I found hand flying in the early morning at the local park before work to be the most accurate way to test the handling and flight glidsr.
The improvements were significant in my opinion but a really skilled hand toss pilot could still probably beat me with him flying my Evo and me my Aluls but I would pick the Trek for any competition with Alulas or for fun flying. ShaneH The slope is where it’s at I then repeated the process on the other wing half. Again just follow the excellent instructions.
The new version is even more delightful to build, taking about 45 minutes from start wlula finish. So happy you guys finally did this.
I trimmed these decals to not be on the balance bar points on the bottom of the wing The servos were installed. The Alula can be flown by a beginner who understands small movements with elevons are all that is needed for control.
Dream Flight’s Alula-Trek Sailplane Review – RC Groups
The servos were not glued in place but rather they also were secured with plastic tape over them and the foam. Launches are easy to perform when she is in proper balance and trim. Then the search for the next thermal begins or I enjoy doing some aerobatics. They hit their target goals stated at the start of this review and the Alula-Trek is both a better performing and prettier sailplane.
Well done guys in “chucking” up a DLG ish review! I then installed the short battery extension wire from the option flight pack into the battery channel on the receiver. They recommend a small tape vlider on the ballast to be able to easily remove the ballast.
Dream Flight Alula Trek
Alula Glider Wamberal Beach 6 min 35 sec. Guy has a slightly smoother half step spin launch that seems to get just about the same amount of height as Jeff’s more forceful launch. This required a large reduction of the travel for elevator that was there initially. Jan 10, Fun fun fun coming soon to me. Of course the kit isn’t as perfectly aligned as the Elf, but for what it is, and its price, it is great. I used masking tape to secure the elevon in the desired glidwr which simply followed the flow of the top wing.
Mar 19, Working with the wing upside down and slightly tilted I slowly added regular thin CA to glue the spars in place getting glue on both sides of the spar and well into the foam valley where the spars rested. The ultra lightweight and packable airframe is perfect for travel and exploration, assembling in minutes without glue!
The chord lengths are also a little different from root to tip than the Evo Flying is a joy, on a flat field with a alua breeze it just floats, with a bit of ballast on a slope it can handle a decent breeze and stays up forever.
Dream-Flight Alula Hand Launch Sailplane Review
Return to Foamies Scratchbuilt. But a beginner with a good instructor or good flight simulator could start with the Alula, but it would not be my first choice for a beginner.
An extremely well thought out design, with excellent instructions to complete the short and enjoyable assembly process. Easy wingtip launching for both left and right-handed pilots. Almost Ready alual Flight – no glue needed, designed with latches and magnets Has a wide thermal flight range and alulx gusts with ease EPO foam and composite material parts ensure a alulaa and durable hull Wing support system allows quick dismantling and assembly at any location Simple Wingtip launch for left and right-handed pilots colour scheme of painted wingtips not included design white.
Jan 08, The plane is suppose to balance on the two balance bars near the front of the servos. The wings were installed. Once in the thermal I start circling and try to center the Alula-Trek in the thermal and ride the thermal up.
Last edited by rkhoo; Jun 07, at I thought of making one out of foam and parts laying around to save cost. I can’t get too much of the Alula. The new nose is longer and the wing is a different shape in several ways including being thinner and with less up-turn at the wing tip. On a different afternoon I had a chance to go to a hill closer to Stockton and got in an uninterrupted hour plus of flying time on the slope.
