Hallo Mary, hallo Steve. I think the picture is 30 years old [see more pics 003]. The builder is my friend "Volker Kirch". The Hi-Fly was powered by an electric engine.

Love the Website. Thanks! Hi-Fly? Had one in back in 1975. Fond memories. First flight off bungee? 27 minutes. Way to go. Hint to builders: Keep the wing covering tight, or at high speed the wing-tips will flutter! My Hi-Fly didn't disintegrate, but it was mandatory to re-tighten the solarfilm periodically. It is very tempting to build another.

Hello, I am from Argentina and I am building the vintage Graupner Hi Fly. Here are some photos of the building [more pics 004-009].

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
