Default New 12' Telemaster

Has anyone built the new 12' Telemaster from Hobby Lobby? If so, did it justify the high cost of the kit??

Thanks

I have not seen the twelve foot version, but all of the new Telemasters are cut by John Valentine of Top Notch Products.
John does some absolutely first class designing and laser cutting. He has made improvements to the entire line, not just cutting
the same old patterns. I would say you would be happy with it.

I have not built the 12' foot version but have built the smaller one and they are great kits, worth the cost. Nothing flies like a telemaster, they have been around for decades. The 12' version with a little breeze could float around the sky at 1/4 throttle all day long.

A club member brought a V1 Sr. Telemaster out with a OS.70 on it, I loved it. I looked at HL's video of the V2 I didn't like all the plywood or the wing attachment. I went to ebay and got a V1 94"er. I've got my silk and dope, tubes of Ambrose glue and am going "OLD SCHOOL."

Thanks guys... I know the V1 kits are pretty good and fly even better. I was just looking to see if anyone had built the latest and most expensive Telemaster kit. I do not what to plunk the funds down until I read a review or see a build thread...

Happy flying!!
