like a missile with no signs of fluttering diving from great heights. Very precise control and good clean aileron rolls. Make sure you mount your elevator and rudder servos as far back as possible as this sailplane is nose heavy. My servos are mounted back under rear wing bolts and with the battery slid back to the servos it's still a little nose heavy. Could I be the first in the world to fly this sailplane? As there are no other reviews.
