While I would dearly love to join you and the Topsy at the annual single channel rally, I am afraid it would be a rather long and cold swim across the Atlantic, but I am certain you have chosen well and that you will end up with a fine flying model.

This plan was online at April 22, in: Promoting strength brings me on to another thread of my philosophy with this model. It is electric powered and even has FPV equipment on board woo-hoo! Was home on R and R over the weekend so Lindsay was able to take photos of my three latest builds from plans taken from your awesome site. If we discover that content is being stolen, we will consider filing a formal DMCA notice. Which is not quite the same thing. Sep 28, Any further ballasting which may be required will be done by nailing in ever bigger batteries I have a feeling that it may have been significantly more expensive and so could have been a bit of a rich kids’ toy.

Remember Me Forgot Password? I had originally written ‘any modifications’ but there are always modifications!!! In keeping with my normal modus operandi the first stage was to import the OZ pdf into DraftSight and begin the tracing.

The Topsy plans is supposed to be scaled correctly, a good way to be sure about this it to open it with adobe PDFreader and measure the parts checking if they fit together. On every listing you can visit the original website where you will be able to find more info for the given plan. Please see attached Graupner Topsy, a free flight model I built in the early ’70s which flew away [more pics ].

We’re the same age Col.

Tx was a Mcgregor “Crystal controlled” which sadly I don’t still have – but I DO have the one in the photos below, which, given our age difference I suspect may be the one you are lusting after. Maybe, but that wasn’t me, remember I had been earning a living since which was why I could afford “expensive” kits and escapements!

Tlpsy find that this not only allows me to make sure that graupnef ribs and formers actually correlate to the fus or wing plan ie get the notches in the right positions!

The flight characteristics of Topsy are good and the payload radio control can be up to the weight of the model itself. Sign up now to remove ads between posts. I used paper tissue and dope for covering and tried to keep the original colour scheme. All content is free to download for any use you topys.

Thank you very much for your great site! Yup, that’s the kiddy, George! Sifting through to find the single channel models, I was very tempted by Dave Platt’s Half Tone, but when I saw the Graupner Topsy, I felt that the design looked far more modern than and has to my eyes at least, very pleasing lines.

With graupnrr gear I do not believe that the completed model will be within a country mile of that max weight. This will change soon. Greets ; My site http: Oh yes, and from my experience you are on safe ground with the choice of model, my Topsy was a lovely performer.


Have more info on this plan?

Last edited by Colonel Blink; Sep 28, at A “rich kids” toy? That gives a payload equal to the weight of the model itself, and given graaupner it is only 32″ wingspan, would be fairly heavily loaded at max AUW.

JeffMac I’d rather be flying Supplementary files Sheet 2 of plan, plus English translation. So I started my research in the time-honoured fashion – ie I hit the Outerzone scene, man!

Graupner Topsy () for the YOBBO! – RC Groups

Just wanted to share my Graupner Topsy built from the plan on your site [more pics ]. The items required for installation are shown on the separate parts list Apart from the design work already done, another argument against enlargement is that a larger model with the same onboard radio and power gear is likely to be less wind resistant than at the original size.

Colonel the Topsy looks like a fine model and I’ll be watching your build This was built a few years ago, starting off as diesel free flight but now converted to electric rc. I share your enthusiasm for single channel, good Colonel. Weight is gram ready to fly. I considered following the tab and slot fus construction of the original, but I felt that as I was using a scalpel and ruler rather than a skilfully produced frame cutter for die crushing, the tabs would prevent me from using sanding block and engineer’s square to ensure accuracy; so I’ve gone with plain rectangular formers.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? Next chance I get, I shall post a little more about my intentions for the model. All content is free to download for personal use.
