Default ARC Compensator

I had a link to some company building ARC Compensators and lost it during a computer crash......I think from the Eureka kits ? Does anyone know the name of the website ?
I seem to recall it being called Old Skool or something like that . thanks, Mike

Hi,

Eureka Aircraft sell "short kit" of Rhett Millers Compensator 60:

http://www.eurekaaircraft.com/plan_kits/compensator.htm

It is not an ARC(Almost Ready to Cover), You have to (or let somone)build the short kit.

They had some of the Eureka Short Kits available as ARC, but the site looks like it’s not active at this time.

Contact Don at Eureka, he might know more, he had there link on his site at one time.

Good luck with Old Skool, I ordered an ARC Compensator from them a couple of years ago and never received any follow up from them. This was after making several calls and such.

They were Eureka short kits framed up by the guys at Pyramid Hobbies in Cullman, Alabama. I talked at length with the owner, Sid, and ordered an Atlas from him several years ago. I was very happy with the workmanship, though questioned using 3/32 sheeting on the wings...too heavy. Otherwise it was quite nicely built.

At the time, they had the Compensator, Atlas, and I believe Curare available and had plans for many more...sadly doesnt appear they are available though I assume the Eureka short kits still are.

Guys, I have heard Sid had some Major health problems and had to close everything down, This included Pyramid hobbies and the ARC planes from Eureka. Pete

Default Compensator ARC.

I have a kit that was produced by a company called Model Products

It is NIB and comes with some hardware and a very nice clear canopy.
I wont be building it and am therefore am going to be passing it along to someone who would appreciate it.
Only problem is, I don't know its current day worth.
Any help would be appreciated.

Its a big big box.

Thank you in advance.
