Kwik Fli III 59" 60 Size

Regular price $217.50 Sale

Another classic from designer Phil Kraft, the Kwik Fli III was the third generation in the Kwik Fli line, and was the 1967's Nationals and International winner.

The concept of the Kwik Fli Series was to design an aircraft that was a basic and simple approach to a competition aircraft, producing a simple and capable aircraft which, to quote the designer "grooves through manoeuvres".

Our Kiwk Fli III kitset also includes a clear vacuum formed canopy.

Short Kit Or Complete Airframe Kit?

A Short Kit includes a full size printed plan and all of the laser cut parts that are required as part of the complete airframe build.

Items such as wing ribs, dihedral joiners, fuselage formers & fuselage parts, doublers, bulkheads and so on.

Every part which is a complex cut is precisely laser cut as per the plan and included in the short kit. Some kits may also include vacuum formed ABS parts like canopies or cowlings.
