Strike from Kavan


The new STRIKE DLG will easily fulfil your dreams about a handy model you could fly virtually anywhere. About a model you could pack for your trips that would work with even the most basic four-channel radio - quite just like our CUMUL DLG. Compared to the CUMUL, the STRIKE is larger and features aileron control. Yet with little effort, it will still fit the 250g limit. And do not forget - this RC hand launch glider will get you in shape in no time - the thoroughly performed discus launch is quite a sporty feat as well!

An RC hand-launch glider kit is a great thing for anybody who wants to build their models by themselves the old-fashioned way with balsa, plywood, sticks and a few carbon composites. The building is easy and goes forward quite nicely. STRIKE DLG may not be an ideal very first model for a newcomer without any previous experience, but if you have built at least “something of balsa and sticks”, you should not have any problems. There should be no problems mastering the discus launch once your STRIKE DLG is ready to fly as well - we included a thorough illustrated appendix showing how it is done in the instruction manual.

This builder’s kit of a high-performance RC hand launch glider is a perfect project for a modeller wanting to build a really good for sporty and “Sunday“ flying. The well-thought design with CNC-cut interlocking parts fitting together like jigsaw puzzle pieces makes the building a breeze. The ribs and riblets are supplied with jig tabs allowing building the wing (featuring an under-cambered profile) directly on a flat working surface - and all that with a built-in washout!

The front part of the fuselage is a simple „box“ of balsa sides, top and bottom sheets and plywood formers and braces. The servo and battery compartment is located in the front part under the removable hatch with a magnetic lock. The tail boom is a carbon tube with liteply pylon for the horizontal tailplane. The tow hook for the bungee launch is also included in the kit.

The one-piece wing sports the YA0801 wing section (“tailored” to the needs of RC hand launch gliders) is off, now we can say classic, design with CNC-cut balsa ribs, carbon tube main spar and beech dowel leading edge for high strength at very low weight. The full-span ailerons are controlled by two servos installed in the wing. The wing is secured to the fuselage with a plastic bolt. The discus launch pin can be installed on the left wing tip (for right-handed pilots) or to the right wing tip (for left-handed pilots).

The empennage is made of CNC-cut balsa sheets with balsa and carbon reinforcements. The elevator and rudder are controlled by servos located in the fuselage with piano wire push rods running through the tail boom.

You can use an iron-on film for covering - lightweight Oralight® or similar materials are preferred.

You will need at least four channel radio to control your STRIKE DLG. A computer radio is preferred; it will allow setting aileron differential, airbrakes as well as mixes making the discus launch much easier. Good 6 g micro servos (0.7–0.9 kg­·cm torque) are required for the ailerons, elevator and rudder; the servo trays supplied in the kit are tailored to the KAVAN GO-6MG servos.

1S 3.7 V 500–600 mAh LiPo battery would make a great receiver battery.

Although I do my best to complete this library, you may not find the model you are looking for.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
