DESIGNED TO GO WHEREVER INSPIRATION TAKES YOU The alula-TREK is the latest version of the the world’s most popular bird-inspired RC glider. I probably shouldn’t be posting this before the maiden but whatever Blues Alula is just to sexy. Sexy and very time consuming to build/sand so. Just built myself a little micro glider, its based on a popular Alula DLG. Its a fun little plane to trow around the backyard. My friend recorded

Overall, I’m not too dispointed though – this is a facinating plane. Nice little glider, I think it would do very well at slope soaring. I even replaced the elevons with stiff balsa – no improvement.
Its a tricky job so take time and do it nice Hi All, Its been a while since I posted – I have tended to read here far more than post – so I thought I would write a little something about my recent flirtation with the Alula Evo not least of all because it was mentioned on another Gliders and Gliding thread recently. Making a depron fuzz can be ok but I later found out that there was problems adding ballast.
I am still messing with the COG and the setup. Ill find out at maiden for sure. I am still a tenderfoot when it comes to thermal and DLG flight, but with this plane in the hands of an experienced pilot, 2 minute flights should be easy.
One for the wing and one for part of the fuse. An other alternative would be the ‘La Piuma’ powered Glider, which has a 1. I rewatched this one after the DLG episode and just this time noticed the extra I think that would be a challenge The longest part was taping. Now work out your needed depth AUW gms 9oz wing loading 3. Modarius “Watch out for Microjet from my dreams. What I did was cut the elevons across the grain into four sections.
I am staring at the friggin clock waiting to get out of work to try this bad boy out. I can’t wait to get to a slope to try it out, most people told me it flew great in slope conditions. Thanks Im going SAL. Now there are only two more layers to laminate so get them fitted I hinged the elevons with uni-directional FG strapping tape and placed some blenderm on the top of the hinge to seal the gap.
How do these wings handle higher wing loadings? I love me some gliders now, That’s how I started in the hobby back in the 70’s shhhh don’t tell I’m just a little over 50 going on 18 ok. You’ll find my info here: Feb 26, The receiver area was hollowed out a bit as per manual recommendation – to house a Corona RSII 6 Channel 35mHz Receiver – weighing in at just over 6 grams or so.
Installing the engine and radio systems. I’m back into gliders but lazy all mine have some power asst. The small versions shown at the start of this thread were found to be low wind fliers onlygetting blown away at over 10mph.
Do you know if it dries clear and doesn’t distort the markers? I am presently trying new methods to produce a standard and tapered profiled wingI am using layers because I cant hot cut.
So excited to try this thing out! Only later, after eyeballing the wing did I notice that the wing was showing what appeared a different aluka of attack at the center, compared to the tips The plans can be downloaded from the german rc-magazine ‘Modell-Aviator’: So on our lunch break he got to fly the for the first time. The issue, which I never resolved, was extreme vibration on the elevons at high speeds, which severely limited the launch.
Oct 27, I had to add about 0. I had an idea about leaving the elevons bare howerver placing some carbons strips across the grain to keep them stiff.
Alula and Weasel Shape Based Slope Gliders.. A-clone and W-clone – RC Groups
I ordered mine today. Lol, leaving work now to go home.
Seems to me that just copying a design and making your own version of a plane isn’t really a big deal. Last edited by rcpinoy; Sep 22, at I had to take the gear off of my SU47 which I don’t like but I needed the motor and servos.
Alula Evo – build and first thoughts
So, is alulz any magic in these designs that cannot be copied? I did use CA – I may need to revisit with a glue with a touch more give. He liked it a lot. The tail again was hand drawn at the guide size shown.
FPV is not a crime! How is the tail attached?
