Graupner remote control and flight controller

Graupner GR-18 Copter Version - the perfect multirotor aircraft receiver!

Our GR-18 +3xG+3A + Vario receivers are already flashed with the software for full control of multirotor aircraft using the built-in gyros, ACC sensors and barometric altitude sensor. Compared to the combination of for example receiver + Naze 32 or MultiWii, this receiver offers extremely light weight and least required space. No soldering is required and you don't need any additional wires - the GR-18 has it all built-in.

Major advantages:

  • P and D settings via transmitter - no PC required
  • Extremely lightweight and and compact despite full sensor support
  • Telemetry on your RC transmitter
  • No additional wires, no soldering required


With the GRAUPNER HoTT 2.4 GHz technology, the receiver has a new Hopping Telemetry Transmission high-frequency unit with state-of-the-art components and software. For reception, a hardware-aerial diversity system always switches to the better aerial signal and for transmission always uses the aerial that was last used for reception. This ensures that the return channel data are sent via the better positioned aerial. Without add-on sensors, the parameters receiver voltage and temperature, as well as signal strength are transmitted.

3-axis gyro + 3-axis acceleration sensors + Vario:

Stabilization of the model aircraft in difficult wind conditions for up to 3 axes
Natural flight behaviour thanks to proportional gyro offset adjustment
Very good stabilization for tight flight figures
Thanks to the 3-axis gyro, even aerobatic models that are difficult to master can be flown very comfortably; simplifying aerobatic flight extremely
Flight figures can be flown very tightly
Simple adjustment of gyro assignment
Adjustment of the parameters via the HoTT telemetry
Altitude sensor for vario-function and altitude
Flybarless system for helicopters (later via update)
I2C interface for future addition of functions

With 12 control functions, the mx-20 HoTT lets the advanced RC model builder to control nearly any model. The use of Graupner HoTT 2.4-GHz transmission technology ensures great functional reliability through bidirectional communication between transmitter and receiver, with integrated telemetry, voice output via headphone output, and ultrafast response times.
The transmitter has 24 model memories. Simplified programming using touch keys. A contrast-rich, 8-line, blue-lit graphic display ensures perfect display of all setting parameters and telemetry data. Telemetry data and additional model memories can be stored on a micro-SD memory card. (later after update)
The channel signal is resolved at 12 bits in 4096 steps, thus providing extremely sensitive control.

FPV racer backpack

FPV racer backpack

This ultra-lightweight backpack for your Blacksnapper XS, provides enough space for your copters (2 maximum), your radio, lipos, charger and video glasses.
The size is still allowed to be carried as hand luggage in planes.



Improved version 2.0!

  • Improved prtection for the cable connection between motor and ESC:
    - Booms can't be pushed to the inside of the core in case of a crash
    - Motor mounts can't be pushed to the inside anymore
  • Higher main frame with more space for electronics (Naza V2 or Naza Lite can be used now) and bigger ESCs (e.g. Maytech 12A).
  • Improved vibration damping for GoPro/Mobius

The Black Snapper XS is the ultimate FPV Race Quad. Developed around the FPV camera and foldable to the size of the palm of your hand, the Black Snapper XS is unbeatably mobile and your perfect companion for the all-time adrenaline kick during trips into the woods or to remote meadows. 
The kit is entirely Made In Germany from carbon fiber and fiberglass (except POM motor mounts and folding parts) and exclusively available at Globe Flight. The extremely precise frame is not only super lightweight, but also simply eye candy on the ground and in the air! 

Despite its low weight, the copter core is very stable and rigid and protects all inner electronics during crashes on the ground or in mid-air. Furthermore, the foldable booms absorb a lot of cinetic energy by turning it into a rotational movement in case you crash. 

In most cases, you just need to fold out the booms again and check the alignment of the motors after a crash and you are ready to go again - the Black Snapper XS is the perfect quad for races with multiple pilots or for a slalom in the woods!

The Black Snapper XS is prepared for the following components:

  • Flight control like Naze32, NanoWii, OpenPilot etc.
    (prepared for 30,5mm hole distance, maximum board width 47mm)
  • Motors: MN1806 2300kV or similar
  • ESCs: Kiss 18A, Maytech 12A or similar 
  • Propellers: GF 5x3" or HQ 5x4" up to 6x3"
  • Lipo: 3-4s 850-1300mAh
  • FPV camera: Fatshark 600TVL
  • Full HD camera: Mobius HD or GoPro Hero

With 3S and 5x3" propellers, the Black Snapper XS already has great flying characteristics with a high climbing rate. In case this still isn't enough for you, chose 4S and 5x4" propellers and you will get a true rocket - for Speedfreaks only!
