I am a new builder and currently building my 4th plane. I think the first thing you need to do is get people interested in the hobby. Once they are hooked suggest something that there isn't an ARF version of. In my case I am interested in thermal flight and the planes that I am looking into purchasing are only available as kits or plans. I also like building so maybe I'm not the right person to ask. I have a BOT kit waiting to be built just didn't like the idea of an ARF.

If you could talk the manufactures into producing really poor quality ARFs and nice kits you would probably see more people building...

At my club a new person is started on an Easy Glider and a Paragon is the recommended plane to build. Most people end up building that paragon even if they don't stay with it for long.
