Here in California, we have Grass. It's this green stuff that grows out of the grown. If you look around, you might find some of it under your snow.

Cool looking plane, Short! Did you cover it or was it an arf?

http://www.americanpioneerhobbies.com

this is the site that black horse do there super air from.

I'm really confused about this, since graupner is a german company is it possible that there english/american importer is called black horse or something.

Something is definatly up here :stupid:

this is a pisture of the blackhorse super air taken from sussexmodelcentre.co.uk, its the same model.
i never knew that graupner manufactured them but in a lot of cases with artf models different companies will sell the same model with a different colour scheme for a different price.

however, i test flew a blackhorse/graupner super air 2 weeks ago and it is a fantastic model with very little cross coupling on the rudder, snaps well and is generally a very nice pattern type model
