Alpina 4001 ELEKTRO
... ready to cover, excl. airbrakes MX21 4164
The Alpina was first introduced in the early 1980ís. Since this time its outstanding flying characteristics have made it a familiar and popular model amongst the gliding fraternity both in Germany and abroad. The design has been flown in dozens of competitions, and has indeed won many of them. In the early 90ís the Alpina
Magic was added to the line, its main innovation being variable wingspan.
The modelís large size makes it easy to see in the air, and this allows the pilot to fly safely over a very wide radius. The introduction of the Alpina 4001 saw a further significant improvement in the machineís performance. The modelís broad speed range makes it easy to cross large areas of poor air quickly and easily, and you do not need to fear turbulent conditions and stormy weather.
Many modellers have also expressed a wish for an electric version of the Alpina 4001. Quite a number of Alpinas have been converted by individual modellers, and Multiplex staff members have also had excellent experience with their own conversions.
This made us confident about producing the Alpina 4001 ELEKTRO.
