30 Year Old Graupner Still Flying

Print this articlePrint this article
by Roger Mullins Keystone Heights FL Here is old Graupner kit form 30 plus years ago, given to me by the owner. The graupner is missing the tail feathers and some other minor parts. I converted the aircraft to electric power and added slotted flaps. The graupner's span is 62 inches and the aircraft weights nearly 7 lbs ready to fly. Overall this 30 year old graupner flies very realistic and a lot of fun to shoot touch and goes with those big flaps.

A beauty after 39 years. Interesting flaps. Great photo!
