Does anyone buy an actual kit anymore? I think Top Flight still makes a few from what I see on the Tower Hobbies catalog. But they are becoming increasingly rare. Almost everything is an ARF these days. Even the high end 3D stuff.
The last "real" kit I bought wat the Top Flight 60" P-51B... I have bought 2 House of Balsa kits, they are ok, but they could have been done a little better.
Since I started making ARF type kits, well more work than the ARFs you used to I gave up buying the products of others, I was just about ready to buy a P-51 from Blitz but I decided not to after hearing from the guys and reading the reviews... I am tenpted to have them remove RCWorks from the name because of the quality concerns and I do not want the confusion with my own products.
I am looking at breaking out of foam next year in to some molded composites and maybe later on some wood, I just don't see the market for wood like there once was. That's sad.
