Vortex 4

Vortex 4

Vortex 4 is the new release from Ds Composites. After the Vortex 3 success, Ds Composites wanted to go one step forward in the dlg’s world.

The V4 is definitely a model that will impress you with its performance. We are testing and flying the model, as we always want to form our own personal opinions about our products and we can confirm that the plane’s performance is MEGA! As always, the glider’s quality is excellent, shiny and strong.

The VORTEX 4 is a completely new dlg:

◾️ New wing (new airfoils)

◾️ New fuselage

◾️ New tail

◾️ New T-peg

2 or 4 servo wing ?

Vortex 4 is available in two version, 2 servo wing or 4 servo wing:

  • A 2 servo wing provides a bit more simplicity in building and setting up as well as reduced weight for extremely light conditions.
  • A 4 servo wing provides better handling, higher efficiency when maneuvering and better control during landing. Overall, it is easier to fly clean and precise which translate to better climb rate for its weight. The 4 servo wing really shines in turbulent air and wind by climbing faster in the thermal.

Light, standard or strong?

The standard version is the best all-round layup, light enough for calm conditions and strong enough to carry ballast if needed. The light version will carry less ballast and come at a price of reduced durability. The strong version is the most robust and will take heavy ballast for the most extreme conditions.
