Default Shortage of Kits?

Is it just my imagination or does there seem to be a shortage of Top Flite kits available? Most of the TF kits on the Tower website show "Out of Stock" or "Backorder". Several other online retailers I frequent also list most of the TF kits out of stock.

While there are some stockouts, most of the kits are available. They are on order and should be produced. soon.

It seems like build up kits are going out of style, I guess the new generation getting into this hobby want to buy and fly. That" Ok,but they are missing out on the whole aspect of the hobby from start to finish.

You are correct. Demand for full kits has been falling steadily for a number of years. Existing kits are barely hanging on.
