RE: Has TopFlite gone nuts with the price??

I think they discontinued the Sea Fury last Spring before they raised the kit prices.

RE: Big jump in kit prices at Tower

If there are any of these kits you may have been planning on getting, you can still get them from Omni (Tower) through Ebay. They still have them at the old prices with free shipping but I'll bet...

RE: Big jump in kit prices at Tower

Holy crap! I bought my TF Cessna 182 for $149 a few years ago. Then I think it went up to $199. Now it's $269. The TF giant scale kits have all gone up $50 since I last looked at them a few weeks...

RE: Top Flite Sea Fury kit

Oh boy, I hate to see another TF kit go. It's a long shot, but we can only hope they'll replace it with another kit. Yeah yeah, I'm dreaming!

RE: Top Flite Focke-Wulf 190-D9

Chad... Please let me know if or when you can make a second canopy and send me a PM. Let me know the cost and I'll get the funds right over to you either by PayPal or mail.

Thanks,
Damon

RE: Top Flite Focke-Wulf 190-D9

Thanks guys! I think I'll do a little of both suggestions. I'll get the canopy from IMP, since this company is new to me and I'd like to try them out. It looks like their D9 is a touch larger, but...

Thanks for the opportunity Chip but for now I'm wanting to stick with it to see if there's interest in petitioning them to do another run.

Another TF Bonanza run... Encouraging news

Fellow builders,

Last night I sent and e-mail to Top Flite asking if there was any possibility that they might do another Bonanza run. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe they've done 2...

RE: SSE: Rudder mod or not?

RE: SSE: Rudder mod or not?
