Delivery Delays Due To COVID19 Lockdown
To help reduce the spread of COVID19, New Zealand is currently in full lockdown.
While we are still producing kits for orders, the lockdown has introduced delays in the collection of our outgoing freight. You are welcome to place your order, and we will complete your kit, however at this stage there will likely be a 2 to 4 week delay in your kitset shipping out.
Freight facilities are continually changing, and we will update you as soon as we have more news. Our freight company always supplies an exemplary service, and we are sure they will be back to full capacity as soon as they can.

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!!
