I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Graupner Elecktro Trainer

Post by Mark Barnes on 2011-10-22, 11:08

Thought I would share the progress on my new toy.

I was after somthing for Brandon to start with so when the chance came up to get a Graupner Elecktro Trainer I jumped at it. Picked it up last night and was greated with the normal bright and colourfull Graupner box



I then got quite exited at the thought of floats, and to my suprise they are included in the kit Twisted Evil



Open the lid and your greated by a nice bright sticker set and a very well packaged kit with a very low part count





Also included is one of the new Graupner Compact 345 Brushless motors and a 35A ESC



and finaly for now a quick test assembley
