Does anyone know when or if Bruce Tharpe will produce a Flyin King or the Venture kits? I have built and flown both of these and they are great kits to build and great planes to fly. For several months now they have been listed as temporarily out of stock.

Send Bruce an email or call him, he also designs drones for major research firms and NASA if memory serves me right.
He will usually get several inquiries about the Venture and Flying King kits them he will go into production for a set number
of kits going by the demand, as he "hand cuts" all of his kits it takes quite a bit of time. or 541-582-1708

On another note, Bruce designed the Sig Four-Star series of kits when he worked @ Sig Mfg., the Venture is a refined
version of the Four-Star 60. You may also order the plans for the Venture & Flying King directly from Bruce if you have
a desire to scratch build either of these beauties.

He posted this on another site.

Hi fix-n-fly, all's well here. Just moving slower these days :-) Nearly have a run of Flyin' King kits ready, then on to a new batch of Venture 60 kits.

And yeah, you're right, my website could use a facelift. It's on the list!


email him and get on the list for kits.
