Hallo Mitja,

Today was the maiden flight of the Marabu.
The weather was fine in the morning, the wind was 2 bft and sunny.
Henk was also on the field and he brought his Marabu in transparant red.
Fine airplane.
At first Henk launched the red Marabu and I could look at his flying profile.
After the landing my white/red marabu was inspected by Henk and all was OK.
I started and the marabu was flying briljant and no trims were necassary.
Three flights were made today and all went well.
Beautiful plane and it flyes great.

Thank you De Charel, for wonderful news from Netherlands! Very nice pair of Marabu 2 planes!
I wish you both many happy flights!

I am happy to hear you find out a time to fly your Marabu!

I fly my at least twice a week. On working day I usually choose late evening, when wind is gone and sun is hidden behind the hoziront.

slotted flaps


Hallo Mitja,

I'm really mesmerized with the elegance of your Marabu II.

I have bashed a kadet senior kit adding ailerons and flaps and, same as you do, I always use flaps for take off and flight, not just for landing.

I have hand made slotted flap, and my question is: do you think a slotted flap could increase the already spectacular fligth charaterstics of Marabu II?

I bet you are so smart with cnc you could easily find the way

on my youtube aliraminghe, you can see the kadet senior that weights at least 500 grams more than a Marabu II with a 197 cm span and the yellow locamp that weigths at least 2000 grams more with 227 cm span both with a 4S 5000 mAh

Thanks in advance for your attention

Hi folks, mine Marabu2 is on the way to be done. I am currently working on the wing D box. So, I would like to try to finish mine until the spring.
So, where hinges like Mitja used on his Marabu2 can be purchased online?
