That looks like Mike Harrisons' design and he flies it well.

Finishing up an Encore from Mike Harrison now. Only have fuze to paint. Pretty standard old school pattern kit to build. The fuze is "BIG". Can't wait to fly her soon.

Are there plans or a kit available? I see it in the 'Area 51' section of the Insight r/c website, but no information.
Thanks!
Great looking airplane!

I would contact Mark through his Insight web page. That's how I got in touch with Mike Harrison. Not sure if he runs production of the plane periodically or not.

thanks for the nice compliments, the airplane is a scratch built and it is not a kit. I would recommend the Allure or Element or Mark Hunt's designs. These are all very good flying airplanes. only the Allure and Marks designs are glow options.
CK aero has other design options as well.

It's a shame it isn't offered as a kit. I really liked mine it flew great. I also have a cadence from mark and it's an incredible airplane.

fly dat,
Was your Encore glow or elec? Mine is glow. How much did yours weigh. I've been really slow building mine trying to keep the plane from getting too heavy. Prob end up over 11lbs but hopefully not too much.
