Skinny Bee 3 Channel Sport Flyer

It's back from the 1960's! The Skinny Bee was a popular New Zealand design, a 3 channel aircraft, promoted as "A top contest flyer yet suitable as a trainer".

It was New Zealand's answer to the Ugly Stik - A tough Sunday flyer that you could bring out for some fun any time, and keep it together with number 8 fencing wire & duct tape.

The Aeromaster 48" or 53" Biplane

The Aeromaster, designed in the 1960's by Lou Andrews, has become a solid favourite for those wanting a great looking well behaved biplane.

Our kit includes extra wing ribs to allow you to build either the 48" or 53" wings, which allows you to build the Aeromaster into one of three different wing configurations & sizes!

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!

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.

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.

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!!
