Is that the DG-1000 from hobby-lobby? If so what do you think of the kit and quality?

yes it is. I would say it flies great for what you pay for it. Do not expect a superb performance glider for competition or so. But it thermals nicely, I specked it out many times. It flies great, looks cool with the short wing chord and winglets. You can do loops and rolls, but you have to be careful not to stress the wings too much. I like the DG-1000 a lot!

Thanks for the info. Looks real nice for the price. I'm not a contest flier just like some quiet time at the field if you know what I mean.

put 2 hooks about 1" in front of the CG and about 1.5-2" below thw wings for hi-start. it's much safer than just having one hook

it flies really nice and fast. But you have to watch it! If you blink away for 1/2 a second it is gone

Thats just the way i like it

I have one of [link=http://miniwing.co.uk/miniwing-s.htm]theese[/link]. They are fast for such a small model, but not fast enough to raise the adrenaline all the way up.
I think this one maybe can [>:]
But, oh boy do this guys on the MiniWing video have some slopes to play around on. Check out their videos page. [link=http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=swsamike]50 really nice vids[/link] there.
