    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    Well this thread got locked down because the mod thought it was getting too commercial. I actually thought it was a pretty interesting thread, on the subject of how kit manufacturers might find a niche in an ARF world by making kits that are less time consuming to build.

    On the other hand, the mod may have been correct that the thread was just thinly disguised advertising, and may have the same question about your post.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    Huh? Just looking for new and creative ways to glue my fingers together!

    I'll assume you responded to the wrong post, or live in another parallel universe where such queries are offensive!

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    David, Mike was referring to another thread about Mosquitobite planes.

    Look at his post again, and click on where he said "this thread". That is a link to the thread he is referring to.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    Ah I see....interesting thread....

    Nice job on the covering videos Mike. My wife even watched them, she's re-covering "her" trainer now, it's a tad ugly for her tastes.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    MinnFlyer, thanks for clearing up the confusion! I didn't pick up the ambiguity of "this thread" when I wrote it, or when I read David's response!

    In truth, I too find Mosquito Bite's kit philosophy interesting, would have rather not had the thread shut down, and would also like to hear from dis-interested parties of their experiences.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    My pleasure Mike.

    blwblw, Open the "Great Planes Profile-38" Review in RCU Magazine (Click "Magazine" at the top of this page)

    In the review there are some videos that show some of the basics of covering.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    Well, I was hoping at least one RCU member might have built or seen one of these planes, so I spent some time on their web site just now, and it appears that none of the kits are actually shipping. The one that looks most ready is a trainer with the claim to fame of having an 85" wingspan. That's an interesting niche, but a niche none the less.

    Still, I hope they have a successful business model. I like kits a lot (keep me sane in the winter, really), and as the big guys get out of the kit business, I'm counting on little kit "boutiques" to carry on the tradition.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    I gave their design a good look, and the engineering appears to be excellent. It's very similar to what some of the big names are only now starting to switch to.

    If I were in the market for one of their designs, I wouldn't hesitate to try them out.

    RE: Mosquito Bite Planes

    Try Skysharkrc.com....be sure to click on the Fantasy button....if your wife isn't in the room. It is a nice plane, but Skyshark makes it a bit nicer with their advertising.
