The graupner is made out of nasty foam :-)

The Topmodel has a glas fuselage, and covered wings.

Seems like a prop nut on the end of the motor? perhaps it needed the tail weight. Nice looking jet.

On a side note, i cam't believe they didn't offer the Hobby Lobby Mirage without motor and radio. Whao wants t use the included junk?? maybe someone who just learned to fly I guess but thats it. Sucks cause it looked cool.

I just checked out that site. Looks like it uses a pretty small motor and small 2200 battery. So, I am guessing its a 55-60mm fan size?

I like this one much more than the HL bird..

HL bird would be nice if you could get it without all the radio, etc..

They don't list the FAN as a required item, so it looks like it is included.
