Flamingo 2006 Electro (Graupner/Tangent) instructions manual

Hello

I have just bought a Flamingo 2006 Electro CTE from Graupner / Tangent, and (first surprise!) the instructions are only in German.

Has anybody got a translation into English of this building instructions, or how to obtain them?

Many thanks in advance.

Hello Nacho,
Try contacting the dealer you purchased from.
Otherwise an email to Graupner or Tangent might help.
Usually you can figure things out from the illustrstions.Just keep studying.
I do have an old MPX Flamingo manual but it's from Way back when the wing was built up from balsa!Not any use to you.
Skies.

You can download the Flamingo instructions direct from the MPX site.

Yeah thats the one I have,builtup wings,twin blade style wing joiners,and bellcranks in the wing in place of servos.
Quite a bit out dated from the Flamingo 2006 Electro that Nacho has.

Guys, thank you very much for your help. I have sent a letter (e-mail address nowhere to be seen) to Graupner customer service in Germany. Hopefully they will give some positive answer!

Cheers!

Well, they have answered that the manual in English is in preparation. It seems that there are no manuals available in other language apart from German. Not very happy about it!

Why dont you try asking on this site for the bits you need translating? Scan them in and post them up. There are quite a few good German speakers on RCG.
Most instructions have about 10% usefull info...the rest is normally "dont fly your model in crowded areas type of stuff.
