Dandy from Graupner


The beginner's model from the 1960s is now available as an almost-ready-to-fly model. The dimensions and paint scheme of the model were taken over from the original DANDY of 1968. Thanks to its low weight, the model has very good thermal soaring flight characteristics. The two-section fixed wings are fastened to the fuselage by means of rubber bands. Batteries can be changed easily by removing the cockpit canopy. With the components shown, the electric version with motor mount can easily make flights lasting hours, even without thermal lift.
