For Sale
1/3 Grunau Baby 2b 4.5 meter

Up for sale is this Grunau Baby I picked up several years ago. This was a limited edition CNC style kit not available any more and not built by me. The model has a modern Quabeck airfoil and flies very nice, as i recall the weight is around 22 pounds and it has tons of wing area so the wing loading is pretty light. The model has what I call a very vintage patina to it. It is covered in Sig Koverall which is very strong and rigid. Includes the custom fitted wing bags that I have on all my models which are parachute type nylon with 1/2 inch foam sewn inside them, there are 2 wing bags, a stab bag and a rudder bag as well. It has brand new dual 5 cell Nicads and includes a JR 921 2.4 receiver so this a bind and fly model. Hitec servos throughout. It also includs a nice crate to store ans hip the model. Price does NOT include the Axel pilot although he may be available as a package deal with the model.

The model is a bargain at $1900, much better than the Chinese versions out there. Any questions, PM me or call Dennis at cell 310-930-9904
