Salut Stephan  :D

Well, Ireland is a small country, and we spend most of our time flying than behind a computer screen !  :P
Well, ok... maybe not !  :lol:  :lol:

So, here you go : http://www.flairmodels.co.uk/index.htm you have the dealer list for Germany.
They are back in business for the past 2 years or so now... Don't know about the Pt17, but as far as I know, the Ka8 is still not produced... Look like they are waiting to sort out issues with the canopy mold provider and other little things (well, that was my latest update on the ka8b...  :?: )
Not sure things has moved since...
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

Hi Fred
I know the Flair homepage, but nothing is said whether its being up date. At least some links are obsolete. TopModel in Switzerland is the only one the PT17 ist still listed. I will contact some of the German dealers.
Thanks for your input and don't tell Vincent that I am looking out for a nitro airplane  :oops: well finally it's AndrĂ© with his towing(remorqueur ?) subject who pushed me to look for it and I have a still flying PT17 50km from my home. But to make it realy nice it have to have a radial engine and this guys are realy expensive  :cry:
cheers
Stephan
