Well, as a matter of fact, there’s no such thing as a package.
Buying that Flitz was some kind of boutique shopping experience. When I collected my preordered and prepaid pink sample at Insider Modellbau in Zollikofen near Bern, the staff guided me to some shelfs in the back of the shop:
These are the wings to choose from. Which one of these decoration patterns do you like best? – There you go. – Now, this fuselage here will match your wing. – Over there, we’ve got some stabilizers and fins in pink. – And don’t forget your accessories‘ purse … (Sorry, slightly exaggerated, but I just couldn’t help it).
This is what I got. The kit consists of:
- 1 wing, full carbon with Rohacell core, deco pattern pink, 97 g
- 1 fuselage, full carbon, 34 g
- 1 horizontal stabilizer, hard foam with carbon reinforcements, 3 g
- 1 fin, hard foam with carbon reinforcements, 3 g
- 1 small plastic bag containing bits and pieces, 9 g
Accessories & Fittings
The plastic bag mentioned above contains:
- rudder horn
- servo board
- wing servo cable connector
- rudder horn
- wing fastening screws, steel
- servo pocket covers
- launch peg anchor plate
- launch peg
- horizontal stabilizer fastening screws, nylon
- 1.2 mm steel rod (steering linkage ailerons)
Manual isn’t either.
The Insider guy shows me a built Flitzebogen 1, which is not far from a 2, indicating some potential pitfalls and areas in need of attention and special care. This helps a lot. For those requiring written advice, the manufaturer privides some building instructions (for the Flitzebogen 1) in the web and there is a forum on RC-Groups.
