Default Anyone build ARM kits ?

I have been looking at the E clipse 50 kit by ARM and I don't recall seeing anything on their kits being built. Kit cost is $365.00 plus shipping which seems a bit high but I know nothing about it like quality, hardware and so on.

Plane has a plug in wing span of 98", fuse is 77" with a wing aera of 1,593 sq. in. Engine sizes are 40cc to50cc. Any body build this bird ? Leroy

Do you mean AMR? http://www.amr-rc.com/index.php?path...=AMR&langue=en

If so, here is a build thread for one of their trainer kits. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=10544486

Leroy,
I have built their Stick 30 High Wing, 33% J-3 and 33% Waco YMF-5. The kit quality is excellent and they are great flying planes as well. The instructions are adequate as long as you have built a few kits. They do not show linkage setups etc: I think the logic here as most builders have their own methods of linkage setups. Build them per the plans and you will have a great flying plane.

My 33% Waco is going thru a rebuild this winter due to pilot error on landing this past spring. I would not hesitate to build another AMR kit.
Later!!
Anthony
