International Shipping Recommenced
New Zealand has moved to a Level 2 & 3 response to the Covid19 pandemic. We are still dispatching kits within a day or so of the orders coming in and we put them into the airfreight system in good faith. Currently we are seeing more delays at various collection centres both in New Zealand and overseas on the main routes. However the shipping times are not as good as we would like as there are delays in our customers countries. Once in the system, we have no control over the delivery time, and we have found calling NZ Post has not affected the delivery time frames. When we ship, Shopify notifies you of the NZ Post tracking number – please use the link in your shipping email to track your parcel.
PLEASE put your phone number on the order, we have had packages go missing and a phone number may have helped getting the parcel to you.
Thank you for your continued support.
We have been notified today of increases to our freight prices. Our postal courier service have increased the Covid-19 surcharges markedly to certain areas in the world. These surcharges are based on a per kilogram rate and they have jumped to the equivalent of $7.00 USD per kg into UK and Europe Zone and the Rest of the World zone. Australia and the USA surcharges are not hugely impacted at this point. Reluctantly, we are having to increase our freight prices to these zones as we cannot absorb the price increases. As soon as these charges are removed, we will be able to revert back to our previous pricing.
The world of air freight is not a nice place at the moment for small businesses.

The 93" Super Sinbad
We have taken those gorgeous, classic lines of the Super Sinbad Free Flight Glider from 1943 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.
Takahe Build Log On RC Groups
If you would like to see how our kitsets go together, check out these RC Groups Build Logs on the Takahe glider kitset, a modern take on those classic RC gliders from the 70's and 80's.
It's a 3 channel RES glider and can be built as either 100" or 110" wingspan. The kit includes a pure glider nose bulkhead, and an optional electric motor nose mount bulkhead.

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.

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.

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!!
