Default Diamond Dust RC?

Is Diamond Dust RC still in business? Is the Screamin Demon a better delta wing? I need to put my West 50 V1 in something.

If you can not come up with either a DD or SD kit, they are pretty easy to build from scratch.
There should be enough build threads to give you an inside look at the anatomy of either design. They are both very good planes that will repay your efforts with lots of fun.

CP right your probably better off scratch building a plane, here is one he recommended if you should look at this thread if you want a fast plane it has a PDF of the design on the first page.
As far as anybody knows the kits are no longer available and quite a few have tried to see if there was a possibility of getting one. The Original poster of the thread (the designer) sold the rights to production, so he is no longer involved with Mikes R/C.

not stupid, uneducated!

best bet to take PDF file to a place like Staples and have them print it out on the big plotter.

your printer at home may scale to fit,
and you need the rib patterns to be full size.

Just take it to a printer like Bob said and have them output it full size, no big deal.

Screw-In

The Diamond Dust are no more. I believe Jeff Gilbert Sr. passed away, and his son Jeff Gilbert Jr. was having the DD sold through a company called Tetrecam Inc. as I understand it. Trectracam was the last co. that I am aware of selling the kits and I guess they sold out. Tetrecam is no longer offering the model for sale, and Diamond Dust RC is not responsive at all. Couldn't even send them an email.

The Diamond Dust is not hard to build. The Manual is still online at the Diamond Dust RC webpage. I have a plans set I would be happy to send you (Send me a PM).

Screw-Out
