For Sale – Bergdfalke Mk4

Scratchbuilt 1/4 scale Bergdfalke Mk 4

4.3m wingspan comes complete with all 7 servos .

This highly accurate model took 18 months to design and build and is is for sale along with the original scale documentation folder.  It features the proven HQ 35 airfoil section, scissor action airbrakes and is a superb model to fly.  In its day it won a number of national scale competitions.

The model has been stored for a little over 10 years since it last flew, as I turned to flying paraglides.  There is some superficial discolouring on some of the surfaces but no more so than a full size glider would have, so actually looks quite realistic.

£250
