THE GAME-CHANGING TURBOPROP MODEL!
Beginning until mid of this year I was very busy due to my study. So I could not invest the time for aeromodelling as I wished to. But in the past weeks I worked up and finally after more than 1 year the new turboKARAT V2 was finished.
When my father flew turbo KARAT V1 he said “I need one”. So we shared the work and built 2 new turbo KARAT V2.
What has been changed from version 1?
– stronger and lighter turbine, now Kolibri T35
– special FIALA 5-blade wood propeller
– special exhaust pipes for the small turboprop
– all new colorscheme “bronce-NAVY”
– new Hacker / Ditex-EL Servos
– reworked LED-light-system from innoflyer
– reduced go-fly weight

SORRY, ONLY IN GERMAN!
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."
On saturday, 23rd of March, Mr. Hacker invited to his 20-year-jubilee of Hacker Motor in Ergolding.
A great event with famous guests, interesting guids through the company and an exhibition of their projects in RC-business and industry made this day to one of the highlights in 2019.
Even the weather was perfect with a deep blue sky and warm temperatures, maybe also a merit of the past 20 years.
What started in the loft of his families´ house is nowadays a mid-sized company with almost 40 employees and projects around the world.
For more than 10 years I am Pilot for Hacker Motor. Since my beginning I trusted in the products from Bavaria. When I look back, that was probably my best decision I made in my rc-career. I am more than proud to be part of this team since that long time.
For some time Hacker Motor is also the exclusive distributor in Europe for my RT DESIGN models- nothing better could happen to me!
At this jubilee last week we took the chance to introduce my latest design coming this summer the market: Acrostar mk2 XL – the big brother of our 6S successor came to the market last year.
(More information about this plane coming soon.)
Again congratulations to Rainer Hacker for 20 years of Hacker Motor GmbH!
I´m looking forward to the next 20 😉
After my tripto China in April, I had the chance to go there once more end of this year. In that time there was China´s biggest airshow which takes part every two years in Zhuhai. It was possible to spend one day at this event to check out some beautiful aircrafts and amazing flight displays.
From Zhuhai I went to some factories to check out their shop, the work and their airplanes. In that time we traveled over 2000 km with the car and train. Between the days in the factories I had the chance to spend one day together with Chinese F3A pilots on the airfield to fly and setup their planes.
At the end of my tour I spent three days in FALCON to see the latest stand of KARAT and gave a presentation to all workers involved in the project and informed them what happened in the past and what is next.
After nine exciting days in China I went back to Germany.
Here are a few pictures from my trip:
At the Rotor Live Helicopter fair in Iffezheim, I discovered for the first time the innoflyer light system, which was new in the product line of Hacker Motor. I became impressed by the innovative, simple and efficient handling. During dinner with Andreas Golla from Hacker and Christoph Raible from innoflyer we started speaking about my special project, the turbo KARAT.
As the Turboprop and the lighting are both from Switzerland, I decided to adjust the color scheme of the Ptrouille Suisse so it matches the KARAT.
The plane now has about 30 flights and everything still works fine.
At the end not the most spectacular plane I’ve ever built, but definitely one that I have the most fun with!
And just the worlds first F3A turboprop biplane – turbo KARAT.
Many thanks to Philipp Rösner for another great video of turboKARAT!
On the 18th of August JETI hosted the annual JETI model Meeting.
A few top pilots supported by JETI came to CZ for making the airshow interesting and diverting with many highlights.
Especially all those scratch build airplanes from the Czech pilots also taking part in the show are stunning and make it worth to join this event.
Martin Pilny made some really great snapshots of my Pilatus PC-21- thanks for them!
Thank you JETI model for the invitation and the awesome weekend!
I would like to introduce you a project I am part of.
It is the StickMover by AVIrem!
It looks like a radio, but this device is not sending. There are 4 digitalservos installed which are moving the 2 sticks.
What does StickMover do?
You are watching a video of a complex heli or airplane maneuver while holding the stick mover in your hands. Your fingers are on the sticks like on a real radio. While the video is running the StickMover moves the sticks synchronous to the maneuver in the video.
It shows exactly how to fly the maneuver in any speed you choose. You repeat this until you feel safe and ready to try it in real or in a simulator.
The StickMover “takes you by the hand” for every complex maneuver.
What has Robin Trumpp to do with it?
Next to the helicopter aces Eric Weber and Nico Niewind I am responsible for the airplane maneuvers in the programme.
The maneuvers are not created by a computer software, they are all flown with a lot of effort and diligence from real rc-pilots and embedded by the StickMover team to the AVIrem software.
Who is behind the StickMover?
Developed was it by Patrick Zajonc and Ulrich F. Beyle and is after 4 years almost ready for everyone. To make it available for you those 2 guys need your help!
Because the injection mold for making the case of the StickMover is very expensive.
Support the Kickstarter campaign from 15th of February and help to realize this project and get the StickMover to a special price.
DO IT FOR OUR HOBBY!!!
-in the Kickstarter campaign from 190€!
– all radio modes
– replay the videos in any speed (ultra Slowmo until realtime and even faster)
– continuously growing maneuvers
– special flights from events (Euro and World championships, airshows..) after it online and ready for “feel them”

Finally in our hands, the brandnew JETI DC-24 in special RT-edition gold/carbon!
Here are a few pictures from the production of this highend radio which I would like to share with you.
Not only the design also the features and the quality is unique, but convince yourself!
