Finally we are able and proud to offer KARAT biplane painted from the FALCON-factory. We completely reworked the scheme and the masking that we now ready for a small “series production”. The layout is my colorscheme and the colors can be choosen without extra cost. Also own schemes are possible!
The new color combination purple / green is my personal ” RT 2020 version”
Information and pricing on request!
The first two airplanes are painted in China and going to the customers soon.
The green version is coming to Germany and before I hand it over to the customer, I will upload some detail pictures.
The delivery of series product of Acrostar XL has started and here are some additional tipps / information.
The wing tube which is included in the kit, was changed due to my wish. More specifically the wall thickness has been enlarged to get a stronger tube. The new tube is also used by the manufacturer for another airplane. So It could be possible that you need to cut the tube around 10mm.
I recommend to modify the tail wheel as shown on the picture. Just one washer and no lock-nut between the bracket and the wheel.
If you use long servo arms, it is useful to install the ball link below the servo arm. Otherwise the ball-linkage will touch the servoarm if you have big deflections.
I recommend to tape all control surfaces with flexible, transparent surgical tape.
The result is a much better effect of those functions.
Since last week Acrostar mk2 XL is finally in stock at Hacker Motor.
The delivery has been started and I looking forward to receiving the first feedbacks from the customers.

I followed the invitation from the secretary of state Baden-Württemberg, Volker Schebesta, to the new castle of Stuttgart on 11th of November. Sportswomen and sportsmen from more than 500 various sports classes were invited. All who achieved a podium ranking in 2018/2019 season in European or World Championships. My invitation was for the bronce medal on the 2018 European F3A Championship in Belgium.
In the white room of the castle the ceremony for athletics, bikers, boatmen… and aeromodellers too part! Besides me was one more rc-pilot. Marcus Haussmann, reigning F4H World Champion (scale class). I was happy to meet one more like-minded so we shared the experience together.
In small groups we went on stage to receive the gift from the president of the sports committee Baden-Württemberg, Mrs Menzer-Haasis.
After the official part during snacks we had the chance to meet and talk to more interesting people and exchange our experiences in our sport and events.
I was very pleased about this honor and want to thank the state of Baden-Württemberg for the event!
It all started when I was a boy with the Graupner MC-24 gold from my father. I thought it´s a cool and beautiful radio. That time I already knew I want such a transmitter someday!
Almost 15 years later I hold a JETI duplex DC-24 in my hands, with almost each part and switch 24-carat gilded. Probably the worlds one and only DC-24 with such a finishing. The name: DC-24K.
„When modern carbon meets classy gold to end up in world’s finest radio.“
But until I had it in my hands, it was a very long way. It took more than one year until the radio was completely finish. I think with the gold color it describes the quality and valence of this product best.
"Before gilding all aluminum parts, they have to be polished to a high level gloss and after that galvanic nickel-plated.
The quality of the aluminum polish is decisive for the final result. Finally the galvanic 24 carat gold plating takes place."
Only with the support of good friends we could realize this exclusive unique masterpiece.
Therefore a special thank you to: Lenka, Hendrik, Jörg, Jürgen, Jakub and JETI model!
Here are a few pics of this event.
