Default NEW KMP TWIN - Adam Aircraft A500

Hi Twin Lovers!

I am proud to anounce the soon to arrive Adam Aircraft A500. The model is all composite and will include air retracts. The wingspan will be over 80 inches!!!

I will post pictures as soon as I come back from the factory. Hopefully we'll get some good video while flying the model.

Cheer,
Andrew Kondor

Well…. The jet version isn’t quite as ugly as a Beech Starship, but that piston version… Have you ever seen anybody with a really bad case of the mumps? Blech!

If you had been introduced to the Skymaster as the "Oscar Pig" you wouldn't like it anywhere nearly so much.

The wing chord is sooooo narrow, like a glider, i wonder what the wing loading will be on the model?

Hi Bill, "Oscar Pig"????????. Please tell me more.

I find that not having anything,(as in push/pull configuration), to really compare the SM to,as in "not as pretty as",or "she's uglier than",I look at her and see an unusual and very functional design,but still symetric in shape. There's just something about her that has made her one of my favourites.
There's a full size one that flies over my workplace every now and again,and don't I know when she's coming!. The sound of those engines are so unique,and with those twin booms she gives me goosebumps every time.

Cheers,
Fearless.

P.S. Gonna have to have me a fly in one before I croak.

I didn't realize that it was you with the SeeVeeBee (I just checked your web page..) I talked to you in passing at Sandy Point last year!! Now if you get this twin, you can put those sea commander floats on it!

Were you at this years Sandy Point fall float fly? Hey, i'm already building a twin on floats that i don't know will fly.
I am sure KMP's new one will be a great flyer on wheels, on floats that might be interesting, definitely would be different.

Man, I love this plane. Looks Great. The first time I saw this plane was in the ad for the new Miami Vice movie. Love at first sight. So many great new ARF's coming out, hardest part is choosing.

What are the specs, wingspan, length, engines, retracts?... possible price??
