    Mud Duck Aviation returns

    Hello fellow modelers.

    My name is Greg, I purchased Mud Duck Aviation from Tom Chipley recently. I will be offering kits again in the near future and will likely be offering plans for the Mud Duck Mk II and the Agri duck very soon.

    I still need to set up shop and get organized. I will be operating the company on a part time basis for a while before cutting lose. I will be setting up a website for the company as soon as I can muster where interested individuals can get some information.

    I would love to hear from anyone who has suggestions to improve the models they have built, I would be more than happy to update the product lines with better building suggestions. If any of you would like me to include photos of your duck(s) on the website I will be setting up, feel free to send pictures and any relevent information to me at mudduck@optonline.net


    I myself have built and flown the Agri-Duck and have friends with the Mud Duck Mk I and CricKit. Together we will try to improve the line and are looking at some new models to possibly introduce.

    The current line currently includes:

    Mud Duck Mk II (kits & plans)
    Agri Duck (kits & plans)
    Mud Duck Sport .40/.60 (kit)
    CricKit (kit)

    "On the Drawing Board":

    Bipe Duck
    Cub Duck
    Improved CricKit (more stable)
    Electrified versions of nearly all models


    Thanks,
    Greg

    RE: Mud Duck Aviation returns

    Thanks for the support and continued interest. Sorry for the delayed response.

    fast eddie b,

    Sorry, no worthwhile news yet. I am trying to finish up some college credits before I dive headfirst into operating MDA as a full time business. I have a website paid for and am 90% in completing it (offline), but school has slowed the progress as of late. You will be able to find it at Mud Duck Aviation but I will not be able to offer all the things on it right away (the available items will be noted).

    I currently can supply full size plans, templates, and decals sets for the Mud Duck MkII and Agri-Duck. I have the ability to get some Mud Duck Sport kits (40-60 size / 80 in WS) available for purchase soon. I also have some CricKit kits, but I am trying to make a few modifications to improve stability before re-releasing them.

    polstery,

    As per my summary above, I do have some things available now, or very soon. What exactly are you interested in right now. I can give you an idea of when/what I can accomplish in the immediate future.

    jmupilot,

    I'm looking forward to getting some pictures of your Duck! If you feel ambitious enough, feel free to submit a simple modification article for the banner towing and I'll provide that for other builders to consider doing to their own Ducks! I have received several tips and articles from another modeler which will also be posted on the website, this incudes using the Mud Duck as a downlink video platform (which it is ideally suited).



    Anyone can reach me easiest and quickest via my email mudduck@optonline.net If anyone would like to talk by phone I can provide my cell as I currently do not have a dedicated business line.

    Thanks Again for all your support!

    Greg
