How about a low wing trainer that can use a pilot figure and canopy.
GM Precision Sunbird JR.
Also the Killer V is easy to fly.

Hi Guys,

I have the Sig Hummer 250 finalized and ready for production already :-)

The SST is nearly ready

The Ace Alpha has been prototyped

The Ace High has been prototyped...

Q-tee/S-tee are in development

Jr Falcon/Jr Skylark are in development.

Honker and Honker Bipe have been prototyped

Pretty much every 1/2 a Ace is in some stage of development.

See pictures below. I'm open to what you all want to see next, just need your feedback.

Sincerely,
Doug (and Becky)

Does anyone have a pdf copy of the HOB 1/2a Pete? I thought I had a copy but can't seem to find it.

Besides all the pokey trainer planes what about some Acro?
With laser cutting no need to be a simple box those are a
dime a dozen why not bring sexy back and put some shape
in the design.

Do you still have it?

I bought this HOB 1/2A Pete from a friend last year. Dummy engine is held in place by magnets.

My buddy Paul owns HOB and Zap Glues. I've been trying to talk him into producing kits for the past three years, but no luck yet.

Barnstormer


Added to the Willy Nillies' website:

Photo below of the very first prototype high wing Barnstormer and the current Low wing Doug is finishing up.

Of Note: You can build either shoulder wing or low wing from the same kit, all parts are included for either version.

Super Sport 250 - Coming Soon!


Here's the new Willy Nillies' Super Sport 250.

From Doug: We sold out of these at Flite Fest! (and prototype bird!) It is a fun little plane with the option to build either aft taper or forward tapered wing. Low wing or shoulder wing! We have parts cut for 50 and we'll be bagging them up over the next few days and get them listed on the site.
