With so many people trying to derail this thread, it is plain to see that Graupner's promises are enough to give the shakes to vendors and fanboys of other systems.

I know this wasn't your intent, and you probably had no idea when you posted.

It is a sad day. Herr Graupner was truly an innovator. I have owned many Graupner products and was always impressed with the quality and value of the product.

I can not believe this. Hans was such a great man. What a wonderful sense of humor he had! I will miss that at the trade shows in Germany. I have such great memories (and luckily pictures) of my time with Hans and his wife (my German teacher..ha!). He will be missed.

Was Hans Graupner still running the company. Somehow, I thought he retired years ago.

Sadly, Hans Graupner officially retired from management just two weeks ago.

Sorry, didn't know Mr. Graupner himself passed away. R.I.P. But my statement didn't target the person Graupner, it was the company. And my experience with the company! in the last 5 years as a dealer and as a customer was terrible. So we surely will miss the pioneer Mr. Graupner but not his company in it's momentary condition. And the fact they're nearly closing doors shows I'm not alone with my experience.

One guy got his radio and will make test flights at the weekend.
He posted some pictures, which you probably cannot see unless you are registered here:

First temperature tests by a German user showed that a HoTT RX stopped working at 109 deg F.

Maybe it was too HoTT for this RX.

This reminds me somehow of my early Futaba 6014 FS RX's.
