The Graupner classic goes into the ninth generation. Since the 1950s "Der kleine UHU" has stood for classical wood construction and in many cases it laid the foundation for fascinating hobby model building and model sports. Here you can build, cut and paste according to your heart.
The UHU Holzleim glue as well as the most important tool, the ready-to-use grinding block, are already included in the package.

The ninth generation of "Der kleine UHU" continues to meet the guidelines of the "UHU" category, although the model is a completely new development.
The current version
The new "UHU" is the variant with the largest wingspan since the existence of this model series. The newly designed, particularly low-resistance wing have no support ribs. The winglets significantly increase flight stability. The free-flight model now has a V-tail, equipped with a curve control and a separate trim.
The flight characteristics of "Der kleine UHU" have been significantly improved compared to the previous model. The ninth generation is also a real eye-catcher and a visible advancement in terms of visual design. The fuselage, for example, has been deliberately conceived as a chest hull, so that the RC components could be installed in a space-saving and clean manner.
The ninth generation can be equipped with RC components (No. 4316.90). The free-flight model is highly capable. Due to the design, the already finished model can no longer be equipped with remote control components.
"Der kleine UHU" ensures a relaxing "deceleration" during assembly and flight. All components are made of natural material, only the tail boom and the wing joint are made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic.
You will find the recommended accessories as well as all instruments and products which are relevant for the construction under "Accessories".
