Default robbe flying wing

years ago bought a robbe flying wing off a friend it had fiberglass fus and also had a pod you could bolt or band on to the top of the wing that had a small engine.
Years have past and the plane was destroyed in a crash and i would love to get anther but i dont no the name of the kit though for some reason i think it was called robbe gier but cant be too sure. has anyone got one or a picture as id love to build this kit. the crash was caused by a control rod on the left airleron breaking at the clevis and it just went intoa spin from about 200 foot so you can imagine the mess. any info would be helpfull

I see that you are out of the UK. The website comes from the UK. Check around and see if you can find one. The pictur is off the web from a gentleman that built the model. Would be worth it, if it has meanig for you. I am sure that someone out there would more then likely have one stashed some where. I ahve seen them come up on e-bay ever once in a while too.

Hi there. Is anyone still wathcing this thread?

I picked up a complete unstarted kit complete with instructions and plan.

Was wondering how it would fly..

The plastic bits are mint. I was going to make a mould off it and use a glass or carbon one to build the model..

Cheers Phil
