IAGO is a modern 1-meter DLG that is provided by Nikolay Gorban from High Quality with an exceptional flying performance for a very reasonable price.
This model is an updated version of Hawk DLG and features a nose cone to access a fuselage pod interior, unlike the Hawk which has a hatch canopy.
IAGO is available in two spread carbon layups – regular and light.
The fuse of this model is made as a combination of 2.4GHz friendly glass fiber on the front and carbon on the tail. So it is light and stiff, however, allows pilots to run their Rx antennas internally.
The nose is designed to fit in all 4 servos in the pod. Considering the overall small size of the model, the pod has enough space for them, but you will need some basic building skills to assemple the model.
The tail construction is very similar to the full-size DLGs with a removable horizontal stabilizer mounted underneath the tail boom. All the parts are molded which ensures the shiny surfaces, exceptional stiffness, and light weight.
The wing construction features a solid CNC-cut foam core with glass or carbon fiber layup. It comes almost-ready-to-go, with the pre-hinged ailerons and shiny graphics.
The model comes with a complete accessories pack including the launch peg, control horns, torque springs for tails, pull wires, and a servo tray.
