Hi Guppy builders!

One very young RC modeler, only 15 years old Tomaz, build a Guppy model and his brother take a video of his Guppy in flight.

Look at the video, to get another reason for building the Guppy!

Hey Mitja

Looks like Tomaz builds pretty well! Pretty good flyer also.

Not sure what happened to these guys, they havn't said anything since friday! Guess they are off in the workshop:-)

Well, I hope that builders will show their progress of assembling (and carving) their Guppies. Any pictures will be appreciated! The builders feedback is very important!

Till then, for some motivation, here I will show you two Guppies that was build by modeler Daniel from Croatia. One is build for him and another for his son.

I am working today on test cutting the Hotliner wing parts. They should be available very soon.

Also, If any one has inquired about the Guppy or Hotliner stuff and not received an answer, please don't be offended and by all means ask again! It has been a very busy 30 days. In addition to all the regular work which is a 7 day a week deal we managed to bring the Guppy kit to market and redo the Push-E-Cat line to brushless and hopefully not miss to many e-mails at the same time. Wiley, next one out the door is yours, sorry. None of this would have been possible without great support from Mitja and the help of my two sons. Thanks to everybody

What? if Denny is behind the US production then it must be a good kit, I'll put it on my must buy list.

What's taking you so long Jose? Got mine Saturday, baptizing my granddaughter on Sunday, then back to the build for the Guppy!
Kudos to Denny for a great looking kit...keep you posted.

Little Guppys are trying to grow everywhere in the shop!! Peices are everywhere!

Intro price is $84 + shipping of $8 till March third when it goes to $89

hi, how can i order the kit? how can i pay it? is it possible to send on italy?

Hi cronoflyer

Yes, I will send to Italy. A quick look at the postal rates says that postage would be about $21. You can order directly from the web site using either credit card or PayPal. If you do not use either of those you could send international money order.
