Don't know to be honest. Kinda burned out on producing kits. Lots of work and time involved in doing these and not much profit. I am working on a couple new projects that I think are going to be "different" and fun. Those would be kits but probably next year sometime.

No MX-2 on sale? That's got to be a popular one. Great build thread on FG.

If you are interested in the MX-2 then just give John a call at OMP and he'll take care of you. :tu:

Yea, maybe Swany will do my kits for me too! I'd rather be flying these days!

Maybe it would be more fun if you made a little $$ on them. Swany did recently up his prices but it won't deter me from buying. I build because it's better, not because it's cheaper. And like others said, maybe farm them out or sell plans.

I consider myself a true builder as well and think the art of scratch building is becoming a minority in this hobby. I'll also admit though I like the modern ARFs and the quickness you can get a plane in the air. But being a builder I also have the skills to go through an ARF, fix any problems, make modifications if I want to, and then go enjoy it. A lot of guys these days find one loose glue joint or some minor hardware issue on an ARF and have no idea what to do except bitch. Right now I'm really enjoyng putting together my 50cc Yak 55. Just wish the weather wasn't so cold!

Thanks Clay! Keep up the good work!


I think the rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated. He's just burned out by the internet, not the kits. That's my guess.

Back to OMP...

Mike, any chance of the big Yak slab ever coming back, Arf or Kit? I'm loving mine like a drunk prom date! Brillelli 46 yanks it around like it's a rag doll and it's probably my favorite slab right now.

Yep, and their numbers are getting low in stock as well!

Regarding big slabs like the Yak I don't know if I'll do kits on that anymore. Not in the near future. I'm always thinking of cool ideas like a true 50cc hybrid Fusion (always wanted to do that). Of course the 80" Fusion profile was the best flying 80" slab I've had but they are out of stock now as well.

An ARF of the 80" Fusion would be awesome. I agree about it being the best of the 80" bunch.

Thanks Spaz! Bet your weather isn't any better! We've had a couple of indoor foamy events already here and that beats the hell out of flying outside right now!

On to the 80" Fusion ARF idea.....wonder what the market would be for such a beast?

Yeah, I know the market wouldn't be huge but maybe if it got some exposure like a review in MA or another mag and maybe some time getting passed around at Nall. I can only imagine what it video would come from getting into the hands of Kyle or Gernot. Then your market would be quite a bit larger I'd bet. Nothing against the sweet flying Forrest does, just thinking about name recognition for the masses. I don;t know of anybody who has flown the 80" Fusion who hasn't liked it over the 80" Edge or yak. It's a different animal totally.

I wonder if the Fusion was a 76" or so that was more in line with the power of a DL30 if that would make a difference? There are lots of fatties coming out for the DL30 size range now. Maybe have a firewall mount that slips over the rails for non-beam mount engines. Just thinking.
