HLG Trotter is constructed and designed by a well-known HLG Croatian team which has promoted the model on various competitions and has won many medals. Furthermore, it has also been presented in a lot of popular magazines.

All parts of the kit are cut on laser to achieve very easy and fast assembly. This kit is recommended to beginners who are not familiar with model construction. It can be finished in literally 2 days.

Classic HLG Trotter has 1.5m (59.1") wingspan, total model weights is approx. 200 grams (7 oz). Wing is constructed with ribs reinforced with carbon strips, hybrid carbon-kevlar D-Box and some additional reinforcements which gives extremely strong and lightweight wing.
Fuselage is entirely made of carbon fiber, the part where components lie on is made of fiber glass reinforced with carbon fiber, and the nosecone is made with kevlar.

Wing airfoil is S4083 and it makes Trotter ideal for thermal sailing, it catches even the slightest thermals which gives it excellent flight characteristics.

Due to its simple construction, it is very easy to fly and we recommend it as an introduction to model flying not only to beginners but also to more experienced modelers.

Model can be launched with bungee start or simple hand-thrown.

It is usually covered with Oralight covering foil. It is the best option to cover the model, since it is very light and has great characteristics.

To fly HLG Trotter, transmitter with 2 channels and V-mixer is required.
