Seen on Facebook ( in German but the translation is slightly confusing ) a big fire at their manufacturing/storage facility - so it looks like Multiplex products are going to be in short supply for some time to come. Shame, Multiplex are the Mercedes of the model world, I've had more planes from Multiplex than any other manufacturer, everything fitted together without any sanding or trimming and all flew well - never had a dud. A very sad day.

That is terrible news. I have used their products for many years and agree with the comments above. Quality products.

I hope that they can get back on their feet soon.

Reading the translation on their facebook page it looks like the fire was at their suppliers manufacturing facility and the models affected are the Easy Glider 4 and new Fun Cub NG.

Thanks Frank. Hopefully the radio manufacturing is not affected as I believe that is carried out in-house.

Probably, but the post also said that the factory made various plastic parts, not clear if any of those are for radio parts.

Also they posted more details on their radio tie up with Powerbox to produce a M Link version of the PB Core radio.
