The Graupner BO 209 Monsun is a replica of a two-seater sports aircraft made by Messerschmitt Bolkow. The docile flight characteristics of the original have been transferred to the model resulting in a visual appealing airplane with excellent flying qualities.
The BO 209 Monsun has excellent sport aerobatics flying capabilities and due to its large landing flaps, it facilitates very low, scale like landings. When installing the included aero-tow coupling the BO 209 Monsun can be used to tow glider models with a wingspan of up to 4.5 meters. The steerable nose landing gear gives the model excellent ground maneuverability for taxi and takeoff. Navigation lights are installed in the wingtips, making it easier to recognize the flight position of the model.
