For the month of September 2014, every 10 KST DS245S or DS245H servos you buy (can be mixed together) in the same order, you will receive 1 extra servo FREE!
We have been testing the DS245S and H servos made by KST both in the shop and in planes, and we’ve been very pleasantly surprised by these servos. Their gear train is tight with no slop, great torque and speed, and good centering, PLUS it in a very thin package at only 8mm. The S version has the Standard tabs what can be used for securing into your servo tray. The H version has the Horizontal tabs, which for the first time, allows you to secure your wing servos with screws in your DLG. Within the ArmSoar family, the Aerial can fit 4 of the KST 245S servos by raising the servo tray height by approximately 1mm, done by laminating a thin piece of balsa over the pre-molded tray.
I had some discussions with the owner of KST and they are working really hard at bringing out several servos really suited for DLG applications, and this is one of their first ones in this role. With a good product and pricing, good service, and goals in achieving something truly stand-out for the DLG community, I really recommend these servos for guys looking for something nice to put into their next machine.

After some fun experiences with the customs in Poland with the molds, and then a little bit of a hiccup with the customs in Hong Kong with the fuselages, we finally got our first batch of the Short fuselages!!!
Take a look, what do you think?
Pricing will be the same, we will update the info onto our Aerial page later today, watch out for it!
We are pleased to say that we have placed our first order of a dozen of the FW6 from Podivin Composite Modellbau even before it was announced publicly today!!
Be one of the first to get yours on this interesting plane from a big name like PCM. Why interesting you say? They have taken the recent explosion of planes with ~20dm^2 of wing area and put a new twist on it. Instead of Reducing the area by increasing the wing aspect ratio, they have done so by decreasing the wingspan by 60mm. There are several advantages to this according to PCM: reducing yaw inertia to increase launch height; better structure with a lower AR wing; improve agility and circling characteristics; and broader wingtips than the high AR planes resulting in good natured flight behavior.
In similar fashion to many of the current planes, the wing is built from full carbon, with a solid Rohacell core. The fuselage is a cross between the FW4 and 5, with a slip-on nose that reveals 2 servos on either side of the nose. Easy access and maintenance! The tails are now installed in standard configuration, with a solid Rohacell core and full carbon skins.
There are two layups, the standard which has a wing made of the 39gsm Carboline, with an AUW of ~250g, and a light version with the wings made of the 26gsm Carboline, with an AUW of ~240g.
The page for the FW6 will be ready in a few days. In the mean time, please send us an email to save yours first and be one of the first to fly the FW6!!!

Good news comes in pairs!! With huge pleasure I am pleased to announce that ArmSoar Composite Gliders will be the distributor for the Vortex 2 in the Asia Pacific area. Last year during the World Championships, I had the chance to spend some time together with Dennis to talk about what’s been brewing in the Vortex workshop. I was impressed, and now that the production model is available, I am very excited to be able to help bring this gem to the pilots in the APAC region.
With professional experience with CNC mills, the Vortex team has been able to create molds beyond the standards you normally see to produce these planes. Fit and finish is second to none.
Sporting a higher aspect ratio wing, full carbon skins, and a solid Rohacell core, the Vortex 2 is a launch monster with stiff and durable wings. With a number of strong pilots turning to the Vortex 2 in recent competitions in Europe, it seems that it has won the favor of those who have had the chance to see it perform. Already with wins under its belt within such a short amount of time, the model has the Vortex team working hard to produce more of this beauty for all us pilots.
The first Vortex’s should be making its way to us soon, and with luck, you will see a bunch of them at the upcoming Asia Pacific Open from Oct 1st to Oct 6th, held in Sanshui, China.
As a sweet incentive for the APAC crew, the first 20 planes sold will be gifted a FREE set of ballast and bags. The page for the Vortex 2 will be ready in a few days.

The CX4 is now available as a top-drive kit, produced by one of the top DLG producers in Europe to Roland’s design, the quality and performance of the plane is second to none.
There are 2 main layups for the CX4: D-Box and Carbon. An option is available to upgrade the wing core to the super high density Rohacell material, and another option to upgrade the tails to the super high density Rohacell core. Stock, the CX4 TD runs the popular pull-spring setup, nice and light, and easy to install. Alternatively, you can choose to purchase the pull-pull mechanism kit to actuate the tails as Senior does it.
