We have listened to our customers and are proud to introduce the Pug2 Micro DLG.
Retaining the same dimensions and outlines we have refined the Pug to fly better, look better, to build better, to reduce sanding and totally revised the canopy hatch.
Our prototype weighs in at 91g ready to fly with a full decal set, and we just do not think it needs to be any lighter at all..
The most striking changes are:
(1) 1.5mm carbon rod trailing edge, this enhances the appearance, improves the wings overall strength and most importantly allows us to refine the wing section for even more efficient flight.
(2) Resin Printed Horizontal Stab mount, pushrod guides, canopy retainer and Wing hold down brackets. The wing hold downs encapsulate a 3mm steel nut and completely eliminate the requirement to manually drill, tap and harden the threads in the previously used plwood plates.
(3) Totally new canopy hatch, using a tongue lip at the front and a 6mm double magnet catch at the rear, eliminates the need for tape of flexing of the hatch to pop it on and off.
In addition to the structural design changes we now include an option RES fin in the kit for those who wish to bungee launch or fly from the slope rather than to use the Pug as a DLG. Gentle side arm launches are still possible with this fin set, but not intended for high power DLG launches.
There is also an optional V tail available as an add on. The V tail is a great solution for Slope flying and Bungee (not suitable for DLG) and for a striking different look
