Default Mud Duck Aviation returns

Hello fellow modelers.

My name is Greg, I purchased Mud Duck Aviation from Tom Chipley recently. I will be offering kits again in the near future and will likely be offering plans for the Mud Duck Mk II and the Agri duck very soon.

I still need to set up shop and get organized. I will be operating the company on a part time basis for a while before cutting lose. I will be setting up a website for the company as soon as I can muster where interested individuals can get some information.

I would love to hear from anyone who has suggestions to improve the models they have built, I would be more than happy to update the product lines with better building suggestions. If any of you would like me to include photos of your duck(s) on the website I will be setting up, feel free to send pictures and any relevent information to me at [email protected]


I myself have built and flown the Agri-Duck and have friends with the Mud Duck Mk I and CricKit. Together we will try to improve the line and are looking at some new models to possibly introduce.

The current line currently includes:

Mud Duck Mk II (kits & plans)
Agri Duck (kits & plans)
Mud Duck Sport .40/.60 (kit)
CricKit (kit)

"On the Drawing Board":

Bipe Duck
Cub Duck
Improved CricKit (more stable)
Electrified versions of nearly all models


Thanks,
Greg

Thanks for the support and continued interest. Sorry for the delayed response.

fast eddie b,

Sorry, no worthwhile news yet. I am trying to finish up some college credits before I dive headfirst into operating MDA as a full time business. I have a website paid for and am 90% in completing it (offline), but school has slowed the progress as of late. You will be able to find it at [link=http://www.mudduckaviation.com]Mud Duck Aviation[/link] but I will not be able to offer all the things on it right away (the available items will be noted).

I currently can supply full size plans, templates, and decals sets for the Mud Duck MkII and Agri-Duck. I have the ability to get some Mud Duck Sport kits (40-60 size / 80 in WS) available for purchase soon. I also have some CricKit kits, but I am trying to make a few modifications to improve stability before re-releasing them.

polstery,

As per my summary above, I do have some things available now, or very soon. What exactly are you interested in right now. I can give you an idea of when/what I can accomplish in the immediate future.

jmupilot,

I'm looking forward to getting some pictures of your Duck! If you feel ambitious enough, feel free to submit a simple modification article for the banner towing and I'll provide that for other builders to consider doing to their own Ducks! I have received several tips and articles from another modeler which will also be posted on the website, this incudes using the Mud Duck as a downlink video platform (which it is ideally suited).



Anyone can reach me easiest and quickest via my email [email protected] If anyone would like to talk by phone I can provide my cell as I currently do not have a dedicated business line.

Thanks Again for all your support!

Greg
