Jan 08, Often after climbing for awhile I simply loose the thermal and the Alula-Trek starts gliding alul. The plane has elevon controls. This configuration is perfect for a hawk flying slow, tight circles to stay within small near ground thermals while searching for its next meal.
Gening DBB Servo – 8. I spray painted the inside of the nose skid a light coat of white paint and set it aside to dry. The plans are available free from Make Magazine: Very good in-flight characteristics: So while I have flow the Trek and the Evo in various conditions it was in these early morning conditions that I confirmed to myself that the Trek flies faster, has a better glide ratio and from the same altitude I could generally get a slightly longer flight with the Trek over the Evo.
Ripmax SD Servo – 8. This really is a great little plane to take with you just about anywhere, it’s easy to fly and very relaxing in light winds on the slope. So where trees may be adjacent to a slope or the flying area is rather small I get away with some pretty good flying locations that many would not even think about.
The scene fades with me discus tossing the Alula and walking down the runway with her flying around me.
Return to Hand Launch. Flying is a joy, alulq a flat field with a slight breeze it just alulw, with a bit of ballast on a slope it can handle a decent breeze and stays up forever. I can’t get too much of the Alula. As a result, we have a glider with a slightly broader weight range than what is printed on the manual and kit box current weight specifications are shown below. Has completely sold me on DLG. Jul 01, I’ll be gliderr more and keep you guys posted of the progress. I tried playing around with programming and could only select elevons in airplane mode so believe you did it the only way possible.
This was fast and easy! Looking for your store account? Trust me when I say I found these clevises fun to install and they have worked great!
Dream-Flight Alula Hand Launch Sailplane Review – RC Groups
Jeff may have said it best when momentarily lost for words he waved at the electrics in the sky and pointed at the Alula in the air and said: I have found that I can best tell how my sailplanes are handling when there is no wind or breeze nor any lift as the sun has not started to heat things up.
But her true beauty is how she flies and in my test flying glidee my local park she proved to fly faster, have less drag and turns were actually and these combined to give the Trek a better glide ratio. Posting Quick Reply – Please Wait. Once in the thermal I start circling and try to center the Alula-Trek in the thermal and ride the thermal up.
I recommend the combo servo and battery pack for convenience and having components of the proper size and weight. Me quick, stretch into a monster! Only 24 left in stock! Be careful on cliff flying, as I was glixer confident and flying it in close enough to catch by hand, but as it weighs nothing, it is susceptible to any turbulence, resulting goider a nose first high speed accident.
Return to Foamies Scratchbuilt. No glue or sanding was required for the Alula-Trek.

OK here it is ready to go. In the end these changes, in my opinion made the design better in flight too.
Gider have an option to have aljla removable wing but they recommend against it as it adds weight but if flying just at a slope that would not be a problem. No worries so far, the mAh gives me at least 2 a,ula flying and is probably good for nearly 3 with my set-up.
Very pleased so far. I’m very pleased with the kit and the service provided by Hyperflight. Packing so wonderfully small and securely, I packed this along with my Elf for a road trip to the pyrenees.
The glider is cool but I can’t make it fly for more than 15 sec I was going to ask the same thing. I took the control rod and put it through the servo control arm and had it lined up with the aileron control horn.
On the con side: ShaneH The slope is where it’s at Ideal for calm winds and gentle flying. And for those of us that can’t make it out to the slopes, I managed to get a motor on this bird and still keep that cool profile. Though I’m alul to chicken to actually fly it I found it extremely helpful to limit the travel of the elevator to the recommended throws in the dual rate setups given above. Per the instructions I made 20mm glidre every 15 mm along the aileron foam hinge line with 20mm of intact foam gpider on each end.
The Trek flies better than the Evo in a light breeze and with her ballast box I think she will fly better in stronger wind as well but I haven’t gotten a chance to test that assumption yet.
Thanks for the great review Michael.
