Our Latest Kitset Is Joe Bridi's UFO

Another classic from designer Joe Bridi, the UFO 65" is the next generation of Pattern Ship following on from the successful Dirty Birdy, in the unending quest for perfection!

The UFO features a swept wing and stabiliser for better roll performance, and a thicker anhedral stabiliser to make the tail more stable in some manoeuvres.

Kit Updates With New Vac Formed Parts

We now have a larger vacuum forming machine which we have designed in-house. So we will update some kits and include new vacuum formed parts which were previously too large to make.

The Victa Airtourer will soon be updated with a HUGE bubble canopy (test samples in the picture above), and the Slingsby T-53B Glider updated with a nice canopy as well.

Keeping It Simple With The 78" Skylark

An ideal first build and fly RC aircraft, we engineered the Skylark to tick all the boxes for new builders and flyers, and those looking for some relaxing fun floating around the sky.

The Skylark 78" is a complete wood kit, so all wood materials are included.

THE FIRST 12 KITS PURCHASED WILL RECEIVE A FREE BOTTLE OF TITEBOND ALIPHATIC GLUE & DUBRO LASER PUSHRODS!

Leprechaun 103" Glider By R A Twoomey

The Leprechaun was designed by R A Twoomey in 1950 as a low aspect ratio free flight glider, and was a record breaker in it's day. Although the span is only 103", the wing and tail area are huge!

We have engineered our kitset true to the original design, with the under cambered aerofoil, pylon mounted wing and tailplane, and stick construction of the fuselage.

The Super Sinbad 2 Channel 93" Is Now Our Biggest Selling Kitset!

We have taken those gorgeous, classic lines of the Super Sinbad and scaled it up to a 93" 2 channel glider for slope or bungee launch.

The body is built in two halves using an arrangement of formers, allowing you to keep that open structure but still build an accurate fuselage. The two piece wing uses the original aerofoil and is joined through a strong centre spar box with a 3mm laser cut steel wing joiner.

The Heron Featuring Classic Lines From The 1970's Scaled Up To 142"

Drawing on the classic lines of Dave Thornburg's Bird Of Time from the 1970's, we have scaled up those timeless curves and re-engineered this into a 142" / 3.6 metre classic glider.

So now you can re-live the Golden Years of RC Sailplanes in an easy building modern kitset. The design features an interlocking fuselage for straightforward and accurate construction and our own completely re-drawn full size plan.

Slingsby T-53B 111" Glider

For A Limited Time Save 10% On The Complete Airframe Kit!

When the Slingsby factory in Great Britain decided to move away from wooden construction, the aluminium T-53 was developed. It features two fixed tandem wheels and a very obvious swept forward wing.

The Slingsby T-53B was a minor modification of the Slingsby T-53 two seat tandem trainer, and was used by the RAF for Air Cadet training.

Ridge Runner 72" Slope Soarer

Do you feel the need for speed on the slope?! Well the 72" Ridge Runner could be just what you need.

Designed in the early 1970's for slope aerobatic and pylon race events, the Ridge Runner placed in the finals of the 1973 and 1974 RCM Trophy Races, and it was the most popular slope soarer entry.

The Ridge Runner provides crisp control authority, and aerobatic capabilities to keep a pattern flyer interested.

Testimonials

Hi Pete. Thanks for your prompt attention to my kitset order, it arrived without a mark on it. The laser cutting is the best I've seen, even better than the SIG kit sets I have. I will pass the word around our club over here.

John Grant, New Zealand

Hi Pete. I have finished the Buzzard Bombshell from your semi kit. The accuracy of parts  along with extra strip wood were of top quality. Have finished model in Solarfilm, powered by a Scorpion electric motor, came out all up at 4lbs. 8ozs. Test flew yesterday with only down thrust needed. A great project and a worthy addition to my vintage stable.

Harvey Stiver, New Zealand

Hi Pete. The Slingsby kit has just landed (pun intended). I haven’t had the chance to unpack the laser cut parts yet but going by Darryl’s comments they will fit like a glove. Also the plans are the best I have seen in a long time and I have been modelling for more than 50 years!!
