FUN, FAST AND FAMILY-FRIENDLY
You will have unlimited and un-breakable fun with the Graupner Leo Vector airplane. Our Vector airplanes are powered with specially-designed control units: small power drives that are easily installed and can be controlled with the mz-4 2-Channel Stick Vector Radio (or any Graupner 2.4GHz radio).
Assemble your Leo Vector airplane in minutes, slip the Vector control unit into the custom cut-outs in seconds, then charge and attach the battery for amazing fun! The Vector power drive is strong enough to withstand a good breeze so you can fly the Leo Vector airplane indoors or outdoors with grace and simplicity.
The Vector control unit is designed to work with any Graupner HoTT radio but has been specially developed for the Graupner mz-4 Vector Radio. The mz-4 is packed with options and features that ensures your Vector airplane will stay in perfect control. The compact, lightweight, single-hand design makes it easy for anyone to use and master.
Did we mention the Vector models are easy to fly? Yes, even a five-year-old can learn how to pilot a Leo Vector airplane with no worries of crashing -- our Vector planes are almost unbreakable! Constructed with extremely flexible foam that can withstand almost any crash, the Vector planes are ideal for beginners or small children.
The Leo Vector is priced so all your friends and family can easily obtain an entire fleet of his (Leo P/N 13301) and hers (Emma P/N 13302) airplanes at a reasonable cost. Or mix and match with the other model designs for a wild and crazy air show. There is no end to the fun with Graupner Vector planes.

Fun little plane and a great price!
Got this little guy over a year ago. Initially I was kind of disappointed with it because the motor seemed to barely have any power at all and it would hardly climb. I actually bought it to play with some rudder only simple glider projects anyway so I took the receiver/servo combo and put that into those projects. "Servo arms" that fit this unit are sold here on this website but I also found that a lot of the extra servo arms I had from my years in RC fit this servo anyway.
Then this week while researching other Vector projects that other folks have built I read on a German RC forum that another modeler said his model had very weak thrust until he realized he had the wrong propeller on it! Sure enough I was very careless with the propeller when I first tried the Leo out and I had the wrong propeller installed. The Vector comes with 2 propellers and the propellers can be mounted in different directions depending upon the type of model you are going to be flying (pusher, puller, motor running clockwise, motor running counterclockwise, etc.). The manual shows drawings explaining all of this but I apparently didn't do a good job of paying attention to it! Now that I have the proper propeller on at the proper direction this thing climbs great. Not climb straight up of course (that would be uncontrollable with a 2 channel model anyway) but plenty strong enough to fly the Leo around.
This is a light small model. It isn't intended to fly in a lot of wind. So be careful with that. It also isn't quite as maneuverable as a model with an elevator. But for the price the quality of the gear that you get with this little guy is outstanding. It also is uniquely ultra portable and this foam Leo plane is basically indestructible. You can easily take it back apart and the airframe being just some flat pieces of foam and the gear being basically a TV remote sized controller this thing can go anywhere.
Now that I have the propeller figured out I am dreaming up all kinds of fun projects to build for this powertrain.
