Is this a similar IKON kit ? http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2331912

IKON kits are for advanced builders. They build into spectacular models, but they require experience to put them together.

At this time, there are no IKON kits being produced. Maybe a RCG member will have the plans, and be willing to copy them for you.

The IKON build manuals expect you to know what you are doing. Basically, only the "hard parts" are covered in the instructions.

Good luck with your excellent acquisitions. I suggest that you set aside the IKON kit until you have gained a few years of building experience.

Just a good high Def pic would do on the ikon it's primarily glued some things need shaped via sanding but incidents and such will be helpful. There may be more that needs completed after a good study of plans. I catching on. Thanks for the post.
Man the wings are beautiful on this plane. Each half is almost bug enuff to curl up and knapsack on. It will be a beautiful addition to the skys..

Nailed it

This is the exact kit I have

I'm totaly amazed at the small sized motor suggestions on the older models. Hard to believe one so small would power such a bug plane

These days, power requirements are blown out of proportion, in relationship to what is actually needed.. The IKON kit will fly very well with the suggested power.
