Feather ultralight radio control DLG RC Glider micro mini squared microbirds

RC Plane Radio Control Kit Glider Airplane

Feather² Squared
UltraLight Micro F3k DLG RC Glider Airplane | Radio Control

Take fanciful flight with this ultra-light-weight micro radio control RC DLG glider.  Experience the unique pleasure of taking full control of this slim 43+- gram balsa and carbon fiber model directing flight straight into thermals effortlessly.  The Feather² was designed with simplicity in mind, using under chambered airfoil section, super thin trailing edge reversed d-box design to make the model more sensitive to weak thermals . Using 10 airfoil ribs along each wing panel, with the last two foils slightly modified for a slight wing twist change (washout) allowing for better lateral airflow, this improves energy retention and over all provides a floaty aircraft, putting a whole new meaning to “rising to the occasion”. Practically unbreakable, the Feather’s ultralight signature weight and carbon fiber reinforcements allows for even the hardest crash landings without a single scratch or dent.

The Feather² Squared glider comes with laser cut ribs, laser cut tail feathers ( rudder & elevator ), laser cut control horns and launch peg housing. Main boom is carbon fiber, with carbon fiber pushrods, carbon fiber leading edge  and carbon fiber main wing spars. Both tail feathers have  pre-cut control horn slots and hinge line.

No other radio control glider this size and scale will perform like the Feather² Squared. At a tender weight of 43-47 grams, attractive design with built-up wing ribs, catching thermals at your local park has never been easier. Flying the Feather² glider can be a very peaceful and relaxing experience. Gliding at slow speeds gives stability and plenty of time to react.

To cover the balsa ribbed wings on the Feather² Glider, light weight colored tissue paper is used. Included in the kit you will find 4 white pieces to cover both wing panels and random trim colors for counter balance and esthetics. These are .8 grams per sheet ( 4x = 3.2grams ). Your other options are Esaki Japanese Tissue or Gampi Japanese Tissue, these are .6 grams per sheet ( 4x = 2.4grams).

The Feather² Squared is a high performance discus launch micro F3k glider packed into a micro size floater. The perfect size trunk glider easy to carry that will soar in virtually any terrain. Over 40 minutes of continues flight on a single 1s 150mAh lipo battery.

Optional wing covering method
If you live in a humid environment or simply want stronger structural wings,  alternative method to cover your glider wings can be  light weight lamination e.g Solite film. This will increase the weight of the glider by +- 3 grams but will provide additional protection and strength.  You can purchase Solite Film here.
To cover the wings of your glider, a heat iron can be used. Mini heat irons work best with variable heat adjustment. Few brand names to choose from that may be purchased from ebay or amazon are:
Clover Mini iron ii
Mini plancha para patch
Mini-Bügeleisen MB-3415
Ming Yang sealing tool
Large heat iron/sealing iron will work as well, make sure to use low heat. Both irons must have cloth sock on head to prevent iron from sticking to lamination film. Regular cotton sock can be used.

this feather glider is a gem

This feather dlg is by far the best glider plane yet considering it has no ailerons. Most glider planes have both ailerons and rudder , but this ultralight dlg needs no ailerons, she says afloat days on end. this feather is incredibly light weight and super easy to control, even easier to build, what a gem.

Many thanks

i am very happy with my purchase, Mr. Lee has been of great help getting my feather in the sky, a hiccup on my end from gluing the guide rods to the push rods, but finally she flies and very gracefully. many thanks from Main

Love my Owl

what a fantastic little flyer, i would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful little toy for this old man Benny

Another fantastic product form microbirds. They really stepped it up with their micro line of RC. This is a great little back yard flyer indeed, Great customer support and spares availability ( I crash a lot). If this is the future of the company, they are going in the right direction with their unique air ships.
After the initial setup it’s flight is easy and responsive. It flew very stable in a light wind but prefers no wind at all and remember to use as little travel adjust on rudder especially because the controls are very sensitive and you need very little joystick movement to make the owl turn. in fact too much travel and your owl will be out of control, just a side note.

fun

i am almost 80 years of age with a life time of radio control experience. I am very pleased with your beautiful design of the feather glider. Although i can not launch this glider very high due to my lower back lumbar pain, but i am having extensive and long flights over at the embankment right next to our home here in Tennessee.
