Alex,

Do you have an estimate for the number of hours that it might take a builder of intermediate skill to build this kit? Also, what is the minimum size of building surface required?

Thanks,

Bill

Hi Bill

I think it depend on the type of person as well, but on average i would geuss, around 100 hours for the building alone. The basic structure on the wing took us about 10 hours, and the skinning another 10 hours. The fuselage structure take about another 10 hours, and the skinning about 15 hours. Then we can allow for the stab about 15 hours in total. That gives me 60 hours, and say we allow 40 hours extra for the finishing. Thats just a rough estimate.

We are working on the composite fuselage. But the shipping cost will be higher due to the extra size.

Thanks

Hi Steve
Thanks for the interest in our product. The CAD models are finalized, we will be making the mould during the next month. We should have complete kits for sale in 3 months time.
Thanks

Hello,

You can order directly on the website here: http://www.radiance-f3a.com
But it's probably better to send Tommie an email, he will give you more details about the shipping costs, final price and delivery time. Here's his address: aviaform -at- gmail.com

Hello MarkinHedland: Hey This is Lynn Burks in the United States and I found a hobby shop in Australia that carried the OS speed controllers but I have lost that link. Would you have any Idea of a good R/C shop down there that you could direct me to that carries the OS controllers. Thanks Lynn Burks rclen123@roadrunner.com

Nice of you to provide an estimate but I wanted to say it strikes me as a fair bit low for those without direct experience. I built a mini Telemaster a few years back, kept track of my time and I put in nearly 60 hr!

Still love your kits, though.
