German based R/C company Pichler Modellbau have announced four new products – more information below or at Pichler’s website: http://www.pichler-modellbau.de/.
“The new Tiger Moth from Pichler Modellbau is available in three different color schemes (red, yellow or blue). The ARF model is factory built and expertly covered with a wingspan of 1400 mm. Due to its compact dimensions, the Tiger Moth can be transported in fully assembled status within most cars. We took special care to maintain the well-behaved flying characteristics of the full sized original plane. The Tiger Moth was designed from the ground up as an electric model. Brushless motor BOOST 40 from Pichler Modellbau is the power set of choice. The model is now available for €239”
“Pichler Modellbau is always supporting the beginners and people that are new to the hobby. The new Balsa kit model Quicky Kit is available as “Fox” or “Graunau”. These are easy-to-build airplanes made of balsa wood with a wingspan of 1200 mm. The model has the famous Jedelsky airfoil and does not need any covering. To build this model within 60 minutes, a flat table and some glue is all you need. The gliding characteristics of the model are so good that Pichler decided to offer an R/C kit as well as a electric power set. If you want, you can upgrade the airplane to a radio controlled R/C model. The Balsa Quicky Kit costs €39.95 and is now available in stores.”
“The new clamp meter from Pichler Modellbau highlights the function with not only an AC but also with DC functionality. This allows you to measure the power of your brushless electric motors as well. It is an ideal buy for the modeler and costs €59.95”
“With the new BOOST 45 Brushless motor, Pichler Modellbau is expanding its range of engines. The BOOST 45 closes the gap between the BOOST 40 and BOOST 50. The motor is 54 mm long and 35 mm in diameter, the weight is 185 g. It can be operated on 3 to 5S LiPo batteries and has a specific idle speed (KV) of 700 (RPM per minute / volt). A 60 A brushless controller such as The PICHLER XQ-60 is recommended. The motor is available for €69. A Combo-Set including matching ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) and programming card is offered for €139”
