The Aeromaster, designed in the 1960's by Lou Andrews, has become a solid favourite for those wanting a great looking and well behaved biplane.
The Aeromaster is very docile and easy to fly, has great ground handling, and yet it can be pushed to really perform a full compliment of manoeuvres in the air if you like.
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! Try a swept & straight wing combo, or two swept wings, it's your choice.
Our kitset includes a laser cut acetate windscreen as per the original design, not a bubble canopy shown in one of the images.

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.
With a Short Kit, the only items you need to add to the laser cut parts to build a complete airframe are components which are simply cut to length. Parts such as wing spars, wing sheeting or fuselage sheeting for example.
A Complete Airframe Kit includes the Laser Cut Short Kit, plus the entire list of additional materials required to complete the airframe build.
Select this option when adding to your cart to purchase all of the materials required to complete the airframe build.
Every kit includes a full size printed plan, and where available the designers original construction notes. The kits do not include miscellaneous hardware such as pushrods, control horns, hinges, wheels etc.
