XXXL RC ELFE P2 100% M 1:1 FULL SCALE GLIDER PATRICK TRAUFFER AIRSHOW FLIGHT INTERVIEW [4K]
Dear friends of Modellpilot.EU next to me Patti, Patrick Trauffer. We know him from DMAX in a duel with Andreas Brück. He won tight, you have to say yes, so really tight. Tell me, this crazy idea, tell me, how come you really? To this crazy idea? Yes. You mean with the idea for such a big plane? Yes. Yes, well, you know that a bit megalomaniac and I thought so what is there big, which is still fun and original not too hard, there are not that many Models. Maybe the Hütter 17 might also be one Project in scale 1: 1. But then I went for the Elf decided, because it is indeed a Swiss plane. Vorallendingen it was already then aerodynamically in the exception and in weight, that would yes speak exactly for it. Exactly. The shell weight of the original was only 65 kg. Yes. And that was it very amazing actually almost impossible, especially at this time with these materials. But you always have the same materials used? Exactly, I did everything the same way how they used to do that. The fuselage frames and and and What was for you? the biggest challenge? There have been various problems, especially with the Surface, because I was not so well equipped with the plans, I was also dependent on the Friend, Rolf Richi, he has me helped with the CAD drawings and he also eats the ribs and I still edged them with the jaws. The model has so many technical Details, especially the size. You just can not just quickly infect the surfaces, see if it fits and and and. That was a Huge challenge where I thought a couple of times, no, you can never, this is not possible. But somehow it always works and yes, I did it. Always go. Nothing is impossible. And the beauty is creativity, we have in building. Let’s do it that way, let’s do it that way. Exactly. We can not do it the same way. Exactly. The routine and experience she helped already. Ebendrum it was also possible in this really short time – so big to build – exactly. Because, I’ll say Markus is also such a candidate, such a project in this short time can create. But you need that just a lot of free time, a lot of patience and a lot of nerves. When I think back, I would say, oh no, you can never do that. Yes, okay. But you see, you can outgrow yourself. Maybe that was your job for yourself. That’s so. And if I’m like that yes say, then I pull it through, no matter as. It always works somehow. You have learned bricklayer right? Exactly, Building construction draftsman and then bricklayer and now I’m a locksmith actually. But that’s where you learn from craftsmanship you have to do it exactly You know exactly, I can do it, I have to do it. That’s right, that’s how it is it actually. That’s so. You are predestined to do that. Yes, yes. Those who know me have already thought, yes, yes, he can manage that. Yes, dear Patti and finally for our friends: model flying is top! Thank you. Many Thanks.
