Designed to satisfy the aspiring sport pilot as well as the experienced 3D pilot the HoTTrigger 1400 will not disappoint with its flight performance. Designed around the NACA 63-A-mod the HoTTriger has a wide flight envelope that can take you from slow flight to high speed in a controlled and safe way.
Made out of SOLIDPOR© the HoTTrigger is strong and can take a beating. Flight performance and strength is further enhanced with seamless control surfaces attached to the main wing and elevator further ensuring a streamlined design with minimal drag.
The wings are attached to the fuselage with a special locking mechanism making assembly at the field easy while also securing the wings during flight.

HoTTrigger 1400 Sport 3D
Model went together very easy. Fit and finish was excellent. Snap on wing brackets work very well.
Took 20 minutes to assemble the plane, but 4 hours to put on all the decals (stickers). Instructions printed on back of box are awkward, they should be included in the tech manual. Pilot figure was missing, but when I checked with Graupner USA, was told it did not come with one, although the inclusions printed on the instructions said a pilot was included. Graupner is sending out a pilot figure N/C when they get some. Have not flown the plane yet, because the canopy glues on after the pilot is installed and can not be removed without risk of damage, so waiting on pilot to finish assembly. Control surface hinges are solid and heavy duty, not foam hinges. Control horns are double horns and all control rod connections are ball links. Excellent design and very well built.

Excellent build quality. I have not had a chance to fly it yet, due to weather.
I painted some parts of mine metallic blue and left the stickers out for now. Painting is still work in progress. I think it looks alright so far (pic attached).
Graupner: Great job on the painting! Enjoy the rigger, its a great flying airplane.

I got a HotTrigger 1400 about six months ago and I love it! It's the best 3D "foamy" I've flown so far. I've been flying for less than a year, and I'm still enjoying my first one. But at the sale price of $169.90, I had to buy a second one to put in my garage "just in case". I'm sure the new "Competition" version will be awesome!
