articles in magazines!

So - end November 2011 I ordered two Graupner Discus 2cT from one
of the online stores and got the servos and other rc-equipment sorted

The following should be realized:
- building of the center wing with the full length flap
- the 2 x 2 landing gear with thin wheels (no retracts at the moment)
- the center motor dome
... still to come ...
