Park Scale Models does make a nice kit, and Birdy yours look good. Congratulations on a successful first build. Have you flown her yet?

Thank you! Yes, flew her yesterday for the first time, flew great! I was more nervous flying this one than some of my higher dollar ARF's! Those don't have the build time I have in this

Thank you! Great kit. Any chance of a little larger version?

Wow! You just made my day!! Any idea on ETA? For sure put me down for one. Never had luck building a kit until I built one of your kits. So easy to put together

Thanks for a great kit!

I may order up the smaller monocoupe next week

It probably won't be until some time in the fall, I have a couple other projects I need to get finished up first.

A little bump here, Over the last three months I have been finding time to be able to fly my smaller stuff at the local school yards. Last week I spotted the Monocoupe in the basement and got her airworthy...did not take much. Anyhow, I flew her this past weekend. The first 45 seconds were a bit sketchy as I had to reprogram my Tx for her and had way to much throw on both the elevator and rudder. I got her down in one piece and dialed back the throws and added some expo and off she went for a great flight. She really does look great in the air.

Cheers,
Jim
