REQUIRES ENGINE.....1.20/180 GLOW OR 26/43CC GAS OR ELECTRIC
This WW-1 style trainer,"Der Graf" is reminiscent of the early Fokker fighters, with its comma-shaped vertical stabilizer, parasol wing, round cowling and antique-style wheels. The "Der Graf" is capable of all the basic aerobatic maneuvers like loops, rolls and wingovers. Its take-off and landing characteristics are completely predictable and easy. A take-off roll of only 30 feet gets this big bird in the air, perfect for smaller flying fields! Combine the low operating costs of the gasoline ignition engine and you have an airplane that will become your favorite fun-flyer.
