The Fling DL Sport ARF can be ready for its first discus launch after just 2-3 hours of straightforward assembly. Quality construction adds strength while also minimizing weight. Radio gear mounts easily inside the fiberglass fuselage pod. The rudder and elevator control surfaces utilize a lightweight, easy-to-install pull/pull linkage system.
Wrap your fingers around the carbon throwing peg (it can be located in either wing half for right- or left-hand use). Spin the Fling DL like a discus. Its long tail and broad, stiff wing with AG45 airfoil create powerful lift from the momentum of the spin. Release your grip and watch your Fling DL soar to 100-foot or greater altitudes!
