International Shipping Recommenced

New Zealand has moved to a Level 1 response to the Covid19 pandemic. We are 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 fewer 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.

Thank you for your continued support.

Calypso (Retro) 64" Classic Patternship

The Calypso, a design from Hanno Prettner was an exercise in simplifying the growing complexity of F3A aerobatic models. It is still a fantastic F3A aerobatic model that won the 1983 World RC Aerobatic Champs. Here's your chance to fly a retro version of the model.

The Calypso performs amazing aerobatic routines with a 60 size two stroke, 90 four stroke or 10cc petrol, or 5 cell electric motor.

Model photo coming soon but enjoy the painting of its namesake by Jan Styka.

Titan 62" 60 Size Classic Pattern Ship

The Titan, designed by Clive Weller in 1978, was a new design of pattern ship for the tighter and more difficult manoeuvres being proposed in pattern flying at the time.

At the time the Titan featured a larger, thicker wing and tailplane, resulting in a model which decelerates more rapidly, making the high entry manoeuvres and vertical downward parts a great deal easier.

Tiger Tail 64" 60 Size Classic Pattern Ship

Another classic pattern ship, the Tiger Tail was originally designed by Ron Chidgey, and was a two times US Nationals winner!

The original Tiger Tail plan was drawn around a foam core wing. We have re-engineered the wing into a built up balsa wing that anyone can construct with standard tools, and drawn a new plan to compliment the built up wing.

Southerner 60" 30 Size

Originally produced by Keil Kraft, The Free Flight Southerner was first drawn up in early 1947, but it wasn't until the Mills 2.4 Diesel became popular that the design was revised and updated in 1949.

The wing can be built in a dihedral or polyhedral format. We have modified the original Free Flight design and included in our kitset an additional plan and laser cut parts for a new tailplane with elevators, and fin and rudder for RC use.

The LS-1 60" Slope Soarer

The LS-1 is  60" Slope Soarer was designed by the La Sierra Slope Soarers flying club in Riverside, California, in the 1990's. So the story goes, that during a club meeting, one member suggested the club should have it's own glider, something indigenous to their club and hill.

The idea was to keep it simple, and low cost. Something easily built, which doesn't sacrifice performance. Able to perform aerobatics for the seasoned pilot, but be stable enough for beginner aileron pilots.

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!!
