Very nice Jurgen,

I suppose we can look forward to some serious Kontronik power in this one then (1.5m or 60" span)

Would you believe this model was designed for a geared Speed 400? Jürgen

Jurgen,

I've seen a geared 400 as recommended power for the FVK Bandit - but of course, that's no indication of what really goes in them

Hi John,

Well, the bandit weighs only half as much, is much smaller and has no landing gear. Jürgen

The drive-units come complete with alu-spinners. They are indeed very nicely machined and weigh about 22g ( 0.77 oz). They fit the Graupner Slim Prop 9x5", but also the APC 9x5" prop. Jürgen
