Default RC airplane construction types revisited !

OK, I had to repost this from an old thread.. simply because as the writer.. I still think its relevant, and funny

Here is how it breaks down to me...

1. ASSEMBLY is putting together an arf (note) you can do so much improvement to most arfs I think its more than that.

2. KIT BUILDING starts with a mostly complete kit and plans with instructions

3. PLAN BUILDING you have some one elses plans, limited or no instructions. (note) includes short kits*

4. SCRATCH BUILDING...... BROTHER you are on your own! no plans ,parts, instructions...

5. and my definiton of KIT BASHING...If you build it and it doesn't look anything like the box..its a success !
