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

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

Have just recently gotten into building kits. Have finished a sig fourstar 20 and also a little 3d geebee from hobbyking but have stumbled upon this monocoupe and have read the entire thread. I wont be ordering until after we get back from a holiday in about 3-4 months. So i was wondering how far away will the 48" coupe be?
Thanks, Dave

Dave...I'h hoping to have the 48" Monocoupe finished or close to finished in that time frame. It all depends on what kind of curves life throws at me. I have a couple of projects I need to get finished up before I can start on the 48" Monocoupe.
