Skinni Mini kits now available

Hey guys. Well its been quite a learning experience to figure out how to get everything together (parts from manufacturers, shipping, writing an instruction manual that everyone can understand, getting the foam cutting consistent) but Im finally ready to offer the Skinni Mini kits "officially" Ive sold a few to people that were interested ahead of time, and so far the process has worked flawlessly.

The Skinni Mini is a small, fast foam flying wing. I designed it to be small enough to keep in the car for those "lunch time" flying sessions, but the stock power system and thin airfoil offers a little more "punch" than other planes its size. The kit is very complete. All you have to supply is 2 micro servos, a micro RX, 7-10 amp ESC and a 6-8 cell AAA size battery pack.

The kit includes-
-wing cores
-250 motor
-Graupner 2mm prop adapter
-pre cut tiplets
-pre cut elevons
-Dubro micro control horns
-Dubro micro EZ connectors
-pushrods with z-bends
-motor mont and wire tie
-velcro for mounting the battery
-detailed and illistrated instruction manual

You can go here to see some videos of the Skinni Mini.

All the videos were made using the included motor and prop and a 7x700mah NiMh AAA pack. AUW is 7.5oz.

Also you can go here to check out a building thread

Price of the kit is $50 USD and shipping is $5 uninsured. If you prefer insured shipping it is $7 USD.

If anybody has questions please contact me at

Yes all videos are done with the stock power system. In fact I have yet to change motors. I want to go brushless, but dont have the funds to do so yet. But it is really not needed on the Skinni Mini unless you are just looking for INSANE speed. The stock motor pushes it along very nicely.

However I have been eyeing the new RAZOR 350, it seems like an almost direct replacement in size for the J250. On 6 or 7 KAN 950's the Skinni Mini would probaly have to be flown fly by sound alone, as the speed would make it a little hard to see.
