RE: flair kits
I'm not building that One. But I am building the Flair Bristol F2b, and it's a pretty decent kit if you like to build. Quality is decent, but the instructions are way different. Not a book but individual sheets. If you enjoy building at all you'll like the Flair kits.

RE: flair kits
I am building a flair stearman kit it has the best die-cutting of any kit that I have ever built. But it is a builders kit. I would buy another flair kit they are that good.

Another very good dealer for Flair is Radical RC.
They'll take good care of you. I got my Fokker DVII kit from them.

RE: flair kits
I bought a Flair Taube for a friend from Radical RC. They also got me some Flair spinners and wheels on order.

The Taube was a little expensive for what it was, I thought, but it had very good wood that was nicely cut, and it went together very well. It was very light and strong when finished. First flight was a near disaster because the builder mis-measured the CG location and it was tail-heavy. He'd added weights to the tail--it would have been about right without them. He'll have to wait till next season. Wingspan 80 inches and a Saito .45 was more than enough.

I have not been able to get the Third Coast website the last few days. That concerns me because they were also a good source for Airsail kits. Anybody know the scoop?
