Get ready for some spectacular short take off and landings
with the Graupner Husky 1800. Whether you fly from grass, dirt, water or snow
the Husky 1800 will be airborne in no time just like the full size Aviat Husky.
The included Tundra wheels will ensure smooth take-offs from
rugged terrain and with the optional ski’s or floats you will own a true
allrounder airplane that can be flown from different terrain conditions and
even at night with the included ultra-bright navigation, strobe and landing
lights. If you are into towing sailplanes the included tow assembly mechanics
will let you tow sailplanes up to 2 meters in wingspan (requires separate servo).
Made from SOLIDPOR® the Husky 1800 has the fit and finish
you are used to see from Graupner. The control surfaces are recessed in the
wings resulting in a visually appealing look combined with the strength you
need to fly your maneuvers and nail down your landings.
Attaching and locking the wings is easy with the proven lock
mechanism that requires no screws or tools. This will make the Husky 1800 easy
to transport and setup at the field. All you need is a 4S 2200 mAh battery
which ensures sufficient thrust and flight time. The Husky 1800 comes with all
the electronics installed and all servos are already connected to the control
surfaces. Any six-channel radio will be sufficient to operate and fly the
The scale appearance of the Husky 1800 does not take away

The Husky flies well and can take a beating. All of my crashes that broke items such as the spar, motor shaft, struts and 2 servos have been from flat spinning into a landing after loosing power. my recommendation is to replace the aileron servos with metal gear servos (flaps are up to you) and replace the esc with one of the telemetry escs. Build quality is very high and goes together rather easily.

The Husky arrived at my home in perfect condition - the kit was well packaged. The overall finish of the plane is excellent, all it does not look like a foam airplane. The assembly of the plane is very straight forward with no surprises. The part fit is excellent and all parts were included. A very nice touch for the kit is the included Tundra tires with axles. The look with the stock tires and wheel pant is nice, but the tundra tires look best. The graphics are pleasing - I was provided with three sets of graphics for the Husky. I went with the red for best visibility for me. The others were really nice, but I liked the red best. There are no servos, motor, esc to install, it is all done by the factory. I would have to supply a servo if I decided to install the glider release, which I did not. The kit comes with a prop, prop adapter and spinner. After the initial flight I replaced the prop with a 12 x 6 as the performance with the 13 x 4 I did not feel was very good. I used a 4c 3000 maHa LiPo for power. The plane balanced on the mark with the battery inserted in the compartment touching the rear bulkhead. I like the strut attachment, which is simple and secure. I did find getting the wing on, maneuvering the strut, getting the servo wires out of the way cumbersome ( not impossible, but a third hand would help). Flying the plane was disappointing. I found the plane very mushy, particularly in making turns (I used coupled ailerons and rudder) and it lacked response. If you are new to the hobby and have assistance it would be a good choice. However, if you are a flyer it may not be your best choice. I have given the plane three stars for the completeness of the kit, finish, and overall quality.
