I’ve been away from RC since Swanny retired. Is there any 40 size kits or ARF’s around these days or is it all scratch building now? I know a few guys years ago were buying profile 40 size ARFs from Value Hobby but I see they no longer have them.

Dougs thread where he plans to do a kit run sometime soon. Not sure when he will though. I can say its a great flying plane but it is electric only. Probably could be converted to nitro but would need to be beefed up quite a bit to handle it.

Doug is all we have left. Stinkfinger/ Swany retired and everyone else that used to cut is MIA/AWOL.

I have the ability to cut kits if needed. Don't want to take anyone's business but I don't mind doing one-offs. If you have a kit or design you want cut, or a prototype idea, let me know.

I think there's more hoarders here than not,lots of dust built up on kits sitting on the shelfs. But see the wisdom them older guys had,if only we could store the times,and the youth that went with it. Your right Straightup. lol
