Heard today that they have gone belly up. Is that true, or is it old news?

If true, it is a pity, I built Graupner models in my younger days & that might be as much as 50 years ago. Sad sign of the times.

That’s a shame! I have their F4U Corsair (complete kit with retracts) sat waiting to be built or sold on... I already have 2 Corsairs but this was my first purchase..... Beautiful Fibre glass fuselage and wing centre section.

Annoying if, like a friend of mine, you have invested in a Graupner transmitter & will want some receivers in the future.. Need to stock up now.

I think that the South Korean parent co. will continue to manufacture and distribute the radio sets, as that was their 'part' of the business. It's only the German office / factory that has been shut down.
