de Havilland Beaver Kit

Hello.
I have seen a few examples of the de Havilland Beaver and have been unable to find a quality kit to build. I fly all electrics and would like one with a wing span in the 40 - 60 inch range for transport reasons.

Does anyons have information on a quality full or short kit available in the USA?

Thanks, Moose3

Oldie but goodie

You might advertise for a vintage Berkeley kit...Theirs was 48" and very scale.

It may be a little 'heavy' for you,but electrics were non-existent at the time,and the then current engines were becoming very potent.

The name escapes me, but there is a Canadian company that manufactures kits of this airframe.

I know little about them, but they have been in business for a long time. Since they've been around so long, I would assume that they produce a quality product.

Found the name, just below, in the "similar threads" section.

The Company's name is Unionvillle Hobbies. http://www.greathobbies.com/search/r...srchvendor=UVH

I know that you said U.S., but I believe this to be your easiest to locate, in your requested size range.

Pat Tritle has a design in the works for a 60" version of the Beaver. Do not know when he will have the design complete, but it might be worth waiting for.

When Pat puts his mind to something, it seems to turn into fruition shortly thereafter.

Thanks Komet, the Aerodesign kit is beautiful but unfortunately out of my budget.

Thanks Epoxyearl but alas it is bigger than I am looking for. I contacted Pat Tritle co. about the rumor and he responded that "yes" there is a 60 inch kit nearly ready so I'm going to wait for that.... Excited...
