“Der Kleine UHU” is a classic blast from the past designed for free-flight or RC sailplane. This model sailplane has been the springboard for many modelers into the fascinating hobby of airplane modelling. This is the ninth generation of the model after its introduction in 1950 and with this release we at Graupner hope that our younger generation will be stimulated again into building and experience the magic of flight.
The model has been enhanced and re-designed at many places while still retaining the requirements of the free-flight competition class.
This model has a bigger wing span designed with a lower wing drag design eliminating wing ribs and wingtips that increase stability. The free-flight model has a V-Tail with CAM control and separate trim tab. The flight performance has been significantly improved compared to the previous model and the new visual design is a real eye catcher.
The model can be built as a free-flight or RC model. Launching the model can be done with a hi-start launching device. When building this model with an RC system a basic 2-4 channel radio will be sufficient to control the model.
