Here are photos of the 10 FSR. It's the one that's been broken in and has good compression and the stock muffler.

This one is sure to be popular. It's the 20 size version of the Bingo! by Doc Mathews. Ace used to sell kits of the Bingo, Bingo 40, and the Big Bingo (120 size) but as far as I know they never produced the 20 size.

It should be perfect for that Saito 30 or OS 26 Surpass that you have sitting around looking for a home.

Here's one for you guys who want to build a super cool tri motor scale aircraft without tons of pesky scale details. You have to build round cowls to make it look right, but other than that it's just a box. The wing is in three pieces, but with the laser cut ribs it should be easy to get the joiner tubes lined up. Sooner or later I'll have to build one of these. I have three 25 FPs, which is certainly more power than it needs.

Look in the RCM section.

Short kit includes bulkheads, lite ply, plywood wing mounting parts, a few other odds and ends, and a lot of ribs. $60

I've never built the Osprey Bipe, but it looks like a really cool plane. If you have an OS 91 Surpass or Saito FA91 lying around and you're looking for a plane to put it on, maybe this would be a good subject. It's essentially a biplane version of the Osprey II pattern plane.

The short kit includes fuselage sides and doublers for either the long-nose or short-nose option shown on the plan.
