Rasant from Robbe


The current model is a tribute to the legendary Robbe original of the early 70s and has been carefully modernized so as not to destroy the charm and character of the model, but still meet the increased requirements of more modern times. Like back then, the new edition is available in two versions. On the one hand in the classic drive version for glow ignition engines with approx. 3.5ccm, on the other hand for electric drive, but in a more modern design as 1977 for the current, more powerful brushless drives in conjunction with Lipo battery. Especially the "Speed" version with the outward tapered wing looks visually dynamic and underlines the claim of a speed model of its time. Excerpt from the 1977 Robbe catalog:
"A model for advanced RC pilots who want to get involved in show flying without spending a lot of money, or who want to experience the thrill of "speeding" for their own pleasure.

This new edition comes exclusively with packaging box in the design of the 70s!

Note: The model is not an uncompromising high-speed model by today's standards! It comes from a generation many decades back. However, the flight characteristics are still a guarantee for speedy flying and offers uncomplicated handling in comparison. In addition, the design offers a wide field for modifications and tuning. Not least because of this, the Rasant was already a popular model in the 70s, for example, to install his own drive variants. Some modelers even installed a 6.5cc glow ignition engine with resonance tube. The flight performance was brute, but required corresponding careful and prudent handling in construction and also in flight operation, since the model was not designed then as well as today. The brushless drive we recommend is a successful compromise. As a combustion engine, especially engines of the 25 class such as OS MAX 25FP for real "retro pilots" or their current successors from today's time prove themselves.
