Default Well...

The most recent Patriot kit you have seen ( $100 bucks..) is a limited time production of the Patriot from Great Planes Manuf. They stopped making the kits and the ARF's a few years ago -- but they brought the kit back for a limited run. I wish they did the same for the ARF!!

These days the ARF's are pretty rare. Your best bet is either on here or E-Bay.

Regards,
james

A patriot in front of a red mustang. Nice pic james.

I am still eagerly awaiting my patriot kit to arrive and also wishing for spring so my red mustang would stay clean for more than a day.

I've got a Patriot Arf I have joined the wing halfs together
and installed the Wing retracts along with a low profile futaba
retract servo, but that is as far as i have gotton.
I just dont have time to build like i wish i did.
I'd take my $150.00 back without the retracts and servo
or 200.00 for everything, or what i would rather do is trade
it for a finished Diamond Dust or outlaw no motor or servo's needed for DD or outlaw

If interested just let me know, I may could flex on the price a little
and if your near middle Tennessee (50 mile Radius of nashville)
no shipping

I see the ARF on great plane's website, but not the kit ????

Just found a couple kits here in the LHS in Chantilly, VA. Can't wait to build one. They have a completed ARF with engine and retracts installed in the store for $200. Don't know if $200 includes the engine or retracts. Except for the plastic parts, it looks great.
