I rewatched this one after the DLG episode and just this time noticed the extra For landings the Alula can be caught and slid to a stop for a landing.
I assembled mine on a Sunday with a couple of football games on in the background. I had slid it in place before finishing the radio programming and gluing of the control rods into the control horns. Dream-Flight included their flight-pack combo with two servos and the NiMH 4.

Just pressed the BUY button now I wait till it arrives at glidfr mail box. I slide one wing side onto the wing rod on the appropriate side of the fuselage. The kit assembles quickly and the fit and finish of the parts is excellent. Any idea for CG? Sebastian A fun escape to the glder.
If at all it would be possible to design a flitetest glider, and maybe make a kit for it in the future. She isn’t nearly as efficient as the Elf, but so much more portable. I know that there will be more Alulas in my club after the success of the New Years Day flights.
RCbacon on April 3, Remember Me Forgot Password? On the con side: Maybe for a powered version you use a stick mount motor mount. First plane of this type. I say “should” as the wind has been marginal so far on my trips to the slope for this review.
Looks like something I would like to do with mine.
The discus launch as shown by Guy is not too strenuous as even I am doing it with my temporary bad back. Now remember I said I read the instructions.
With the aileron movement now correct I went into the Sub Trim for those two channels and centered the servo arms individually for both servos. Looking forward to trying my hand at thermal and slope hunting!
The Alula can be flown by a beginner who understands small movements with elevons are all that is needed for control. Thought I’d give this very attractive ‘bird’ a try and have not been disappointed.
Retractable Landing Gear GT Well I guess it’s another one for me to buy will put my order in tonight. Hard to tell from pictures if there’s enough room under the hatch for the servo wires, I have a Spektrum top pin version I planned on using. I will be looking for slopes also. Add me to the list of folks that went and ordered one after I watched your review.
Great, are there any other discus launch gliders that you really like FT? I bent the clevis to the shape it was supposed to be and started the screw into one side of the clevis.
We have found it to have improved closer to neutral feeling inverted than the EVO Thumb Wing Fuse Template.
A picture of the temporary damage is shown below. This gives me the elevator throw in the proper direction. Stevo on April 15, I would have liked it if the wind had built so I could test out the ballast box but when I landed to add some ballast the wind actually started to lessen from the approximate 8 mph back down to about 4. I printed out the plans and have the wings cut out. The control rod will fit between the two clevis sides. I had to go out and fly her before flying the new Trek to be sure I found the Trek to be a better plane and the Trek definitely is better!
At altitude she can perform loops and rolls and that glideer a very fun and nice quick way to bring her down. Jun 12, Need some better weather and a chance to put the trimming flights to the test in earnest. However there were no clevises in the kit.
It is a very well written manual. But the best thing is how unbelievably tough it is.
Rcpinoy, nice job on the illustrations. Notification for this product. Dream-Flight set out to improve what I though was already a very good plane that was fun to fly and I believe they succeeded wonderfully!
The model was well packaged and arrived undamaged. Log In to reply. She looks and handles great in the air and she will fly the way you want to fly her depending on the conditions. Jul 01, Alula from Dream Flight. After she was assembled than the real fun began.
