Currently only have about 25 kits worth of materials in house. But, I would bet you will see flight vids and build threads before kits are for sale. I've still got to get instructions written, the absolute worst part of the job. Gonna let a couple tester kits out(plan on next week), after some feedback, and likely a couple changes, get the instructions buttoned up and then I'll start selling them. Hope for about a month, depends a lot on others build times too.

looks cool.. What size 4 stroke ? That would be a good bird for clear covering.

the hatch panel is retained without screws. A little bevel to the leading edge side of the hatch opening, glue a couple disks on, and a couple short 1/16 balsa tabs on the front and rear side of the panel!!! No more screws!
The ply coupled with covering works as a sprung panel, simply push down and forward a little on the leading edge, the rear pops up. Design even allows you to store the panel forward into the wing. If you happen to love those little screws the disks mounted in the pic are perfect for them.


Can you show some pictures of how this works? Somebody sent me one of these with a Slick wing kit and I'd like to understand a little better on how it works....in order to use it. Looks cool as heck, just don't quite understand how to use it.

Got to see the second version in the bones at SKC, very sweet build, can't wait for it to be available!!!

The hatches are kewl indeed. Basically, push I think the leading edge of the hatch in and forward and the hatch will slide a bit. Lift the other end out and pull clear, very neat setup really, I would use it in a sec

Digging the carbon fibre in the elevator. Does that act as a hinge? I tend to rip counter-balances off dragging ass... :oops: Speaking of ass, does it need Mo? :lol:

The carbon isn't a hinge, more of a joiner, and helps a lot with torsional loads.

I'll take a couple shots of the hatch setup, and a closer shot of the tail.
