Enter to Win! Hornet 250 Tri-Copter FPV - Graupner USA

Graupner has a new tri-copter that we are giving away. Read on to find out how to enter!


What Would You Name Your Graupner Hornet?

I was talking to the good folks at Graupner USA and we decided what RCGroups needed this month was a good contest! Mannie decided that the new Hornet FPV RTF 250 tri-copter would be something that might get our FPV users excited. The contest will run through November (exact dates below).

Here is a direct link to the unit that you might win.

Name Your Hornet

The contest question is, "What would you call your Hornet?" Maybe Henry the Hornet, or Triad, or something else. You tell us what you would name your Graupner Hornet if you win!

The Rules

Of course, no contest would be complete without some rules to follow, so here they are:

  • Post in this thread what you would call your Hornet tri-copter
  • You can enter up to 5 names.
  • No shipping outside of the continental United States at Graupner's request.
  • Contest will run for one month: 11/07/16 until 11/30/16.
