Graupner Der kleine UHU

Post by MaxZ »

I have always been interested in this charming little glider. I never had one, but as there is an emerging Vintage scene here in NL, I decided this is the time to catch up with it. The original is FreeFlight, but I designed and built a RC-version. Not flown yet, but I'm about to. Here's a few pics:

Hi Max. Nice looking model , how are you going to launch it? Tow, bungee, throw, slope?

I hope it flies as good as it looks.

Cheers

For now, throwing only for trimming. We'll see how it goes, I may even build a small electric winch.........

Max, I have resized your nice pictures to be under 1 Mib in the effort to save space on the server, Cheers, Tobe

Nice job there Max, 👏
Small models have their fascination and for that purpose I have designed a small nRF24L01 Rx, the green one, slightly smaller than the old OrangeRx Micro, the blue one shown here with the removed orange shrink

This one runs nicely on 1s
