The Aerotique captures the look of aviation in it's infancy. It's simple to build flat on the building board, easy to fly, and always attracts attention at the field. Take offs and landings are a breeze, and it will fly slow and predictable if you like, or run through basic aerobatics with ease. All this while powered by an economical 25 size glow engine or electric equivalent.
To make building of the curved spruce tail pieces easy we have included some MDF formers which you can bend the spruce around for laminating. Simply soak the spruce, bend it around the formers and cable-tie it in place until dry. Then remove it and apply aliphatic glue and tie it back around the formers until dry. You will be rewarded with a very strong and good looking part.

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.
