El HobbyKing ™ Mini Guppy Slope es un modelo brillante perfecto para aquellos que buscan entrar en planeadores de pendiente sin la molestia y el costo de la construcción de un kit tradicional! De tamaño pequeño, una excelente calidad de construcción y un alto nivel de pre-ensamblaje, todo a un precio que no puede ser mejor! Trabajar con el diseñador Europea Mitja Erman, el Guppy se ha refinado en un gran modelo de pendiente en un enchufe y volar versión para llegar a la pendiente sólo que mucho más rápido.
El ala de dos piezas se construye a partir de balsa y cubierto de película ultra-ligero, como es el fuselaje, estabilizadores horizontal y vertical. Un cono de nariz de plástico se puede retirar lo que permite una fácil conversión a la energía eléctrica.
El HobbyKing ™ Mini Guppy Pendiente llega con las secciones de alas, fuselaje y cola pre-ensamblados, así como los servos, varillas de empuje y los cuernos de control de todos los pre-equipada. Después de abrir la caja, usted sólo tendrá que atornillar en el ala, el estabilizador horizontal e instalar su propio receptor / batería. Volando literalmente minutos después de la apertura de la caja.
• Plug and Fly - sólo tiene que añadir el receptor, batería y volar!

BEWARE These have an extremely dodgy elevator push rod setup. They have used 2 different gauge wires and joined them by the servo with heat shrink and they fail. The outer guide for the push rod is glued in during construction and cannot be replaced. Sounds a simple fix but believe me it is not Pity as apart from that they are nicely built.So after reinforcing like everyone has said, reattach the tail to the boom with epoxy, solder the elevator push rod to z-bend, and add balsa back stop behind wing, the plane lasted all of 30 min. Throwing javelin style, landing in 2 inch grass, the sheeting on the right wing has failed, between the first and second wing rib. Thankfully I noticed it before my next throw, but now I am faced with uncovering and resheeting that section and praying there isn't anything else broken on this "pnp" model. Perhaps it is rtf, rebuild to fly?
After waiting weeks it's finally in the UK warehouse, Got mine and it's a lovely glider but have to comment on the way the elevator control rod is connected to the servos, (2 pieces of wire joined by a piece of heat shrink tubing) are you joking or what HK, as soon as i powered up the elevator servo the joint came apart, in the air i would have more than likely lost what is a very good glider! But easy fix with electric guitar string (see my photos in files tab) apart from that it's a very well made little slope soarer. Also spent 10mins going over it with my iron as a few lose bits of film, 35gram added plus 2 300mah 2cells to get c of g right.I wanted a small fast glider and this looked perfect. I paid full price which was quite expensive for a small simple model but it looked good and was exactly what I wanted. It was delivered well packed no problems and looked good. Before I even got it in the air, the elevator push rod close to the servo came apart. The 2 pieces of wire in the elevator push rod had been joined with heat shrink close to the servo. This is a very crappy way to may this critical joint. I fixed this by soldering the two pieces of wire together. Then the whole tail assembly came unstuck from the carbon fibre tail boom. I glued this back with epoxy. Both of these failures would have potentially destroyed the plane if it had been in the air. While doing the repairs, the nut that the wing bolt screws into fell off inside the fuse. I had to hack a hole in the side of the fuse to replace this. This is a great little plane manufactured to a shameful standard. I will never buy another ARF plane from HobbyKing.Haven't actually got to fly mine yet, but thought I would share what I have observed so far.
i) it's a lovely design & well made for the price.
ii) you only get 1 servo to control the ailerons, but a bit of research on rcgroups shows how to convert to 2.
iii) the designer recommends you tape the wings together to stop them getting ripped off in a crash & breaking the mounting points. I would go one step further & suggest you glue the 2 halves together & to the fuselage.
iv) the biggest issue I see is the ailerons are taped to the wing on the wrong side (imho) as it restricts the movement on the up side, but unrestricted going down - which is the opposite of what you want for clean rolls. So I am expecting poor handling because of this & there's no way to get the tape off without damaging the covering. The only other way to solve it would be to flip/swap the wings & remove/refit the control horns.wing fixing screws are odd size about 2.7mm diameter thankfully I have found two metal ones in my scrap box!
Nose cone is flimsy!
Needs 40-50gms to balance ( model is only 200 with receiver an battery)
Test glide fine, apart from nose cone!Arrived late god bless Parcelforce! looks fine but....
1. wing fixing screws strip when tightened
2. elevator pushrod is too long for correct adjustment
3. Aileron clevis poor quality
4. Attaching cockpit with 3 scraps of masking tape is a bit naff to say the least
It will also need lead to balance as a glider unless you fit a large battery!
With a little care could be a great product, please try harder.
Now I must try and find some wing screws.Nice sailplane, all in all sturdy, but limited quality at best. Needs reworking. Crappy one servo-ailerons solution. Will rework it to to servos. The tail came loose on the first flight, absolutely have to check and reglue those. As a sailplane, it needs much ballast up front when working with a light battery.
Took me more than an hour to overcome the build defect on one aileron (not enough deflection due to wood not worked properly).
