WP ME Graupner Silver Taifun ARF

Hi all,

I have to relist the silver taifun since I have an extra one. Any one interested, really nice scale subject, comes with retracts and rivets already in place. Heres a description from the web site:

"The model is of conventional built-up all-wood construction. The wells for the retract units are built into the wing panels as standard. For safety reasons the two elevators are actuated separately. The rudder and elevators are operated using the DSS system, while the ailerons and landing flaps are driven by servos installed immediately adjacent to them, guaranteeing slop-free linkages. For goodcontrollability on the ground, e.g. for taxi-ing to the take-off position, the tailwheel is linked to the rudder and is fully steerable. The cowl is moulded in GRP and is supplied pre-painted. The Me 108 can be flown and landed very slowly if the landing flaps are lowered. Completing the model requires only a few minor tasks: the builder has to join the wing panels and glue the tail panels to the fuselage. Thecanopy is supplied in the pack already trimmed. The fuselage, wings and tail panels are factory-built and film-covered."

RC functions
